As Bill Shankly's rebuilt side of the 1970's flourished in the 1972-73 Season, the 1973074 campaign didn't quite live up to expectation, with the FA Cup becoming the only realistic chance of adding silverware to the trophies won the previous year. But facing Newcastle, they played a team that had never lost a Wembley final, and the stage was set for a keenly-awaited showdown.
With eight of Liverpool's starting line-up remaining from the side that suffered heart-ache in the extra-time defeat of the 1971 final, Bill Shankly's team were determined to make amends, and with the addition of Kevin Keegan, they started as favourites to lift the Cup.
After a first half of few chances, Liverpool really turned on the style in the second half with a master-class display of total football. Alec Lindsay became the scorer of perhaps the best FA Cup goal that never was, before Kevin Keegan opened the scoring, Steve Heighway added number two and then Kevin Keegan scored his second of the game after a move of flowing football with only minutes remaining.
As the triumphant Bill Shankly headed for the Wembley tunnel with a red flag held above his head, the Liverpool fans rightly saluted their great manager. But weeks later he would stun the world of football by announcing his retirement, after clinching his final piece of silverware.
Featuring post-match interviews with the players and Bill Shankly, this is a piece of history that must be owned.
