In 1866, in a small manger in South London, the Arsenal Football Club was born. The club joined the Football League in 1893. Since then, the Gunners have won 13 League and Premiership titles and 10 FA Cup championships. They hold the record for the longest consecutive stint in the top flight; and they are the only Premier League team ever to finish an entire season undefeated. Along with Barcelona, Arsenal play the most attractive brand of attacking football - based on close control, passing, and movement - to be seen in the world.
