Key note: “The 28,000 people who went to Bramall Lane on Saturday found little to arouse their enthusiasm. Doubtless both Sheffield United and Liverpool are capable of better displays, and will give them as the season advances. On the present occasion the teams were well matches in a game of which a division of points was a fair result. There was a thrill when Liverpool scored two minutes from the start, and when Sheffield made the score level a quarter of an hour later, but very few afterwards.” (Athletic News: August 29, 1927)
