Key note: “Bill Shankly delivered some blistering home truths to his too-casual players during the half-time interval at Carlisle yesterday. His pep-talk – or perhaps it should be called his call to battle – had an explosive effect. I reckon it was this behind-the-scenes drama which was directly responsible for Liverpool winning their fourth round FA Cup replay by 2-0. It was a comfortable victory in the end but it never looked likely during a first half which Carlisle commanded with calm, intelligent football. Liverpool’s reply to this was so poor that it looked as if Carlisle had only to continue to play with the same smooth threat and they would break through for a shock victory.” (Liverpool Echo: January 30, 1974)
