Arsenal Football Club has enjoyed a storied history at the top table of English football since its founding in 1886: in fact, the Gunners remain the only club never to have been relegated from the premier division. In that time they have picked up 13 League Championships, 11 FA Cups (including three prestigious Doubles), and two European titles - scoring a wealth of goals in the process. This book, produced with full endorsement from Arsenal FC, celebrates the 50 greatest goals in the club's history. The perception of a goal's greatness is of course subjective. Is a simple tap-in that is nevertheless a culmination of 30 passes a better, or worse, goal than a 30-yard screamer? Everyone has their favourites and this book merely presents 50 of the best in a book for the first time. Featuring great goals from the likes of Liam Brady, Ian Wright, Thierry Henry and, of course Michael Thomas, this official guide sure to be on target for all Arsenal fans.
