Herbert Chapman lived here

Arsenal's legendary manager Herbert Chapman lived and died here.

Location: 6 Haslemere Avenue, Hendon, London

Description: A year after becoming Arsenal manager, Herbert Chapman moved in here in 1926. His team won the FA Cup in 1929-30, and the League Championship in 1930-1 and 1932-3. Chapman was extremely well respected by his players and had an amazing ability to spot talent.

He did everything possible to increase the profile of Arsenal, increasing spectator comfort at the Highbury grounds, and in order to attract crowds, he changed the name of the closest underground station from Gillespie Road to Arsenal in 1932.

Chapman was also a great innovator and introduced many simple but revolutionary changes - floodlighting matches, using rubber studs on boots, and numbering the players. None of these ideas were accepted as standard until after the Second World War. Chapman died on the 6 January 1934 , shortly before his 56th birthday, and was buried in the local cemetery.
