  Liverpool’s decision to wear cream Armani suits for the 1996 FA Cup Final, as much as their subsequent defeat to Manchester United, drew stinging criticism.

  The incident is still dragged up as the prime example of the ‘Spice Boy’ mentality which surrounded Anfield in the mid-1990s and made them nearly-men.

  Goalkeeper David James was responsible for the suits and Dominic Matteo admitted 'Never has so much damage been done to a team’s reputation.'

  In his autobiography 'My Defence' he (Jason McAteer) wrote: 'All sorts were said about us, from being too big for our boots to a team that was more concerned with swanning round like playboys than playing football.

  'None of it was true, as anyone who had been in our dressing room at Wembley would have known. The scene was one of total devastation.

  But, in terms of Liverpool’s reputation, the damage was done. The Spice Boys had been born.'
