    An American’s Trip to Anfield

    By David Poulnot Jr. “Liverpool is special in a way that only those who are lucky enough to experience the club close up can understand.”  – Pepe Reina No Pasarán: Goodbye Jose.

    The First Time I Ever Saw The Reds – #4

    By Alex Tate (Tattva). On the far side of my primary school was a field. It marked the end of London Transport’s Zone 6 in North Kent, so it was an easy train ride from Meopham to Wembley. The Wembley I grew up with no longer exists, there are a few photographs and some tucked [...]

    Ghosts Of Christmases Past

    Ghosts Of  Christmases Past

    It’s almost a cliché that the Christmas period shapes how a season unfolds. Those at the top at New Year usually win the league, those in the relegation spots usually get relegated etc etc. With games coming thick and fast whilst the rest of the country is wedged and bloated on the settee and either [...]

    MEMORABLE GAMES: Notts Forest (H) April 1988

    When and if the day of reckoning finally comes and we play our last game at Anfield, if St Etienne is the one that most Kopites recall as the best atmosphere ever, then surely it will be 13th April 1988 they recall as the best performance in living memory.

    Stamford Bridge. The final game of the season. The league title at stake. Not 2010, however, but 1986. Chris Rowland looks back on when Liverpool were the kings, and Chelsea were the jealous wannabes.

    MEMORABLE GAMES: Nottingham Forest (a) 1977

    Two League /European trophy doubles, back-to-back, champions of England, champions of Europe – we were now indisputably top of the pile. A new design of scarf came out, carrying just that message; ‘champions of England, champions of Europe’ below the club crest in a triumphal scroll and ‘Supporters all over the world’ emblazoned above it.

    MOST MEMORABLE GAMES: St Etienne, March 1977

    MOST MEMORABLE GAMES: St Etienne, March 1977

    Clinching the League at Molineux in May 1976 and adding the UEFA Cup was only the start of the most golden period in the Reds’ history – though of course you didn’t know at the time what was coming.
