The brainchild of TalkSPORT presenter Paul Hawksbee, '90 Minutes' magazine launched in October of 1990 and managed a glorious seven-year run before folding.

While we're certain the publication featured it's fair share of memorable articles and such like, nothing that ever went to print is likely to provide a more lasting impression than the special set of football playing cards that 90 Minutes put their name to in 1993/94(ish).

Steven Gerrard looking forward to playing in his final Liverpool-Everton derby

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will run out at Goodison Park for his final Premier League Merseyside derby with a clear message to his Everton detractors: "Bring it on."

Gerrard has been the target of abuse from the blue half of the city from almost the moment he made his debut in 1999.

He even "had some stick" from an Everton supporter earlier this week but confessed he enjoyed the banter with Toffees fans even if dealing with terrace chants and the odd barbed comment will be an issue he leaves behind for his team-mates when he moves to Major League Soccer.

For the second time in four years, Liverpool and Everton had both made it to the FA Cup final, but with tragedy at Hillsborough just five weeks in the past there were serious doubts as to whether the game should go ahead. The fans, though, made it clear to the club they wanted to go. And so Liverpool went, combining with their local rivals to put on one of the most dramatic FA Cup finals in history.

If Luton Town can somehow manage to beat Nottingham Forest next Tuesday night and advance to the next round of the FA Cup to square off against Liverpool, it may prevent the side from slipping further into financial woe.

With the impending (and ridiculous) debacle concerning the future of Rafael Benitez set to play out in the near future, a potential aftershock to ponder is that his departure could gut our side, if not first psychologically, eventually physically. The possibility of those who followed Rafa from abroad requesting a transfer or, in the case of Javier Mascherano, refusing to sign a permanent, is highly likely.
