S1 E1: The Invincibles Ft. Alex Brooker & Back-Up Goalkeeper Graham Stack

Oct 24, 2019, 07:00 AM
Rich Williams, Mark Holmes and Pete Farries are joined by presenter and Arsenal fan Alex Brooker to discuss the Gunners’ amazing achievement in 2003-04 when they went an entire Premier League season unbeaten.

Back-up goalkeeper from that season Graham Stack also joins the boys on the phone to reveal what it was like being a part of that incredible squad and how nervous he got acting as back-up to Mad Jens Lehmann.

We finish our first ever episode of The Broken Metatarsal with a game of Football Fact or Fiction in which Rich tries to guess which of the three unlikely stories about Arsenal that season is in fact true.

Make sure you head to www.planetfootball.com for more 2000s nostalgia and more from Graham Stack about how knocking out a supporter on loan at Beveren kickstarted his Arsenal career.
