Tales from the Top Flight: The Higher Tempo Press. Arsenal won the title with two games to spare, and finished the season having scored league goals another club record , though Aston Villa managed to score , which is still a record for the most goals in an English top flight season.
Arsenal had led 1—0 with a Bob John goal, but Newcastle's equaliser came after a long ball had gone over the goal line, and out for a goal kick;  Newcastle winger Jimmy Richardson nevertheless crossed the ball back into play and Jack Allen levelled the match for the Magpies; Allen scored again in the second half to win the match 2—1.
Arsenal's pain was compounded by the fact that Everton had pipped them to the League title; a poor start to the —32 campaign meant Arsenal played catch-up for most of the season, finishing two points adrift.
Arsenal bounced back the following season , winning their second League title. Arsenal had started the season weakly, but then went on a long winning run to catch up and then overtake fellow title challengers Aston Villa, whom they beat 5—0 at Highbury in April to clinch the title. The only blot on the club's record was an infamous loss to Walsall of the Third Division North in the FA Cup; five of the first team were out with injury or flu and had their place taken by reserves,  and without them Arsenal lost 2—0 in one of the greatest FA Cup upsets of all time. Arsenal had started the —34 season solidly, but in January Herbert Chapman died suddenly from pneumonia.
Despite this, under caretaker manager Joe Shaw Arsenal retained the title that season; Hulme and James were both out with injury for a large portion, and so Arsenal were not the attacking side they had been the previous season, scoring only 75 in the League, compared with in — George Allison who had formerly been a director of the club took over the job of team manager in summer and soon signed new blood for the side, including wing halves Jack Crayston and Wilf Copping whose signings had been initiated by Chapman , and striker Ted Drake.
Wolves , 8—1 v. Liverpool , and 8—0 twice, v. Leicester City and v. Arsenal's ongoing success attracted larger and larger crowds. Meanwhile, the North Bank and Clock End terraces had roofs installed.
The new stadium saw its largest attendance, 73,, on 9 March for a match against Sunderland. Arsenal's dominance of the decade was sealed with a second FA Cup in —36 , winning 1—0 against Sheffield United with a goal from Drake. Arsenal faded in the League somewhat after the —35 title, and were weakened by the retirement of Alex James and the club's inability to replace him, as well as long-term injuries to several other key players such as Herbie Roberts and Joe Hulme. Nevertheless, they won a fifth League title in —38 , pipping Wolves on the final day of the season, to cap off a highly successful decade.
Soon after the outbreak of the Second World War in , all first-class football in Britain was suspended, and the —40 Football League season annulled. During the Blitz , a bomb fell on the North Bank, destroying the roof and setting fire to the scrap that was being stored on the terrace. In November , with league competition still suspended, Arsenal were one of the teams that played a Dynamo Moscow side touring the UK.
With many players still serving abroad in the armed forces, Arsenal were severely depleted and used six guest players, including Stanley Matthews and Stan Mortensen , which led Dynamo to declare they were playing an England XI,  although three of the side were actually Welsh. Though the score is generally agreed upon, after that accounts of the match diverge; even the identity of the goalscorers is disputed. The war had claimed the lives of nine Arsenal first team players, the most of any top flight club,  and the intervening time had cut short the careers of several others, including Bastin and Drake.
Additionally, the debts from the construction of Highbury and the costs of repairing war damage were a heavy financial burden, and Arsenal struggled at first when competitive football resumed in They lost 6—1 on aggregate to West Ham United in the third round of the —46 FA Cup, and upon the league's resumption in —47 the club finished 13th, their worst in 17 years. Whittaker enjoyed immediate success, winning the League title in —48 ; led by captain Joe Mercer 's strong defence and with goals from attacking front two of Reg Lewis and Ronnie Rooke , Arsenal were top of the table from October until the season's climax, winning by a seven-point margin.
The —52 season saw the club nearly win the Double, but ultimately end up empty-handed; a series of injuries and a fixture pile-up at the end of the season saw Arsenal lose their last two matches, including the title decider against eventual champions Manchester United at Old Trafford on the last day of the season;  after losing 6—1, the Gunners finished third, equal on points with Tottenham. Despite the disappointment of the previous season, Arsenal won their seventh League title in —53 ; in one of the closest title races, they beat Preston North End to the title on goal average after finishing level on points.
As the club's fortunes declined, they found themselves unable to attract many stars Welsh international goalkeeper Jack Kelsey being a notable exception , while up and coming players such as David Herd left for more successful clubs. Jack Crayston and George Swindin , both former players, followed Whittaker but could not replicate his success.
Apart from finishing third in —59 and fifth in both —56 and —57 , Arsenal usually finished in mid-table.

In , Arsenal made the bold but ultimately unsuccessful step of appointing former England and Wolves captain Billy Wright as manager, despite his lack of managerial experience and the fact he had no prior experience with the club. Like his two immediate predecessors, Wright was not very successful, although it was under his leadership that the club made their debut in European competition, in the —64 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup after finishing seventh in — Though the club's directors did not know it at the time, Mee would turn around the club and lead them to success both in Europe and at home within the next five years.
