February 1991 turned out to be quite a momentous month: The first Gulf War ended; 10 Downing Street was attacked by the IRA; and in English football, ‘King’ Kenny Dalglish shocked everybody by unexpectedly resigning as manager of Liverpool. It was a pivotal moment in the season and came in the wake of one of the greatest FA Cup ties and Merseyside derbies ever seen. Everton came back four times in a helter-skelter, end-to-end classic forcing fierce local rivals Liverpool into a second 5th round replay. Joining host Mark to discuss that game, the background to it, and the fallout of Dalglish’s sudden departure from Anfield are former Everton and Scotland winger Pat Nevin, who played in that match; Gavin Buckland – Evertonian and regular on Radio Merseyside and the Liverpool Echo’s Royal Blue podcast – and writer, journalist and lifelong Red, Tony Evans – former football editor at The Times.
