I’m not sure if you heard the news about yesterday’s match but…

Arsenal Anniversaries: Allison takes over as Arsenal’s third manager in three years.  

 Wenger ponders whether Yaya Sanogo will ever really be good enough for Arsenal. 

28 May 1900: Frank Lloyd transferred to Aston Villa, after just one season with Arsenal in which he played 18 league games and scored three goals.  His transfer date is also quoted as 26 May in some quarters.

28 May 1914: Frank Bradshaw signed from Everton.  He played in the final pre-war season and then in the four seasons immediately after the war totalling 132 league games with 14 goals.

28 May 1934: George Allison became the manager of Arsenal.  Upon the sudden death of Herbert Chapman, Allison had acted as middle-man between the board of Jo Shaw.  Shaw immediately (and seemingly happily) returned to his duties with the reserves at the end of his triumphal season, and Allison took on the role, ending after the first post-war season.

28 May 1937: Reg Lewis made first senior appearance in a friendly v Copenhagen and scored twice as Arsenal won 4-1.  His scoring knack continued through his time at Arsenal and he ended his career with 103 league goals in 154 games.

28 May 1956: Johnny Petts signed as a professional.  Although he stayed at the club for five years he only made 32 appearances before moving on to Reading.

28 May 1976: Jimmy Rimmer made his only appearance for England, in a 3-2 win against Italy in New York

28 May 1999: Oleg Luzhny joined Arsenal for £1.8m from Dynamo Kyiv. He had been the captain of the side that got to the semi-finals of the 1999 Champions League, beating Real Madrid and Barcelona en route.

28 May 2013: Kyle Ebecilio to FC Twente on a free transfer.  He had come to Arsenal from Feyenoord and never played for the Arsenal first team but played for the Netherlands at every level from under 16 to under 21.
