Arsenal promoted, Tottenham relegated: the real story

Arsenal promoted, Tottenham relegated: the real story

The third booklet in the AISA History of Arsenal series has just been published. Entitled Wartime, Promotion and the pre-Chapman years the booklet reviews the period during the war, and in the ensuing seven years before Herbert Chapman's arrival at Highbury.

If ever there was a contentious moment in the history of Arsenal Football Club, then the election to the First Division in 1919 was it. There is much more to the events of 1919 that meets the eye, and the authors bring out fully the story behind the decision that not only resulted in Arsenal's promotion but also in Tottenham Hotspur's relegation.
