We all have views on which players have stood out for us over the years in our favorite teams, here is who I think has made the biggest impact on the Arsenal Football team over the years and why I think they deserve to be in the top 5 of any player lists.
Tony Adams Being one of the best defenders in my opinion his dedication to Arsenal was second to none. Being a strong leader with 669 appearances for the club Tony Adams managed to rack up 48 Goals for Arsenal while playing as a defender. His career spanned from 1983 2002, during that time he had success in the European Cup Winners Cup, League Cup, League Championship and F.A Cup.
David OLeary Up There With Adams, David OLeary proved himself worth of a top 10 position with a great career spanning 18 years (1975 1993) playing as a defender he racked up a goal scoring tally of 14 goals and made 722 appearances for Arsenal FC. While playing for Arsenal David enjoyed success in the League Championship, F.A Cup and league cup on various occasions.
Ian Wright One of the greatest forwards of all time, Ian Wright is a house hold name, great footballer for both club and country and one heck of a goal scorer. With his career at Arsenal spanning just 7 years (1991 1998) he managed to notch up 288 appearances and score a whopping 185 goals! As it was once said, some people are great footballers, some score great goals, Ian Wright was both and his club and country career over the years shows why his football ability will live in the heart of fans forever.
David Seaman Other than a blunder for England David Seaman was admired by fans as one of the best goalkeepers around, notching up an incredible 564 appearances for Arsenal and keeping a whooping 23 clean sheets it is no wonder that he was loved by Arsenal and England fans alike.
Sol Campbell Another in the long list of Arsenal quality defenders, with Sols career spanning just 7 years from a defensive role he still managed to find the back of the net 11 times from 197 appearances, Campbell stands out from the crowd and takes his place in 5th position in my favorite Arsenal Football players more due to his mass, reputation on the field and being a great work horse in the Arsenal defense.
Given there are loads of Arsenal Football players both old and new, it is sometimes hard to pick out who you think should be in the top. In 2008 Arsenal conducted a survey to who dedicated Arsenal fans believed was the greatest Arsenal Football Player and Thierry Henry came out on top, while he has the skills of a top player and deserves his place amongst the greats I feel that the players mentioned above showed dedication, commitment and of course class on the football pitch.
