23 March 1910: With Arsenal in serious financial trouble Tottenham considered buying part or all of Woolwich Arsenal but the idea came to nothing.  Rangers however did make a small but symbolic investment which remained until the 21st century.  It was this investment which encouraged Chapman to launch the annual Arsenal v Rangers match in the 1930s.

23 March 1925: The start of a sequence of six games without a win, and part of a run of four wins in 19, which doomed Leslie Knighton to the sack in the summer. The attendance of only 10,000 added to Arsenal’s woes.

23 March 1925: Last game for Tom Whittaker.  He had played just 64 games for the club but his impact behind the scenes, starting as assistant trainer was much, much greater and he went on to be a major force in the club until his death while club manager in 1953.

23 March 1977: Stoke 1 Arsenal 1.  Arsenal’s first point in eight games, and just sixth goal in ten games.  The club was still without a win in 11 league matches – a record of the most unwelcome kind. Price got the goal.  The crowd was 13,951.
