A classic FA Cup tie, a night game played in the heady Anfield atmosphere. This is the Roy Evans era (pre-job share with Houlier) where Liverpool were renowned for their cavalier approach to games (this is the era of the back to back classic 4 v 3 encounters with Newcastle, the first of which has been voted best match in the history of the Premier League). With Fowler at his goal scoring peak alongside the mercurial and unpredictable Collymore; Steve McManaman providing excitement, speed and skill; John Barnes undergoing something of a Rennaissance period in his career; FA Cup legend Ian Rush on the bench and "Calamity" James in goal - this was a Liverpool side who played stylish football harking back to a previous era and was renowned for both scoring AND conceding goals.
They were up against a Leeds United who had been struggling somewhat with Howard Wilkinson at the helm. He had built his team around a strong defence and was heavily reliant on the amazing Tony Yeboah to conjure up spectacular goals out of nowhere. The Leeds game plan was typically to frustrate opponents and then hit them on the break. With the creative genius of a young Gary MacAllister pulling the midfeld strings (who would, in years to come, have a hugely influential role at Liverpool), Leeds were always dangerous, especially in a cup tie.
Who would make it through to the semi-final - the irresistable force or the immovable object?
This is a little grainy having been recorded to VHS from TV then transferred to digital but it doesnt detract one iota from the quality football on display.
