Description

Kicking off with the story of the original 'soccer czar', Sir Henry Norris, who bulldozed through opposition on many levels to move Woolwich Arsenal to north London (and probably taught many subsequent chairman everything they knew on that score), Jon Spurling's all-encompassing history of Arsenal's time at Highbury features testimony from everyone: from the peanut sellers, turnstile operators, local publicans and fans, through to the likes of Bob Wilson, Liam Brady, George Graham and Lee Dixon. This is a warts-and-all look at the last century in the club's history, telling the story of local opposition to the club's move (1913), through the construction of the impressive art deco East and West stands in the thirties, the assembling of the various title-winning sides and culminating in the story of local opposition to the club's move (2004). Having written three previous titles on Arsenal's history, Jon Spurling is well placed to produce this definitive volume.
