Liverpool overcame Manchester City to reach the Carling Cup Final their first final at Wembley since the 1996 FA Cup Final and the club have already chosen what suit they will be wearing.
The Reds last played at the home of English football in 1996 when they took on mortal enemies Manchester United in the 1996 FA Cup final.
In one of the drabbest FA Cup finals ever, the occasion was remembered mainly for them ludicrously extravagant white Armani suits which Liverpool wore prior to kick-off.
It was a real nation eyebrow-raiser, with football fans the world over not knowing whether to laugh or cry as the Merseyside club firmly established themselves as the club of pin-ups and unnecessary glamour; better put, the ‘spice boys’.
Having now returned to the New Wembley some 16 years later to face Cardiff City in the Carling Cup final, rumours are currently circulating that boss Kenny Dalglish is ready to wheel out the white Armani suits again!
Quit laughing at the back there…
