November 14, 1936
Key note: “With the dreary weather of the morning pushed out of the way by the sunshine, the conditions at Anfield were quite good, although the ground was naturally on the soft side. Great interest was shown in the little drum-major who, standing on a platform in front of the stands, gave a demonstration of sword swinging. It had been rousing if not scientific football. Great tribute must be paid to Liverpool for the way they fought back against their two goals’ deficit and thereby saving their home record.” (Liverpool Echo: November 14, 1936)
