Arsenal's title-winning 'Invincibles' side will likely never be forgotten, sadly the same cannot be said about every member of their history-making squad.The Gunners completed the truly unique feat of going a whole Premier League season unbeaten during the club's victorious 2003-04 campaign, with a star-studded squad managed by Arsene Wenger and boasting the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp.

But while most of that iconic Arsenal team went on to establish themselves as household names, some members of the squad were kept away from the limelight and confined to a mere foot-note in the history books.One such figure is that of Graham Stack: the Gunners back-up goalkeeper otherwise regarded as the 'forgotten Invincible'.

As Stack's team-mates soaked up the plaudits and carved out high-profile careers at the pinnacle of the beautiful game, the former stopper took an altogether different career path - which included 13 clubs and a short stint in India.With Jens Lehmann very much Arsenal's No.1 at the time, an injury to second-string stopper Stuart Taylor left Wenger on the lookout for an able deputy to cover the German should circumstances forbid him from playing.

Up stepped Stack.The then 22-year-old, who formed part of the club's 2000 FA Youth Cup winning side alongside the likes of Steve Sidwell, Jermaine Pennant and Jay Bothroyd, was handed the most unlikely of opportunities to make the step up into Arsenal's senior squad and play a part in a season which will forever be regarded as one of football's greatest achievements.
