November 15, 1902
Key note: “Delightful weather was in evidence this morning in marked contrast to the highly fluidical character of Saturday last, and as a natural consequence the crowds of football lovers early wended this way towards the arena at Anfield, and an excellent gate was early on apparent. Nothing, it is said, succeeds like success, and the great victory of the Reds at Newcastle last week justified the early predictions about the Liverpool team and revealed them as certainly on the top of their form. No football crowd excels Liverpool in point of fidelity, but if either of the premier organisations is going strong, lukewarm interest, in local circles, increased to boiling point, and so far the present doughty Anfielders are in high favour, and their partisans are anticipating, with very good reason, a sequence of victories in the near future.” (Liverpool Echo: November 15, 1902)
