IT'S the biggest mystery in sports; just what did really happen in the dressing room in Istanbul on May 25 2005 to spark the greatest comeback in football history. Three goals down and seemingly set for further embarrassment, Liverpool Football Club were being humiliated on the game's biggest stage. The club's first European Cup final in 20 years looked destined to be ending in heartache as AC Milan were allowed to run away with a 3-0 advantage. But then somehow, deep in the bowels of the Ataturk Stadium, Liverpool were inspired into fighting back to three-all and then eventually winning a dramatic penalty shoot-out. Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.In the years that have followed, tales of what really happened during that half time interval have grown into terrace fairytales. But now, courtesy of the imagination of acclaimed Liverpool writer Dave Kirby at least, the truth can be told. And the truth is hilarious. Naturally, as we've come to expect from the Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels, Lost Soul and Council Depot Blues scribe his latest venture is a rollercoaster ride of sharp Scouse wit. Fifteen Minutes That Shook The World transforms Kirby's acclaimed theatre writing style effortlessly on to the big screen as we are taken back in time to the night Liverpool brought Old Big Ears home for good.
