Re: Scottish Alliance

BTW, apologies to Brian McColl for holding his results grids up for intense public scrutiny like this. Brian is the only man who was brave enough to put the Scottish Alliance out there - R.E.S.P.E.C.T. I'm using the grids as they're a guiding focal point for others to use as the backbone for this ta...

Re: Scottish Alliance

I should add that the General Notes statement per SFHA is, of course, pending Brian's approval in regards to the 1 additional result and 3 corrected results for the grid.

Re: Scottish Alliance

Before I finalise any tables I'd like to make sure I've got the Alliance story straight, since I like to make side statement notes ("elected", "not-elected", "resigned" etc etc). Having looked at the situation I must say it's clearly the most complicated League for seasonal movement that Thistle hav...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Alliance 1892-93 Ok, I've put some solid graft into this - labour intensive but an exceedingly easy task thanks to the SFHA grid sitting there as a ready made template. I decided to take a chronological run through the press archives and made it worth my while by picking up opposing team line ups, ...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Richard sends this: Airdrie v Killie on 10th September was Airdrie's home fixture. Killie v Airdrie was due to be played on 8th April, but was postponed because Killie played Celtic in a Friendly at Rugby Park instead. Therefore match on 13th May at Airdrie was Killie's "home" fixture. Very re-assu...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Morton v Port Glasgow There are 2 press reported instances of Morton v Port Glasgow - 7 Nov (1-2) and 21 May (3-1). Personally, yet to see a report for either using the "Alliance" term. Which (if any of these) is the Alliance game? Looking again at the reports, I'm leaning towards the 7th November ...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Thanks David and Richard. 6-1 Killie it is, brilliant stuff. All agreed on Killie 5 Thistle 1 as well, strong reports in Herald and Scotsman for that one.

Re: Scottish Alliance

Further question,

Would anyone be able to confirm that equal points meant an equal placing in this League?

Re: Scottish Alliance

Brian, I currently count 3 changes, not too bad. I'll do you a summary at the end. Andy, thanks a lot for that AFS page scan. I ran my eyes over the grids for a double check. No more results anomalies. As for those wild dates, WOW! I've rarely seen the likes. Pushing 20% error across the grid. I pic...

Re: Scottish Alliance

^ Thankfully, I don't think it's a case of result changes Jeroen. Imagine? We would need to track down the minutes from the Alliance AGM. If your research in the Netherlands needs to deal with that issue then you have my sympathy. There was certainly a big "protest culture" in 19th century Scotland....

Re: Scottish Alliance

Obviously, they can't both be right. Even the Champions points total is at odds. As previously suspected, St Bernard's and Partick Thistle are the only two which check out and tally perfectly in both tables. So, now the tricky bit, which results in the s-f-h-a grid are right? Maybe all of them? Hmm....

Re: Scottish Alliance

Thanks indeed Sir that's very helpful indeed. I do believe the proverbial can o' worms has been well and truly opened. Help ma boab... I'll take baby steps for the moment... laying aside grand plans for home and away splits for now... I added these 4 to the s-f-h-a results grid... Morton 5 Linthouse...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Thanks Alan. Is there a convenient and cheap way for me to get my eyes on that? Alternatively, if anyone else has access, could they be encouraged to take ten minutes out to do a cross grid health check? I'm encouraged that the grid from s-f-h-a is completely perfect in date and score for the 20 Par...

Scottish Alliance

Looking to create perfect tables for this League for its inaugural season, 1891-92 and then again for season 1892-93. Preferably, with home and away break downs together with the full report. Brian McColl has broke the ground with this work... http://scottish-football-historical-archive.com/scottish...
