Sheffield Wednesday may not currently occupy a place at the top table of English football but at this point in time, they were one of the most successful clubs in the professional game.
They were undefeated at home en route to winning the title in 1928-29 and successfully defended it. They would finish third three times in the subsequent four seasons, as well as adding the 1935 FA Cup to their trophy cabinet. The magnitude of Arsenal’s win on this day should not be understated.
There is an interesting coincidence between the two clubs. In 1927-28, Wednesday finished in 14th place with 39 points before going on to win the title in the following campaign. Arsenal would finish 1929-30 in 14th place with 39 points before…well, you’ve guessed where this one is going, haven’t you?
