silly gooners

What Arsenal players did next ...

Arsenal full-back Dennis Evans heard a whistle during the game at Highbury on 17th December 1955 against Blackpool and thinking the game was over, he knocked the ball into the back of his own goal only to find the referee pointing to the centre circle indicating a goal to the Seasiders.
The whistle had come from the crowd and unbeknown to Evans, the game was still in progress !!
