Form of their lives – José Antonio Reyes
In the January transfer window of 2003/04, Arsene Wenger captured the signature of young Spaniard José Antonio Reyes from Sevilla for a fee of £10.5million. Arsenal fans were keen to view their hot prospect, only to watch him warm the bench behind fan favourite Robert Pires. It would not be until the beginning of the following campaign that José would get his big break. Starting the 2004/05 season on fire, Reyes bagged six goals in his first six games, including a brace away at Everton and Norwich. But perhaps his most memorable contribution to the Gunners cause was helping them overturn a 3-1 half time deficit to a 5-3 win against Middlesbrough. Wenger’s men went on to rack up 49 league games unbeaten, but after a crushing defeat at Old Trafford, the tricky winger failed to recreate the magic.
