Kamikaze Defending Brings The FA Cup Back To Arsenal On This Day, 12th May 1979

With Pat Rice’s retirement announced this week, it is fitting that the one trophy he lifted as Arsenal captain be remembered today. A routine victory with goals from Talbot and Stapleton seemed to be erasing the memories of twelve months earlier. Footballing anarchy set in but at the end of it, Arsenal emerged victorious.

  1. I missed this one but was at the previous and the next! Of course we lost both those.

    I was in India for this one, listening to a borrowed radio, from a shop, with my girlfriend and a manu supporter in Connaught Circus in Delhi with monkeys tugging at my leg.

    All together, a very memorable occasion.
