Pat Rice: a tribute from the Arsenal History Society

by Tony Attwood

Pat Rice (who was born on 17 March 1949 and who has just left Arsenal, after a lifetime’s service), made his first-team début in the League Cup match against Burnley on December 5 1967. I believe that the game against Norwich last week is counted as his last match. An astonishing […]

By Tony Attwood

So it is with me, but there is one moment […]

John “Pat” Flanagan: a name besmirched by a false story

By Tony Attwood

John Patrick “Pat” Flanagan was born in 1891 in Preston, Lancashire.

In football Pat Flanagan is a man who has had his name besmirched by the placing on the internet of a wholly false story about him which suggests that in the relegation year of 1912/13 he scored only two goals and […]
