About Arthur Metcalf:
“Metcalf was never a showy player, and he played up better on soft going than when the ball bounced lively. Tom Watson was a great believer in Metcalf – he had almost an exalted view of his worth – and without doubt he it was that got and kept Metcalf from Newcastle to Liverpool. Metcalf’s work was always class, and in drifting a pass he was excellent.” (Liverpool Echo: June 25, 1919)
