Having a merry month of May? Of course you are…we’ve an FA Cup final in two days time.
Now, if you fancy kicking off the weekend a bit early, why not come down to The Tollington tonight? We’ll be there from 6pm onwards to launch our new book, “Together: The Story Of Arsenal’s Unbeaten Season”.
Today , May 15th, is ten years to the very day we beat Leicester 2-1 in the final game of the 2003-04 campaign, ensuring our place in history as the only team in the modern era to go through a league season unbeaten.
To celebrate that momentous achievement we’ve put together a rather beautiful (if I do say so myself) limited edition, full colour hardback book, which takes you right through from summer 2003 until the end of that brilliant season.
There are some ups and downs along the way, and we look at everything that happened in that campaign, not just the Premier League. We’ve got all the stories and match reports, contributions from squad members Cesc Fabregas, Danny Karbassiyoon, Graham Stack, journalists Amy Lawrence and Philippe Auclair as well as supporters. There’s also exclusive behind the scenes pictures, illustrations, three of the greatest Jens Lehmann stories you will ever hear, and loads more.
The book costs £20 and comes with a free pack of illustrated postcards.
It kicks off tonight at 6pm and everyone is more than welcome. We’ll be there all evening so don’t worry if you’re a bit late, if you do make it, please come and say hello, have a couple of beers and a chat.
If you can’t make it to the launch, don’t worry, there’ll be books in The Tollington over the course of the weekend, and for those of you further afield, it’ll be on sale via the website from next week and yes, we’ll ship it anywhere in the world (the digital edition will be available next week too via iTunes, Kindle etc).
To whet your appetite, here’s a trailer featuring a snippet about a very special goal.
See you in the Tollington!
