Excelling yourself again, Jason.

*Doffs Cap*

It just shows the difference between then and now. The game was more real and even the very best had bad results. Some results there would be seen as disastrous today.

Some things don't change though. Like the Kop singing "You'll win fuck all again, Everton, Everton..."  ;D

I'm only viewing on my phone so the image isn't great when I zoom in but, yes, it does look like Avi.

Incredible. This is wonderful. 1981-82 is my favourite season of all seasons. The change of guards. The emergence and rise of Rush, Whelan, Lawrenson, Grobbelaar and Johnston. Souness being made captain. And most of all, the genius of Bob Paisley was on display for all to see

One small disappointment - there was no clip for the turnaround game - the 4-0 FA Cup 3rd Round win at Swansea

Those were the days when you bought a couple of players just in case one of the '12' got injured. They got little game time and there was little in the way of rotation. Same team every week with Craig Johnston appearing in the second half.


For those who missed it, Avi was killed in a car crash in 2010, he played 18 games for us and that was in the days when signing someone from outside England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland was quite exotic. Around the time Spurs bought Ardiles and Villa which was a seismic leap at the time.

For those who missed it, Avi was killed in a car crash in 2010, he played 18 games for us and that was in the days when signing someone from outside England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland was quite exotic. Around the time Spurs bought Ardiles and Villa which was a seismic leap at the time.

Fuck. I probably heard that but have no memory of it, had a lot going on in 2010.

My fave memory of Avi is him scoring an OG to put Villa level at 1-1 and then scoring his first goal in front of the Kop to put us 2-1 up and us winning the game 4-1 and therefore the league.

I wore a coat that day and was sewating my bollocks off in the middle of the Kop and had older fellas taking the piss out of me.

Thanks for this. I went to nearly every game, home and away, that season. Highlight was the win at Old Trafford. Lowlight was throwing away a 3-1 lead at Brighton in the last 12 minutes.  It threw it down all day and, to this day, I regret not saying hello to John Peel who I saw on the terraces whilst entering the ground.

The last away at Middlesbrough was memorable for, shall we say, differing reasons both inside and outside the ground.

I was young then but I’m sure I remember Rush having a shot against Brighton which got stuck in the mud

Born in ‘73, this was the first season I really remember. What a team they were. I went to the League Cup final (and I still have the programme somewhere) my first ever Liverpool match - it wasn’t until ‘85 that I went to Anfield though. So I can’t say that I ever saw Souness play. I met him once in hotel though, very scary he was back then I didn’t dare ask for his autograph!

Watching the video of the game on the link, it appears that one of Brighton’s goals didn’t go over the line and we never complained!

Another memory is the Special to Exeter. There was only about 200 on it. It was just after Shanks died. A steward sombrely walked down the train giving out postcard sized pictures of Shanks with the FA Cup in 1974. I am chuckered now just thinking about that moment.

I still have the picture.

Thanks for this. My first season where the whole league table made sense and when my full geekdom kicked in. Was under the kitchen table with the lights off and the radio for that 1-0 at Old Trafford.

yeah, I was there as well, Villa were far more than decent (they won the league the next year and were european champions in 1982). I think that was Avi's only goal and what a big one as it could have easily been United winning the league without that.

John Peel regularly attended our games in those days didn't he. Saw him in the Park on one occasion.

Middlesbrough away was always a bundle of laughs. Seemed to play them towards the end of the season most years and often midweek. Stuck in that small, open corner of the ground, behind all that mesh fencing and a long trek back to the relative sanctuary of the station after the match.

Thanks for all the kinds words everyone - they are very much appreciated :wave

If anyone knows of a quality video or article I've missed out, and would like to see it included in the above 81/82 post (or any of these 'older title' threads), just let me know and I'll add it.



Incredible. This is wonderful. 1981-82 is my favourite season of all seasons. The change of guards. The emergence and rise of Rush, Whelan, Lawrenson, Grobbelaar and Johnston. Souness being made captain. And most of all, the genius of Bob Paisley was on display for all to see

One small disappointment - there was no clip for the turnaround game - the 4-0 FA Cup 3rd Round win at Swansea

I recently found and added a video for it mate ;D  (the fantastic Dave Waller posted a video of it a week or so ago on his quality youtube channel)
