  • 07/14/17--11:28: Jimmy Quinn


  • The idol of the people a gentleman who spends his Saturday afternoons endeavoring to kick a leather ball into a net. If he is successful in his efforts the eighty thousand or so who look on are seen to assume a pleased expression.
    The game might be made more exciting if all the players kicked in the same direction , as more goals would be scored, and , after all, goals are what the spectators want.  
    The greatest names in history are those of napoleon, Gladstone and Jimmy Quinn- these three, and the greatest of these is Jimmy Quinn. If you don't believe me ask anybody in Parkhead. 

    Jimmy Quinn played 331 first team matches for Celtic (1900-15), scoring 216 goals.
    He won 8 Scottish  League titles and 5 Scottish Cup winner's medals.
    He represented the Scottish league 8 times (7 goals) and the Scottish national team 11 times (7 goals).

  • 07/16/17--10:38: United avoid the drop
  • United keeper Jack Hacking catches a cross

    Modern day audiences might find it hard to believe that once upon a time Manchester United had to beat Millwall in the last game of the season in order to stay in Division 2.
    As the end of the 1934-35 season approached with 41 out of 42 rounds of matches completed Lincoln City were already down with 25 points.
    Notts County, in 18th, were safe on 35 points.
    In between were Swansea Town (33), Millwall (33) and Manchester United (32).
    United had conceded 85 goals, 10 more than any other team in the Division, and had lost 22 of 41 matches played.  Their average home attendance was just 18,500. Manchester City were drawing crowds of 30,000 plus. And so to 05.05.1934. Swansea Town would have been relieved that their crucial match was at home, they hadn't won an away game all season. They duly defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-1 at the Vetch Field with goals from Jack Firth and Wilf Milne.
    Meanwhile at the Den Jackie Cape and Tom Manley gave United a 2-0 win in front of a crowd of 35,000. The Sheffield Independent described the result as one of the most remarkable successes of the day.

    I initially thought 'Genoa Cricket and Football Club' when I saw this handsome fellow, but the colours are reversed.

  • 07/29/17--14:29: Arthur Grimsdell
  • Arthur Grimsdell made his debut for Tottenham Hotspur in April 1912.
    His career was interrupted by the 1914-18 war.
    He had been touted as an England international as early as 1913, and played in 2 Victory Internationals in 1919, but his full international debut was delayed until 1920. He represented England 6 times, captaining on 3 occasions.
    The picture shows The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII, meeting Arthur Grimsdell prior to the match between Spurs and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 16th October 1920. Spurs won 4-0. Earlier that month Spurs had beaten Chelsea 5-0 at White Hart Lane.
    Grimsdell was back at the Bridge the following March, meeting King George V and the Duke of York as Tottenham won the FA Cup.

  • 08/11/17--12:34: The Two Referee System
  • Sheffield Independent 15.11.34 

     Whereas nowadays we debate the use of video technology to assist referees the concern in the 1930s was that referees could not keep up with the pace of the modern game. At this time Stanley Rous, inspired by continental referees such as John Langenus, introduced the diagonal method. This now universally adopted system maximized collaboration between  the referee and linesmen.

  • 08/21/17--09:50: Scotland v England 1884


  • Played at Cathkin Park 15.03.84.
    This was the inaugural season of the British Home Championship and the Scotland England clash was always likely to be the decider. This was the 13th meeting between the 2 sides. Scotland had won 8 of the previous 12 matches and England had not beaten them since 1879.
    For the first time in international football admission was by ticket only.
    Dr John Smith scored the only goal of the game in the 8th minute to give Scotland a 1-0 victory.
    The illustration shows 'A Bailey' but it is in fact Norman Coles Bailey, while E.C Bambridge Swift is E.C Bambridge of the club The Swifts. Francis Marindin , here acting as Umpire for England was so well known as to be recognizable only by the title The Major.
    The contrast in stature between the illustrated English and Scotch (sic) players is worthy of note. The era of the gentleman amateur was drawing to a close, but the England approach was still largely based on the muscular public schools approach whereas Scottish football was more tactically refined.

  • 08/27/17--13:59: Estadio Centenario
  • Estadio Centenario, Montevideo.
    A super stadium purpose built for the 1930 FIFA World Cup.
    The stands commemorated the triumphs of Uruguay's Golden Decade (Amsterdam, Colombes, Olympic).
    Originally the plan was to hold all 18 matches at Estadio Centenario, but in the event games were also played at Estadio Gran Parque Central and Estadio Pocitos. Centenario hosted 10 games, which yielded 44 goals.
    The stadium was capable of accommodating 90,000 spectators. The official attendance for the final was 68,346, 11,500 less than attended the semi final of Uruguay vs Yugoslavia.
    The diagram has the pitch divided into squares as a means of helping radio listeners keep track of where the action was (a system pioneered by BBC commentators).

  • 08/29/17--12:28: Pilgrims
  • The Pilgrims, a selection of  amateur invitees, made 2 tours to North America in the 1900s.

    1905
    The 1905 tour was financed by C. H. Murray, an American 'gentleman'. In addition to the players and Mr Murray other  travelers were Baron Von Reiffenstein (who was the backer of the amateur Southern League outfit Southern United), Mr.J. J. Bentley (President of the Football League, Vice-President of the Football Association), and Lady Kirkpatrick.
    Sir Charles Kirkpatrick was a middle distance runner pressed into service as a goalkeeper.
    Fred Milnes was captain.
    Milnes and Woodward were due to meet President Roosevelt, who advocated Association football over the American game, but sadly the meeting never took place.
    The object of the 1905 Tour was to promote Association Football, and this was met with some opposition by College authorities who had embraced the dreadful hybrid collision sport that passed for 'football' in North America. Sir Charles vehemently and diplomatically denied that they wanted to displace the native code.
    Sir Ernest Cochrane donated a trophy to be contested by American colleges, and the match between The Pilgrims and New York was played for the Cochrane Cup.
    There are references to some games being played under ‘Canadian Rules’ which may be a euphemism for rough play. The Canadian game allowed players to be 'checked' or charged when they were nowhere near the ball.
    The intention was to play some cricket, but I can find no reference to this happening.

  • 09/02/17--13:20: France 1906

  • 01.11.06- Parc des Princes, Paris. France's 5th international match and the first appearance of the England Amateur international side.

     The French side was:
