The 2003/04 campaign, for me, represents the pinnacle of English football.
For a single season, it just does not get any better. Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal won the league in the most spectacular fashion, playing through an entire campaign without losing a single match.
Played 38, Won 26, Drew 12, Lost precisely none.
My views also appear to be shared by a whole host of other non-Arsenal fans too as The Invincibles have been named the greatest team in Premier League history.
It`s no secret that I`m not a fan of the so called awards and accolades that use the phrase "since the start of the Premier League", it infers, to me at least, that football simply wasn`t worth bothering with before the inception of the league`s current format (case in point, the excitement at the apparent greatest title race ever for Man City`s league win, completely ignoring the once in a life time events of Anfield `89 simply because they occurred outside of the Premier League brand), but that said, this is a team that needs recognising, and happily this award shows the magnificence of what they achieved.
Arsene Wenger talked of his pride in that amazing team. 'I am very proud of this [award] and very happy, I told the players at the time that they could achieve something special once we were champions - being invincible."
'And they did it. At the time they didn't realise how much it would mean in the future, but I'm very proud of the achievement of course."
My target is to get Arsenal back to that level."
'I feel personally that we are not far away from being able to fight for the championship, and let's hope we can show that next season.'
I feel very privileged to have been a part of that season, if only as a cheering supporter, there are fans all over the world who`d give their right arm to be in our current position, so to have witnessed a team play such amazing football and accomplish such an unprecedented feat gives me great satisfaction.
