2003-04: The Invincibles

38 games: 26 wins, 12 draws.

Arsenal’s team in the 2003-2004 season went undefeated, sweeping up the Barclays Premier League trophy in a blur of attractive offense mixed with a rock-steady defense. Such a feat had only been done once before in England, achieved by Preston North End in 1889(!). It is largely considered one of the most impressive displays in the history of the English game, and earned the squad the moniker “The Invincibles”.

The Arsenal of 03-04 was loaded with quality. Thierry Henry hit 30 goals, Bergkamp and Pires provided moments of magic, Vieira and Gilberto Silva commanded the midfield and Campbell and Toure bossed the 18-yard-box while Lehmann made the saves. Two young fullbacks made a name for themselves in Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy and old heroes in Ray Parlour and Martin Keown lifted a well-deserved trophy much to the delight of long-time fans. All of this was complemented by the quality of Edu, Reyes, Wiltord, Lauren, Kanu, and others – a truly inspirational team.

Sadly, the season did not include a Champions League, FA Cup or Carling Cup victory despite the quality of the team.

Notable players: All involved.
Manager: Arsene Wenger.
