Chas published this picture of a game against Leicester in ’71 (which I attended) and it sent me into a land of memories.
Black and White photography
Players wearing the same coloured shorts
Proper numbers – none of this 54 nonsense
Uncovered Clock End
Leather ball, and only one per game
Jon Sammels, my one time hero (playing for LCFC)
Real Arsenal shirts
No sponsorship logos
Sensible (?) hair. Not the ridiculous shaved bonces we see today
Proper cannon on the shirt
Charlie (?) on his arse
Our real home ground
Better times? No, just different.
What do you think?
