The Rafa-lution has begun at Anfield, it's the rise of the incREDibles!

At the start of the season there was a nervous excitement at Anfield. With a new manager and some potentially excellent signings Liverpool looked to improve on their performances in previous seasons. With the power of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, Liverpool looked realistically to claim fourth spot in the league to secure Champions League football again. However they weren't to acheive that goal, having an almost Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde complexion in their league fixtures.

The season was far from a disappointment though. Losing in extra time to Chelsea in the Carling Cup was an admirable performance however Liverpool saved their best for the cream of them all: the European Champions League. Round after round Liverpool were condemned as the underdogs, yet again and again they came out on top against the likes of Juventus and a very sweet revenge mission on Chelsea. The best was yet to come though! In possibly the greatest final of all time. Liverpool - led by the inspirational Steven Gerrard - clawed back a half time 3-0 deficit to none other than the giants of European football, A.C.Milan, eventually securing victory in a penalty shoot-out with Jerzy Dudek reprising Bruce Grobelaar's infamous 'wobbly legs' antics from 1984.

Featuring every goal from every game this season, highlights from the Carling Cup and extensive review of the Champions League, including footage from the spectacular match which contained every emotion for the watching millions, as AC Milan 's 3 - 0 half time lead was washed away in a tide of red!

We didn't win it in 1999 by being battered for 90 minutes and then fluking it in injury time.

Oh we won most of out group games too.
Thats why the Trophy that man u won in 1999 is permanently on display in the LFC museum and can be seen for about a fiver :whistling:
Clarence must be an envious manc or a blue.......
Cmon you mighty reds :D
In your dreams

Think it would be in your dreams to have five European Cups in your trophy cabinet..:giggle: :giggle:
Was this the year they came back from 3-0 against a team that have since been done for match-fixing?
In Instanbul, we won it 5 times...5 times...!!!
In Athens, we won it 6 times...6 timessss!!!
It's only on loan ;)
Thanks for this voted hot! Currently out of stock but have ordered one anyway
Being a Liverpool fan or not this is a superb insight into how the most successful team in Britain became even more successful.

Oh, and for the person who said that Milan were later found guilty of match fixing so that's why they lost, they were match fixing to WIN games, not LOSE IN THE EUROPEAN CUP FINAL.

A reminder to everyone just how it went;

The year is 2007 and little bluenose Duncan is talking to his bluenose Dad.

SON - “Dad, my mates in school told me that Liverpool won the European Cup for the 5th time in 2005‚ are they right dad?

DAD - “Yes son, it's true, but they were dead lucky son, all the way through the tournament!"

SON - “Why dad?

DAD - “Well in the group stages they had a dead easy draw"

SON - “What dad, did they have a team from Azerbaijan, Israel, and Ireland in their group?"

DAD - “Well no, they had Monaco, Deportivo la Coruna, and Olympiakos"

SON - “Well they still sound like 3 easy teams to me dad‚"

DAD - “Actually Monaco reached the final the year before, Olympiakos had won their league 7 times out of the previous 8 seasons, and Deportivo finished above the galacticos of Real Madrid in their league."

SON - “Jeez dad, that sounds like quite a difficult group then"

DAD - “yeh I suppose your right son, but they were still lucky, it took a mishit shot by Gerrard against Olympiakos to get through."

SON - “oh is that the goal were your hero Andy Gray goes berserk shouting “you beauty, you beauty, what a hit son, what a hit!!!!"

DAD -“yes son it is"

SON - “oh ok. Well what happened in the last 16 dad, who did they draw?

DAD - “Bayer Leverkusen"

SON - “Bayer who?"

DAD - “Exactly son, but they had beaten Real Madrid 3-0 at home, and won their group that included Dinamo Kiev and Roma too."

SON - “bloody hell dad, they sound good"

DAD - “yes, I suppose you're right son."

SON - “so did they win on away goals or something?"

DAD - errrrr, no, they won both legs 3-1 each"

SON - “oh, well who next then dad?"

DAD - “Juventus"

SON - “How the f#ck did they get past them Dad?"

DAD - “Well they did, they won 2-1 at home, and cruised to a 0-0 away draw without Juve having hardly any chances."

SON - “were Juve sh#t at that time, had all their decent players gone or something?"

DAD -“well actually they still had players like Del Piero, Nedved, Ibrahimovic, Thuram, and Buffon in the side. And they won Serie A a few weeks later."

SON - “wow, they beat the Italian champions elect, which easy team did they get in the semi then?"

DAD - “Chelsea"

SON - “Chelsea? for f#cks sake, what a easy draw! They've won nothing, Everton have won more than them.!"

DAD - “well that season they won the Premiership and League Cup but the Reds didn't let them score in 180 minutes of football"

SON - “Jesus Christ, so Liverpool beat the English Champions elect too?

DAD - “yes son, they bloody well did.

SON - “so after all that I suppose all the good teams had been knocked out?"

DAD - “not quite son, AC Milan awaited them in the final"

SON - “no way Ãren't they the 2nd most successful team in the competitions history?"

DAD - “yes son they are"

SON - “so were Liverpool lucky because Milan had all their good players out with injuries?"

DAD - “no they had Shevchenko, Crespo, Maldini, Nesta, Cafu, Kaka, Stam, Dida, Gattuso, Pirlo, and Seedorf."

SON - “your avin a laff!"

DAD - “it gets worse son, Milan were cruising 3-0 up at half-time"

SON - “what happened, did they have 3 men sent off in the second half?how did Liverpool get back into the game?"

DAD - “no, Milan had no men sent off, the Reds scored 3 goals in 6 minutes!"

SON -“against the best defence in Europe?"

DAD - “yes!!!, against the best defence in Europe!"

SON - “so what happened next - extra time?"

DAD - “yes son, and Dudek made the luckiest save ever to stop a Shevchenko shot from a yard"

SON - “why was it lucky dad? did it hit him on the arse, nose, shoulder or something?"

DAD - “no son, his hand"

SON - "Well aren't goalies meant to save shots with their hands?"

DAD - “yeah but that's besides the point."

SON - “then what?"

DAD - “penalties!"

SON - “English teams are crap at penalties"

DAD - “not this f#ckin time they werent! they only missed one. And that's how Liverpool became the luckiest team to win the European Cup.

SON - “but I bet when they brought the cup home there was hardly anyone to watch as all Liverpool fans live anywhere but Liverpool you say. How many was there, 5,,000 or so?"

DAD - “1 million people lined the streets."

SON - so let's get this straight dad. Liverpool had 3 good teams in their group, they then knocked out a team who had beaten Real Madrid 3-0, they then knocked out the future Serie A champions, then knocked out the future Premiership champions, before coming back from 3-0 down to beat the 2nd most successful club in Europe. And then the whole population of Liverpool came out to welcome them home!!!!

DAD - “that about sums it up son."

SON - “dad?"

DAD - “yes son"

SON - “can I have a Liverpool shirt for my birthday next week, and can you stop calling me Duncan, I'm Stevie from now on"
Still love reading that and always will :-D

Im a United fan, and sure im jealous Liverpool won the Champions League the way they did. But not in a bad way..... what a fantastic run they had!! I remember i was jumping around my living room in total disbelief when those 3 goals went it. What a great night. English pride comes above anything else at times like that :-)
your a part time utd fan then! from london i guess
lol, part time. Yeah i dont go to see any games. How does that make me a part time fan??
DAD - “yeh I suppose your right son, but they were still lucky, it took a [COLOR="Red"]mishit[/COLOR] shot by Gerrard against Olympiakos to get through."

:w00t: :w00t: :w00t:
