Charlie Wilson, the Liverpool centre-half, who had his leg broken whilst playing in a League match at Middlesbrough on Saturday, dreamt during Friday night that he was going to get his leg broken, and told his comrades about it on the journey to Middlesbrough.
He was chaffed by his companions, and the incident was forgotten until the accident happened a minute after the start. Mr. Tom Watson, secretary, of the Liverpool club, says that Wilson is one of the best servants in the team, and his injury is a distinct misfortune to himself and the club.
