One of those events where people will ask: "Where were you the last time we beat Liverpool at Anfield?" Remember tonight. They don't come along every week. In 1974 when Ian Brennan scored the goal that beat the Reds at Anfield, they weren't that far ahead of us. Their domination of English football...

Re: 12 years ago

I was absolutely gutted walking off that match. But I think if someone had told me that 12 years later we’d have spent half that time in the Premier League, beaten all of the big six at least once including wins at Anfield and Old Trafford, and played in Europe, I may have been slightly consoled.

Spot on with that. Scored from the third attempt and it was days before Spurs.

That Spurs game is 38 years ago today by the way and would have been Brian Miller’s 84th birthday.
Perhaps, like lots of world record stats, it doesn’t count if it’s wind assisted and McDonagh’s goal definitely was!
