Arsene’s Double Double: A Cool Cat In His Magic Hat – published by Legends
A poetic tribute by Dave Seager, illustrated by Poorly Drawn Arsenal
During Arsenal’s third match of this season, BBC’s Jonathan Pearce came out with this fact:
“Not since Phil Kelso in 1904 has an Arsenal manager started with just one draw from their opening three games”
He was referring to Kelso’s first three games at the start of the 1904-05 season which was Woolwich Arsenal’s first in the top flight. However, whilst putting together our latest book – Arsenal: The Complete Record – we discovered that this wasn’t correct.
Over the next couple of months, we have arranged a number of events to publicise our two recently released books. These events give you the opportunity to have a chat with us, meet some like-minded Arsenal fans but, more importantly, get your books signed by some proper Arsenal legends. Read More →

On 24 February 1934, Arsenal travelled north to play Newcastle United at St James’ Park. A 1-0 win saw the Gunners back on track to retain the Football League title which looked like it could be derailed following the untimely death of Herbert Chapman.
On the journey back to London, the train that the players were on was involved in a major accident that resulted on six of the team, including David Jack and Cliff Bastin, being tragically killed.
Dermot Drummy was a reserve and youth player during the Terry Neill period. Let go by Arsenal he carved out a non league career for himself before finding his niche as a successful youth coach.
Brian Whitehouse was Arsenal’s FA Youth Cup winning manager of 1971, but he left soon after with Don Howe to return to his home team, West Bromwich Albion after the board’s slight at Howe’s role in Arsenal’s historic double winning season.
