Default Arsenal make history

Arsenal rounded off their campaign in style to become the first side to go through a league season unbeaten since Preston achieved the feat in 1888/89.

(All hail Arsene Wenger at this point)

............. P GD PTS
1 Arsenal 38 47 90

ARSENAL 2003-4
Games (all comps): 59
Wins: 37
League defeats: 0
Won: Premiership title

24 AUG 2003:
Middlesbrough 0-4 Arsenal
26 SEPT 2003:
Arsenal 3-2 Newcastle
4 OCT 2003:
Liverpool 1-2 Arsenal
21 FEB 2004:
Chelsea 1-2 Arsenal
9 APRIL 2004:
Arsenal 4-2 Liverpool

And if one single performance summed up a season, it was how Henry almost single-handedly engineered victory against Liverpool at Highbury on Good Friday.It was a performance that encapsulated Arsenal and Henry's season.

Default The greatest team ever?

Football first. Arsenal's is a feat without precedence in the modern game. Preston managed to go unbeaten in 1888, but that was in a 22-game season, in an era when football was a very different sport.

Nottingham Forest went 42 matches unbeaten from November 1977 to December 1978 - but that was across two seasons. Overseas, Steaua Bucharest went unbeaten from the start of the 1986-87 season to September 1989, a total of 104 matches.

This achievement would have been much sweeter if they had gone on to win the Championship trophy. Nevertheless, tremendous accomplishment! EPL is not getting easier, but gunners is getting better and better! All made possible by King Henry!
