Arsenal FC - Liverpool FC - season 1970-71 -

In the finale to the 1970–71 FA Cup season, the 1971 FA Cup Final was contested by Arsenal and Liverpool at Wembley on 8 May 1971. Arsenal won 2–1 after extra time, with all three goals coming in the added half hour. Steve Heighway opened the scoring for Liverpool with a low drive past Wilson on his near post. However, Arsenal equalised with a scrambled goal from substitute Eddie Kelly – the first time a substitute had ever scored in an FA Cup final. The goal was initially credited to George Graham, but replays showed that the decisive touch came from Kelly after Graham had struck the shot.[1] Charlie George then scored a dramatic winner late in extra time, when his long range effort flew past Ray Clemence. This prompted George into a famous celebration – lying on his back on the Wembley turf waiting for his team mates to pick him up.

The first half had been achieved through Arsenal's league victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane on the Monday of the same week.

  1. excellente idée de débuter ce blog par le doublé d'Arsenal en 1971 avec le so called Beatle Charlie George qui marqua le but de la victoire des Gunners mais qui à l'image d'un Alan Hudson bourré de talent mais ingérable passa à coté d'une grande carrière internationale. On le reverra à Derby notamment pour un match de Coupe d'Europe des Clubs Champions en 1975 contre le Real Madrid au cours duquel il inscrira 3 buts qui ne suffiront pas à qualifier son équipe . Fan absolu du foot anglais et des 70s et 80s je te remercie pour ce blog qui me fait revivre mon adolescence .
