My first real season where football got me as a 8 year old.
John Barnes in the Adidas kit, Hillsborough, losing the season in the last minute, that Merseyside FA cup final day.
No wonder I've been completely drawn to the emotional, visceral, dramatic and romantic side of Football and this city ever since.

Thanks oojason, the season before was one of my greatest memories as a Liverpool supporter (hence the username!).  This season was so hard, can't believe that after Hillsborough the team went on to play the league games and the final.  Shows strength of character that they were able to preform the way they did after experiencing what happened.
