@markmetcalf07 @SpiksleyBook @abwhite1952 @SunderlandAFC @pnefc Fascinating article. It shows that disagreement with refereeing decisions is as old as the Football League and even back in 1891 referees were against North End 😀

@SpiksleyBook @abwhite1952 - until 1891 refs never in total control, now VAR again removing control - it was end of season 1890/91 battle @SunderlandAFC and @pnefc that acted as spur towards referees being on pitch but for how much longer - a Sunday Mirror article last weekend https://t.co/PMtrnZM362

Pa Jackson said there had been a great desire by Lancashire to get the headquarters of the @fa transferred to Manchester. They knew that Alcock could not act as secretary and therefore hoped to acquire the position for one of their leaders. Association Football 1899 N.L. Jackson https://t.co/8nXxDuiX77

A piece of history in June 1887, it was this meeting in mid June that saw Sheffield Wednesday decide to become a professional club and without such a decision the club would certainly have gone out of business. Sheffield Daily Telegraph Tuesday 7 June 1887. https://t.co/qGjshnHh5T

@Maff112 @SpiksleyBook @Karlsruher_FV @KarlsruherSC From what we know, Townley was given safe passage back to England, possibly because he was so revered. Others, like Bloomer etc in Ruhleben weren’t so lucky of course.

@BritCoachesInDE @SpiksleyBook @Karlsruher_FV @KarlsruherSC Crazy to think how many people here was killed or wounded during the great war and what happened to William being English in Germany

Quoted @Martin_632535

@BritCoachesInDE @SpiksleyBook @Karlsruher_FV @KarlsruherSC Any ideas where this game was played?

There’s a Wikipedia page on 1910 German Championship and that links to German sites and that states the ground although we can’t check that direct with any other links through that. https://t.co/lO4fJY1ozO
