Pat Rice: a tribute from the Arsenal History Society

by Tony Attwood

Pat Rice (who was born on 17 March 1949 and who has just left Arsenal, after a lifetime’s service), made his first-team début in the League Cup match against Burnley on December 5 1967. I believe that the game against Norwich last week is counted as his last match. An astonishing […]

Bruce Rioch’s short spell at Arsenal – comings and goings on this day

Bruce Rioch was by no means the man with the shortest spell as Arsenal manager, but most of those who have managed for a shorter period of time have done so because they were temporary appointments: James McEwen (2 games), Pat Rice (4), Freddie Ljungberg (6)…

Beyond doubt the most successful of the short term […]

The man who single handedly destroyed Arsenal’s reputation

The impossible Reg Lewis: 42 goals in 23 games for Arsenal

Arsenal won the 1941-2 London League; one of the leagues played during the second world war, and it seems appropriate that this league season ended on this day, while we are still thinking about VE Day.

This season he played 23 league games and scored 42 goals! These included a run of seven games in […]

Whatever happened to Paul Davis?

All told Paul Davis played 447 times for Arsenal and scored 37 goals.

Paul left Arsenal in 1995 and had a spell in Norway before making a final bow with five appearances for Brentford, retiring in 1995. The following season he joined Arsenal as a youth coach and stayed in that position until 2003 when […]

The curious case of ex-Arsenal man Mark Randall

Mr Wenger once touted Mark Randall as a really important player for Arsenal with a huge potential. But it never happened for him, and he has moved regularly from club to club. And yet despite that constant urge to move on he has (according to the latest figures) played over 230 matches almost all in […]

Whatever happened to Luke Ayling?

In the “Whatever happened to” series, which is written to coincide with an anniversary, we are often dealing with players who simply didn’t make it at Arsenal, or simply didn’t make it at all.

And Luke Ayling has the look of one of these players having never played for Arsenal. But for him, his first […]

Whatever happened to Ashley Cole

 

After playing for Roma and LA Galaxy on 21 January 2019, Cole joined Derby County then managed by Frank Lampard. He was released at the end of the season and on 18 August 2019 announced his retirement.

Among his many other achievements, on 27 February 2011, Cole shot a 21-year-old student on work experience […]
