From the publisher:
Arsenal On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the club's distinguished past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable diary of red-and-white history - with an entry for every day of the year. From the club's Victorian roots playing in donated shirts right up to the Emirates era, Gunners fans have witnessed league, cup and Double triumphs, hard-fought derbies and unforgettable European nights - all featured here. All-time greats including Thierry Henry and George Armstrong, Liam Brady, Charlie George and Eddie Hapgood loom larger than life - while their team-mates bare their buttocks before the North Bank, score solo pop hits and win Olympic gold medals.
Find out which legend debuted on the day George Graham was born; the day which links Bertie Mee and Arsene Wenger; and which Arsenal manager was sacked on Friday the 13th.
