Memories of the first game you attended

Recommended Posts

My first game I ever attended at Anfield was Billy Liddels last game for LFC reserves. I still clearly remember to this day the thousands of young supporters invading the pitch as Billy's team mates carried him shoulder high to the dug out. Think it was 1960.

1984/85, though I can't remember who we played. I barely looked at what was happening on the pitch, as I was far too buying playing myself at Connect 4. Ian Rush scored and my dad, who was fuming, dragged me out of the ground. I went to bed that night and dreamt of us getting relegated.

A load of old cunts in here as well

 

Oi not so much of the old.....

January 1965 WBA v Liverpool 3rd round FA cup. My uncle was a massive Baggies fan and had taken his 9 year old nephew to see his team, hoping I'd be inspired. I was; by the magnificent men in red. Ron Yeats was imperious (albeit he gave away a strange penalty, picking up the ball in the penalty area after hearing a whistle, which came from the crowd. Justice done when they missed the penalty). Sir Roger and the Saint scored and we went on to win the Cup.

Not my first game (which was an 8-0 win against Munich 1860 but found this whilst looking for it. The young centre forward Cruyff looks half decent but we did miss some terrible bleedin sitters that night.

Wednesday 30th August 1995

 

Liverpool 1 - 0 QPR

(Ruddock 29)

 

 

The day of my 11th birthday, I'll never forget it. It was an awful game of football punctuated by a pretty scruffy goal by that pound passing jobber. I was in the Anfield Road End that day and I have barely missed home matches since and yet I have only been back in there 3 or 4 times.

 

I was hooked. I had asked for it as a birthday present, dad had never wanted to impose football on me and was made up when I wanted to go as he got to rekindle his younger days when he used to go home and away.

Home v WBA at the start of the 77/78 season, we won 3-0. Before the game we decided to go up the stairs which brought you out at the top of the kop terracing. Fantastic it was seeing Anfield for the first time.

 

First away game was at Birmingham the same season, Ray Kennedy scored with a header after 75 seconds to win us the game. After the game the bus that we were on to take us back to New St got ambushed by Birmingham fans. It seemed like the only window that didn't get smashed was the drivers windscreen. Fucking mad it was.

25th November 1961, my 8th birthday and that was the present I really wanted. My Dad, my Uncle, my brother and I went in the old, old Kemlyn Road. We beat Swansea 5-0. I can't remeber much about the game but do remember being impressed by the crowd as they roared on the reds. I was hooked. We couldn't afford going in the stands again so my brother and I started going in the Boys Pen for the rest of the season, which was 'educational'.

Liverpool v Villa at Anfield in September '86. 3-3. Went with my older brother and sat in the Kemlyn. Don't remember much about the game itself apart from awe and disbelief at seeing Kenny playing, some outrageous refereeing and the Villa fans singing 'Villa reject' to Steve McMahon - right up to the moment he rifled one into the top corner from the edge of the area.

Against Middlesbrough I think but the pre match build up was better than the game. I had just started seeing this girl from whiston and I'd had a quick fondle the week before but we went to hers before the game and she had her bedroom in the loft so we climbed the ladder and she whipped off her jumper to display an angelic set of norks so we missed the first half as you do as I was going for a score draw..

8th September 1979.  I was 13 years old.  My brother-in-law gave us a lift across from Runcorn.  As he spent ages driving around trying to find somewhere to park, travel-sickness got the better of me.  He had to make an emergency stop, so I could open the door and spew.  When I looked up, I realised we were right outside Goodison.  I enjoyed spewing there.

 

We left shortly before the end.  As we were leaving, I turned around for a final look and saw David Johnson score his second and Liverpool's fourth.

Mine was in that Munich 1860 game Frank and that was in the boys pen. My cousin took me (I was about 8) and remember having tears in my eyes because the Kop were booing Liverpool when they touched the ball and cheering Munich. (obviously due to the score)

 

That boys pen was a scary place though unless you were with a gang yourself. Pay to get in then find yourself caged in with gangs of feral fuckers intent on having off anything of value you had on you. Halcyon days.

1979, Prenton Park, League Cup vs Tranmere, stood in the Kop end with my dad. A dull 0-0 draw however when the ball went behind and was thrown forward by a fan at the back at the terrace, it hit me on the head and then bounced onto the pitch. In my mind, I headed it straight to the arms of Ray Clemence

8th September 1973 v Chelsea in the old first division. We won 1-0 with a first half goal from Kevin Keegan and Keegan missed a second half penalty when it was saved by Peter Bonetti.

I remember the colour and brightness of the pitch and the player's kits and it was a lovely sunny day.

Thanks to the brilliant LFCHistory.net for refreshing my memory.

Have you read the old Times match reports on there? It's like they were written by Charles Dickens.

Liverpool v England in Alan Hansens testimonial, 1988.

 

my Dad took me, It was 2 days after the FA Cup final and we must have been in Anny Road as main thing I remember is a massive flag on the Kop with a poem on it, the last 2 lines were something like 

 

'Fagan's treble was no trouble

Now Kenny's took us to the double double'

 

with a line through the last double and 'oops' written on it.  Love to know if anyone can recall the rest of that.  

 

Other thing I can remember is being dead proud when a fella said he liked my t-shirt, which was the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles all wearing Liverpool tops.  33 I was.

My Dad wouldn't take me so he went with my Uncle and cousins to watch it while I watched it with my other cousins at my Uncle and Auntie's house. Gutted I missed it like.

My first game was the Fowler eating the grass derby! 1 down after 45 seconds. Fuck me. We hadn't beaten the bitters in 5 years I think. Still, absolute bonkers game, and it was Gerrards first derby too. April 1999 it was. Lovely sunny day also. Won 3.2 thanks to Gerrard saving twelvety off the line, mostly from Jeffers and cadamarteri, the dreadlocked twat

 

Only down side is that I had to go with my severely cuntish ex as she had got it for me as a Christmas present, the cunting cunt! She's a part time fucking Manc to boot.

 

Anyway, great memories.
