Episode notes

Gary, Rob and Mike are back to discuss the transformation of Arsenal during Arsène Wenger’s first full season. We take an in-depth look at two Premier League classics, as Arsenal chin Manchester United home and away. The latter of those at Old Trafford was part of one of the most Homeric runs in English football history, as Arsenal went unbeaten from Boxing Day 1997 until 3 May 1998 to rip the league title away from Alex Ferguson’s seemingly unassailable team. We look at how a futuristic and frighteningly quick attack was grafted onto George Graham’s legendary back five, creating a hybrid that swept all before it and completed the second Double in Arsenal’s history.
