Overview

This seminal book on Arsenal FC has become one of the best-selling titles on the North London club. It examines how Arsenal became successful under the legendary Arsene Wenger and the following struggle to balance investment and development of a new stadium with the need to field a winning team on the pitch.

Described by The Observer as “fascinating” and The Guardian as “shrewd and well-informed”, respected football magazine When Saturday Comes said of Arsènal: The Making of a Modern Superclub, “at last a football book that reflects the age”. Based on unprecedented access granted to the authors, including exclusive interviews with Arsène Wenger and key Board members, current and former players, Arsènal looks in detail at the club’s transformation into a global superpower under the stewardship of their French manager rand the problems he faced to keep the team at the top table of European football.

"Alex Fynn is a football guru, and I'm always interested to hear what he has to say." Arsène Wenger
