Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Footie Trivia of the Week!

Alright, lads - the season is winding down, but the trivia can keep rolling. Here's a topical one for this week.

"On Saturday, Arsenal became the fourth club to win consecutive FA Cup titles on more than one occasion - name the other three." (Bonus points if you can list the years they won it!)

Good luck!

Chelsea won two in a row in 09 and 10 beating Chelsea and then Pompey
Spurs won two in a row in 81 and 82 beating Man City and QPR
Spurs won two in a row in 61 and 62... beating Leicester in one of them


UNITED SHOULD HAVE WON THREE IN A ROW
Beat Chelsea 4-0 in 94, Liverpool in 96 winning 1-0
BUT a Cantona-less 95 squad lost 1-0 to Everton
STILL SHOULD OF WON

Spot on, mate. Chelsea have won the FA Cup back to back once (2009 and 2010), but only four clubs have reclaimed their titles twice.

Spurs are your first one. Back to back in 1961 and 1962 and again twenty years later in 1981 and 1982.

How about the other two?

I would think someone did it near the beginning of the Cup in the 1880s or 90s

Old Etonians
Wanderers
Blackburn
Villa

Yep - you've got the other two, mate. It is Wanderers and Blackburn. Well in!
