Oooops, bit of a blunder by Martinez on this day. But we still win.

 

Welcome to the AISA Arsenal History Society.

The anniversaries for today are below…

There are now 295 videos we have gathered commemorating Arsenal events on individual days are to be found via this link.   In addition to those 295 we have now added Wolverhampton to the video collection series in which we are gathering together the best videos we have against each club we have played in recent years.   Here is the list of clubs covered so far…

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.

Here are the anniversaries

15 July 1946: Cyril Grant joined from Lincoln and was seen as a possible replacement for Ted Drake.  He was one of 18 players newly recruited to the club for the first post-war season, but as with many others, was not a success.

15 July 1979 John Hollins joined from QPR.  He played initially for Chelsea (including a spell as captain) and in 12 years knocked up 436 appearances including 167 consecutive games, before having four seasons at QPR.  After that he moved to Arsenal aged 33.

15 July 2015: Singapore XI 0 Arsenal 4 (Akpom 3, Wilshere).  This was the start of only the second unbeaten pre-season in Arsenal’s modern history.  The first was in 2005.  In the early 20th century Arsenal had several unbeaten end of season tours.
