THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

22 November ~ Arsenal host Manchester United this evening and both teams will be slightly disappointed with their starts to the season, lying in sixth and seventh respectively. In August 1970 the two clubs met at Highbury early in the season, with a 4-0 win for the home side moving them up to third, while United remained second-bottom. John Radford scored a hat-trick (he achieved his highest goal tally that season, 21) while future Arsenal manager George Graham got the fourth. Arsenal remained unbeaten at home all season as they won the title by one point from Leeds, their first since 1953. United, whose team contained Nobby Stiles, George Best, Bobby Charlton and Denis Law, finished eighth.
