The book that every Arsenal fan must have is back with a revised edition packed with a wealth of new features. This updated edition of last year's best-selling The Pocket Book of Arsenal features a brand new cover design and is bursting with the colourful history of London's biggest club.
Learn about the Gunners’ glorious history, from the very first team back in 1886, to the 1971 Double winners, to the Invincibles of 2003/04. Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 1970 Fairs Cup victory over Anderlecht or the title-winning trip to Anfield in 1989. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it Mercer and McLintock, Bergkamp and Brady, or current heroes Fabregas and Walcott.
Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Arsenal memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget Ian Wright’s solo effort against Everton in 1993?), legendary managers and tactics of the club’s most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years – yes, that includes the infamous 1991 ‘tractor tyre’ design.
On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of the Emirates Stadium, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite George Graham.
