1974 FA Cup Final

1974 FA Cup Final
Event FA Cup 1973–74
Date 4 May 1974
Venue Wembley Stadium, London

The 1974 FA Cup Final was contested by Liverpool and Newcastle United at Wembley. In a one-sided match Liverpool won 3–0, with goals from Kevin Keegan (2) and Steve Heighway. BBC commentator David Coleman said that Newcastle's defence had been "undressed" by Liverpool. Liverpool left back Alec Lindsay had a goal disallowed, although replays later showed the offside pass that supplied Lindsay's 'goal' came from a Newcastle defender, thus meaning the goal should have stood.

It was manager Bill Shankly's last game in charge of Liverpool, as he retired during the 1974 close season and was succeeded by coach Bob Paisley – though Shankly led them out for the Charity Shield match at the start of the next season.
