I cant believe two decades have passed since that game. I remember watching the game on teletext and my mam sending me to bed with it tied at 3-3. Dad came home from the pub and said i could watch the highlights but didn't know if i would want to. Have the game on VHS aswell. Really showing my age now tho.

Never forget that game.

My dad taped it for me (on VHS as well Brownie) and I watched it the next night I think (Was it played on a Wednesday)

Anyway my abiding memory of it is the commentator screaming "Cotteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 3- threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeee"

I remember crying when Barnes had scored that absolute cracker and my dad kept saying, awww ya never know what happens in football. All the while knowing exactly what had happened. The wanker.

The replay was a terrible game as well I remember other than for Waggy's goal.
Stealth ya flaming galargh!!!

I bought a VHS tape of that called "Game Of The Decade" presented by Nosferatu himself, Jim Rosenthal.  Watched it so many times the tape wore out and became unwatchable.

Just a brilliant, dramatic game of football.

Bloody hell, is it that long ago!

Privileged to have been there :)  Fantastic game, but as mgp says, the replay was a bit of a damp squib.

Memories, eh...

I was 15 at the time and my Dad took me to his local to watch it as it was on sky and with 2 minutes to go he went to get the car thinking the game was over. Had to make him go back and park up and watch the extra time. :-)

The 4-4 was actually a replay as well because the 1st game was 0-0 at goodison and we should have won that as we had a stonewall shout for a penalty. Grobelaar brought someone down in the box (might have been sheedy)

we only got to play the 2nd replay at goodison as we won the toss.

True. I nearly mentioned that :)

Definitely robbed (not for the first time) :(

Quote, from a Colin Harkness:

This was indeed a terrific match, and i also had the good fortune to be there. The game itself shouldn't really need to have been played really, as it was a replay from a 0-0 draw at Anfield, where the referee, Neil Midgely i think- denied Everton a blatant penalty when Gary Ablett kicked Pat Nevin into orbit at the Anfield Road End. Midgely was the Referee for the 4-4 replay, and as he came out to warm up before the game, an Evertonian ran on the pitch and put a Liverpool scarf around his neck. He took it in good humour, as well he should, for he admitted upon seeing replays of the incident he had been wrong. But his mistake led to an all time classic Derby match. A magnificent game, and a credit to Merseyside.

When you watch that back you can see how much the game has improved, the defending for most of those goals was shocking.

First game was at Anfield, then the 4-4 at Goodison and then a 1-0 at Everton scored by Dave Watson.

I was present at the two Goodison matches, suffice to say it was nail biting stuff.
