History
  London's most successful FA Premier League club was formed by workers at the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich and was initially known as Dial Square before adopting the name Royal Arsenal in 1886. Renamed Woolwich Arsenal in 1891, they moved to Highbury in 1913 and dropped the prefix. They had to wait until the 1930s for their first period of sustained success when five Division One championships were won under Herbert Chapman and George Allison. Another pair of league trophies were lifted soon after the Second World War before further success arrived with the league and FA Cup Double in 1971. More near misses came before George Graham, a hero of 1971, was named manager in 1986 and the glory days returned. Two league titles, two League Cups, the FA Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup were garnered during his nine-year reign. Frenchman Arsene Wenger was named Gunners boss in 1996 and the roll of honour continued. A first FA Premier League title made up half of the club's second Double in 1998. Their second FA Premier League title in 2002 - when they ended the season on a 28-game domestic unbeaten run - was also coupled with victory in the FA Cup final.
