The relegation evening in 1989 was my first visit to Anfield. Have noticed a couple of previous posters have said we took the lead in that game. We didn't, Leroy equalised to make it 1-1. What a balmy evening that was.

Not a massive fan of the Scousers, tend to find them a bit arrogant and hard faced. Add to that all the glory hunters from every corner of the globe. Probably I dislike them more because of our poor record there!?

My biggest memory of them is early eighties I was at Poly in Kingston, a group of us went to the home game against Liverpool (a couple of scousers and a couple of us). We caught the tube all the way from Wimbledon, which takes ages. Queuing up for the North Bank when the shout went up that it was full so we ran right round the ground to Priory Road and got into the South Bank. I should add that my mate Kev looked extremely Scouse - curly blonde perm and a mustache - and with his accent he is not going to open his mouth all game. This bloke starts trying to engage him in conversation "I know you, didn't you go to St so-and-so's junior school" (which he did, the school being a catholic school in Liverpool) but Kev is shaking his head and trying not to say something. Then Kev is muttering to the bloke out of the corner of his mouth, trying not to sound Scouse, "Just shut up and go away". Luckily the guy gave up, or it could have got interesting. Afterwards it was hysterical.

Steve Potts almost beating David James from 35 yards out back in 1995.

Stick your victories. If that had gone in I would have spontaneously combusted

Individual memory of Liverpool is an odd one actually. I think it was a mid week game against them in the 07/08 season on a chilly night. The game was 0-0 into injury time at the end of the 2nd half and we'd had the better chances. Anton and Upson had defended well, but both sides had missed sitters. Then Ljungberg in one of his rare half decent games for us motored up field into the box before he was felled by that lump Carragher. Unusually, a penalty was actually given against Carragher (see also Terry, John for examples of big club centre backs who can foul at will) Nobes dispatches the penalty and we take the 3 points. The journey home was all the more enjoyable!

My overriding memory of them in general is that they get more dodgy decisions and luck against us then any other side over the years.

^^ It was a very good penalty as well from Nobes, passed it into the bottom corner and Reina couldn't reach it. Wild celebrations too!

It was indeed! Right in the corner just out of Reina's reach.

I have been Anfield twice and we lost 4-0 and 4-1. I don't think we had a shot in either game, our goal was actually a Mamadou Sakho own goal :cry:

My memories, Liverpool FC? Heysel and Hillsborough. Always the victims, never their fault! Sorry, but that's what this fixture brings, hence the reason I have refused to go. Always moaning about by hard done they've been.

Also moaning about how great they are and how they should be Champions and playing every year in the Champions League. When will they understand that King Kenny took over a winning team and ruined it and disappeared, before turning up at Blackburn with Walker's money? They haven't been the same since and they even named a stand after him!!!!!!!!!!

ESM Jnr's first ever game (aged 5) at The Boleyn, September 1997. We beat the Mickeys 2-1. I said to him, "This is the greatest club in the world, but it aint always gonna be like this"

I ****ing hate them with a passion that I only adhere to for the Welsh fans at rugby. Bunch of absolute *****. Can't stand their victim mentality and I absolutely **** myself laughing at Slippy G when he ****ed up and gave the ball to Demba Ba. ****.

In short I don't like them.

That dirty **** Steve McMahon butchered Paul Ince IIRC (at 1-1) and from then on it was game over.

I know I'm an old git but beat this one folks. Joined the Royal Signals in September 1963 and was posted to Catterick Camp for basic training. My new scouse mate said he'd take me to Anfield to see some real football and it just so happens that we were playing them. So on the 14th September there I was when we won 2-1 with first half goals from Peters and Hurst. Even then they got their customary penalty which they missed and although Hunt pulled one back we beat them. Little did I know that it would be FIFTY years before we won there again!!! Anyway it was Standen, Kirkup, Burkett, Peters, Bickles, Mooro, Brabrook, Boyce, Byrne, Hurst, Dear. We won the return match as well 1-0! They were champions, we were 14th. But we did get to the League Cup semis, oh and won the FA cup, a game I watched on the TV at Catterick! Superb memories. :D

One of my earliest and best memories against them was the Ince bicycle kick. Remember practising that over and over for weeks after.

Quite a funny game sticks out in my mind from when Ruddock and Dicksy were both playing for them in a white kit with green sleeves and black shorts. Ruddock was f**king about all game talking to the Chicken Run and calling Dicksy fat etc... We lost 2-1 if I recall after going one up early doors.

3-0 home win with two from Deadly Don sticks out too, the season after the above game I think??

The FA Cup Final is the most disappointing obviously.

Then, to round it off,being 3-0 down up there at half time in the 10/11 season sticks out too... An almost apologetic Rob Green clapping us for our amazing support as he went off for the break. An SMS came through from my old man at the same time saying only... 'they don't f**king deserve you lot'.

(I was living in Dubai for the 3-0 win at Anfield but Nelson's bar was rocking and packed full of DXB Hammers that day so it kind of counts! One of many great days in there that season)

The 3-0 win away will live forever with me.

I've hated everything Liverpool for ages, and 2006 really hurt, the one thing i wanted to see was us win up there. Every year you'd go up there and they were so cocky about it being their banker home win of the season, it really annoyed me.

When the 3rd went in that day, everyone in our end knew that not even we could throw that away in injury time. Grown men were crying in the stands, I've never hugged so many people on the way out of a ground before.

The long walk back to the city center\station was great, I had so many calls from people, but the one from my dad was the greatest... as I answered, he just shouted "IRONS" down the phone at me then said to me that I'd "just seen the Holy Grail as a West Ham fan, a win at their place!"

We had a few beer in the city center afterwards, and we brought a few bottles of champagne for the train journey home, what a ride that was :crest:
