Sublime Saka goal on this day as Arsenal beat Wolverhampton

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.

Here are the anniversaries

4 July 1931: Tommy Black joined Arsenal from Strathclyde.  He played 16 reserve games in 1932/3 before playing in the notorious defeat to Walsall in the FA Cup. He was transferred to Plymouth Argyle six days after the Walsall game.  He ended his career at the outbreak of war in 1939.

4 July 1977: Six weeks after winning the FA Cup with Man U, Tommy Docherty admitted his affair with Mary Brown, the wife of the club’s physiotherapist.  The club’s directors decided that he had broken their moral code and he was sacked.  It wasn’t widely mentioned since nobody realised Man U had a moral code.

4 July 1990: Andy Linighan purchased from Norwich for £1.2m.  He had previously
played for Hartlepool, Leeds and Oldham.

4 July 1998: Dennis Bergkamp became the Netherlands top scorer.  He went on to score 37 goals in 79 international games – despite not wishing to fly to away matches.  He left his coaching role with Ajax in December 2017. 

4 July 2002: Start of the Alex Manninger adventure at Espanyol which ended 7 weeks later with the club saying they never had the money to buy him in the first place.  The fee was £760,000.  He retired in 2017 and worked in the furniture and property industries.

4 July 2013: Hector Bellerin signed a new long-term contract.  Having transferred
from Barcelona in 2011 as a youth player he had been on loan at Watford during 2013/14 before in September 2014 making his Arsenal debut following a spate of injuries to other defenders.  In 2016 and 2017 he was daily reported across all media as moving back to Barcelona.  Amazingly it was all lies.  How extraordinary!

4 July 2014: Hugo Keto joined Arsenal for an undisclosed fee from HJK Helsinki.  He went on to be the under 21 keeper for Finland and under 23 keeper for Arsenal but in July 2018 moved  to Brighton.

4 July 2020.  Arsenal beat Wolverhampton away 0-2 as the league continued to struggle to catch up with matches missed during earlier parts of the coronavirus lockdown.  It was our fourth consecutive victory in the league.
