Football (Arsenal)
Arsenal

Like Manchester United, there have been some great teams in Arsenal's history, namely the double-winning sides of 1997/1998 and 2001/2002 and, of course, the Invincibles (2003/2004), who, like Man U 1998/1999, will go down in football history as a memorable team. I also quite like the FA Cup winning side (2002/2003) that almost won the league had it not been a momentary lapse in concentration, and the FA Cup winning side (2004/2005) that came out of the Invincible season (2003/2004) with confidence and complacence but were a star-studded team nonetheless as it was essentially identical to the Invincibles. I must, therefore, pay homage to the Arsenal 'Invincibles' of 2003/2004, which really was a spectacular formation:  

Jens Lehmann

Lauren

Freddie Ljunberg

Kolo Toure

Sol Campbell

Patrick Vieira

Francesco Toldo

Dennis Bergkamp

Thierry Henry

Ashley Cole

Robert Pires

My all-time Arsenal best XI, however, is probably a bit different, though many of these legendary players figure: 

David Seaman

Lee Dixon

Alexis Sanchez

Tony Adams

Sol Campbell

Patrick Vieira

Mesut Ozil

Dennis Bergkamp

Thierry Henry

Ashley Cole

Robert Pires

I also have a lot of respect for Arsenal football club, despite what people are saying about them and Arsene Wenger nowadays, as they are a club of proud traditions and history, and I love the days in the 1990s/2000s when the English Premier League was a duopoly between Manchester United and Arsenal. 

People say that their team has degenerated after the eternally famous Invincibles (2003/2004), but I still think that they are a great team with very talented players- winning three FA Cups in four years (2013/2014, 2014/2015, 2016/2017) as well as a record number of FA Cups (13) with a record-winning manager (Arsene Wenger) (7) is no small feat by any means. There is still a lot of turmoil in the team as of now (2017/2018) and let's hope that they reclaim the Premier League trophy and avenge themselves of the controversial Champions' League final in 2006 some time soon (though it may not be any time soon...).
