Hard training and drink don’t mix

Saturday, October 21 – 1899
Liverpool have put in a week’s hard training at Fairhaven. St. Annes-by-the-Sea evidently did not agree with their digestion, hence the change.

May it prove effective.

Whilst on the subject of Liverpool I might mention that a friend of mine informs me that one of Liverpool’s most prominent players was seen in a hopeless state of intoxication on Saturday night last.

Dear me! That 8-0-8-0 business again!

He was evidently trying to forget it.

Under ordinary conditions I might have served it up hot for the forward in question, but I haven’t the heart to do it at present.
