A gripping insider's account of how Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira, and Pires became the first team in 100 years to go the entire season undefeated. In 2003-04, a team that played with lightning speed and lustrous skill fulfilled Wenger's lifelong dream—to go a whole season unbeaten. They pushed and inspired each other, bringing the best out of strong characters like Jens Lehmann, a self-styled "Mad German;" Sol Campbell, an intense competitor; Robert Pirès, an instant friend if you give him a soccer ball; Patrick Vieira, a soft-spoken, battle-hardened captain; Gilberto, a thoughtful Brazilian; Thierry Henry, a supremely gifted and obsessed scorer and creator; and Dennis Bergkamp, the perfectionist conductor. Based on exclusive player interviews, and with a foreword and afterword by Arsene Wenger, this definitive book allows the Invincibles to tell their own story. Soccer writer Amy Lawrence weaves together the team's recollections, and the testimonies of other key players and protagonists around the club, to relive the pivotal games and moments. From the battle of Old Trafford to jubilation at White Hart Lane, from training ground sparks to dressing room revelations, readers will go behind closed doors, onto the pitch, and into the players' minds to understand the teamwork and the psychology to go unbeaten. This is a must-have read for any Arsenal fan. It will be enjoyed by readers of memoirs by Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams, and will also appeal to soccer fans everywhere who enjoy classic sports books such as The Damned United.
