September 13 1969
Manchester United 1 (Morgan 47)
Liverpool 1 (Thompson 23)
In a game that drove spectators to subscribe to Grass Growing Monthly for excitement, Manchester United and Liverpool drew 1-1 at Old Trafford. That’s it. Not much more happened. It’s as if time stood still for 90 minutes, but in real time. Liverpool hit the front in the first half, but United missed out on their third loss on the trot when they equalised just after half time. Now go away.
