September 26, 1914
Key note: “The heavy defeat of Liverpool at the Hawthorns on Saturday was due in large measure to the play of the home forwards. They displayed rare dash and determination, and harassed the Liverpool backs to such an extent that the latter were quite unable to resist with any degree of success the attacks that were made. Liverpool were a badly beaten team, and their weakness was apparent from the very commencement of the game. Their forwards did not show the combination one expected to see, and their backs seemed to have little confidence.” (Birmingham Daily Post: September 28, 1914)
