...really thought Ramsey-Wilshere, in a midfield 3, was the way forward after this game.

The European Cup Winners Cup Tournament of 1993/94 was fantastic. It was memorable run to the Final in Copenhagen. 🏟️🇩🇰 On route, we played Standard Liege, 7 - 0 away win? The Eddie McGoldrick goal scored in that game. ⚽🥅🇮🇪 The cagey game against Torino, think we won 1 - 0 on aggregate? Tony Adams scored at Highbury?
The Semi Final against Paris Saint Germain. PSG had a decent side, David Ginola, George Weah in there side.
Then onto the Final against Parma. Parma had players like Gianfranco Zola, Thomas Brolin and Faustino Asprilla. Our defence stood firm, and without Ian Wright, we won 1 - 0. Alan Smith scoring a brilliant goal, to see Arsenal win the trophy.
There were some decent sides in that Tournament. Just a shame we were not able to retain it the following season.

Remember Wrighty's tears as he picked up that suspension that would rule him out. They were a good Parma side as you say.

Arsenal 4 - Wigan Athletic 2. On this date, Arsenal played there last ever game at Highbury. Unfortunately, wasn't at the Match, sure to have been an emotional day. Things that stick out for me from that day:- The Red and the White t-shirts people wore at the ground, looked impressive. 🟥⬜🟥⬜🟥⬜ Also the image of the Next Game at Highbury sign. Whoever got that at the Auction, certainly has a piece of History.

I like how Highbury is still around in the form of Apartments. The pitch/communal gardens is a nice part.
I liked what Tottenham Hotspur did with White Hart Lane. Shame they replaced it with a New Stadium.

We were missing Henry and Campbell that day, but still not sure how we didn't play better than we did...still had a top quality team out, least the players battled hard and never gave up though.

We deserved the luck on that day, imo... especially after the way our Unbeaten run was ended by them that season.

It was the first Arsenal game I ever watched. I don't know for some reason I fell in love with the team that day

Beating United in a cup final, pretty great first game to watch!

26th May 1989.

This was the date when Arsenal went up to Anfield. Liverpool and Arsenal were both in the hunt for the First Division Championship. Arsenal needed to beat Liverpool by two clear goals.
Sure enough, Arsenal Won 2 - 0. Alan Smith scored the opening goal, then Michael Thomas scored the late, dramatic second.

Wishing former Arsenal defender Gavin Hoyte, a Very Happy Birthday. Gavin's Brother Justin, was also a defender at Arsenal. Gavin made one appearance for Arsenal, and had loan moves to Watford, Brighton, Lincoln and AFC Wimbledon. He then went onto make permanent moves to Dagenham, Gillingham, Barnet and Eastleigh. Gavin is now at Maidstone United.

On this date, the former Arsenal attacking midfielder, Liam Brady, joined the Club as an Apprentice.
Excuse my ignorance, didn't know the time that he spent playing in Italy. He played for some big clubs, Juventus, Sampdoria, and Inter Milan.

17th June 1997.

The then Arsenal Manager Arsène Wenger had been busy in the Transfer Market. He made a triple signing of Marc Overmars, Emmanuel Petit and Giles Grimandi. On the previous day, goalkeeper Alex Manninger was signed.
Could not believe we had signed Marc Overmars, a quality winger. Think he was signed for £4.5m?, a bargain. Think at the time, there was doubts over his fitness levels?
These signings were made before the start of the 1997/98 Double Winning Season.

Arsenal Quotes

When we won the league at Tottenham, they came back 2-2 in the last-minute of the game, and they're celebrating - because they're happy to draw against us, obviously. And I remember saying to Mauricio Tarricco who injured himself celebrating in front of me: "Do you realise we only need a point to be Champions?" And he was utterly shocked. So I said "Yes. Now watch as we're going to celebrate on your pitch. Bye bye!"
