After the fine Cup runs of the previous two seasons 1932-33 was a bitter disappointment. In February Bert Pelham severed his connection with the club, and hopes were temporarily raised when, a month later, Jimmy Commins was reappointed manager. Commins, of course, had worked wonders in his first term as manager, but his second was by no means as successful from either a financial or a playing viewpoint.
The Liverpool Senior cup game against Tranmere Rovers was the be Commins first back in charge, and it turned out to be a great start.
