Liverpool F.C. in need of a centre forward

January 2, 1902
Liverpool showed a great improvement on recent form in beating Blackburn Rovers after a very tough fight. The accident list of the champions has been a long one, and has probably kept the team from making the headway of last season.

The “Liverpool Mercury” takes the view that what is required in the Liverpool front line is a centre that can whip the ball across to his wings – something after the style of the late George Allan, who made this the chief feature of his play. And with men like John Cox (than whom there are few cleverer outside left wingers) and Andy McGuigan (whose speed alone makes him a dangerous opponent on the right extremity) there should be no hesitation in simply overloading these fliers with continuous opportunities.
