Ex Arsenal Player John Roberts dies aged 69

Sad news to hear about John Roberts death. John was part of the Arsenal team the year they did the double winning the league and FA Cup in  1970/1. Although I was only six at the time I still have a great memories of that game and got me thinking how many of the players in the team could I name.

My attempt without Googling is below. How many can you get without looking.


Here was my attempt without Googling:

  1. Bob Wilson
  2. Pat Rice
  3. Bob McNab
  4. Eddie Kelly
  5. Frank Mclintock
  6. Peter Story
  7. George Armstrong
  8. Alan Ball
  9. Charlie George
  10. ?
  11. George Graham

I don’t think I did too bad!

Here’s a link to actual team.
