Six more ex-Arsenal stars nominated for the Premier League Hall of Fame

Last week, Arsenal’s Invincible Patrick Vieira was inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame, along with Wayne Rooney. They have joined an elite list of EPL Stars of which Thierry Henry is already a member of course, and now the EPL have decided to honour another six legends this year.

They have issued a list of 25 retired stars, and everyone gets a vote to nominate six of that number, and there just happens to be six ex-Arsenal stars on the list.

Number One just has to be Mr Arsenal – Tony Adams – and he likely to be the very first choice for all Gooners.

My second choice simply must be another lifelong Gooner, Ian Wright, who is not scared to show his support for the Gunners at every opportunity. He is one that certainly keeps his heart on his sleeve, and it bleeds Red!

Another one that was certain to be on that list is our rock of a defender Sol Campbell, who famously won the League at White Hart Lane.

The next two are usually called traitors by the Arsenal failful, for leaving Arsenal in their hour of need – Ashley Cole and Robin van Persie, and it is debatable if any Arsenal fans would give them a vote.

The last one who deserves to be on the list is the keeper Petr Cech for his exploits for Chelsea and Arsenal over the years.

The one player on the list that I feel for certain will not be getting any votes from Gooners is our bitter enemy Jon Terry, and maybe Ruud van Nistelroy….

  1. Cech had no exploits for Arsenal if my memory serves me correctly. For Chelsea, yes but arsenal, a big NO. CAN’T forget that night in Baku. Took 4 easy goals in from his former club, next couple of weeks, he rejoins them as “technical” director. Reward for handing is former club the europa league trophy? We will never know. He was average for us and not what we needed when we signed him. His heart has and will always be with Chelsea.

  2. Apart from Tony Adams and Ian Wright, the outstanding player for me is Matthew Le Tissier, a one club player with Southampton, who would have graced Arsenal, Liverpool or Manchester United at their best.
    It is a tragedy that Le Tissier did not play more for England; however managers appeared to like hard working plodders in midfield to a player, who could make a goal from nothing. Ignoring such players in my view, was a reason for England’s poor performances in internationals.
    Matthew Le Tissier, a player well worth paying the ground admission to see play.
