The Royal Arsenal squad of the 1888–89 season

Arsenal Football Club is an English professional association football club based in North London. The club was formed in Woolwich in 1886 as Royal Arsenal before being renamed as Woolwich Arsenal in 1893.[1] The club was renamed a third time in 1914 as Arsenal F.C. after moving to Highbury a year earlier.[2]

Arsenal have won the League championship 13 times, the FA Cup 11 times, the League Cup two times, the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup once and the FA Community Shield 13 times, one of which was shared. They have also been runners-up in the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. In 2004, the club became the first and only Premier League team to win the league unbeaten. The table details the club's achievements in major competitions, and the top scorers for each season. Records of competitions such as the London Combination and the London War Cup are not included.

History[edit]

Arsenal were formed in 1886 as Royal Arsenal F.C. by workers at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich.[3] The club became the first southern member of the Football League in 1893 and won promotion to the First Division in 1904. In the same period, the club changed its name to Woolwich Arsenal F.C. after becoming a limited company.[4] After nine years of moderate success which included the club reaching the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1906 and 1907, Arsenal were relegated in 1913, having finished bottom of the division. Due to financial difficulties, the club relocated to Arsenal Stadium in Highbury, North London.[5] In spite of finishing fifth in 1919, the club were elected to rejoin the First Division at the expense of local rivals Tottenham Hotspur under contentious circumstances.[6] Arsenal have since remained in the top division of English football, holding the record for the longest uninterrupted period in the top flight.[7]

Under the management of Herbert Chapman the club won its first major trophy—the FA Cup in 1930 and enjoyed a period of sustained success, winning five league championships in seven years.[8] In 1963–64, the club first participated in European competition but were eliminated in the second round of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. They however won the same competition in 1970[9] and completed a double the following season.[10] Arsenal have won a further two doubles in 1998 and 2002 and a unique Football League and FA Cup double in 1993.[11] Arsenal became the first English football club since Preston North End in 1888–89 to go through a league season without defeat in 2004[12] and in 2006 were the first London team to reach a UEFA Champions League final.[13]

Footnotes[edit]

A. ^ The expansion of the FA Cup, from 15 clubs in its inaugural season to currently more than 700 has meant successive changes in the competition's structure. Teams in the top two divisions were made exempt from the qualifying stages and the first two rounds of the Cup in 1925–26. Because of this rounds were renamed; the fifth and sixth qualifying rounds became first and second round proper. Since 1914–15 there have been a total of 14 rounds, in comparison to five in 1871–72.[14]
B. ^ Includes goals scored in the Football League, Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup and Charity/Community Shield. The Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and European competitions organised by UEFA are also included, as are several now-defunct leagues: United League, London League Premier Division and the Southern District Combination.
C. ^ Arsenal entered the Football League in the 1893–94 season.[15]
D. ^ Woolwich Arsenal were a founding member of the United League in 1896. The league lasted for three seasons before it disbanded.
E. ^ Arsenal finished with exactly the same league record as Blackburn Rovers.[16]
F. ^ Although they had finished outside the automatic promotion places in 1914–15, Arsenal were re-elected to the First Division after it was expanded in 1919.[17]
G. ^ Arsenal were originally awarded sixth place due to an error calculating goal average, which was not corrected until 1975.[18]
H. ^ No competitive football was played between 1915 and 1919 due to the First World War. Arsenal competed in the London Combination from 1915–16 to 1918–19.[19][20]
I. ^ In September 1939 first-class football was suspended due to the Second World War, with the 1939–40 league table voided and regional competitions contested instead.[21]
J. ^ The FA Cup resumed in 1945, but league football remained regionally structured until the start of the 1946–47 season.[22]
K. ^ Although the League Cup started in 1960–61, like many other major clubs Arsenal declined to take part initially, a situation that lasted until the 1966–67 season.[23]
L. ^ Arsenal were deducted two points after a brawl in a game with Manchester United on 20 October 1990.[24]
M. ^ Ian Wright scored 29 goals in the First Division, five of which for Crystal Palace before his move to Arsenal in September 1991.[25]
N. ^ In 1992 the First Division clubs broke away to form the FA Premier League.[26]
O. ^ Arsenal originally entered the UEFA Champions League in 1999–2000 but only came third in the group stage and were knocked out; however, they were granted a consolatory place in the UEFA Cup under the rules of the tournament at the time.[27]
P. ^ Arsenal became the first team in England to complete a 38-game season without a single defeat.[28]
Q. ^ Thierry Henry was the division's top goalscorer with 30 goals, winning the European Golden Shoe in the process.[29]

  6. ^ According to Joy, Bernard (1952) p.28, Arsenal secured eighteen votes to Tottenham's eight. However it has been alleged that Arsenal's promotion, on historical grounds rather than merit, was thanks to underhand actions by Norris, who was chairman of the club at the time; see History of Arsenal F.C. (1886–1966) for more details. These allegations range from political machinations to outright bribery; no firm proof of any wrongdoing has ever been found.
