Arsenal v Manchester United – FA Cup Final (1979) – Live Footage

This is a traditional FA Cup last involving the Gunners. Admittedly I wasn’t even born then (two a long time later on) but it was one particular of the traditional FA Cup Finals of all time with a amazing ending. You may recognise some faces here as well… a lot younger then they have been! I was lucky adequate to catch this game on The Match Revisited on ITV4 the other day, undoubtedly felt it was really worth a youTube upload. Anyway, check out to the finish, even if you weren’t a twinkle in your mum’s eye, this is fantastic viewing for any footy fan.

  1. It seems that Arsenal have the tradition of letting opponents score late goals…..?

  2. @Kopz2007 Lol i supose you no but incase you dont this was on a programe called if im not mastaken the big game

  3. @37puskas

    No foreigners? There’s several Republic of Ireland lads and a South African on the pitch for starters! There were quite a few non-British players in the top flight back then…though not as many as now, of course.

  4. @warpfield98 no but they compete for the community shield against the team who won the premier league

  5. @warpfield98 The FA Cup winners automatically qualify for one of three English places in the Europa League. Unless they’ve already qualified for the Champions League – so that usually means the runners-up these days. (The FA and the Premier League banned Portsmouth this season though due to their financial troubles. Otherwise Liverpool wouldn’t have been in Europe this year.)

  6. can someone tell me what happens to the winner of the FA Cup if they don’t qualify for Europe in the league. do they still go to Europe anyway?

  7. the old days you cant beat it a great final even though we lost ,dead and buried at 2-0 down got 2 back in a minute and then dracula in goals chokes and sunderland scores the winner legends all round chippy brady what a player not one foreigner on either team different days glory glory manchester united.
