Arsenal is, without a doubt, one of England’s biggest sports franchises. The football club has been around for over a century, and they are certainly in the top ranks of the most popular clubs in the world. Without a doubt, they have made the top 5 most notable English clubs list.
Arsenal is the third-most accomplished football club in England, behind Liverpool and Manchester United. They are currently ranked second in the 2023-24 Premier League. Not only that, but according to many soccer betting odds websites, they might just overtake Liverpool by the season’s end.
The club tends to do great at sportsbooks in general. They’ve done so well for themselves, that most punters consider them a “sure favorite.” In other words, the Gunnars are very likely to be the favorite, no matter who they are playing against. Of course, that status changes when they face off against other notable teams. But, for the most part, the fact remains true.
With a history spanning three centuries, the Gunnars have had a plethora of memorable moments, that fans are still talking about. In this article, we’d like to talk about a couple of these moments and discuss what makes them great.
In 1989, the Gunnars set England hearts ablaze, when one of their most noteworthy players, Michael Thomas, scored a strike that would ensure Arsenal’s victory. Fans were not too excited about the upcoming game against Liverpool, another of England’s top-tier teams. Arsenal had just lost and tied in the past two games, and the title was on the line.
However, Brian Moore’s professional and exciting commentary elevated fan spirits, when he started narrating Thomas’ movements through the field. In what is still remembered as one of the greatest plays of all time, Michael Thomas scored a goal, which he then followed up on, ending the game in a 0 – 2 for the Gunnars.
Arsenal fans are still talking about the Invincibles. For the new football fans, the term refers to the 2003/2004 Premier League team that went 49 games without facing a single loss. Important to note here that the Gunnars did not win 49 games straight.
They tied in 13 and won 36 games in the League. However, they did not lose a single one. The Invincibles also defeated Tottenham during the 2004 Premier League, echoing a moment from the past, which no Arsenal fan has ever forgotten. So, without further ado, let us talk about the time that Arsenal won the league at White Hart Lane.
“We Won the League”
In the last moment of the 1971 English football season, the Gunnars were facing off against the Spurs. The game at White Hart Lane would soon become a historic moment for both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal won the game, and what a game it was. Tottenham fans were certainly heartbroken at seeing the Gunnars score their goal, and have been tormented by the “We Won the League at White Hart Lane!!” chant ever since.
