Competition: Predict A Line Up

Competition: Predict A Line Up

Fancy winning a copy of the BBC's Fa Cup Final Classics?

All you have to do is correctly predict the starting line up + substitues for Arsenal's first league game at Ashburton Grove against Aston Villa.

To make your prediction, you have to follow the link to the forum (and sign up if you're not already a member) and post your guess of 11 first teamers and 5 substitues, and thats it. The deadline is Saturday 12th August.

Take into account, injuries, form in pre-season & possible new signings.

In the event of a tie, there will be a tie breaker.

The prize:-

A copy of the BBC's FA Cup Final Classics, brand new & sealed. The DVD contains the full televised action from the 1971 & 1979 FA Cup Finals.

1971

Arsenal 2 Liverpool 1

Superbly led by captain McLintock, Arsenal become only the second side to capture the elusive 'double' in the 20th Century. Heighway put Liverpool ahead just 2 minutes into extra time, but Kelly's equaliser saw weary limbs happy to play out a draw. Cue long-haired Charlie George and a strike from 20 yards that Gunners will never forget.

1979

Arsenal 3 Manchester United 2

An early goal from Talbot and a strike from Stapleton before half-time promised a second half stroll for Arsenal. Then, in a crazy last 5 minutes, United struck twice to equalise. Inspired by man of the match Liam Brady, the Gunners picked themselves up and with seconds left Alan Sunderland slid in for the winner. It is still the most remarkable finish ever seen in an FA Cup Final.
