Jim Furnell better than Lev Yashin?

Can somebody with a very long memory help me out with the lyrics of a song that used get aired at Highbury during the mid 60s about our then goal keeper Jim Furnell being better than the Soviet goalkeeper of the era (Lev Yashin)? I'm sure Yashin was used to rhyme with a line about Spurs getting a th...

Re: Ali

I remember reading Henry Cooper complaining about shenanigans going on in Clay's corner when he was knocked down at Wembley.

And he did it at Highbury! :barscarf:
My memory maybe fading but I'm fairly certain Cooper didn't floor Ali at Highbury in '66. I could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time!

Re: John Jensen - your memories

I remember the day he scored against QPR was either a New Years Eve or New Years Day, either way I was so pissed I struggled to find my way home that night.

Re: Arsenal Academy

I was looking through some of my old programmes the other day and noticed I had seen loads of our old youth players play in the Ryman Premier League (and below) in recent years! Off the top of my head: Nigel Nieta - Metropolitan Police George Brislan Hall - Enfield Town Jordan Fowler - Wingate &...

For an academic paper, a book, or because you are fed up with watching "Big Brother'?

Re: 1965/66 Season

1965/66 Season

I am researching the 1965/66 season and wondered if anybody had any memories / stories no matter how small on that season? Just for a memory jogger Arsenal had a poor season in what happened to be Billy Wright's last as manager with Joe Baker and George Eastham leaving the club and Don Howe breaking...
