Links: 
Arsenal

Back row: David Court, Jon Sammels, Jim Furnell, George Armstrong, Don Howe, Tommy Baldwin

Front row: Peter Storey, Ian Ure, Billy McCullough, Terry Neill, Peter Simpson

Insets: Joe Baker, George Eastham

Dating evidence for this photo includes the  absence of Frank McLintock (transferred from Leicester City in October 1964). Don Howe transferred from W.B.A. to Arsenal in April 1964.

If you look closely at this photo the three players on the right have round-necked shirts and their heads don't look right on the bodies. Did someone do a (very bad) cut and paste onto the heads of other Arsenal players. Surely not?
