July 25, 1892
Almost before the ink of my last week’s notes were dry the Football League had withdrawn the boycott, so far as the Liverpool Club was concerned, and as a consequence a number of fixtures have already been arranged by that club with League organisations, including Notts County, from whom the boycott is said to have come.
The League, powerful though it has become, will certainly get itself into serious trouble with the Association if it continues to play the role of the despot with clubs, which happen to have incurred its displeasure. I hear that several members of the Football Council are determined to take the matter up when a clear case presents itself.
