Arsenal v Newcastle: the video


This is one of the days where it is difficult if not impossible to find a video of Arsenal playing and winning on the day in question – and I don’t like to put up films of the club losing. And there is a connection because Arsenal have played Newcastle on this day – I just can’t find the video. So this is Arsenal v Newcastle, and an Arsenal win, and with a very tenuous connection to 2 January.

Portsmouth v Arsenal 2009: the video

On this day the league table before the game looked like this… and in passing it is interesting to note that nine out of the 20 clubs in the league in 2009 are no longer part of the Premier League.
