Author: Alex Flynn & Kevin Whitcher
The transformation of 'boring, boring Arsenal' into a footballing superpower.
Based on unprecedented access granted to the authors, including exclusive interviews with Arsene Wenger, "Arsenal" looks in detail at the club's transformation into a global super-power. From 'boring, boring Arsenal' to the most exciting young team on the planet, the third richest football club in the world playing in a brand new and invariably sold-out state-of-the-art stadium - it's largely down to one man. Set during a season when the club has dazzled on the pitch and announced a turnover of GBP200 million off it, football guru Alex Fynn and "The Gooner" editor Kevin Whitcher dissect the events that led to Wenger's arrival and his 11 years at the club to reveal just how extensively his influence, from the training ground to the boardroom, has shaped the modern Arsenal.As close to Wenger as anyone outside the club, they examine his footballing philosophy, his training methods, his hopes, fears and aspirations for his team and his club - not to mention his failings - as no-one has ever done before. "Alex Fynn is a football guru, and I'm always interested to hear what he has to say." - Arsene Wenger.
