Raisbeck too classy for Liverpool?
Raisbeck, we are told on the authority of a Scottish critic, is too classy for his present company, and yet Liverpool have command all the players who performed so successfully last season, with the one exception of George Allan, whose unfortunate illness is a matter for sincere regret.
So far, the vacant place has been very indifferently filled.
Mr. Tom Watson once had a chance of signing Beveridge, the ex-Third Lanark centre, and now of the Forest, but he didn’t take the opportunity.
Beveridge is not quite satisfying the latter, but he is probably better than the Liverpool centres.
