From the publisher:
In 2004, Arsène Wenger’s Arsenal achieved footballing immortality after going through an entire season unbeaten. That team will forever be known as ‘The Invincibles’, but 13 years beforehand, there was another Arsenal side who should have achieved that accolade first. George Graham’s title winning squad of 1990/91 lost just one game in an amazing season – having to overcome some unbelievable set-backs in order to win the Championship.
The team’s inspirational captain, Tony Adams, was sent to prison, a more rigorous fixture schedule, a mid-match brawl that led to the only points deduction to have ever been given to a club – before or since – are just some of the crazy circumstances that the Arsenal team of 90/91 had to overcome.
This thirtieth anniversary edition book will take you through every facet of that incredible season, from the new signings, the pre-season build up and in-depth league and cup match coverage combine to show why the Class of ‘91 should stand shoulder to shoulder with The Invincibles – and why they should perhaps be considered equals.
Newspaper excerpts, interviews with squad legends including; Alan Smith, David Seaman, Lee Dixon, David Hillier, Kevin Campbell and Nigel Winterburn – a look behind the scenes with Arsenal’s goalkeeping icon, Bob Wilson, plus some fantastic insights from respected newspaper journalist, Amy Lawrence, provide the most comprehensive insight into the Gunners’ ‘Almost Invincible’ title-winning campaign.
