A large crowd expected at Anfield

Friday, December 31 – 1915 All through the season Liverpool Football Club have been springing surprises on us by selecting unknown quantities.

Finally the truth is out

Thursday, December 23 – 1915 Truth will out. Last Easter Manchester United Football Club beat Liverpool F.C. 2-0. The result was in accord with anticipation. So much so that a bookmaker who had issued coupons for bets, and had offered 8 to 1 against a correct score being […]
