Top five moments in Arsenal’s footballing history
Having faced hard times in recent years by going eight years without winning a single cup, Arsenal have still had some great moments that fans and players alike will always treasure. Outlined below are the top five most memorable and greatest moments in Arsenal history.
This was one of the most remarkable periods in Arsenal’s history, and it occurred between May 2003 and October 2004. They became the first team to finish the season unbeaten since Preston North End. They played 49 games, won 36 of them, drew 13 and lost absolutely zero games.
This was also the time that Arsenal broke Nottingham Forest’s 42 game unbeaten record by creating the 49 game unbeaten record of their own.
Their first win of this lucky season came when they beat Southampton 6-1. They came close to losing their winning streak when they went to Old Trafford to face Manchester United, but luck was on their side because Ruud Van Nistelrooy smashed a penalty against the bar and the tension-filled match ended in a goalless draw.
That season, they won the title at White Hart Lane and simply avoided defeat in the rest of their matches.
