Arsenal fans had to endure a sheer contrast last night, as their 3-1 defeat to Monaco was followed by a special documentary detailing the legendary Arsenal side from 2003/04 that went an entire Premier League season unbeaten.
It was always going to be a time for Arsenal fans to reminisce about the good old days, with many positive memories from that season. However, the fact the documentary fell after their worst European performance in years was a real kick in the teeth.
The irony wasn’t lost on Arsenal fans, who understandably wished they still had a team like the famous squad of a decade ago, which included Thierry Henry, Jens Lehmann, Patrick Vieira, Martin Keown, Ray Parlour and many more legendary names connected with Arsenal.
Watching the invincibles programme now is going to be like watching your wedding video after coming back from your wife’s funeral

But tbh Wenger is a Fraud in Europe. He couldn’t even take the Invincibles to a CL final.

If Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ tv doc underlined anything, it’s that a team is going nowhere without real leadership and genuine desire.
