Podcast 175: Winning at Dominoes 6 – The Men Who Built Arsenal

by | Aug 26, 2019

This week’s 200% podcast is another episode of Winning at Dominoes. A couple of weeks ago, we had the story of Stamford Bridge. This week, we make a short hop across London to revisit the story of how two managers came to define a football club, Herbert Chapman and George Allison. Chapman’s premature death ended an extraordinary managerial career, which took in financial scandal, smashing league records, and broader innovations, including creating much of the modern football manager, the early beginnings of tactics, and playing a massive hand in giving Arsenal Football Club an identity, following their move from south of the river. Allison, meanwhile, was no great innovator, but he did understand the media and the imprtrance of colaborative work in making a football club tick over.
