The closest title decider in footballing history. A goal that changed everything.
Amy Lawrence has been writing about football ever since she faced the dilemma of going to the 1994 World Cup or forsaking the trip to take her first job on the editorial team of Four Four Two magazine. She has mostly covered the beautiful game for the Guardian and the Observer, and broadcasts for BBC on Radio 5 Live and Match of the Day 2 Extra. Her books include three works on Arsenal, whose beat she has followed for many years - Proud To Say That Name, Invincible, and The Wenger Revolution. She has ghostwritten autobiographies for David Ginola (From St Tropez to St James's) and Ray Parlour (The Romford Pele), and composed the text for the photographic work David Beckham VII. Amy was voted the FSA Football Writer of the Year in 2014, and the Words By Women Sports Journalist of the Year and Women In Football Journalist of the Year in 2016.
Fascinating for any sports fan and truly a gold mine for Arsenal
supporters -- Alan Davies, for 'Invincible'
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 * Shortlist, for 'Invincible' *
Unbeatable insight. The inside story of one of English football's greatest teams -- Henry Winter, for 'Invincible' * Daily Telegraph *
I picked it up and couldn't put it down. Brilliantly depicts a piece of football history -- David Dein, Arsenal Vice-Chairman (1983-2007), for 'Invincible'
I thought I had heard it all before to be honest...but there were enough other lovely insights - in particular from Arsenal club staff, and fans of both Arsenal and Liverpool, to keep me turning the pages...As I read, I was transported right back to that day, tensed up, and turning the pages as if I didn't know how it all ended. This book is essential reading for Arsenal fans of a certain vintage, and I'd recommend it to younger fans too, as a fascinating snapshot of football in the late 1980s. * Nostalgic Gooner *
