PETER CORMACK 1972-76

Nationality - Scottish

Position - Midfield

Games - 178

Goals - 26

Club Hons (Lpool) - League Championship 1972/73, 75/76, UEFA Cup 1972/73, FA Cup 1973/74

Edinburgh-born midfielder Peter arrived at Anfield in July 1972 after having played 72 League games for Nottingham Forest and double that number for his home-town club Hibernian.

 

His experience and creativity added something extra to the squad that had narrowly missed out on the championship in 1971-72 and Peter was an important part of Shankly's 'new' team which won not only the First Division title in 1972-73 but also the club's first-ever European trophy, the UEFA cup.

 

Peter had to wait until the 7th League fixture of the season (at Derby's Baseball Ground) before being handed his League debut but he scored on his home debut against Wolves the following week and never looked back after that, finishing with 8 goals from his 30 starts plus another 22 appearances in the different cup competitions.

 

1973-74 was another good year for Peter. He figured in all 42 League matches and added an F.A. cup winners' medal to his collection. Aged 28 when the 1974-75 season began, he looked to have years of success ahead of him at Anfield but when Bob Paisley's master-stroke converted Ray Kennedy from a lumbering forward into a graceful midfielder, it was Peter who suffered as a consequence.

 

He did qualify for another championship medal in 1975-76 after starting 16 League matches but was clearly surplus to requirements at Liverpool and it was no real surprise when he moved on to Bristol City in November 1976.

    • Yeah.   Klopp made a good point in his post match presser. He asked the room if anybody thought it was a penalty and 1 or 2 said they did (probably local Naples reporters). But the fact a couple did means it wasn’t a clear & obvious error.    However, it certainly wasn’t a clear cut penalty either. Personally, I think if it was referred he’d have overturned it as he didn’t stand for any of their shit all night - and IMO it should have been referred.   I’ve said before I like VAR, or at least the idea of it, but the implementation isn’t as expected & it’s gotten worse since the World Cup 18 months ago (although not perfect, it was actually decent in Russia IMO).    Anyway, I’m over it. Treat it as a minor inconvenience / annoyance and back us to win the next 4.
    • Virgil Van Dijk has played down the impact of Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat at the hands of Napoli in their Champions League clash on Tuesday evening.

      The Reds were looking good for a well earned point against the Italian side before a debatable penalty and a late strike in injury time by Fernando Llorente was enough to see the home side claim the three points.

      But Van Dijk said the defeat which was only their second in a competitive fixture this campaign, was not a cause for worry.

      The Liverpool Echo reported the defender as saying:

      “It didn’t feel like a wake-up call, I think both sides were focused fully on the game, It felt like it was going to be a draw, and then the penalty changed everything in the game. 

      “It shouldn’t be a wake-up call - we have been performing since the start of the season outstanding, and so there is no reason to panic.

      “And in the game as well, we played well, we put them under pressure, we created opportunities on the break. 

      “So there were a lot of positive things , the only thing not positive was the result.”  

      Van Dijk believed the final score was not a true reflection of the overall contest and the performance was full of merit.

      He also believed the penalty awarded against Andy Robertson completely changed the outcome of the game.

      “I think 2-0 didn’t really reflect the game.

      “I think we were much better (than last season) we lost it (again), but we played well, we had opportunities on the break, we played in some moments.

      “We felt comfortable, then they got the penalty which changed the game.”

      “Lots of times you can say that it felt a little bit harsh, but the ref made the decision so you have to accept it.

      “Everyone knows how tough it is to come here and beat them, first of all, but also to play well against them. 

      “But you could see we put them under a lot of pressure to try and win the ball quite a lot high up the pitch, and try to break on them.”

      The Reds will look to return to winning ways when they play Chelsea at Stanford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

    • Excellent report as per usual Dave,I agree with you on the VAR.... but what if as was suggested (by someone!)that captains are given 3 chances to question the decision (tennis & cricket)... works fine there & doesn't take long & everyone knows what the fuck is happening at least! 
    • He was decent here, but we replaced him with a better player in Fabinho. 
    • Once Everton touches you, you're better off asking a friend to make it quick.
