  • - Joey Jones was part of the Liverpool team that suffered a humilliating defeat vs. Villa: "We were 1-5 down when we trooped off at half-time. Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan, Ronnie Moran and Roy Evans were waiting and each delivered his rollicking in his own particular way. Joe lost his cool, to say the least, and when he did that we all sat up. Then Bob, Ronnie and Roy gave their verdicts. Now matter how big the name, we all caught it in the neck. I had never known anything like it."
