Key note: “A draw at Nottingham or any other city is satisfactory, yet one could not deny that Liverpool owed too much to too few in getting their half-share on this occasion. Broadley speaking, the defence plus Liddell did all the donkey work, and too often this has been the case in matches which might well have been won had the attack been comparably good. Liverpool and their opponents last night had a full scale thunderstorm for a good part of the match, with tremendously heavy rain to accompany some vivid flashes and rumbling thunderclaps.” (Liverpool Echo: August 24, 1956)
