FA Cup Semi-final replay

Burnden Park | Thu 23 Mar 1899 at 16:00

Liverpool 4 - 4 Sheffield United

Opposition goals


  • - George Allan missed a penalty on 72'
  • - Average age of the Liverpool starting lineup: 24.35
  • - His kick was saved by Sheffield United goalkeeper Billy Foulke but Jack Cox scored from the rebound.
    - Storer was criticized by his own fans during the game for his below-par performance. The writer of Manchester Evening News agreed with the fans on that matter: "[Storer] gave a rather sorry exhibition at Burnden Park, and almost the entire blame of the failure on Thursday has been made his burden... There is no doubt he was seriously at fault in his guardianship of the goal and a great deal of the criticism he was subject to was not altogether too severe."
