So…shall we take it all the way back? I think we should. 1894 to be exact. Opponents being Northwich Victoria and the result being 4-0. At half time, the game was already to put to bed when Liverpool went into the break with a 3-0 lead in front of 3,000 hardcore Reds fans at Anfield. Goals from Duncan McLean, 2 from Jimmy Stott and a final goal from Harry Bradshaw saw Liverpool win the 2nd Divison game quite comfortably.
