- Gerard Houllier's first game at Anfield. He went on the Kop with Patrice Bergues: "I suppose going to the game with Patrice that day was a touch of destiny. Patrice had come over to spend a few days with me because I was here on my own, and so we decided to and see Liverpool play Dundalk. What impressed me first of all was the atmosphere inside the stadium. We were on the Kop, and it was fantastic to see the unconditioned support of the fans. I was also impressed by the energy which was shown in the game, and the stamina of the players. I think 15 minutes before the end of the match the score was 8-0 and still Liverpool went looking for goals. In fact the score at half-time was 5-0. In France, if you are 5-0 up at half-time the game is over in the sense that you don't bother trying to increase your score. It's not like that in England."
