Bernard Joy may not be at the top of the average Arsenal fans list of great players but he will be remembered for at least two things:
1. He was the last amateur footballer to play for England;
2. He was the first person to write a complete history of Arsenal FC.
This book was written at Arsenal's request and with the Club's full support which gave Joy full access to all the records and archive material. As such, when reading his words your find alot of information that you may have read elsewhere. Why? Because most Arsenal histories since have picked the bones out of Joy's book. There are many other snippets that you won't have read elsewhere and whilst the book ends in 1953 it does cover the 67-year history extremey well.
For those wanting to know a little more about Arsenal's origins and early history this book is worth buying.

As a fan of classic Arsenal books I was pleased to see this particular title back in print. Brian Glanville, the grandfather of football literature already had Cliff Bastin Remembers under his belt when he wrote this quasi history of Arsenal Football Club 60 plus years ago when he was still in his early twenties!!
I found that the book uncovered a number of interesting facts and corrected one or two others that had been falsely recorded elsewhere. It looks at the club through the characters and individuals that helped to create and mould it and it's an enjoyable read.
If you're looking for something to fill the long winter nights or hunting for a gift for an Arsenal-supporting friend or relative then look no further. This book is worth a punt.
