  • - "Despite just scoring my first hat trick for Liverpool away at Norwich, I was still relegated to the bench for the midweek cup semi-final visit of Nottm Forest. It was a massive personal blow but was something I was becoming used to so I shouldn't have felt totally surprised about being omitted by Bob Paisley. I'm sure it wouldn't have happened at any other club." - David Fairclough
