    Given what is shown in the top left of this post for 30 April 1887, our solicitors should issue the RS with a 'cease and desist' letter regarding calling their ground by its present name, and hereafter call it by its original name: 'EVERTON GROUND, ANFIELD' ;) lol

    Was at that one! We were given the whole of the uncovered terracing behind one goal. Look forward and you watched the match. Turn around and you were looking at the cows and sheep in the field immediately behind the ground. I kid thee not!

    Was in my usual place in the Gwladys Street end at this game, aged 12. Sure that's Tony Macedo in goal for Fulham - always played with his sleeves half rolled up. Albert Dunlop played the last 4 games, as West was injured.

    My understanding of this sale was that he had been baled out of his gambling debts by Moore one time too many. Was warned but took no heed of the warning. Hence his being shifted to the other end of the country. That was what was in circulation at the time... I make no claim whatsoever that...

    I was at that game. The dirtiest display I have ever seen from a team. No wonder Leeds were given the title 'Dirty Leeds', and those my age still call them that. 'Collision' between Bell & Temple? Hilarious! Bell nearly disembowelled Temple and got away scot-free...
