GARETH Roberts winds back the clock 40 years to this day in 1977 – Liverpool’s first glorious European Cup victory in Rome.

First, Dave Kirby recalls the journey to Rome for the final, a gruelling return on a rickety train across Europe, while John Mackin remembers the mood in Liverpool, before and after the match.

Broadcaster and journalist John Keith then joins us to talk about the trip over with the players, the game itself and what it all meant to Bob Paisley and Liverpool – the team, the club, the city and the fans.
