In the professional football club Royal Arsenal FC came under attack. The enemy was a coalition of the owner of the club s ground, and a small group of men who had recently lost their places on the committee that ran Royal Arsenal. The battle between the two camps raged into and saw the most outrageous acts of bribery and corruption, combined with a vicious campaign of lies and innuendo conducted in the local newspapers.
The Crowd at Woolwich Arsenal FC is a truly remarkable and unique volume, filling in a significant gap in our knowledge of the early days of football.

Simon Shakeshaft ShakeyMatchWorn. This beautiful coffee table book presents the visual history of one of the most recognisable shirts in the world of football, the legendary Arsenal shirt. Because the dream would soon turn into a nightmare as, eight months after his exploits in northern Italy, Paul would suffer the knee injury which would eventually curtail his career at the age of twenty one. Paul was on the scrapheap. Also I have only included books that were by or about Arsenal players or about Arsenal but not handbooks, annuals or fanzines.
In the transfer window , Arsenal purchased several players, including midfielders Marc Overmars and Emmanuel Petit and goalkeeper Alex Manninger ; English midfielder Paul Merson departed to join Middlesbrough. Arsenal began the league season relatively well, but a run of three defeats in four matches between November and December left the team in sixth position before Christmas, and seemingly out of championship contention.
Although they were 12 points behind reigning champions Manchester United at the end of February, a winning streak of nine matches ensured Arsenal won the championship with a 4—0 win over Everton on 3 May In the —97 season, Arsenal contested in the Premier League. Two draws and defeats in February moved Arsenal into fourth position; a previous defeat to Liverpool at home a month earlier left Wenger ruling the club out of the title race.
With my speed and quality I think it will be good for me here. Arsenal's league campaign started on 9 August , with an away fixture at Leeds United. The match ended in a 1—1 draw; Ian Wright scored his first goal of the season, before a mix up in defence meant Leeds striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink equalised for the home team. Wright scored his th goal for Arsenal against Bolton Wanderers and broke the club goalscoring record in a 4—1 win at Highbury.
It is so intelligent when he has not got the ball. Goals from Bergkamp, Wright and Overmars helped Arsenal move to the top of the league table, one point above champions Manchester United. They were awarded a penalty kick in the first half after Patrick Vieira was fouled by Lee Carsley ; Wright hit the penalty, which ricocheted off the goal crossbar.
Two goals by Paulo Wanchope and a late strike by Dean Sturridge condemned Arsenal to their first defeat of the league season. Wenger admitted in his pre-match comments that a second successive defeat would make it "difficult" for them to catch Manchester United, but not "impossible". Although Teddy Sheringham scored twice for Manchester United to level the score, midfielder David Platt headed into the far corner with seven minutes left of the match to score the winner for Arsenal.
A goal from Wright against Newcastle United , his first in seven matches, was enough to earn victory away at St James' Park.
In the first league match of , Overmars scored twice to earn Arsenal a win against Leeds United. A goal from Christopher Wreh in the rescheduled match at Wimbledon was enough to move Arsenal into second and set up a title clash between themselves and Manchester United on 14 March The return of Bergkamp from a three-match suspension helped Arsenal to trounce Blackburn Rovers; the team scored three goals in the space of the opening 14 minutes. Victory against Barnsley and four days later at home against Derby County meant Arsenal needed one more win become league champions, regardless of Manchester United's results.
Arsenal lost their final two matches of the league season, choosing to rest players for the upcoming FA Cup Final. Source: . Arsenal entered the competition in the third round, receiving a bye as a Premier League club. Their opening match was a goalless draw against First Division club Port Vale at home, meaning the game was replayed at Vale Park , eleven days later.

In the replay, Arsenal won 4—3 on a penalty shoot-out , having drawn 1—1 in extra time. Overmars scored the opening goal inside 68 seconds for the visitors and Parlour added a second to give Arsenal a commanding lead, going into the interval. Although Paul Merson scored in the second half for Middlesbrough, Arsenal did enough to progress into the fifth round.
Goals from Anelka and Bergkamp ensured victory for an understrength Arsenal team. Although Bergkamp scored a penalty to equalise, Arsenal had to settle for a replay, staged at Upton Park, where it ended 4—3 on penalties after another draw. Without first choice striker Bergkamp, Wenger partnered Anelka with Wreh, leaving Wright on the substitutes bench.
Together, with the other clubs playing in European football, Arsenal entered the Football League Cup in the third round, where they were drawn at home to First Division club Birmingham City. In recognition of the team's achievement, Wenger was awarded the Carling Manager of the Year award,  saying he was "very proud and honoured" after collecting the prize.
