When Arsene Wenger said he wanted his team to go through a season
undefeated, he was roundly mocked, yet just over 12 months later the
Arsenal manager guided his team to footballing immortality.

The Gunners’ 2003-2004 campaign was extraordinary, and not just because of their remarkable league achievement.

From the highs and lows of Europe, to disciplinary
charges, pitched battles, the frantic scramble to finance a new stadium,
a club record transfer deal in January, and winning the title at the
ground of the old enemy, this special collector’s edition book looks
back on everything that happened during an unforgettable campaign.

Match reports, behind the scenes stories, exclusive
interviews and illustrations, stats, tactics, pictures; all the things
you know, and lots of stuff you’ve forgotten. Together: tells the story
of Arsenal’s ‘unbeaten’ season.

Invincible by Amy Lawrence: 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

2014 Writer of the Year, Football Supporters' Federation

'This book is so full of exclusive interviews you'll soon feel like part of the squad. A worthy tribute to one of English football's best ever teams, it makes you long for one more game at Highbury' Shortlist

'Unbeatable insight'
Henry Winter, Daily Telegraph

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 football, 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. Football 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.

Published in time for the 10-year anniversary, 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 football fans everywhere who enjoy classic sports books such as The Damned United.

Amy Lawrence has watched football avidly since her first trip to Highbury at the age of six, and has written about it, mostly for the Guardian and the Observer, for twenty years. She lives in London.
