From the club's humble beginnings in 1886 through to the move to the magnificent Emirates' Stadium, the Club has been at the forefront of innovation and entertainment. Every key player and manager is profiled including luminaries of the game like Chapman, Bastin, McLintlock, Brady, Wright, Bergkamp, Wenger and Henry. Certain Arsenal games have become part of Football folklore such as the incredible Championship winning performance at Anfield in '89. Lavishly illustrated and with over 500 entries, this is the first point of reference for any true Gunner.
This is the first attempt to tell the story of the 121-year-history of the Arsenal Football Club through the greatest and most iconic Arsenal photography ever published. From the earliest days at Woolwich and Plumstead, through the heady highs of Herbert Chapman and George Allison, to the colourful 1980s and the successful Arsene Wenger era, these images capture the emotions, stories, faces, fans and day-to-day existence of this incredible Club. Rarely seen photography provides an alternative view of many of the key events in the Club's history and shows you sides of the Club that you never knew existed.
