Key note: “Although Liverpool opened well against a stiff breeze and led at the interval by a goal, they were extremely fortunate in sharing the points at the close. Sheffield United players were more constructive and worked together all the time. Their fine positional play and complete understanding of each other made Liverpool at times appear to be a very ordinary side. But they attempted to make position so secure that shots levelled at Scott were few; still these were of the teasing order.” (Athletic News: May 3, 1926)
