Great player but never had a manager brave enough to build a side around him.
Proved his real ability in Italy and delivered a League title at Juventus.
Hated when he left but years later im pleased because he wouldn’t have been rewarded here. One of those players that Graham and especially Wenger would of recognised true value in.

I remember the Sun’s sport headlines after the FA Cup final in ‘79 after the win against Manchester United
Quite simply brilliant

‘ Chippy Chippy Bang Bang ‘

Brady was a fabulous player.

Was the first time as a supporter that I REALLY got upset that we were allowing a player to leave…I could not believe it, and I honestly thought that this was the end of Arsenal…

I really do think it’s a shame Brady never got to show what he had at a Euros or World Cup. He would have been lost in the Charlton sides of the time that qualified for 88 and 90 which basically bypassed midfield though.

Yeah there was a huge debate going on about that before his injury curtailed his career for Euro 88 in the Irish press.
The whole country was split on that. Dunphy and Giles were strongly against the style being played at the sacrifice of Brady’s game.
