Liverpool went offside 30 times

October 26, 1910
Liverpool are at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and despite their defeat at Newcastle I do not anticipate any great alteration in the side. It is even said that Liverpool played one of their best games of the season at Newcastle, but the latter were at the top of their form, and we all know what that means.

The unsportsmanlike tactics of McCracken, however, spoiled the Liver’s chances altogether. I am told that Parkinson was being pulled up almost every time he got the ball, and there must have been something like 30 free kicks against Liverpool for offside offences.

Evidently McCracken and Co were not taking any risks, and they made doubly sure of victory. The “Reds” were not disgraced by any means. The ‘Spurs are attractive visitors, and they are pretty certain to provide strong opposition. The Reds ought to gain their second home victory, however.
