It was screened at Anfield on a big screen or two- Can't quite remember how many - As only seven at the time. The biggest thing ever that match. People were talking about nothing else from the draw to - well the end of the season. Bragging rights meant something then. The weather was foul all of that week, and one of the screens blew over a couple of days before the match. Liverpool obviously sold tickets to watch it from the terraces.
The technology behind that was massive in those days - Outside broadcast trucks at both Goodison and Anfield. A definite 'one-off' because of the interest the match generated.
I thought it was the end of the World when Alan Ball's miss-hit cross blew straight into the Red's net. The wind was a howler that night! But then I thought the World had ended when we were turned over 5-1 by a Cruyff-inspired Ajax in the Amsterdam fog the season before! I couldn't eat my tea on both occasions - because the results knocked me sick!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gc7Qco4MDQ
I never got a ticket for the actual game at Goodison or went to the Anfield screening, but my two brothers were at Goodison in the Park End that night. The match was rammed, and the atmosphere really tense. Everton were seen as the slightly better side then. i think Liverpool sold about ten thousand tickets for the big screens. Emotions after losing were raw for years - As the bitters never let you forget about it - That is until the FA Cup Semi of 1971, where we got our revenge big time!
