The Kop's Last Stand at the Museum of Liverpool Life remembers the famous terrace ten years after its demolition. The all standing Kop stood from 1906 to 1994 and in that time became an intrinsic part of Liverpool Football Club. Some of the earliest images on display date from 1906 while one image shows the Kop before its roof was built in 1928. Many of the terrace's famous characters such as Dr Fun are also shown.

Everton League Champions 1985 (C) Liverpool Echo

At The Conservation Centre, Everton's 80s Heroes looks back at Everton's most successful period 20 years ago when Howard Kendall was in charge. During that period Everton won the FA Cup in 1984, played in the historic all Merseyside Milk Cup final and in 1985 won the League Championship, European Cup Winners Cup and the Charity Shield. The exhibition covers seasons 1984-7 with one picture showing BBC Radio Merseyside presenter Billy Butler leading the chanting in Rotterdam city square, prior to the European Cup Winners Cup Final victory against Rapid Vienna.
