Couldn’t find a thread for this guy, but he’s our highest capped player ever so he deserves his own thread I reckon
Cheers lad cba putting pictures up lmao
What do people think of him potentially getting a board position? After the player recruitment at Leeds I’m against it.
He is the only player to have played alongside 1971 double winning side players, like Wilson, Rice, Armstrong, etc, when he first came to the club and then go on to play with players that would go on to win the double with Wenger, like Wright, Seaman, Parlour, Adams, Winterburn and Dixon.
Personification of Arsenal class. True legend and one I’d dearly have loved to played under early Wenger.
His face just calls out that he is a nice person.
He was a miracle worker with Villa, too.
6th place finish when we were Invincibles, wasn’t it? They were in with an outside chance for CL football until the penultimate week of the season, if I remember correctly.
Do you think his managerial reputation was tainted due to the Leeds financial collapse?
Maybe, but you could see he was building for the future with Leeds.
Why did he leave/get sacked again? Was it to do with the Rio Turdinand transfer?
Would of been perfect in the Pat Rice role. Had a lot to give and would of learned a lot going forward too.
I’ve been saying it for a while, we need someone like him on the board. Like you guys said apart from being a club legend the guy has football running through his veins. We ain’t really got anyone like that, plus he has experienced a practically every level of the game.
O Deary me
He won’t be involved in buying players so his past record there isn’t of concern. He’s a football man and an Arsenal man. All for him joining the board.
And for scoring the winning penalty for Ireland against Romania too.
Did he score the winning pen or did Bonner make the winning save?
Is this the first goal by an Arsenal player in a world cup?
I think it is but I’m not sure. @AM_Exile do you know mate.
You’re probably right.
I can’t think of a single Arsenal player who represented any country in a world cup pre 1990 (apart from the geezer on the subs bench in the 66 England squad) let alone scored in one.
