What would that technical sense be?

It was Woolwich Arsenal Football club which was relegated; not Arsenal F.C.

:rolleyes:
It's the same club, a name alteration doesn't change that. Ditto Man U, Man City, Bournemouth, Brighton, Everton, Burnley, Leicester, Newcastle, Southampton, Tottenham, Watford, West Ham and the Wolves.

You are wrong. It is a different club, by definition. Hard to accept you are wrong but can't change facts.

And Bristol City (1982) as opposed to Bristol City :lol: miraculously having the same squad of players, home stadium and all the rest of it but apparently a different club. :rolleyes:

What technical issue made them different entities?

Like I said, happy to be corrected, especially when sources are given.

And though Companies House claims not to verify information, I'm pretty sure they'd be on the case if the paperwork for a company was wrong.

Well regardless of whether you are called Arsenal FC or Woolwich Arsenal that really isn't good enough from a big team at home - Citeh very poor but won easily. The Foden goal was assuredly offside though and how you can risk 2 walking red cards like Ceballos and Gabriel in the same team amazes me.

another semi final so very happy
