Key note: “Liverpool had Newcastle United down to re-open the Anfield enclosure, and once more the Liverpool men were on the winning side, this time by five goals to one. On the whole Liverpool had much the better of the game, but I was not altogether pleased with their forward play. The combination was very poor, but some good individual work was done by Gordon and Dick, whilst the shooting at goal was very strong all round. Bradshaw played centre forward, but was not a success. The lad may have been over anxious, for his judgment was at fault repeatedly, and he rushed about in a headless sort of way. He threw any amount of energy into his play, but he never got his wings in unison, and was weak at taking passes. The defence was all right, and a good job it was, for the visiting forwards were fast, and showed much better form than the home lot.” (Athletic News: November 6, 1893)
