Arsenal 5-0 Aston Villa 1990-91 (David Platt goes in goal)

  • Published on Oct 10, 2010
  • Arsenal were two points ahead of Liverpool at the top of the First Division table and with a game in hand on the Reds as they welcomed struggling Aston Villa to Highbury in April 1991. Villa's task was daunting - the Gunners had only lost two games all season in all competitions (although they would soon lose a third to Tottenham in the FA Cup). Brian Moore is the commentator.

    See Platt handing back another jersey? He was given an Arsenal keeper's shirt without realizing, and put it on at which point we all sang "You'll never play for Arsenal"...

    Gawd I remember this. Loved Platt with England and then Arsenal. Why did he go in goal, did he have any experience, I can't remember?

      he was the captain, they were 4=0 down with no chance, has to be someone with a bit of confidence..

    wrong. studs down by campbell and was clearly an honest challenge for a bouncing pass he may have volleyed

    I know it was moot by that point, but Campbell should've been sent off for that challenge on the goalkeeper.

      Never. A legitimate challenge for a fifty fifty ball.

    Great David Platt. Played for the Arsenal 1998 Double year. Got a great header against ManU.

    You don't often see lobbing headers. But then, there's only one Alan Smith.
    Okay, there are a few Alan Smiths, but Arsenal's was the only one worth a damn.

    @HexenDSK That's right. When Platt went in goal he was first given an Arsenal keeper's top to wear as Villa didn't seem to have a spare!!!

    Wow, I miss the North Bank!

    • Fiachra

      yeah, he did get an Arsenal keeper's shirt without realizing, and put it on at which point we all sang "You'll never play for Arsenal"...
