Really enjoyed watching the 79 cup final on ITV a couple of weeks back.

Anyway tomorrow at 5pm on ITV it is the 89 Anfield match :barscarf:
Yep, there is nothing like hearing Brian Moore saying "its up for grabs now, Thomaaaaas!".
Or Pleat saying “somewhat poetic justice
:blah: :blah: :censored:

As he says on Fever Pitch: "Oh! Shut Up Pleat" :lol: :lol: :lol:

There was something about listening to YNWA as ITV did the scarf swaying bit homage , knowing that tears were about to flow.

Yeah! Especially that utter C.U.N.T (The're all c.u.n.t.s but you know what I mean :wink: ) in the top hat with all the badges etc...

Don't know how many home fans could fit into anfield back then.. :rubchin: let's say 40,000 (of which only 30 paid) it still surprises me that after we WON they didn't start a campaign along the lines of 'justice for the the 40,000 - We want our money back'. :D

I can remember the press saying it was a game too far for the scousers, that the emotion of Hillsborough prevented them winning the league.

Strange that It didn’t prevent them winning the re-arranged semi with Forest or the cup final v Everton or walloping West Ham the previous week 5-1, anybody who didn’t know different might suspect it was just excuses for a team of bad losers, who couldn’t handle being beaten at home 2-0.

One thing that struck me on that night was in the kop was a not-insignificant amount of Gooners right in the middle from memory. And when smith scored, you could see Gooners getting up in the seats in the pool end.

I had that thrown at me by a plastic Victims fan, I pointed out the logical answer being that Liverpool had played several games between Hillsborough and May 26th and the last one was the only they lost.
When Liverpool celebrated winning the FA Cup at Wembley the previous week it wasn't an issue. In fact there were apparently "words" between Liverpool players and their fans who were on the pitch. The players felt the fans were taking from their glory
