FA Cup final 1996 – Liverpool FC’s Cream Suits

Watching tonight’s FA Cup 4th round fixture between AFC Wimbledon v Liverpool for which Liverpool won 2-1 thanks to two Steven Gerrard goals. I was trawling around the BBC Website for match reports even though I watched the match and already knew that there were no surprises that Steven Gerrard was awarded man of the match.

Steven Gerrard, an absolute legend of a footballer who recently announced he’s leaving Liverpool at end of 2014-15 season for pastures new said to be MLS in the US which is yet to be confirmed. Seems like yesterday when Gerrard made his debut as a youngster coming on as a substitute back in 1998.

I stumbled on the BBC website this report about the Armani cream suits the Liverpool players wore to the 1996 FA Cup fixture.

The 1996 FA cup final I remember watching in a pub in Oxford with housemates and their friends which resulted in a lot of beer being drunk that day lol. This very dire match was settled by an Eric Cantana goal in the 85th minute to give Manchester United a 1-0 victory. As a Liverpool fan that was a depressing result which went along with a depressing match and Liverpool had to wear a change strip for the fixture which was green & white which definitely didn’t help matters – yuk!

The press afterwards paid more attention to the fashion faux pax by the Liverpool players where they were nicknamed “The Spice Boys” than the actual match.

Here is the BBC report where the cream suits went down as one of the FA Cup’s 50 Greatest Moments. See it here and watch the video on the BBC website – http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/30579372

It’s funny now looking back but definitely not on that weekend back in the golden era of 1996:)
