    Seeing us beat Crystal Palace away 6-1.

    I was about 6.

    We're going back 21 years here, this is why I started supporting us.

    When the news broke about the Hillsborough disaster and my parents being so upset about it, I was 9 at the time, didn't fully understand what was going on, but admired the way the footballers all rallied together to give the bereaved families support. Before then I wasn't really a big follower of footballer but started supporting the club from then on, nothing to do with the football but in admiration of the clubs spirit and sense of togetherness..

    I watched that video before coming into the forum, and the really sad, worrying and annoying thing about it is that of all those people interviewed, not a single one of them was a Scouser.

    I fully understand that LFC is now a global brand, but to not have even one local represented is, quite frankly, shocking. Poor form lfctv.

    Mine was watching us on the telly in the early '60s, and then the FA Cup Final in 1965.

    Earliest memory for me is Owen's first hat-trick against Newcastle.

    I think the first proper memory was probably in 1984 and Ian Rush was on the news because he won the Golden boot and I was like hey that guy plays for the team I support so i felt some pride although I wasn't really into football at that point but i was foced to support Liverpool when I was 5. Shortly after was the European cup which I don't remember much of apart from Grobbelaar and his funny legs. When your a kid that sort of thing stands out but I remember the celebrations afterwards and pretending to be happy without really having much of a clue what was going on. The following year I went to my first match and again I don't remember much apart from eating sweets and fizzy drink but I also remember seeing Ian Rush and being amazed because the guy from the telly was in front of me.

    '95 Coca Cola Cup Final.

    McManaman's MOTM performance, with a brilliant brace.
    McAteer scored a great goal for Bolton also, and then we signed him.

    I thought it was Thompson who got Bolton's goal that day. Admittedly I was t the other end of the ground though and the view was not always great in the lower placed seats at Wembley

    Liverpool v Bolton in the Coca-Cola Cup final. Must have been on BBC or UTV because I watched it at home with my Dad. Won 2-1 I believe.

    Also around that time I think was a 2-2 draw with United. United were 2-0 up at half time and I was nearly in tears, demanding we leave the pub. Then Ince scored a second to equalise and I learned the valuable lesson that a match is never over until the final whistle.

    I think the 2-2 was in 99. We all thought we had stopped them winning the title and thus the treble, but it wasn't to be

    Probably my brother signing ''L-I-V-E-R-P-DOUBLE O-L-LIVERPOOL FC'' to me at about the age of 4 to try and make sure I grew up to support LFC Earliest match would be quite late really relatively, some European game under Ged about 2000 maybe.

    What's your earliest LFC memory?

    Albert Stubbins rampaging up and down the pitch like a frisky dray horse.

    My dad doing some weird mix of dance and song in the livingroom after we won the title in 1990. I was 6. I didnt really get onboard until of couple years later, but the strongest memory I have from when I was a kid is probably the 4-3 against Newcastle during easter in 96?

    Im a young lad so probably my dad taking me to Anfield for my first game about 10 years ago (could be more or less, not a clue). Was two rows from the back of the Kop and it was deafening back then, even against Villa. Remember it being extremely sunny, the pitch looked the best it ever has, and we scored 2. Thats about all i can remember!

    On 12 April 1963 we beat Spurs 5-2 at Anfield.
    On 15 April, just 3 days later, we were thrashed 7-2 at White Hart Lane.
    I remember my elder brother showing me the Echo reports of both games.
    The next season we won the league; then the cup in the next; then the league the one after that.

    It reminds me of Sir Bob's immortal quotation, "Mind you, I've been here during the bad times too - one year we came second".
