Phwoooooar!

Having done the hard work to get back to 2-2 imagine had we lost to a fluke of a goal. No one would have cared everyone would still have laughed at us. Thank god for Stevie.

Cisse's reaction is great, hands on his head, can't believe what just happened.

Kewell off injured again. Rotten luck to be injured for two finals in a row.

Morientes ended up playing quite a lot of that game. Don't remember that at all.

Didnt he get injured in the 05 league cup final as well?

I had to google, but yes he was replaced by Nunez.

Insane save from Reina.  Good job Harewood couldn't stand up by then.

Motson with his obsession with historic facts was more annoying than I remember. I mean hes obviously light years ahead of most of the agenda driven dickheads today but he did go on a bit.

Just saw Luis Garcia then, and God.

Our fitness levels were a bit questionable back then. Two finals in a row in where the players were dead on their feet. The amount of players with cramp in both games!

Thought so.  I think people tend to forget we played in that because we won the CL.  He really was the opposite of a big game player!

I'd forgotten all about it somehow. Incredible save.

I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Cisse's finish is criminally overlooked. If that's the winner in a 2-1 it's in the frame for cup final goal of the decade.
If I were a linesman, I would execute defenders who applauded my offsides.

Same! It was half my lifetime ago. It made me very nostalgic. You always grew up on stories of the glory years, but this era still gave me plenty of fond memories.

Remember this game so clearly..my  baby daughter had died a few months before. I was living in London and my dad who had been ill came to visit her grave about lunch time of the day of the final it had only been two months and remember sobbing my heart out when that goal went as if it came from angels. A few days before I got a signed postcard from Stevie too...my favourite ever goal...(sorry if heavy)

Fuckin ell lad.

Not heavy at all .

Glad I missed that if we did ;D

I still remember the stadium announcer saying "4 minutes" thinking fuck then seeing the ball flying towards us before sheer pandemonium broke out, ripped the shit out of my leg on the seat in front.

I'd staying in Surrey at my mates house the night before and had to go back to get my car before driving home - 4 of us had gone so we hung about in Cardiff to get something to eat and let the traffic die down - bumped into a lot of decent West Ham lads, had a couple of bevvies with them. Felt a bit strange as we did rob them that day ;D

Yep that ball in by Gerrard to Cisse is massively overlooked too, & how lucky was Konchesky's goal, that was a cross.

The Luton game is especially memorable for me as I'd been living in the town for about 6 months at that point and there was a lot of buzz about the visit of a big premier league team.

As well as the oddities about the game already posted I remember Clattenberg awarding a penalty for a Luton player stamping on Carson's foot... outside of the area:


Oh it comes to Divock Origi... he's won the European Cup for Liverpool! The man who cut down Barcelona has taken Tottenham down in Madrid! And it's dreamland worrying times for Liverpool Football Club. Shame really.

I was in row 6 right behind the nets and I’ll never forget the sound of the ball hitting the back of the net for both of Gerrards goals.
A great day out though in the days a season ticket and just getting home credits and the semi guaranteed you a ticket.
Got to say also the semi at old Trafford was absolutely brilliant.. the singing in the stadium after the final whistle and the goading of the Chelsea fans on the long walk back to the car.
Had a great Indian that night as well. Bloody fantastic.
