Football forecasts


January 7, 1898
* Liverpool are the funniest team on earth.
* The Wolves last season offered £250 for Abe Hartley. He has been secured by Liverpool at the same figure.
* A referee is justified in extending the time of play when one team continually kicks out.
* Richard Gray, the Burton Swifts goalkeeper, has saved 14 out of 16 penalty kicks.
* Astley Bridge Wanderers F.C. will become a sort of dry nurse to Bolton Wanderers. The latter lends pecuniary assistance, and the cream of the Astley players will sign League papers for the Wanderers.
* Rab Howell, the Sheffield United half back, was born in a caravan.
