  • "That must be the best goal Anfield has ever seen", said Paisley about McDermott's header.
    - "Have you ever heard 50,000 people purr with pleasure? Well, the Anfield spectators were doing that constantly as Liverpool stroked the ball around with one-touch moves of staggering accuracy. This display confirmed for me, particularly after the splendour of their wins at Ipswich and City the previous week, that the current Liverpool team is playing better, more exciting, attacking football than any side I've seen since the war". - Michael Charters in the Liverpool Echo.
