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.

His career has gone from strength to strength ever since and he is now the team's captain and its lynchpin. Liverpool's incredible comeback in the Champions' League final in Istanbul in May 2005, recovering from a 3-goal deficit against AC Milan to win on penalties, is testament to the amazing power Gerrard has over his team. His presence on the pitch is a force to be reckoned with and places him amongst the very first rank of players in the world.
A relatively private figure, Steven has rarely spoken out in public. Now, his legions of fans will be allowed an intimate glimpse of what makes their hero tick. He speaks for the first time about the torturous will-he-won't-he Chelsea rumours and his undying passion for Liverpool. We experience first-hand the highs of winning in Istanbul and elsewhere, as well as the occasional lows of being parted from his much-loved family and friends. And of course, the book contains a full blow-by-blow account of England's world cup campaign in Germany 2006.
