1) Italian FA issue. 132 pages.



2) Unofficial issue. 16 pages.


1) Produced by the Italian FA for the media and was available in the VIP area of the stadium. It has been confirmed to us by a Liverpool supporter who attended the match that it was also on general sale outside the stadium. He purchased his copy at the match. Another supporter has informed us he purchased his copy inside the stadium for around three pounds. The Liverpool Daily Post also made reference to it in a supplement they produced the day after the match - the final paragraph is the relevant one. Click on the arrow to read the article.



2) Produced by the Manchester programme shop, a UK based dealer. It has been confirmed to us by a Liverpool supporter who attended the match that this issue was on sale in Rome on the day of the match. There would appear to be a number of reproductions of this programme in circulation. One reproduction we have seen is easily identified when compared to the original. The paper is thicker and the pink background used on most pages is much brighter. It is also slightly smaller than the original, so there is less of a margin beneath the final text. On the front cover, this is noticeable beneath the line 'Wednesday 25th May...! Other reproductions may be different. Click on the arrow to view the front cover.

Autographs collected in the departure lounge of Speke Airport on the day Liverpool flew out for the final by a 7 year old supporter whose dad was the Immigration Officer on duty that day and had exclusive access to the departure lounge when the team was waiting to board their plane. The first autograph was Kevin Keegan's who provided a personalised signature. All the starting eleven signed, plus two substitutes - David Johnson and David Fairclough - and three players who were injured but travelled with the squad, John Toshack, Phil Thompson and Brian Kettle. Ian Callaghan and Brian Kettle signed twice. The final signature belongs to the manager, Bob Paisley, which was obtained as he passed through passport control.

(Feb 24, 2015) Tom Gibney said:
What a fantastic collection/selection of memorabilia from that most famous occasion in '77', I was 13 at the time in Roma at the game with my cousin an avid Leeds supporter, it seems like yesterday, and the amazing 5 day coach journey you couldn't make up the events that took place, incredible, film material, never to be forgotten.
