Poor old George Allan


September 16, 1899
It has been freely rumoured for some time past that George Allan would ere long be seen in his old position in the Liverpool team, and not a few Liverpudlians rejoiced greatly thereof.

Tom Watson, however, tells me that he rumour is of the usual “good old special” quality, and pathetically adds, “Diseased lungs are not cured in a day.”

Allan’s absense is now beginning to be felt, and we are able to estimate him at his true worth.

Poor old George!
