Arsenal’s Top Seasons – 1952-53, our 12th best

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

The 1952-53 season started well for Arsenal as we won the opening two fixtures but then only managed to win two of the next eight matches. A 5-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield on November 15 helped to inspire the team and the goals continued to flow throughout that winter. We beat Bolton 6-4 (away from home on Christmas Day), Wolves 5-3, Spurs 4-0 and Derby 6-2 in the next couple of months.

I have to admit to knowing very little about Bate Borisov I didn't even know they were based in Belarus, in fact I don't even know where Belarus is! But, if they are in the Europa then they have to be decent opposition!

I have read that Hleb started his career at Bate, that they have won the Belarus League the last 11 years running, Their ground holds 13k and will be filled with Arsenal fans because Belarus has many Arsenal fan clubs.

(As a preface to this post, I want to make it clear that I have created a list of all of our Division 1 and PL seasons and sorted them first by league position and then by the points won %. Therefore this series may exclude trophy winning seasons where we did not finish high enough in the League).

Revelations and facts

Ospina's mother's maiden name was Ramirez

Chambers is closer to leaving than I realised.

Mertasacker will always be an Arsenal legend.

Holding purposely had his confidence massaged in this game.

Reiss-Nelson is not as advanced as I had hoped.

“Donny” come to The Emirates

The Rovers were formed in 1879, 138 years ago and turned professional in 1885, they have spent most of their years bouncing about in the lower leagues of English football and currently play in League 1 after gaining promotion from League 2 in 2016/17. Their ground is the Keepmoat Stadium which has a capacity of 15,231 which interestingly is bigger than Premier League Bournemouth's which only holds only 11,360.

It’s not the players … it’s the tune

Following on from yesterday's post, there was a degree of agreement that balance is a crucial factor in the way a team performs.

An extensionto that theory would be that the best team may not necessarily comprise the best 11 players. Jeff Beck playing in Black Lace (showing my age ) wouldn't have appreciably improved the music.

Superb performance, balanced side …. and without Ozil?

What you are about to read may be considered sacrilege by many. I don't want to cast any negatives after such a good result yesterday ..... but I'm just going to put something out there.

I only saw highlights of the game, but from that and the comments of respected bloggers,I think we all agree thatthe team performance was excellent with special mention for Monreal, Iwobi, Ramsey and Bellerin .

Now we travel to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

Chelsea Football Club was founded in 1905 and since that day their only ground has been Stamford Bridge. Since then they have had no less than 39 different managers go through their turnstiles.

The following does not make pleasant reading but the facts are that Stamford Bridge has not been a very happy hunting ground for Arsenal in the Premier League era.

1-0 Down, 3-1 Up.  MOTM: Arsene Wenger.

Here are some brief "feelings" on the back of last night's game, pulled together from my own thoughts as well as picking through the excellent comments on here from genuine experts.

  1. Back three/four. I think it's wrong to judge a system by the personnel. Throw Koscielny and Mustafi into yesterday's starting XI and I'm sure things would have looked different.

This season we play Thursday night football in the Europa League and our first game is home to Fußball-Club Köln also known as FC Köln or FC Cologne in English. They play in the Bundesliga, the highest league of German football and were Champions in 1962/3, 1963/4 and 1977/8. The club's nickname Die Geißböcke ("The Billy Goats") refers to the club's mascot, a male goat named after the veteran FC player and former manager Hennes Weisweiler.
