The first game of Super Sunday will see Arsenal playing host to West Ham United, in what will be the first game since Arsene Wenger’s announcement that the Gunners boss stepping down from the helm at the end of the season, ending his 22 year managerial reign at the club.
Arsenal travelled to St James Park off the back of a long midweek trip to Russia, however it didn’t show in early proceedings as they started by dominating possession.
In 1996 English football was simply that, English. Foreign players were somewhat of a luxury, and that’s if your side were fortunate enough to have one. In contrast the notion of having a manager from abroad was absurd.

Sunday witnessed Arsenal emerge 3-2 victors over Southampton at The Emirates Stadium, as Mark Hughes’s side remain 18th in the Premier League table.
