Anfield Road is never likely to see George Allan again. Liverpool’s famous centre-forward is suffering from a lung complaint, which he has tried vainly to cure by a long stay at a Fifeshire health resort. A letter from his doctor to the club leaves little hope of his ever playing football again, and it is just a question whether his illness may not prove fatal.
