"Watched" Extra Time via Text Commentary in an Internet Cafe in Christchurch having got up early, gone to a Casino only to be told it wasn't being televised in new Zealand. Rang my Mum to commentate down the phone for a bit who broke news of Jordi Cruff's equaliser. She was no Jacqui Oatley!

It was like the most nerve wracking game of Football manager ever!

Alaves. Fuck me. Some of my first memories as a fan. I see they're right down on the wrong end of the 2nd division. Sort of a big team in L'pool's history when we think about it. Hope they can recover.

Today In History
September 11th
1982 Luton Town (Division One) Anfield 3-3
Graeme Souness 32' Ian Rush 44' Craig Johnston 75'
Att 33,694

This was featured on ESPN a couple of years back. Lutons front line of Brian Stein and Paul Walsh caused us all sorts of bother, full credit to Luton who just wouldnt fold their tent despite coming up against us at Anfield and doing so with all sorts of problems. Luton took the lead through Stein but a stunning volley from captain Graeme Souness drew us level with the ball crashing in off the post past goalkeeper Jake Findlay. Just before half time Souness was involved again as his perfectly weighted pass allowed Ian Rush to round goalkeeper Kirk Stephens and make it 2-1.

Luton refused to roll over though and shortly into the second half Stein lobbed Grobbelaar for 2-2 and they took the lead once more when David Moss gave them a surprise 3-2 lead down at the Kop End. With 15 minutes left substitute Craig Johnston made it 3-3 when he scored past Luton keeper Mal Donaghy.

Hang on, wait a second, whats going on here?

Findlay was in goal? then Stephens ? then Donaghy............. yep thats right, this was in the days before the bench had 7 players, or even 2. Back then there was just one sub on the bench and it was always an outfield player, so with the score at 1-1 Luton were forced to rejig when Findlay picked up an injury so with no keeper on the bench Kirk Stephens had to go in goal. Stephens was then beaten by Ian Rush, but to be fair there wasnt much he could do.

For some reason when Luton emerged for the second half, Mal Donaghy was then in goal, with Luton using their one sub to replace their injured keeper, it meant Stephens resumed his normal role and Donaghy took over the nets. He was beaten by Craig Johnstone, remarkably so it meant all 3 Liverpool goals were against 3 different goalkeepers.




just seen that, good quiz question
