- European Cup night, May 1984

My view of the action from the 2005 Final:

Living in Istanbul, I was lucky enough to go to the 2005 Champion’s League Final. In a way I'm disappointed that this year's final will be between the same two teams, as it's bound to, in some way, affect my memories of what happened on that famous night.

Here's your chance to relive the night in 1984 when Liverpool won their fourth European Cup. Peel can barely keep it together, and I think it was a good job that he had rhythm pal Jensen in the studio with him.

There's some creative editing by whoever originally recorded this tape, especially towards the end, lots of pressing of the pause button. I've transcribed the tracks as best I can, but please let me know if there are any glaring inaccuracies.
