I lived just round the corner from Highbury in the early 70s. Could pay my entrance fee at the great North Bank turnstiles. Loved watching Charlie the king of Highbury play.

I am a Liverpool supporter and I will never forget C.G's extra time winner in the 71 F.A.Cup final. I was in the Royal Navy at the time and we were all watching on our ship (HMS Blake) in Portsmouth, Liverpool and Arsenal lads. I love Liverpool, but I love football too, and I always appreciate and respect talented players and teams, Arsenal were to me a great team and Charlie George a great player who delighted true football fans everywhere.

Come from a small village in Leicestershire, my brother got a colour tv! Not many around in 1971! Me and my dad watched the Arsenal v Liverpool final in colour, amazing! I have a signed picture Charlie laying on is back when he scored THAT winning goal. Found pictures in a antique shop got it framed. ????Àú?†
Loved Charlie. My idol. I stood on Highbury North Bank and was behind that goal at Wembley when he scored that great goal. Great player. Followed him through all the seasons at Highbury. I have done the legends tour with him at the Emirates and he was very nice person. Signed all my programmes for me - both finals and the Fairs Cup programme. I was there that night when we won it. Fantastic team.
I was 11 years old when the 1971 cup final took place. All though the match my eyes were glued to this gorgeous looking Arsenal player. From then on I lived and breathed football. Charlie was my hero for most of my teenage years. All my mates had pop stars over their bedroom walls but for me, it was Charlie George
