(Oct 12, 2015) Phil Brough said:
I guess the memory of the superb Hungarian team that beat England still lingered but Shanks was certainly very nervous about playing Honved and the crowd were very respectful and subdued. Quiet man Chris Lawler obliged the emotions with one of his headed goals, in the 2-0 win. I saw him score a number of similar goals but I cannot recall him moving forward in open play to get into goal scoring positions; he must have crept forward in his slippers. Opposing teams seem to have had the same trouble.
Honved were very defensive and Liverpool struggled to break through, even Roger Hunt had a bad night. I have Kenneth Wolstenholme's typed transcript for his televised report and he said "he must have sent his shooting boots to the cobblers". Wolstenholme scored the players out of 10; Tommy Smith, Ian Callaghan, and Peter Thompson the highest with 8.
