Here are some of the greatest Arsenal players of all time
Though Arsenal is suffering from its worst times, it’s still one of the greatest clubs in football history.
Top 10 greatest Arsenal players of all time:
- Thierry Henry – Henry is one of the greatest strikers in football history. A prolific goalscorer with lightning pace, outrageous flair and brilliant interplay. He scored 228 goals and assisted 90 times.
- Dennis Bergkamp – Bergkamp won PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year as Arsenal won their second League and Cup double.
- Liam Brady – Brady dribbled the football like a slaloming Olympic skier. He could see passes other team-mates wouldn’t dream of and execute them to perfection.
- Tony Adams – During Big Tone’s 669 appearances for the club, Adams established himself as the greatest leader that the Gunners have ever had. He was one of the youngest captains in Arsenal’s history and did not relinquish the armband until his retirement.
- Patrick Vieira – If Henry and Bergkamp were too godly to comprehend, Vieira was more ‘the meat and two veg’. Perhaps one day he will return to Arsenal to manage them to yet more triumphs.
- Robert Pires – The 2001/02 season was his peak, winning the FWA Player of the Year while suffering a season-ending injury in March. He played with style and swagger, a dapper musketeer with a penchant for a crucial goal.
- Ian Wright – In just seven years after his career started, Ian Wright became Arsenal’s all-time record goalscorer. He scored 185 strikes in 288 appearances.
- Charlie George – Back when the FA Cup was watched by the nation, George had his iconic moment in the final. The high point of his Arsenal career came when his scorching strike against Liverpool in the FA Cup Final helped seal the 1971 double.
- Cliff Bastin – Bastin notched 178 goals for Arsenal, a record that would stand for 60 years. Bastin’s tally of 178 goals was the highest in Arsenal’s history. He was a remarkable finisher and feared by defences across the land.
- Alex James – The Scot was an assist machine and was vital in the record-setting season of 1933, where the Gooners managed 118 league goals.
