Much to Mourinho’s dismay, on this day Arsenal bought Cech

The list of the 270+ videos we have gathered commemorating events on individual days are to be found via this link.   We are also developing our video collection series in which we are gathering together the best videos we have against each club we have played in recent years – and adding some new ones to the list as we go.   Here is the list of clubs covered so far… the latest addition is Manchester City

Today’s Arsenal anniversaries are published below.  We don’t have a video for this day but another collection from a particular club will go up shortly.

The Arsenal History Society is part of the Arsenal Independent Supporters Association – a body which gives positive support to the club, and has regular meetings with directors and senior officials of the club to represent the views of its members to the club.  You can read more about AISA on its website.

100 Years in the First Division: the absolute complete story of Arsenal’s promotion in 1919.

And here are … the anniversaries

29 June 1900: Loughborough FC, the team against whom Arsenal had their largest league victory, finally folded.  They had been in serious financial difficulty for some time and Arsenal had paid their train fares so they could complete their final visit to Plumstead.  The town gained a new team in 1955 – Loughborough Dynamos now in the Northern Premier League.

29 June 1914: The international exhibition opened at the “White City”.  It closed on the declaration of war and the site was used as an armaments depot.

29 June 1923: Ernest Williamson was granted a free transfer to Norwich after over 100 games in goal.  He played for Norwich for two seasons, before retiring from football in 1925 after which we lose sight of him completely

29 June 1929: Billy Warnes, one of the “Walsall Experiment” players in Herbert Chapman’s last ever FA Cup match, was signed.  The FA Cup match against Walsall was his only first team game for the club.  See also here

29 June 1971: Don Howe left Arsenal having helped guide the club to the Double as first team coach.  He moved on to WBA where he stayed until 1975 before a year at Galatasaray SK after which he returned to Arsenal as manager.

29 June 1982: Kenny Sansom and Graham Rix – two players who had troubled times in later life – played for England against West Germany in a goalless draw in the world cup.

29 June 1998: Dennis Bergkamp scored in the Netherland’s 2-1 world cup win over Yugoslavia in France.  Mark Overmars was also in the team.

29 June 2003: Thierry Henry scored in the 97th minute with the golden goal that gave victory over Cameroon in the Confederations Cup Final.

29 June 2015: After much expectation, Arsenal purchased Petr Cech from Chelsea for around £10m.  It was reported that the Chelsea manager Mourinho was particularly unhappy about the sale. Cech returned to Chelsea as a coach in 2019.
