Arseblog publishing confirms July release date of new book “OUTFOXED: The team that beat the champions”.
From the team that brought you “So Paddy Got Up” and “Together: The story of Arsenal’s unbeaten season” comes the inside story of how Arsene Wenger’s 2015/16 squad TWICE beat Leicester City in the season Claudio Ranieri’s side marched to their first ever Premier League title.
Completely ignoring the fact the Foxes captured the imagination of sports fans across the world by defying the bookmakers’ 5000-1 odds to achieve a landmark success, this book looks in detail at how Arsene Wenger’s beleaguered squad came from behind at The King Power and Emirates to gain a vital six points in their quest for a fairytale 20th consecutive season of Champions League football.
Featuring a foreword by ex-Arsenal and Leicester favourite Paul Dickov, the book dissects every conceivable element of the 5-2 and 2-1 wins providing the answers to the big questions:
- Did Claudio Ranieri’s 96-year-old mother put a curse on Theo Walcott after his King Power goals?
- Did Alexis ignore team orders to score from distance?
- Which of Jamie Vardy’s three goals against the Gunners was the most meaningless?
- What is really in the water that Danny Drinkwater drinks?
- Is there really a Jamie Vardy lookalike or have Leicester’s shady owners cloned the striker so they can keep him fresh?
Released in limited-edition, full-colour hardback, each copy comes with a 10″ picture disc vinyl record capturing a medley of commentary moments after Welbeck’s last-gasp winner at the Emirates in February, backed by a soundtrack especially curated by renowned DJ Gilles Peterson.
Leicester might have won the title, but Arsenal won the hearts and minds of the people as they showed that every dog can have its day, and sometimes that dog can have two days.
This is a book every Gooner will want to add to their collection. Pre-orders will be taken from June 31st. It will also be available as an eBook and an audiobook narrated by Arsenal fan Cedric Lineker, black sheep of the BBC frontman’s family.
