I actually think I've made a mistake", Arnold Mühren said in 1978 after his Ipswich Town debut in a 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool. "I never should have signed". The midfielder hardly had a kick and spent the entire game, when he wasn't running after direct opponent Terry McDermott, gazing skywards as a succession of high balls flew over his head. Three years later Mühren and Ipswich Town won the UEFA Cup, beating AZ '67 Alkmaar in the final. It was just a few weeks after his team-mate Frans Thijssen was elected FWA Footballer of the Year, the first foreign player to receive the honour after German goalkeeper Bert Trautmann 25 years earlier. Arnold Mühren and Frans Thijssen were the first two Dutch professional football players in England. They changed the game of Ipswich Town, paved the way for many fellow Dutchmen and are living legends among fans of the Suffolk club. 'Game Changers' is the story about two ground-breaking pioneers. It is also the story of a remarkable football club. The club of Alf Ramsey, who led the club to the English Championship and went on to win the World Cup for England. The club of Bobby Robson, the charming manager who won the FA Cup and UEFA Cup before taking charge of the national side. And the club of John Cobbold, the most eccentric chairman in football, ever. 'Game Changers' is a trip down memory lane to the pre-Premier League era, when two talented Dutchmen helped to turn Ipswich into one of the leading teams in Europe. 0Transl. by Jolanda van Boeijen.

Highbury - citadel for Arsenal Football Club for over 90 years and home to the memories of over 10,000 matches. In this informative book, Bruce Smith exhaustively chronicles the life and times of the Gunners' home ground in north London, from the site's humble beginnings as college playing fields to its present status as one of the most recognisable pieces of football real estate in the world. The book highlights how pioneering architects such as Archibald Leitch, Claude Waterlow Ferrier and William Binnie played a vital role in shaping Highbury and how other personalities, including Sir Henry Norris, A.G. Kearney, Herbert Chapman and David Dein, have influenced its development. Highbury documents the important role and influence of the Football League, Premiership, FA Cup and European competitions in the ground's colourful history and, in addition, details the England internationals, representative encounters, FA Cup semi-finals and European play-offs which have taken place there, as well as the legendary Cooper v. Clay World Championship bout of 1966. Featuring many personal photographs by the author and others from the archives, Highbury is a timely tribute to an iconic structure that was part of the fabric of sporting history for almost a century.

Arsenal: The Story of a Football Club in 101 Lives tells the history of the Gunners through the biographies of key individuals associated with the club from its formation in the gas-lit days of Victorian Britain through to the present day. From David Danskin, the Scottish mechanical engineer and footballer who was the driving force behind the team raised at Dial Square, a workshop at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, to Arsene Wenger, the longest-serving and most successful manager in Arsenal’s history. The in-depth stories of the characters – players, managers, chairmen – here paint a fascinating picture of how the club – indeed, the game of football itself – has developed from workers playing for fun to today’s multi-million-pound business.
