The Arsenal History Society is currently experimenting with Arsenal quizzes in various guises, and we’ve put a new one up today.
To make life easier we’ve also added three possible answers to each question, rather than leaving you on your own.
Now of course I know that Untold readers are incredibly knowledgable about all things Arsenal so here are the questions without the possible answers (but there’s a link to the quiz with possible answers at the end just in case that is a help).
1. Arsenal were directly implicated in the development of transfers and the introduction of the retain & transfer system in 1893. But the new system quickly got out of control. On 1 January 1908 a new maximum for transfer fees was introduced. What was it?
For a bonus point, what happened next?
2. The first day of January 1934 was a prelude to a black day for Arsenal, and football. What happened?
3. On 1 January 1968 Davor Suker was born. He was Real Madrid’s top man in his prime, and in his later years he came to Arsenal. But who did he go to after Arsenal?
4. On 1 January 1988 Arsenal appointed a new captain. Who?
5. On 1 January 1995 the News of the World ran the headline
“After 98 games, two years, four months, two weeks, two days, one hour and 19 minutes….” What?
6. On 1 January 2001, Charlton Athletic did something unusual. What?
7. On 2 January 1886 Selby played Woolwich Utd. So what?
8. On 2 January 1903 the Arsenal manager Harry Bradshaw faced trial in court. What was it alleged that had he done wrong? And what was the outcome?
9. On 2 January 1965 John Radford became what?
10. On 2 January 1970 Arsenal paid £100000 for a player for the first time. Who was it who moved to Arsenal?
The answers will be published on the Arsenal History Society blog tomorrow.
