Liverpool: Celebrate their 1986 success

Liverpool: Celebrate their 1986 success

1989 v Everton: After Hillsborough:

The second all-Merseyside final in four seasons was played only five weeks after the Hillsborough disaster, when 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives at the semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

Just as he had done three years previously, Ian Rush broke the Toffees' hearts with two goals, both of which came in extra-time. Stuart McCall's brace of equalisers, which consisted of an 89th-minute leveller and a stunning extra-time volley was not enough to stop Liverpool winning the FA Cup, which which went some way to making up for their final-day defeat to Arsenal which cost them the First Division title.

1986 v Everton: The first Double:

Liverpool completed a league and cup double, thanks to Rush's pair and a Craig Johnston goal, all of which came after Gary Lineker's opener for Everton, who led at half-time.

The match is also remembered as being the first final in which one of the teams did not feature an Englishman in their starting line-up. Steve McMahon was named as the Reds' solitary substitute, but player-manager Kenny Dalglish chose a team featuring four Scots, three Irishmen, and a representative each from Wales, Denmark, Australia and Zimbabwe.

1974 v Newcastle: Farewell Shanks:

Bill Shankly's final match in charge of Liverpool was a comfortable 3-0 victory over Newcastle, with future Toon idol Kevin Keegan scoring twice, either side of a Steve Heighway strike.

The after-match celebrations make great viewing for Liverpool fans, but the Newcastle supporters among the 100,000 crowd were also treated to some pre-match entertainment by a young and pacy Bruce Forsyth. Nice to see you...

1965 v Leeds: The first of seven

Liverpool's first FA Cup win came after a tense final against Don Revie's Leeds United.

The game finished goalless before extra-time stikes from Roger Hunt and Ian St John - either side of Billy Bremner's equaliser for Leeds - ensured the Reds finished the season on a high note after a seventh-placed finish in the Division One.

The 1965 final was also the first to feature a black player - United's Albert Johnanneson. The first 90 minutes were short on excitement, with the Liverpool support keeping themselves entertained with this rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.

1992 v Sunderland: Souness heartened

Despite being handed the losers' medals by the Duchess of Kent, Liverpool won their fifth FA Cup by beating Sunderland - then of Division Two.

Graeme Souness was back on the bench to see his side run out 2-0 winners, just days after the Reds boss left hospital having undergone triple heart bypass surgery.

After breaking Liverpool's hearts three years previously with the goal that won Arsenal the First Division title at Anfield, Michael Thomas played a major role in Liverpool's win. The midfielder scored a wonderful opener early in the first half before laying on the second for Rush.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
