085 – 1971 and Bertie’s Arsenal Win the Double

Today some scans of press photo’s from the 1971 double. Strangely none have backslips but I think they’re pretty self explanatory.

084 – Inside the Gunners 1971

In the days when player’s wages seemed far more realistic it was common for the players of teams getting to the Cup Final to issue something to earn them a bit more money. To put it into context Bob Wilson told me he earned around £17,000 for the double season, although he did point out he bought a house for £26,500 around then.

In 1971 the players got some extra from a booklet called ‘Inside the Gunners’, and today’s scans are some of the pages from that booklet, including a player’s wives and girlfriends page.
