Arsenal Gunners

Arsenal Gunners

My favorite soccer team so far!!!!!!!!!

-English Premier League football club based out of Holloway, London.
-One of the most successful clubs in English football(soccer for those who don't know)
-Has won 13 First Division and Premier League titles and 10 FA Cups.
-Holds the record for longest uninterrupted period in English top flight and would be placed first in aggregated league

-Founded in 1886 in Woolwich and in 1893 became the first club from south of England to join the Football League. In 1913, it moved to the Arsenal Stadium in Highbury. Their longtime rivals are the Tottenham Hotspurs, which my stepdad is also a fan of.

-As of March 2011, it was only one of 4 teams to win the Premier League since it's formation in 1992. Those teams are the Blackburn Rovers, Manchester United, and Chelsea.
-Their main colors are bright red and white. Their away colors are yellow and blue
-They mainly play at the Manor Ground in Plumstead
-From Sept. 1913-March 2006, Highbury was referred to as Arsenal Stadium.

In Pop Culture
-In the 1997 film The Full Monty, there was a scene where the actors all move in a line and raise their hands, basically making fun of the Arsenal Gunner's defence's offensive trap.
-And on the British sitcom My Family, Ben Harper is a strong supporter of Arsenal Gunners.
