  • - Liverpool's big win didn't exactly reflect the game. Liverpool Echo reported: "Clemence twisted, arched and defied gravity to keep out goals that Newcastle deserved.
    - Liverpool's second goal scored by Kevin Keegan was so described by Liverpool Echo: "With the litheness of a contortionist he twisted one way and another several times, with the ball bobbing between his feet, while Bobby Moncur hopped from one foot to another like someone jumping into the bath when the water is too hot, until he was knotted as adeptly as if a boy scout had roped him up."
