The myth is dead! Long live the King!
For years, this was as close as football fans got to “seeing” that goal. (Click here.)
For almost a quarter of a century football fans have had to be content with whispers and rumours; the moment that none of the 41,291 Anfield spectators privileged enough to witness it that night will ever forget.
Jan Molby’s strike for Liverpool against Manchester United in their 2-1 Milk Cup win in November 1985 is widely regarded as the best goal never seen. Scored during the infamous TV blackout of 1985/86, the goal has taken on near-mythical status as only those present have ever been able to talk about how Rambo won the ball with a crunching tackle on Norman Whiteside, before taking on the entire United defence before unleashing a howitzer into the net under the watchful eye of the Kop.
The only footage of the game was recorded by a single police surveillance camera in the Anfield gantry. After the match, Jan was generously given the only copy of the game by defeated United manager Ron Atkinson, and finally the Kop legend has given LFC TV the footage for public release.
For the first time ever Jan Molby’s wonder-goal against Manchester United can finally be watched by all.
