The true story of Magic Lamp.
Herbert Chapman, Huddersfield's most successful manager who was later lured to Arsenal and defined Arsenal as the most successful team of the 1930's. And probably one of the greatest managers of all time.
In 1922 Chapman took the team to the final night of the Aladdin Pantomime at the local theatre. After the performance the players were invited backstage to meet the cast. As a memento the players were given the Magic Lamp prop used throughout the production for luck. With the FA Cup looming all the players took to rubbing the Lamp in the dressing room before each Cup match. Football history was made as Huddersfield recorded their one and only FA Cup win in 1922.
Herbert Chapman won two First Division Titles at Huddersfield, before even greater success came at Arsenal. Mr Football himself.
