9 May on thie day...

1971: ARSENAL celebrated the Double with a homecoming parade through Islington. At the front of the bus (left) Bob Wilson and John Radford hold the league championship trophy, while Brendan Batson and skipper Frank McLintock lift the FA Cup. Arsenal completed the double with a 2-1 extra-time FA Cup win over Liverpool after earlier clinching the title with a 1-0 defeat of Tottenham. Only Spurs had achieved the Double (1960-61) before Arsenal; now there have been 11.
