Maybe even though it was short lived his arrival and legacy should give him the title MR. Arsenal.
Design the kit. Got the station named. The clock etc.

There are other things too that are less Arsenal specific, like pioneering the use of floodlights in the English game.

Beyond just Arsenal, he’s one of English footballs most important figures from that era. He won two league titles and an FA Cup at Huddersfield in a short period before coming to Arsenal.

We’ll forgive him being a Spurs player then :grimacing: :grin:

I think he was the guy who first turned Arsenal into a footballing giant.

Graham and Wenger definitely combined to revive us in the modern era and did great things but for me, they both stand in the shadow of this great footballing man.
