097 – The Agony, the Ecstasy…and the Agony (part three)

Final part of our journey through Terry Neill’s cup finals. The first picture is undated but is the original from a photo used on page 5 of David O’Leary’s testimonial programme.

“Arsenal Come Back. April 24th 1980.
Luton Airport, Thursday.
Arsenal goal scorer Paul Vaessen arriving back from his team’s Cup-winners Cup success last night, is confronted with autograph hunters at Luton Airport today.
The final score in Turin was Juventus 0 – Arsenal 1.



“Winners rejoice. May 1st 1980.
Brian Talbot (centre right), arms raised in jubilation, exclaims his victory after scoring Arsenal’s 12th-minute lead over Liverpool in tonight’s third replay of the FA cup Semi-Final game at Highfield Road, Coventry.
Liverpool defender Phil Neal is seen (centre of picture) on Talbot’s left, and their goalkeeper Ray Clemence prostrate in his net.”

  1. Sadly missed the WHU final, had to sell ticket to get one for Brussels. Greater good and all that. Went to so many games that season, I think we played 70 games? Good stuff.. Keep up good work.
