Newcastle United v Liverpool 0-0 (League match: November 7, 1914)


November 7, 1914
Key note: “That Liverpool, who the previous Saturday had scored seven goals against Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United, whose improvement in attack has been one of the features of the season so far, should have failed to muster even a goal between them at St. James’ Park on Saturday, must have proved very disappointing to the crowd of 24,000 spectators. The goalless state of affairs, it must be confessed, was not by any means due to super-excellence in the respective defence. The whole essence of the match was that the forward lines failed with reasonable opportunities, and neither Lawrence nor Campbell had anything like a difficult shot to field.” (Newcastle Journal: November 9, 1914)
