Arsenal International Caps

Post by StuartL »

Was just doing a search on Arsenal International appearance holders and came across this article

http://www.thearsenalhistory.com/?p=14169

It is now a few seasons out of date, but I found it very interesting, particularly how few caps the likes of Alex James and Ted Drake won.

During their time Europe was in total chaos , Scotland hardly played any internationals which affected james and Drake's time at Arsenal was blighted by the second world war .

Yeah, Ted Drake only got 5 England caps but scored an impressive 6 goals! Then bizarrely, his career seemed to drop off a cliff between 1939-45 :?
