Liverpool have won the FA Cup a total of 8 times....

Liverpool's first victory in the competition came in the sixties.  Bill Shankly was the manager, as the Reds defeated Leeds United 2 - 1 after extra time.

Liverpool's had to wait nearly 10 years to win another FA Cup, but in 1974 they defeated Newcastle United 3 - 0 at Wembley to lift the trophy for the second time.  Shankly was once again Liverpool manager.

The 1986 FA Cup triumph was especially pleasing for Reds fans, as Everton were the opposition.  Liverpool won 3 - 1, in front of 98,000 fans.

Everton were once again the opponents in the 1989 Final, with Liverpool triumphing 3 - 2 after extra time.  The final was played just 5 weeks after the Hillsborough Disaster.

Graeme Souness led Liverpool to FA Cup in 1992 (his only piece of silverware as Reds manager), with a 2 - 0 victory over Sunderland.  Steve McManaman was voted 'man of the match'.

2001 was a remarkable season for Liverpool and manager Gerard Houllier, as the Reds won a Cup Treble.  Michael Owen scored two late goals for Liverpool in the FA Cup Final, as Liverpool came from behind to beat Arsenal 2 - 1.

2006 will be remembered as the Steven Gerrard Final, after the Reds Captain famously equalised with a 30 yeard effort in the final few minutes, to take the game into extra time.  Liverpool eventually won 3 - 1 on penalties.

Liverpool's most recent FA Cup victory was also won on penalties, this time against Chelsea.  After neither side could score during normal time or extra time, the Reds eventually won 6 - 5, with Kostas Tsimikas hitting the winning penalty.
