UEFA Super Cup- Part Five (Liverpool vs. SV Hamburg, 1977)

The fifth edition of the UEFA Super Cup took place in the Fall of 1977, between the winner of the Champions Cup, Liverpool and the winners of the Cup Winners Cup, SV Hamburg.

The English side Liverpool had won their very first Champions Cup after defeating West German side Borussia Monchengladbach (3-1) at Rome on May 25th, 1977.
They were continuing a dynasty at the top level following UEFA Cup wins in 1973 and 1976.
After the win, Liverpool’s star Kevin Keegan had joined their opponents for this Super Cup, SV Hamburg.
To replace the departing Keegan, Liverpool had enrolled, the Scottish Kenny Dalglish from Celtic Glasgow. The rest of this solid squad had remained intact.
The English contingent of Clemence, Neal, Smith, Thompson, Kennedy, Case, McDermott were complemented with the likes of the Irishman Heighway and the Welshmen Jones and Toshack.

The West German side SV Hamburg were an ambitious side that were a few years away from making an even bigger impact on the domestic and European Stage.
They had won the Cup Winners Cup on May 11th, 1977 at Amsterdam by defeating the defending Champions Anderlecht (2-0).
The side contained new and future Internationals such as Kaltz, Magath, and Volkert. They had not only signed Keegan in the off-season but also Yugoslavian International defender Buljan.
They had replaced their Cup Winners Cup winning Manager Klotzer with Rudi Guttendorf in the summer. However, poor results had led to his sacking and Ozcan Arkoc now managed the side.
In fact both sides were struggling in their respective Leagues prior to this match and it was difficult to designate a clear favorite before these encounters.
The sides had met just a few months prior in a summer pre-season friendly as part of the Keegan transfer (3-2 Hamburg win), but not much could be read from inconsequential encounters such as that one.

The first leg was played on November 22nd, 1977 at Hamburg’s Volksparkstadion.
The hosts Hamburg were missing a number of key players most notably Georg Volkert and Peter Nogly.
Keegan had declared that they would make the difference in Hamburg to have an easier time at Liverpool.
Snow (on the days leading up to the match) had made the field somewhat slippery.
Liverpool started the match in a better form but slowly Hamburg got into the rhythm.
They took the lead in the first half from a Ferdinand Keller volley in the 29th minute.
A few minutes later, Liverpool defender Joe Jones was injured and he would be replaced with Tommy Smith.
Liverpool sensing Hamburg’s vulnerabilities started to press harder in the second half for an equalizer.
In the 58th minute, Paisley replaced Jimmy Case with David Johnson. Dalglish was also moved further up and now Liverpool had four strikers.
The pressure paid off when in the 65th minute, David Fairclough headed in the equalizer.
The match (ended in a (1-1) tie) had been largely unimpressive and many observers had likened it to a friendly match.
Liverpool Manager Bob Paisley stated, “We had the impression that neither side wanted to win the Super Cup”.
Keegan went further, he said, “we (SV Hamburg) were pathetic. The last two weeks we have played well, bit tonight we were terrible.”

The Second Leg took place at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium on December 6th, 1977.
Liverpool had the edge as the home team along with the away goal. They made a few modifications from the first leg. Tommy Smith started in defense in place of the injured Joey Jones. Terry McDermott would also replace Ian Callaghan in the squad.
For Hamburg, Jurgen Stars, Buljan, Eigl, Memering and Steffenhagen were out and replaced in the lineup by Kargus, Nogly, Bertl, Hidien and Georg Volkert.
Keegan had been apprehensive about his reception back at Liverpool, but fans greeted him well.
Phil Thompson gave Liverpool the lead in the 21st minute and from then on it was one-way traffic with Hamburg unable to match Liverpool’s dominance at home.
Terry McDermott struck a memorable hat trick by scoring in the 40th, 56th and 57th minutes.
At the (0-2) score, the Liverpool fans started chanting “Keegan! Keegan! What’s the score?”
In the second half the onslaught continued with Liverpool scoring four more goals.
After McDermott’s double strike in the 56th and 57th minutes, Hamburg made a double substitution in the 69th minutes o limit the damage.
Kurt Eigl and Arno Steffenhagen went on for Keller and Zaczyk.
It was to no avail as Liverpool scored twice more in the closing stages through a Fairclough header and a Dalglish strike. Liverpool comfortably won this Super Cup (7-1) on aggregate.
It had been a brutal homecoming for Keegan. He would say  “I was disappointed from our point of view, because we were diabolical”. He also praised his former squad.
Liverpool would go on and win their second successive Champions Cup a few months later.
