Alle ved, at vi i 1989 vandt mesterskabet med mindste margin - a point med Liverpool. Men vidste du, at det også gjorde sig gældende i 1953?

I sæsonens allersidste kamp skulle vi vinde for at få mesterskabet. Vi vandt 3-2, kom a point med Preston og fik titlen i hus på en bedre målforskel.

Det fortælles, at vores manager Tom Whitaker (spiller 1919-1925, træner 1925-1947 og manager 1947-1956) forlod banen efter 76 minutter, da han ikke længere kunne holde spændingen ud. Han gik i omklædningsrummet, skænkede sig en tredobbelt cognac og blev siddende til kampen var forbi.

Tom Whitaker vandt to mesterskaber og en FA-cup som manager samt fem mesterskaber og to FA-cup som førsteholdstræner. Det er tankevækkende, at klubben aldrig havde vundet et trofæ uden hans indflydelse før 1970.

Vidste du, at en vores mest succesfulde managere - Bertie Mee - var fysioterapeut i klubben og uden trænererfaring, da han højst overraskende blev udpeget til manager i 1966?

Det siges, at han fik indbygget en "get out clause" i kontrakten, som gav ham mulighed for at skifte tilbage til posten som fysioterapeut efter et år, hvis det ikke blev en succes.

Bertie Mee rekrutterede to assistent managere - bl.a. Don Howe, som senere selv blev manager - for at råde bod på manglende taktiske evner.

Bertie Mee fik succes. Han fik holdet kvalificeret til europæisk fodbold og vandt Europa Cuppen i 1970, hvilket var vores første trofæ i 17 år. Endnu vigtigere vandt han The double i 1971, både mesterskab og FA-cup.

Den afgørende kamp i ligaen i 1971 blev spillet på White Hart Lane, og vi vandt altså vores første tiltel i næsten 20 år hos vores arvefjender. Der var euforisk stemning efter kampen, og da Bertie Mee havde været ude en ekstra gang for at blive hyldet, kom han tilbage til omklædningsrummet med stort set nøgen overkrop. Tilhængerne havde revet og flået i ham, så skjorte og slips hang i laser.

Han fik 10 år som manager, men forlod posten i 1976 efter dårligere resultater i flere sæsoner. Han var hverken manager før eller efter jobbet hos os.

Patrick Vieira (hos Arsenal 1996-2005) havde mange dyster med Roy Keane. De to midtbanegeneraler kunne ikke døje hinanden på eller udenfor banen, og det kom til flere episoder i de klassiske opgør - i de tider, hvor vi kæmpede med om titlen.

Der går en historie om, at de tidligere i år tog den gamle rivalisering op i forbindelse med en velgørenhedsauktion. Roy Keane havde budt på en middag, hvorefter Vieira bød over. Det endte med en dyst, hvor Roy Keane gav 2000 £ for en middag, der var værdisat til 35 £. I det lys kan man jo diskutere, hvem der egentlig vandt dysten?

Patrick Vieira fik tre mesterskaber og fire FA-cups hos os (desuden fandt han sin hustru i London). Hans medaljehøst var også stor i Italien, hvor han hentede seks mesterskaber fordelt på tre klubber.

At Arsenal med 15 spillere var det (klub)hold, der var repræsenteret med flest spillere ved VM i Tyskland i 2006.

De 15 spillere var:

Jens Lehmann
Ashley Cole
Sol Campbell
Theo Walcott
Fredrik Ljungberg
Kolo Toure
Emmanuel Eboue
Robin van Persie
Gilberto Silva
Thierry Henry
Johan Djourou
Phillipe Senderos
Emmanuel Adebayor
Jose Antonio Reyes
Cesc Fabregas

Af de 15 forlod 3 (Cole, Campbell og Reyes (lån) Arsenal efter VM.

Lille, men ganske sjov historie om Kolos første dage på prøve i klubben:

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has revealed how Kolo Toure convinced Arsene Wenger to sign him - by kicking their millionaire stars!

Toure travelled to England from the Ivory Coast where he was playing for ASEC Mimosas 12 years ago for his big trial at Arsenal.

And Toure thought the best way to impress was the smash key Gunners like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and ARSENE WENGER!

Parlour told talkSPORT: "They rolled the ball into Thierry Henry. Kolo Toure from nowhere smashed him, right from behind, two footed tackle, a terrible tackle.

"Seriously could have been a red card in a normal game. Our best player is on the floor rolling around.

"Arsene Wenger screams, 'Kolo, what are you doing? Don't tackle, don't tackle!'

"Next minute, ball goes into Dennis Bergkamp. Kolo Toure, exactly the same, two-foots Dennis Bergkamp.

"We're thinking this is unbelievable.

"The next ball comes in and he makes a great tackle, Kolo Toure, but the ball flips up in the air and Arsene Wenger used to stand right in the middle between the midfield and the forwards and he'd try and look at all the movement.

"The ball's gone up in the air and where did it land? Right at Arsene Wenger's foot. He's two-footed Arsene Wenger! Proper tackle!

"The lads are thinking this is unbelievable. The trialist has taken out Henry, Bergkamp and Wenger on his trial.

"Now Wenger's had to limp off, he's gone back to the medical room so Kolo Toure's nearly crying. He can't believe it. It was his big day at Arsenal and he's took out two of our best players and the manager.

"That afternoon Arsene Wenger's sitting there with a big ice pack on his ankle and I felt sorry for Kolo Toure and I said, 'Boss, I don't think he meant to kick you like that' and he said 'Look at my ankle'.

"I said, 'He didn't mean it, boss' and he said 'I know he didn't mean it. I like his desire. We sign him tomorrow' and that was it, he signed him."
Yah Gunners, Yah, Uh Yah...

I går døde Don Howe - 80 år gammel. Vidste du, at han spillede en aktiv rolle for Arsenal over 5 årtier, som spiller, anfører, træner og manager? Han var spiller og anfører i 1964-66, men måtte stoppe karrieren pga. en knæskade. I denne periode (og før) spillede han 23 landskampe for England. Han blev træner i klubben i et par omgange og fungerede i 30 år som træner i forskellige klubber. I 1983 overtog ham managerposten fra Terry Neill, men trådte tilbage i 1986 pga. manglende resultater. Han fik ca. 10 år senere endnu en post i Arsenal, hvor han trænede ungdomshold.

Howe er den hidtil sidste engelske manager i Arsenal (bortset fra Pat Rice's 14 dage i 1996). Han var derudover manager i 4 andre klubber, bl.a. Galatasaray, og han nåede også en periode som assisterende manager for det engelske landshold.

Don Howe skal måske huskes særligt for, at han hentede Tony Adams ind på holdet.

En Arsenal-legende har forladt os. I nedenstående link fortæller en række koryfæer om ham:

Min kammerat postede lige denne her på Facebook idag. Synes den er meget sjov og rimelig spot on. Har selv tænkt over det tidligere!

Supporting Arsenal is like dating a girl who isn't your everyday cover model, but who is intelligent, financially smart, does everything the right way, and is the nicest person you'll ever meet – the loyal type; the girl next door. She exhibits class, and you're proud of her, even though she gives you heart attacks every second weekend because she is stubborn beyond all reason.

Supporting Real Madrid C.F.…is like having a risky, fiery fling with a sexy blonde bombshell who has a taste for upmarket luxury, and who has questionable moral standards, constantly exhibiting frightening signs of wanting to dump you whenever, wherever – you can't resist her, but you know she'll embarrass you in public one day with contentious behaviour.

What conflicting club philosophies – it's absolute football schizophrenia.
