Saturday 1 October 1988

I wanted to go to the football today, Liverpool versus Newcastle United. More of which later.

However, I had arranged with my parents for them to bring the rest of my stuff, so I was busy receiving them instead. I didn’t note it in my diary, but I am sure that I recall my Mum making a comment that she was a bit upset that they had come all this way to see me and all I had done was make it blindingly obvious that I would rather that they hadn’t… Sorry Mum.

Anyway, a few miles away in L4, Mirandinha’s penalty at the Kop end settled things in the Geordies’ favour after Gary Gillespie and John Hendrie had traded first half goals.
