With the teams level at 4-4 after 90 minutes, the game went into extra-time. The 'golden goal' was used during extra-time, which meant that whichever team scored first would win and the match would immediately be over. In the 115th minute of the match, Liverpool were awarded a free-kick. It was taken by Gary McAllister and headed into his own goal by Alavés defender Delfí Geli. As a result of the golden goal, Liverpool had won the match 5–4 to win their third UEFA Cup and complete a Treble of trophies, having already won the League Cup and FA Cup.

Winning the UEFA Cup entitled Liverpool to compete in the 2001 UEFA Super Cup against Champions League winners Bayern Munich. Liverpool won the match 3–2 to secure their second Super Cup victory.

The final was played only five weeks after the Hillsborough disaster, in which 96 Liverpool fans were killed in a crush, and before kick-off there was a minute's silence and the teams wore black armbands as a sign of respect. Gerry Marsden, lead singer of Gerry & the Pacemakers, led the crowd in a rendition of his hit 'You'll Never Walk Alone', which had become synonymous with Liverpool Football Club.

The 1974 FA Cup Final between Liverpool and Newcastle United played at Wembley Stadium, London on 4 May 1974.

Final score: Liverpool 3 Newcastle United 0
Liverpool goalscorers: Kevin Keegan 57', 88', Steve Heighway 74'

In a one-sided match Liverpool won 3–0, with goals from Kevin Keegan (2) and Steve Heighway. BBC commentator David Coleman famously said that Newcastle's defence had been "undressed" by Liverpool. Liverpool left back Alec Lindsay had a goal disallowed, although replays later showed the offside pass that supplied Lindsay's 'goal' came from a Newcastle defender, thus meaning the goal should have stood.

It was manager Bill Shankly's last game in charge of Liverpool, as he retired during the 1974 close season and was succeeded by coach Bob Paisley – though Shankly led them out for the Charity Shield match at the start of the next season.

The 1992 FA Cup Final between Liverpool and Sunderland at at Wembley Stadium on 9 May 1992.

Final score: Liverpool 2 Sunderland 0
Liverpool goalscorers: Michael Thomas 47', Ian Rush 68'

It was Liverpool's fifth triumph in the competition, and would be their only major trophy under the management of Graeme Souness, who was appointed a year earlier; while Souness picked the starting line-up, his assistant Ronnie Moran took charge during the match, as Souness was still recovering from heart surgery.

During the presentation, the winning team was mistakenly given the loser's medals and Sunderland found themselves with winning medals. This was later rectified by the players themselves, on the pitch.

The 1965 FA Cup Final between Liverpool and Leeds United at at Wembley Stadium on 1 May 1965.

Score at 90 minutes: Liverpool 0 Leeds United 0

30 Minutes of extra time played.

Full-time score: Liverpool 2 Leeds United 1
Liverpool goalscorers: Roger Hunt 93', Ian St. John 113'
Leeds United goalscorer: Billy Bremner 100'

Liverpool, had won the First Division the previous season and had lost their two previous attempts at the cup (in 1914 and 1950), and Leeds United, had won the Second Division Championship and been promoted the previous season.

The game ran to extra time — the first Final to do so since 1947, and the additional period was played out in an atmosphere of great tension and drama before Liverpool were victorious and won their first-ever FA Cup.

This was the first FA Cup Final to feature a black player: Albert Johanneson.

'86 will always be the runner up to Istanbul for me, possibly because it was right back at the beginning of my support, and coming back from behind against them lot has to make you smile. '89 was a bit special too... a supersub for each side. I guess the cup was the big one back then because of the European ban.

Thanks for the vote and comment, O.J. I didn't realise you were a Kopite too! I must be older than you because I started supporting Liverpool FC in the seventies. I was very upset when we lost the '77 FA Cup Final to Man Utd because we were going for the Treble but I soon got over it when when won the European Cup a few days later. :)

I started supporting Liverpool in '85, it was more by chance than anything else. When I moved into a children's home, half of the kids were United fans and half were Liverpool fans, it was the first real contact I'd had with football and I opted for Liverpool. The poster went up on my noticeboard thing and off I went. It's only recently that I have stepped back a bit, due to some fan and player behaviour. Football just isn't what it was (not that fans were always saints, Heysel tells us that). It's nice to see a bit of the good stuff again though, the new SAS look pretty awesome. I still think the team is a distance from winning a title, but at least they are there or thereabouts. Champion's League is a must though, it's hard to attract players without that on the table.

Now Sturridge and Gerrard are back from injury, I'm confident we can finish in the top four this season. If we do, I hope that Suarez stays. If he doesn't, we can sell him for megabucks and get another really good striker. Can't wait until we are back playing Champions League games again! We are heading in the right direction and I'm sure we will get our first Premier League title in the next few seasons. Hopefully, it will be while Gerrard is still playing for us because he deserves it for his loyalty. :)
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Jan 15 12:26
I agree regarding Gerrard. One side of me would rather see Liverpool cash in on Suarez, but the other side of me asks who the hell can replace him on the field?
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Nov 14 0:13
My top 3: 86 FA Cup final, 74 FA Cup final, and the 77 European Cup. Rush and Aldridge look like twins together.

Another great list for you. I supported Liverpool FC for 10-15 years, and their Champions League Final (Season 2004/2005) was one of the most memorable matches I have ever seen. Bye. ;-)
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Dec 13 10:29
Thanks, Magnis!
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Dec 13 16:49
No problem. I strongly supported Liverpool FC, and your list remembered me about this fantastic club with rich tradition, I really upset they are fall from Champions League on this Season (draw with FC Basel), but they could win a Europa League, especially with Legia Warsaw on Final Match in Poland. Bye ;-)

Kenji: Sorry for not replying to your comment earlier but I only just noticed it after Mangis posted his first remark!

As far as great Liverpool performances are concerned, I agree with your choices. However, I think that the unexpected wins, like comebacks against overwhelming odds and 'topsy turvy' matches that swing one way and then another are more exciting to watch at the time and more enjoyable to watch again afterwards. :)
