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. They were made of sort of red cloth rather than wool or nylon, with thin white stripes running lengthways. Several classes above the silk scarf era (‘Shankly’s Allstars’ indeed!), that preceded them, in fact several classes above any football scarf I’ve ever seen.
