Charlton v Liverpool-13th Feb 1999

An article in todays Daily Mail.

This week in 1999 Charlton Athletic, managed by Alan Curbishley, defeated Liverpool, managed by Gerard Houllier, 1-0 at The Valley.

It was a much-needed result for Charlton, who were second- bottom of the Premier League at kick-off, and a bad one for Liverpool. They had finished third the previous season and were about to slump to seventh.

But it was an even more important — and worse — result for a Far East betting syndicate on the brink of another massive payday. They had planned to make their money by short-circuiting The Valley’s floodlights in the second half.

  • It's shame it never happened during the Dutchelet reign.  He might of blew himself up trying to sabotage a floodlight pylon!
