Arsenal in the summer of 1918. The new league planned as the end of the war approaches.

By Tony Attwood

May 1918 saw the end of the third wartime football season which we have covered in previous articles. Arsenal ended up fifth in the ten team league, and after a very healthy start the level of the crowds had fallen significantly.

Norris at the Arsenal: March 1918, crowds drop, rationing, the war turns

 

by Tony Attwood

Arsenal in 1918: Chapman’s downfall, votes for women, schooling for all, Arsenal erratic

by Tony Attwood

Through the first part of the 1917/18 – the third season of the London Combination wartime league, Arsenal had had a topsy turvy time, starting off brilliantly and then slumping to a series of defeats and draws.

By December they had recovered to a moderate middle-of-the-table form with 3 wins 2 draws […]
