Football: On This Day 2 November 1974


PLAYERS over-tired by November? Not a new phenomenon by any means, judging by the Liverpool manager Bob Paisley's reaction to his side's defeat at Ipswich in a clash of First Division title contenders on this day 28 years ago. "We had six men on international duty in the week, four with England, one with Wales and one with Eire, and I believe this is why we lost," Paisley moaned after Brian Talbot's goal seven minutes from time had enabled Ipswich to join Manchester City and Everton in joint second place. The last-named defeated Tony Book's City 2-0 at Goodison Park. If Arsenal think they have a crisis currently it would appear nothing compared with their predicament in 1974 when only Luton stood between them and the bottom of the table. Speculation was rife that Peter Shilton, transfer-listed by Leicester, was about to move to Highbury but the Arsenal centre-half Terry Mancini rallied to the support of team-mate Jimmy Rimmer after the goalkeeper had saved the Londoners a point with a brilliant late save from Wolves' Alan Sunderland - who, of course, would subsequently become a Gunners hero himself. Shilton instead joined Stoke later in the month for pounds 325,000, then the world record fee for a goalkeeper.
