October 1923: Arsenal learn variable tactics as the vultures circle over Henry Norris

By Tony Attwood

For Arsenal the month of October 1923 began with a game against Manchester City at Maine Road on the 6th.

The League table printed in the programme for the game showed both clubs as needing to win to rise up the league and find safety althoughwith City in a slightly worse position […]

So awful did the press think him, they ran a weekly column on his mistakes. Arsenal signed him.

Very early example of a reserve team programme

By Tony Attwood

Arsenal in September 1923: recovery after a terrible start; a new insight into Henry Norris

By Tony Attwood

After a home defeat to Newcastle by 1-4 and a 0-1 away defeat to West Ham in August 1923, Arsenal and their supporters were desperate for the team not to fall into the early downward spiral that had beset them across recent seasons in the opening games, leaving them with a relegation […]

Anticipation a plenty but another terrible start to the season: August 1923

 

By Tony Attwood

Arsenal’s first league match of the 1923/4 season was to be played on 25 August and there were two pre-season friendlies (I suspect the Reds against the Blues or First Team against the Reserves, as normal) on the two Saturdays prior to the kick off.

And so, probably in common with […]

Arsenal in the Summer 1923: another Knighton allegation but the evidence is against him.

By Tony Attwood

As with other Arsenal in the summer articles, rather than stick to the exact chronology of events I am going to work through a few themes and stories, which will bend the chronology slightly. And to begin this Arsenal in the summer meander I’ll consider the tale of Jock Rutherford’s summer.
