It’s a bit boring being an Arsenal fan today, so I thought I would share some of my first FA cup memories of the Gunners.
I was only 7 at the time the date was 8th May 1971.. My parents hated football so as it was a warm spring day, I was lucky they decided to lay a lawn to turf.
I had the colour TV all to myself.
I can still name that team off by heart no peeping at google.
Wilson, Rice, McNab, Storey, McLintock, Simpson, Armstrong, Graham, Radford, Kennedy, George.. sub Kelly.
We all know what happened and what the score was.. I can remember jumping around the room like a nutcase and running into the garden shouting (nobody really teaches you that it must be a natural reaction), much to the disapproval of my parents.
If you ever read this Charlie… Thanks my friend..
