Product Description

Book Description

The definitive history of Arsenal's time at Highbury - 'Sporting history at its best' Telegraph

Product Description

After several years of sitting in Highbury's local pubs and cafés with a Dictaphone, Jon Spurling has pooled hours of interviews with fans, programme sellers, local publicans and even those who dug the foundations of the Laundry End (and later cleared rubbish from its terraces) to meticulously construct the biography of the ground and chart the ups and downs of one of England's greatest league clubs.

Spurling has also spoken to numerous players: the late greats of yesteryear (Ted Drake, George Male and Reg Lewis), as well as legends of a more recent vintage - from Bob Wilson, Charlie George and Malcolm MacDonald to Anders Limpar and various legends of the Wenger era, including Patrick Vieira. Written in the year that Arsenal moved to the Emirates, Jon Spurling has produced the definitive account of the club's 93 years at Highbury.

5.0 out of 5 stars History broken down by those who witnessed it. 7 July 2008
I've never been inside Highbury, and am unlikely to do so now, but just visiting the area gives you a feel that there is an interesting story to be told. And, for me, here it is in spades. Spurling is an excellent writer, fans of When Saturday Comes and the Fanzine movement will love his writing style. Plenty of humour, never shirking from the slightly uglier sides to football history, this is a fantastic book which was very hard to put down. As a non Arsenal fan this was an ideal sized introduction to the Gunners thus far, and has certainly left me looking forward to his other football, Arsenal in particular, publications. Many so-called stars give their honest opinions alongside many (150+) ordinary fans. Everyone involved with Arsenal seems to have been spoken to. Will read again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for the Arsenal faithful 5 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my father after he'd read 'Rebels for the Cause', which is by the same Author, and he is loving it. The writer is a true great. Really goes into detail about the history of the club, and includes a great fans perspective which my dad can relate to from going to watch Arsenal a lot when he was my age (17). I've also now read it and just think it's great. A great book for an adoring Arsenal fan.
