We continue our summer series of historical video compilations this afternoon with another of the giants of English football, Liverpool FC. Liverpool started the 1962/63 back in the First Division after eight years away, during which they finished in third place in he Second Division four times and fourth place twice – back in the days when promotion and relegation were limited to just two clubs each – before winning the Second Division title in 1962. Our first match is the first Merseyside derby after their return to the First Division against Everton – and yes, those kits with black and white pictures are a little confusing! Liverpool are in the red shirts. Our second match skips forward to the end of the decade, and extended – very extended – highlights of a trip to Molineux to play Wolverhampton Wanderers in March of 1968.
Next it’s into the 1970s, and the return of the Football League championship to Anfield for the first time in seven years in 1973, our match from that season being a home match against Ipswich Town. Seasoned Liverpool supporters will need no reminding of our next match – it’s the 1977 European Cup final against Borussia Moenchengladbach in Rome, which ended in the first of the clubs five wins in that competition. We then skip forward to the 1980s and two matches from the First Division, an away match on a frozen pitch against the then defending European champions, Aston Villa. Finally, we have a match from Plough Lane against Wimbledon from 1986.
