GUNNERS YEARS: Charlie George on target but Jennings blunders
1971: Arsenal move into the quarter finals of the European Cup for the first time with a 3-0 home win over Grasshoppers Zurich, Ray Kennedy, Charlie George and Jon Radford scoring the goals. The Gunners go through 5-0 on aggregate after a 2-0 win in Switz
Arsenal move into the quarter finals of the European Cup for the first time with a 3-0 home win over Grasshoppers Zurich, Ray Kennedy, Charlie George and Jon Radford scoring the goals. The Gunners go through 5-0 on aggregate after a 2-0 win in Switzerland two weeks previously.
Arsenal manager Don Howe claimed his side's football was "different class" - despite losing 3-2 at second division leaders Oxford in the Milk Cup.

The Gunners, currently top of the Canon League Division One, went out when Pat Jennings attempted to catch Irish full-back Dave Langan's speculative 35-yard effort with one hand, only to palm it into the top corner.
Howe admitted afterwards the 39-year-old was forced to play with a bruised thumb. Oxford boss Jim Smith added: "For the first hour they (Arsenal) were on a different planet - but our determination got us through."

Jim Smith enjoys another good day against the Gunners, this time as Derby manager, as Paolo Wanchope scored twice - after Ian Wright missed a first half penalty - as Arsenal's unbeaten league start to the season ended at Pride Park.
Dean Sturridge hit the third eight minutes from the end as the visitors, missing the suspended Dennis Bergkamp, struggled.
"The missed penalty was important as I thought the first goal would be critical. (After that) we could not copy with the speed of their attacks," admitted Arsene Wenger afterwards.
Arsene Wenger considers legal action against Jose Mourinho after the Chelsea boss called him a "voyeur" with "a sickness".
Mourinho has offered to apologise - as long as Wenger does the same for apparently criticising Chelsea's style.
Wenger, however, is sticking to his guns: "First, I don't see what I have to apologise for and, second, I will reflect on the situation and see what kind of action I will take.
"At some stage you have to be firm. It was a personal attack. I don't know why he did it.
