    These two quotes from your post suggest to me two home games against ‘the mob’ ‘tiny tots’ in the same season.

    Every Arsenal supporter knows the result of the last game at WHL for that season. Unless of course the supporter was born yesterday in that case a bit too young to know I would think.

    However a good question on any quizz about Arsenal would be this: ‘Arsenal won their away game against spuds in season 1970-71 what was the result of the home game? I think that would catch quite a few gooners.

  • Colario – you would be amazed at how little Arsenal history some people who proclaim themselves to be supporters, actually know. Indeed there are people who write in here and say, “what’s the point of writing about Arsenal’s history. what we need is a new defence”.

    I tend not to publish many of those comments – but they do come in.
