Written off as no-hopers, derided for being a shadow of their former selves, the unheralded underdogs of the first team squad representing Arsenal Football Club embarked on a gloriously unlikely but, to Gooners everywhere, a joyously unexpected, entertaining and dramatic cup run, culminating in a life-affirming triumph in the Danish capital, in a match still talked about with incredulity and reverence even today.
More so than ever, it remains, 20 years on, only the second European trophy the current day global superpower that is Arsenal FC has ever won in its long and illustrious history.

With interviews with many of the protagonists - on and off the pitch - this book is a must for Gooners everywhere. Thorough and concise, well researched and well written, The Miracle of Copenhagen is required reading for passionate Arsenal fans worldwide with more than a passing interest in their beloved club - a team that proved themselves to be North London's finest.
