we'll look back after all the trophies we win in the next few seasons and see that we won them all on this night because of this game. It was the big bang of Klopps universe.

Get Shearer out of the studio and into the commentary box from now on!

Brilliant commentary that.

Stunning - such a great listen. Shearer's pretty prosaic on MotD, but it's great to hear him properly fired up.

I wonder if any of the younger fans 'get' the radio coverage? I spent my pre-teen years avidly listening to matches on the radio, before progressing on to 'watching' the scores come through on ceefax/Teletext. The joys of hearing a goal go in on radio (I loved the Dalglish equaliser in stoppage time v Arsenal in our mammoth FA cup replays), the joys of seeing a goal flash up on Teletext. The agony of having to sit and wait through 3 pages of scores (alphabetical) and if the TV signal wasn't good, you might even have missed your page! Great innocent times.

Listening to a crackly reception to Elton Welsby’s matter of fact announcement that Tosh had just scored at Barca before going off to describe our shorts or something, leaving us to work our if we really had scored. 😀

Listening to games on the radio was so tense! Trying to picture scenes in your mind and then waiting on crowd noise to tell you what’s happened a split second before the commentators did. Was brilliant.

And yes, think you could probably devote an entire thread to favourite Ceefax moments. :D

On a similar note, I ‘saw’ our golden goal winner in Dortmund via text commentary in an Internet cafe in Christchurch, NZ. That wasn’t so good!

It definitely adds to it, we've had numerous great European nights over the past few years but just lost out in the finals to Seville and Read Madrid so to go all the way and win it this year makes it mean even more.

I've heard others [non Liverpool supporters of course] complain about us booing players in possession, that it's a c*nt thing to do.

No wonder their support is shit in comparison.

The amount of people who come out with that line is fucking ridiculous. 'Disrespectful' apparently. They genuinely think it is about an active disrespect or hate or their team, rather then trying everything possible to give us the advantage. Which is why they won't ever be experiencing these kinds of nights.

I'm 23. Absolutely love the radio.

Didn't have Sky (or online access to ;D) until I was 18. Used to sit, huddled up, rocking myself into a quiet frenzy as Liverpool played. Still remember Alan Green's commentary of Torres destroying Vidic time after time back in '08 (I think). Think it was the last game I listened to at my nan's before she died.

Ha yep, i remember watching the scores come through on Ceefax/Teletext many a time mostly midweek matches as i was  quite often out & about on Saturdays, i didn't listen to the radio much though. In those days radio commentary for midweek matches started 8pm, even though matches kicked off 7.30pm, also if Liverpool & Everton were playing at the same time, Radio Merseyside would only have full match commentary from who was away ^ reports from the other match, unless it was an all ticket sell out like Liverpool v Man Utd.

This was such a weird evening for me... few days before I'd matched with a girl on a dating site who turned out to be a red and we spent the evening messaging each other about the unfolding drama (having already vaguely arranged a date for the following weekend). Drunkenly messaging each other into the night about how amazing the result was etc...

Next day she tells me she doesn't want to meet anymore as she didn't feel there was a connection between us!

Still, I'll admit I got over it about 3 weeks later.

It all seems so far away now, but it was the norm to be huddled around a radio listening to games you couldn't get to. I remember listening to Liverpool clinch the title at Wolves in 1976 on a radio with a mate in his parents' shed. I jumped so high when we got the third that I punched the ceiling. Happy memories.  :)

It's also great seeing this thread continually active. Not surprising though. Even now I'm not sure I've quite grasped just how epic this performance was. I think a lot of other fans feel the same too.

There was something exciting about listening to games on the radio. I listened to Radio City commentary and the game playing out in my head with only commentary and crowd noise was a buzz.

Yep Kenny's last gasp equaliser against Arsenal was exhilarating. I also have vivid memories  of the Wolves match in 76, of Fairclough's  winner against St Ettiene and the Barnes equaliser against Watford (or was it Luton, maybe not so vivid in this case!)in the cup semi final in 86. Peter Jones and Alan Parry were a constant part of my life back in those days.

It's a classic already. Very few teams beat Barca with Messi & Co. They're a great side and 4-0 is an outstanding result. TAA's corner for the 4th is pure gold.

Forgot about that!
 Robertson off at HT too.

Deliberate, snide and shithouse from Suarez, definitely wanted to injure him. I was disappointed with the approach of the Barca players in terms of play acting, time wasting and calling for players to be booked - and that includes Messi. They've gone down in my estimation and I'm glad we put the cheats out.

It's world class level shit-housery from Suarez. But when he did it for us it was a massive asset. I remember after Madrid last year saying that Suarez is exactly the type of c*nt that we needed in the team for games like that. Ramos might have thought twice about fucking up Salah if he knew that he himself would get fucked up by Suarez.

I think we have now solved that issue of lacking the nastiness. It's like everyone in the team has just stepped up the level of grit required to deal with shit-house teams. Fabinho is a massive asset putting in bone crunching tackles, Henderson could make a brick wall wince in pain,  seeing Robo niggle Messi, Milner the dead leg expert....we won't be fucked with.

I always thought that the commentaries from the games on the continent had a different vibe to them on both TV and radio. The commentaries always sounded distant, echoey and of poor quality - I think, and I may be wrong, but the commentators used to use telephone lines. In those days I bet the cost of trunk calls accounted for a large part of the budget of the broadcasters! If you listen to the commentary below, I mean this one's a classic, but you can tell the commentator is in some far away distant land - it's so atmospheric (literally) and you knew Liverpool were playing in yet another important European tie on foreign shores. You wouldn't even know where half of these places were, and hearing names such as CSKA Sofia, Anderlecht would immediately trigger your imagination about these places - how far away are they, what are the people like, I wonder what it must be like to live there? It was probably the closest that I got to going abroad as a kid.

I used to spend a lot of time at my nan's in Kirkby when I was a kid and she was Liverpool FC mad, on a Saturday afternoon whenever there was a Liverpool match on she'd have the commentary on from Radio City. My grandad would be in the living room watching wrestling and the gee-gee's on World of Sport and I'd be in the kitchen with my nan listening to the match. One of the things that sticks in my mind is the jingle, who knows how many times I've heard this:-
