ARSENAL

The Wenger Years

This would be emphatically delivered in the form of a relatively unknown Frenchman who would change the Club forever. Arsene Wenger arrived at Highbury in October 1996 after notable success at Monaco and a stint in charge of Japanese side Grampus Eight. He was the Club`s first boss from outside the UK

Arsenal finshed third that season but the new managerwould officially annnounce his arrival in his first campaign at the helm. at one stage in 1997/98 the Gunners trailed leders Manchester United by 11 points. However, imperious from throughout the second half of the campaign saw Arsenal crowned Premier League champions with two games to spare. within two weeks, the Gunners ha dadded the FA cup, securing the double in Wenger`s first full season in Charge.


"As well as transforming Arsenal on the pith,

the new manager set revolutionisning his players` lives away from the pitch,

implementing cutting-edge training regimes and dietary system."

Despite lifting the FA cup once more in 2002/03, back-to-back titles would again elude the Gunners. But they made up for that disappointment in the season that followed, completing an unbeaten title campaign and going on it yo eclips Nottingham Forest`s long-standing run of League games without defeat. Played 49, won 36, Drawn 13, Lost None - that Arsenal side was truly Invincible'🏃
