ARSENAL 0-0 QPR
January 3, 1994
Today's FreezeFrame takes us back to January 1994.
This was the season when "One-nil to the Arsenal" became a terrace favourite, a chant spawned from the Gunners' exploits in Europe and sung to the tune of the Village People 'classic', "Go West".
Unfortunately, on this cold winter's day, Arsenal only got half of the equation right.
True to form, the famous Back Four kept a clean sheet. But Ian Wright - so often responsible for the 'One' in that famous scoreline, could not find a way past a stubborn QPR defence and a midfield that included Ray Wilkins and Trevor Sinclair.
As it turned out, the 1993/94 was a campaign full of draws. The team notched up 17 stalemates in their 42 league matches and set a Club record of five consecutive draws in the Premier League.
That run started against QPR.
Dropping two points so often obviously wasn't conducive to a title challenge and Arsenal eventually finished fourth, a distant 21 points behind champions Manchester United, while QPR were ninth.
Europe provided salvation in the shape of the Cup Winners' Cup as Parma were beaten 1-0 in the Copenhagen final.
And when all is said and done, that's what Arsenal fans will remember 1994 for - and not this drab draw against our next opponents.
Arsenal team: Seaman, Dixon, Bould, Adams, Winterburn, Hillier, Jensen (Keown, 71), Parlour, McGoldrick, Wright Campbell. Subs not used: Miller, Merson.
