Description

Many football books claim to take the reader into the inner sanctum but fail to live up to the promise. THE GLORIOUS GAME, however, is based on exclusive interviews with the key individuals at Arsenal, most notably Arsene Wenger. Alex Fynn and Kevin Whitcher draw upon the exclusive access behind the scenes at Highbury to piece together an intimate portrait of both Wenger and the club. THE GLORIOUS GAME looks back to Arsene Wenger's arrival at the club, studies his philosophy of football, examines Arsenal's underachievement in Europe and their continuing battle for English supremacy with Manchester United. THE GLORIOUS GAME is an insightful and assured piece of sports writing, and compulsive reading for any Arsenal fan.show more

Review quote

'The Strength of both the original book and this revised version is its interviews with key personnel: VIce chairman David Dein, Arsene Wenger and many of the players. Jens Lehmann, Kolo Toure, Gilberton Silva and Thierry Henry are immensely perceptive on what it means to play for the Gunners, the methodology of the manager and the need to press on for the ultimate prize, the Champions' League title.'
