The Greatest Game Ever Played (Liverpol 4-3 Newcastle 3 April 1996 )

These are the longest highlights I’ve been capable to locate of this classic, show-stopping match. Two great sides set on an unforgettable performance of attacking football in this unforgettable match. Commentary by Martin Tyler and Andy Gray, including the renowned “Collymore closing in!!!”.

    football just isnt the same anymore without andy gray. i think sky made a huge mistake in sacking him… i think he is irreplaceable as a commentator on football… shame some football top man had to decide to let a woman linesman,,, they might be as good or better than men but at the end of the day its a mans game…

    @darkhouse1906 of course you wouldn’t get tired, this match is why Man United won the Premier League again that year, which Man United fan wouldn’t be happy with the way this match turned out? By the way, Man United still sucks

    @andyn6990 Your a Man Utd fan? I dont think so pal, Eric Cantona is was about a hundred times better,

  12. MUFC127 Says:

    @JamesPCroad The two top teams of the day were Man Utd and Newcastle United.

  13. MUFC127 Says:

    @andyalin Get used to it cunt.

  14. 132000Volts Says:

    @kopkingslfc Yet Newcastle were a better attacking team consistently. The title should have been theirs

  15. Paladin24987 Says:

    easily the best match i have seen ever… that + the 4 – 4 arsenal/’pool arshavin 1 and the 3 – 3 between utd/’pool in 1994.

    Even such little time ago, there seemed to be more ‘characters’ in the game…

    I can say this as a NUFC fan this was the best Premier league game ever, although at the time it was a bitter pill to swallow.

    This is the perfect example of how football should be played end to end, on the floor, no diving or dirty tactics – just 2 top teams of the day playing to win.

    They should have played this as or presentation to FIFA for hosting the world cup with a statment saying ‘its our game, we invented it and this is how it is supposed to be played, so lets bring it home!’

    Im a man u supporter but even i admit robbie fowler is the best striker of my time he was amazing!

  22. andyn6990 Says:

    Amazing game , this and the semi final replay between man u and arsenal are my fav games ever u dont get games like this now the 90s were the best full of passion and atmosphere , now its all bout money its a shame 🙁 but im glad i was a teen in this era was amazing!

  23. ches017 Says:

    I remember watching this match, and I’ll never forget the sight of a crestfallen Kevin Keegan leaning on the banner after Collymore’s goal. Priceless!

  24. vicavox Says:

    Martin Tyler and Andy Gray…could listen to these two commentate all day long. They make great games like this even more fantastic.
