Liverpool v Wolves 3-3 (League match: December 1, 1894)


December 1, 1894
Key note: “Drawn games are well enough in their way, as one point is better than none, but there are times when even this consolation is not complete, and this was the case with Liverpool on Saturday. The champion drawists expected more, or at least their supporters did, and when you come to look at it the result no doubt is a bit disappointing. The ‘Wolves,’ for they were at Anfield, have not had a brilliant season, but have had the best of the deal with Liverpool, for on September 20, when the season was young, they managed to scrape two points out of their opponents. Whether they were deserved or not I cannot say as I was not there, but taking all in all they were lucky to get a point out of Saturday’s match, and on the other hand Liverpool were fortunate in obtaining a point. That’s a bit paradoxical, but is correct.” (Athletic News: December 3, 1894)
