- Arsenal FC's biggest win and worst defeat were against the same team. Back in 1896

however, they got more than their own back by piling 12 goals past the Town goalkeeper without reply.
- Arsenal FC are nicknamed the Gunners because of their old connections with the Royal
Arsenal, an important munitions factory in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
- Of all the current Premiership clubs, Arsenal FC have spent the longest unbroken
run in the top flight. The Gunners have occupied the top division every year since 1919, a record run of 78 years.

record of 178 goals. Ted Drake, however, notched up the most in one season, hitting 42
in the 1933/34 campaign.
- Former skipper Kenny Sansom has won more international caps than any other player. The steady left-back appeared for England
on no fewer than 86 occasions between 1979 and 1988.
- Irish central defender David O'Leary, hold the record for the most appearences. He played an incredible 558
games for the club between 1975-93.
- In the summer of 1999, Arsenal FC forked out a staggering 10.5 million pounds to Juventus
for French international winger Thierry Henry.
- In 1935 Arsenal FC became only the second side ever to win the First Division title three years in succession.
- The club's greatest moment came in 1971 when they became only the second team this century to win the League and FA Cup double.
- Arsenal FC became the second team besides Manchester United to record a 'Double Double' in the 1997/98 season.
- At 7,180 square yards Arsenal FC's pitch is the smallest in London and shares the title of smallest
league pitch in England with Colchester,Preston and Scunthorpe.
- A workman's horse, which died in an accident during construction of Arsenal FC's Highbury Stadium, was buried there and then
under what is now the North Bank stand. It is said to bring the club good luck. The corridors of the stadium are also said to be haunted by the ghost of
former manager, Herbert Chapman.
- The worst point in the club's history was their relegation in 1913 - they only managed 1 home win all season, which is an all-time record.
