Pop History Moment: Arsenal's Miracle Season Ends

On this day in 2004 Arsenal completed an entire regular season of 38 games undefeated under the coaching of Arsène Wenger; the only other time an England squad had been so successful was Preston North End in 1889 - which was only the Football League's first year!

The stars of the Gunners' miraculous season were Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, and Patrick Vieira as they chased Chelsea and Manchester United for league dominance.  Eventually Arsenal would be denied the FA Cup by Man United and the European Cup by Chelsea; they did, however, come within 1 point of their Mancunian rival's record of most points in a season, finishing with an impressive 90.

To go undefeated in the EPL is an amazing feat. I hope the North Londoners never do it again. YNWA. ;)
