This official guide to Arsenal, endorsed by the soccer club itself, examine's the team's 50 greatest goals Arsenal Football Club has enjoyed a storied history at the top table of English soccer 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 favorites, and this book merely presents 50 of the best, in chronological order; you can then have fun rating your own personal top 10. Many of the goals included are from the 1970s onwards when the widespread availability of color television and increased airtime for the nation's number one sport brought goals to the forefront of soccer fans' attention. But the book still offers more than a nod to the black and white era: which true Gunners' fan wouldn't rate the goal scored by George Jobey on September 6th, 1913, a header on the stroke of half-time, as great? it was the first goal scored at Arsenal's new home, Highbury (setting Woolwich Arsenal on the way to a 2-1 victory over Leicester Fosse). Since then, of course, there have been many more wonderful and significant goals, from Charlie George's 20-yard strike to win the 1971 FA Cup final, to Dennis Bergkamp's deft turn and shot against Newcastle United in 2002. And not forgetting the drama of Michael Thomas' last-gasp League-winning flick against Liverpool at Anfield in 1989. All the great strikes in Gunners history are presented here for your enjoyment. So sit back and relish the official guide to Arsenal's greatest goals.
