Alan Sunderland - Signed photo
This black and white photo measures 12cm x 17cm approximately and is in good condition. A great item of Arsenal memorabilia.
The great item of signed Arsenal memorabilia is a black and white photo of Alan Sunderland in action, which he has personally signed in blue pen. Sunderland joined Arsenal in November 1977, for £220,000; initially a midfielder, he switched position to centre forward and became a regular, playing in the 1978 FA Cup Final, which Arsenal lost to Ipswich Town. Sunderland's most famous moment came in the 1979 FA Cup Final; Arsenal had gone 2–0 up against Manchester United, with goals from Brian Talbot and Frank Stapleton, and looked set for victory with only five minutes remaining. However, United scored twice in three minutes, with goals from Gordon McQueen and Sammy McIlroy, and extra time loomed. In the very last minute of the match, Arsenal pushed forward in a desperate counter-attack. Liam Brady fed Graham Rix on the left wing, and his cross was converted by Sunderland at the far post to make the score 3–2, and win Arsenal the cup.
