Overview

"This is a beautifully-produced book forensically recounting the Wenger years using a nice mix of graphics and anecdotes. One for any Arsenal fan." Arsenal legend Alan Smith.

"If you eat caviar every day, it's difficult to return to sausages." Arsène Wenger, November 1998.

Caviar and Sausages takes football fans from Arsène Who? in 1996 to Wenger Out in 2018 - a revolutionary era for Arsenal Football Club and English football. Tony Kokkinos uniquely breaks down Arsène Wenger's 22 years into three stages - the Glory Years, the Austerity Years and the Stagnating Years.

Unique colourful infographics dissect the key aspects of a revolutionary era including:

  • Battle Royale - the epic rivalry with Man Utd.
  • Breaking Up The Band - how the Invincibles broke up prematurely.
  • Wenger's Beefs - with Alex Ferguson and José Mourinho.
  • Signings - the Good, the Bad, the Strange.
  • The Curious Case of Theo Walcott.

The book is both a narrative and visual analysis of the Caviar (the Invincibles, two Doubles, seven FA Cups, Wengerball) and the Sausages (Man Utd 8 Arsenal 2, a nine-year trophy drought, three 5-1 hammerings by Bayern Munich). Original infographics, pitch maps and detailed season reviews dissect the players, tactics, transfers and decisions behind the trophies and painful losses. Informative, amusing and bizarre footnotes feature revealing statistics, tasers and Malaysian betting scams.

Caviar and Sausages is a must-read for supporters who witnessed some of the best football and players the English game has ever seen or are discovering Arsenal's most iconic era for the first time.
