White Lines Wash Out Arsenal Match On This Day, 16th November 1929

Thanks to Andy (@Gooner_AK) for this one. I wondered what the reaction today would be. No doubt Sky would still be running the story a week later. The establishment’s method of quelling supporter disquiet was unusual to say the least.

Arsenal would regret this abandonment, losing the replayed match 11 days later by the odd goal in three.
