Kevin Keegan and Leeds United's Billy Bremner were dismissed early in the second half. It was Keegan's second sending off in the week. He had been sent off in a friendly at Kaiserlautern four days earlier. Both he and Bremner received lengthy bans. It was probably the nastiest Charity Shield match ever played and the only surprise was that more players didn't join them for an early bath!

- Strangely enough Boersma wore the number 12 shirt from the start with nobody wearing the number 10 shirt for either Leeds or Liverpool.
