Liverpool 5 – 4 Alavés


As finals go, this one has it all. Almost. A penalty, an own goal winner, a sending off and nine goals in total. What more could you possibly need?! Well, here’s the thing. At this point in time, we all had to endure Sepp Blatter and his shitty ideas of how to fix things that weren’t broken, so this one was decided by a Golden (own) Goal. Reds fans aside, who wouldn’t have wanted to have seen 10-man Alavés equalise in the 125th minute to force a penalty shoot out? Even so, a cup final for the ages.
