From the worst to the best in a ‘single’ step…

18 Dec

I opened yesterday’s column talking about Liverpool and Brentford, and it got me thinking.

Not about our epic 88/89 FA Cup run, which culminated in an Anfield quarter-final, featuring that immortal moment of commentary from the late Tony Gubba as (now) Premiership Liverpool were almost given the fright of their lives:

““No Offside!! Cadette!!! Ohhh, he’s missed!! Sinton’s lovely little ball and Richard Cadette, top scorer with seventeen goals this season… how close did he come to putting this quarterfinal? Well, it would have been dreamland for Brentford, wouldn’t it? It was inches wide of the post. And that…silenced the Kop”.

It was more about music. The Bees and the Reds share a collective link, with Brentford’s club song, ‘Hey Jude’, being made famous by the Beatles – the biggest thing to come out of Liverpool until John Barnes became Tranmere manager.

To read the rest of this article, season 2013/14 is now available to download onto Kindle, in full. Containing previously unseen content, you can do so here for less than the cost of one matchday programme.

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.
