History

Leeds United won the FA Cup on the 100th anniversary of the competition. Two days later they visited Wolverhampton Wanderers needing a draw to win the League and become only the fifth club to complete the double. They lost 1-2. On the same night, Liverpool needed to win at Arsenal to become Champions. They drew 0-0 after having a goal disallowed two minutes from the end. Derby County (whose players had gone on holiday expecting to be caught) became League Champions.

Arsenal reached their second successive FA Cup final with no home draws in either season.

The Fairs Cup was renamed as the UEFA Cup. This was the first time a European final was between two English clubs. Tottenham Hotspur beat Wolverhampton Wanderers in the two legged UEFA Cup final to become the first English club to win two different European trophies.

Stoke City (founder member of the League) won the League Cup, their first (and only) trophy.

History (Europe)

The Dutch club Ajax became the second club in Europe to win the Treble of national League and Cup and the European Cup.
