Description

A celebration of Arsene Wenger's legendary time with Arsenal, their greatest period of success This lavishly illustrated book tells the story of Arsenal under Arsene Wenger with profiles of the matches and the players who have led Arsenal to their greatest period of success. Two years after Wenger joined, the club completed a League and FA Cup double. He led Arsenal to appearances in the 2000 UEFA Cup Final and 2001 FA Cup Final, and a second League and Cup double in 2002. Arsenal retained the FA Cup in 2003 and a year later regained the League title, becoming the first club to go through an entire league season undefeated since Preston North End, 115 years previously. The team later eclipsed Nottingham Forest's record of 42 league matches unbeaten and went seven more matches before losing in October 2004. Arsenal made their first appearance in a Champions League final in 2006, though they lost to Barcelona. During his tenure, Arsenal relocated to the Emirates Stadium in August 2006, after 93 years at Highbury. In March 2014, Wenger became only the fourth manager in English football to oversee 1,000 matches with a single club, after George Ramsay (Aston Villa), Dario Gradi (Crewe Alexandra), and Alex Ferguson (Manchester United) and he is the longest serving manager of any Premier League club.
