  • - Brendan Rodgers' assistant manager at Liverpool, Colin Pascoe, said the following about this game: "I joined Swansea in 1981 as a youth trainee for two years - and I made my full league debut on my 18th birthday in 1983 at Anfield. It was an awesome experience. It being my 18th birthday made it a great event in itself, but to actually make the first XI and face Liverpool at Anfield was an extra special occasion. What I remember most about the game is chasing the ball! A lot of my memory of the day is quite blurred because it was so many years ago now, but I can remember pulling up at Anfield and there being a lot of fans outside, then going through the warm-up and kick-off. There was a brilliant atmosphere inside the stadium, and it was a great day - but unfortunately I was on the end of a 3-0 defeat!"
