The Football Association was considering a scheme for simplifying club badges
and emblems so that they more closely reflected the clubs' names. A committee
was set up to receive suggestions and, after a few weeks, the chairman called
'Gentlemen,' he said, 'our request for new club badge designs has produced
a very satisfactory response.
Most of the suggestions are perfectly straightforward and logical - an ox for
Oxford United, a sun for Sunderland, a heart for Heart of Midlothian, a windmill
and a brick wall for Millwall.
However, I'm afraid we must definitely draw the line at the proposed design
received from Arsenal!'
