  • Garry Birtles told The Guardian that Forest had Bill Shankly aboard their team coach when they arrived at Anfield. "Don't ask me how that came about. It didn't seem normal, but not much ever did under Brian Clough. Shankly must have come to our hotel or something, and we took him to the game. I never asked why. You just didn't."
