    TRANSCRIPT: "In London, last season's great rivals, Arsenal and Leeds United, met at Highbury, and once again it was to be Arsenal's day, with John Radford, Arsenal's number 9 having a particularly good day. Bad luck for Radford there but ten minutes before the interval. Arsenal went into the lead with a good goal by George Graham. Harvey in the Leeds goal was given no chance by Graham, one nil to Arsenal at half time. In the second half, Arsenal went further ahead when Kennedy was brought down and the referee had no hesitation at all in awarding a penalty. Peter Storey took the kick. Again Harvey had no chance and the result Arsenal 2 Leeds 0."
