Kicking off with the story of the original “soccer czar,” Sir Henry Norris, who bulldozed through opposition to move Woolwich Arsenal to north London, Jon Spurling's all-encompassing history of Arsenal's time at Highbury features testimony from a myriad of sources—from the peanut sellers, turnstile operators, local publicans and fans, through the likes of Bob Wilson, Liam Brady, George Graham, and Lee Dixon. An unflinching look at the last century in the club's history, this compendium tells the story of local opposition to the club's move, the construction of the impressive art deco East and West stands in the thirties, the assembling of the various title-winning sides, and culminates in the story of local opposition to the club's more recent move in 2004. Having written three previous titles on Arsenal's history, Jon Spurling is well placed to produce this definitive volume.
