To mark 50 years since Bill Shankly's arrival at Anfield, we spoke to our all-time leading scorer in the league, Roger Hunt, about his finest game under the great Scot's regime.
I regard it as a privilege to have played under Bill Shankly and to have been part of a transformation that has made Liverpool Football Club the institution it is today.
There were so many great days and fantastic games in the years that followed his appointment; it is difficult to narrow it down to just one game.
But if I have to choose a standout moment in my Reds career, then I don't think I could go wrong by choosing the 1965 FA Cup final.
I played, I scored and we won the first FA Cup in Liverpool's history - but that isn't the only reason why it meant so much to me.
My early memories of the FA Cup stem from a famous final that was played in 1953. I grew up as a Bolton fan and remember huddling in front of the television and watching the all-Lancashire encounter against Blackpool with all my family at home.
The Trotters ended up losing a classic by a 4-3 scoreline in a game that is still regarded as the 'Matthews final' today.
At the time it was obviously my ambition to become a professional footballer and if I could achieve that, the ultimate aim would be to win the FA Cup - so you can understand how such an occasion would leave a lasting impression on me.
Of course, Liverpool had never won it back then and had suffered defeats in their previous appearances in the final.
So when I became part of the first Reds team to win it in 1965, it was a massive achievement; not just personally, but for the team and the city.
Prior to the match, Leeds had finished second in the league and were full of confidence ahead of the biggest showpiece occasion of the season against us - all this a year after promotion.
You've no doubt heard all the stories about Don Revie's men, but they weren't just tough, they were a superb side too.
I don't think it was the greatest of spectacles that day and it probably wouldn't go down as one of the most entertaining finals, but it was a keenly contested one between two very good teams.
Everyone who knows anything about Liverpool's history will have seen how Ian St John got the winner from Ian Callaghan's cross. I can still see him rising to head that home now. It's a vivid memory.
There weren't many chances but I remember that we were the side doing most of the attacking. We worked hard throughout the 90 minutes and continued that in extra-time, when all the goals arrived.
I put us ahead three minutes after the restart and it was a incredible feeling to see that ball hit the net.
Of course, two minutes later all that hard work was undone as Billy Bremner levelled for Leeds.
Thankfully, Ian restored our lead and we held on through to that final whistle - what a moment that was!
After the game Shanks congratulated us and told us that we could be proud to be the first side to win the FA Cup for Liverpool Football Club.
There were no huge celebrations on our part though. We had a European Cup semi-final with Inter Milan to look forward to straight after it, so it wasn't long before we were back in training and focused on that game.
That's how it was under Shanks. It was always about looking forward and trying to achieve more success.
When I realised it was 50 years since my Liverpool debut I became aware that it wouldn't be long until it was half a century since Shankly arrived.
I think we (the players) were very lucky that he arrived at Liverpool when he did.
He just changed everything about the club. He altered the training and we started to play 3-A-side and 5-A-side games. It was like being in a match situation but it was all done at speed. We did a lot of work with the ball.
What struck me at the time was that he didn't bring any staff with him.
Reuben Bennett, Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan - they were already there. What a team they would go on to forge.
Shanks had a real presence about him and after taking a look at the squad, he convinced the club to spend money on new players and that was key.
His enthusiasm and dedication saw him go on to completely transform Liverpool.
It's often been said, but he was the one who laid the foundations for the success the club has achieved. His philosophy was that football is a simple game. Just play the ball to the nearest red shirt. He built his team around that belief.
He also bought players who he knew would give 100 per cent in every game.
For me, the two that made such a difference were Ian St John and Ron Yeats. They played a huge part in the Second Division side that got promotion. That was the start of it all. They were fantastic.
There are so many great memories of Shanks. I think my defining one, is when we brought the FA Cup back to Liverpool in 1965. He stood at the Town Hall and addressed the huge crowd that had come out in force. There were about 250,000 people and it was fantastic.
He was a fine man and a fantastic manager. For me, he ranks alongside the greatest managers of all-time.
