April 1926: Arsenal come 2nd – the best performance yet – and the National Strike is called

by Tony Attwood
Arsenal opened the final full month of Chapman’s first season at Arsenal in second place in the league while recognising that following their recent stumbles in terms of results they now had no realistic chance of stopping Huddersfield getting their third title in a row.
However Arsenal were still in a good position to go for runners’ up spot for the first time in their history, being one point ahead of third placed Sunderland, with two games in hand and a better goal average.¬† Which meant¬† there would be a lot of attention on the match on 10 April between the two sides as there would be the following week against Huddersfield at home.
Here is the top of the league table ahead of this final month of games…
