The Glorious Game Summary

The Glorious Game: Arsene Wenger, Arsenal and the Quest for Success by Alex Fynn

Arsenal may have overcome Southampton 1-0 to retain the FA Cup, and, as Arsene Wenger claimed, had the best team in the Premiership, but the 2002-03 season will go down in memory as one largely unfulfilled by their own high standards. Alex Fynn and Kevin Whitcher draw upon times spent behind the scenes at Highbury to piece together an intimate portrait of both the man at the helm, Wenger, and life at the only Premiership club in with a shout of challenging the Old Trafford hegemony. 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 long-term financial implications of the Ashburton Grove move, and the place of the youth academy in Wenger's long-term strategy are also discussed. Featuring interviews with, and profiles of, the key individuals at Highbury -- from Wenger and David Dein, through to the likes of Thierry Henry, Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Liam Brady and Bob Wilson -- The Glorious Game is an insightful and assured piece of sports writing, and compulsive reading for any Arsenal fan.
