First game I can remember seeing live was Liverpool v Ipswich in 1976. Great game that ended 3-3 . Keegan (2) and Case the scorers.

Ray Kennedy scored the only goal. I stood on the Anny Road Terracing, on a box, with my dad (where he used to go as a season ticket holder in the 60’s). pic.twitter.com/L2pjObKlLc
