Quick note: “Liverpool did not cover themselves with glory on Saturday in the English Cup tie encounter with Northwich Victoria. The reputation they had built up by their victory over Aston Villa was ruthlessly brought down. Whatever complaint there was about the ground, and it was wretched enough, Liverpool undoubtedly had the advantage as they were a much heavier team, and, therefore on a heavy-going ground ought to have made a better show.”
