  • - This is still Martyn Tyler's favourite match he has commentated on at SKY and he remembers vividly the Kop going wild at Collymore's winner: "I get goosebumps every time I hear it because it was such a special time. Poor Kevin Keegan slumped over the advertising hoardings at the end is one of the iconic shots of the game, perhaps the iconic shot.Whatever makes us so addicted to football it was the drug.'I think if you take all the elements of why we all love football they all happened in this particular game.''
