046 – Everybody, Achtung Arsenal

Two scans today from the start of the soon to be curtailed 1939/40 season. With war just around the corner football started as normal but the Football League as we know it was to last but a couple of matches before being suspended for the duration.

The first scan is of a cartoon of the team given away by Everybody Magazine, and the second, rather ironically but again showing Arsenal’s popularity around the continent, is from German football magazine ‘Der Kicker’ (03-09-1939).
