Postby SE13 » Thu Dec 04, 2008 8:37 pm

Double winners on three occasions, 71, 98, 02

League Cup runners up in 68 and 69, UEFA Cup winners in 70. Also beaten in the 72, 78 and 80 Cup Finals. 8 finals in 12 years, or make that 9 in 13 with the defeat in The Cup Winners Cup in 80, the last game "Chippy" Brady would play, and signed out with a penalty miss :(

The trophy won by Arsenal in 1970 was then called the European Fairs Cup not the EUFA Cup.

You are both right. In the words of SE13 "It was just called the European Fairs Cup in those days, which would be the correct answer, but people older than me would call it the "Inter-City Fairs Cup" ... :P

Sorry the real gooner! That's twice today members have been an inch off beating Roger!

Well done Roger,.......again! lol

Thanks Trina, I had it wrong at first. For 68 I was thinking of the FA Cup not the League Cup then I wasn't sure of the year in the 40s when we won the League.
