Arsenal FC is the longest-serving club in the top flight of the professional English Football League, and in its 120-year history has proven itself to be an enduring force with a huge fanbase and many titles and accolades to its credit. From its humble beginnings in 1886 in a field in Woolwich, to the dizzying heights of the new Emirates stadium and the glamour and wealth of Premiership football, the club is steeped in history and its astounding record speaks for itself: 13 League Championships, 10 FA Cups, two League Cups and both the European Cup Winners' and UEFA Cups. The Gunners have also completed 'the double' on three historic occasions. Carrying them to such successes have been some of the game's greatest ever players - Cliff Bastin, Charlie George, Pat Rice, Frank McLintock, to the modern icons like Tony Adams, Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. Guiding them from the touchline has been a formidable line-up of managers - including Herbert Chapman, Bertie Mee, George Graham and Arsene Wenger. "Arsenal: The Football Facts" provides an essential reference handbook chock-full of facts and statistics on players, managers and seasons, club history, famous match reports, greatest ever goals and fascinating insider trivia that will satisfy every Gunners fan's curiosity about their favourite club.
