Greatest Games: Oldham Athletic 3 Arsenal 1, 1989

Sep 21, 2021, 02:09 AM

On today's Greatest Games, Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller are joined by Mike Keegan to remember a classic League Cup upset.

Joe Royle and Oldham Athletic's 'pinch-me season' saw the side reach the FA Cup Semi-Finals for only the 2nd time in their history, and the Final of the League Cup –  the club's first-ever appearance at Wembley. When Arsenal, the First Division champions, rocked up to Boundary Park they hadn't a clue what was about to hit them.
