Thanks kavah - just the 1965/66 and 1963/64 league winning seasons to do now, plus a few 'players from our past' posts. The league posts shouldn't take too long as there's not too many videos on those seasons, unfortunately. Glad you and the others like these threads, mate.


Edit: Also thanks to everyone else in here for your kind words - they are very much appreciated. If anyone knows of a quality video or article on the 1972/73 season please let me know, and I'll add it to the above post. Thanks again ;D

These are great threads Jason. Cheers mate.

I'll echo that. Great memories there.

As a matter of interest I was checking you tube to see if there was any footage of Shanks taking Gordan Banks (Stoke and England Goalkeeper who lost an eye the night after playing at Anfield that season) on a lap of honour the following season before Liverpool played Stoke. Unfortunately nothing it seems.

These threads are great. Got anything from the 1901/1906 title winning seasons though ? ;D

Some of the newspaper clippings from the LFC archive site are really good finds, just looking through the AEK Athens one now, interesting stuff on ticket prices being raised with Main Stand seats being £1 and Paddock tickets 55 pence.

Also. 'Liverpool are England's most experienced European competitors having been involved in nine successive seasons, but still await a final victory'

I'll echo that. Great memories there.

As a matter of interest I was checking you tube to see if there was any footage of Shanks taking Gordan Banks (Stoke and England Goalkeeper who lost an eye the night after playing at Anfield that season) on a lap of honour the following season before Liverpool played Stoke. Unfortunately nothing it seems.

amazing scenes as Banks approached the Kop..25,000 broke out in chant of "Gordon, Gordon"....probably only time we ignored Shanks

Once again Jason, fantastic work.

The first two games of the season were my first two visits to Anfield. Seems scarcely believable now but it was Man City followed four days later by Man United. Combined attendance of 110,000. Awe-inspiring for a young kid. Never seen any TV film of the United match. I'm sure you tried to find some, but mid-week games rarely got covered then.

I was once saw some German film (I think) of the UEFA CUP Final first leg at Anfield. It may have even been the abandoned match. It was YNWA in its entirety - a heaving, packed Kop with loads of banners including an unusually large one that said 'Liverpool-Champions' that resembled the long ones we do today at the front of the Kop. Would love to see that up here, but I can't find it.

Nice one Jason, fair play to you. I was born in '72 so I'm looking forward to watching all of these.

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone - it means a lot.

Nice one Jason, fair play to you. I was born in '72 so I'm looking forward to watching all of these.

Nice one mate - I was born in '73 so I was looking forward to doing this specific season. If you find or remember any content online from the 72/73 season, please post it up ;D
