Replay ’86

Marina Dalglish Appeal Replay '86Full details of Monday's 1986 FA Cup Final rematch, in aid of the Marina Dalglish Appeal, are here. It should be a cracking day out if you are either a Liverpool or Everton fan and can get tickets. Listening to Alan Hansen, who will be running out on Monday with the rest of the team of '86, it seems as if some cheeky training has been going on by members of both teams and the game is likely to be played in a spirit of real competition and rivalry. In the FA Cup Final that year, with Liverpool chasing the league and cup double, a goal from Gary Lineker seperated the sides at half time. In the second half, Ian Rush equalised, Craig Johnson added a second and Rush made it 3 just 6 minutes from the end after great work by Jan Molby (always one of my favourite players) and Ronnie Whelan. According to Hansen, both Liverpool and Everton players have been working on their fitness and he expects the tackles to go flying in. As Whelan commented about last year's Liverpool Legends vs Celebrities game in aid of the victims of the Asian Tsunami, he got busy about the midfield in that game "at least twice", so maybe there'll be more energy this time round!
