On 30 March 1938 the home and away league table looked like this. The team on the up was Middlesbrough with four wins and a draw in the last six games. The team at the top that had suffered a dip was Wolverhampton with just one win in the last six. Wolverhampton were however the only team attempting to play the same sort of game at home and away in the style evolved in the early part of the decade at Arsenal by Herbert Chapman
Arsenal, as we can see, had by far the best home record (13 wins and 44 goals in 16 games) but had the same number of away wins as Everton in 20th.
