Which one Arsenal player from the past would you want in today’s team?

If you could bring back any one Arsenal player from any of our teams over the years who would it be and why?

For me although there are many candidates with the likes of Ian Wright, Tony Adams and Robert Pires (to name a few), it would have to be a toss-up between our current record top scorer Mr Va Va Voom himself, Thierry Henry, and of course the likes of no-nonsense keepers Jens Lehmann and David Seaman.

It could be argued that with our strike force at the moment Henry wouldn’t be needed but you can never have enough quality strikers in the side, right?

If you asked me pre-Partey, I would have said Vieira, because we were lacking that flair and creativity in midfield but now we have added that and with our strike force I guess I will have to go for a defender, as that is where we struggle the most, so of course it would be none other than our ex-captain Tony Adams. That solid, take no crap from anyone player, that would do well against the big teams and completely play the little teams in his pocket.

David Seaman and Jens Lehmann on the other hand would surely compete for that spot as number one goalie at the highest level possible, and I have no doubt that they both could teach a thing or two to our current crop of keepers about being confident and ruling the game when you are in between the sticks, and showing your opponent’s you’re not afraid of them!

The choice is endless, and there is such a mix bag of talent to pick from and it is not easy to pick just the one Arsenal Player. But who would you choose from the cream of the crop that is most needed right now?

Forward on a good ten years from now though and questions will be asked on whether we will be looking at our current crop of players saying, “I wish we could bring him into our team now?” as we do with Henry and the rest of the Legends era. Never say never.

Who would you pick, Gooners?

    1. Mohsan says:

      If it was manager then hell yeah no one else 🙂

  7. Mohsan says:

    One and only one Santi Carzolla, no one else. He is what we are missing, imagine a team which would have carzolla along side Partey in midddle with ozil Infront of them as AM. If we could bring some one from past from any team in world then Zizu lol!.

    1. siamois says:

      That’s the type of players we are sorely missing the Santi Carzola,TR7..we were really lucky to have them play for us!

  8. Val says:

    If it was just 1 then it would be Bergkamp.

    If it was more then the whole 2004 squad!

  9. Tommogun58 says:

    Bergy for me,what a player.closely followed by Henry and Seaman and if we were just picking defenders Big Tone.

  10. siamois says:

    OT:there is an article in L’équipe that claims that Edu and MA disagreed on their main target,Edu wanted TP and MA preferred Aouar and that Edu got his way,I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true!

  11. Fkhalifa says:

    Carzola or Sanchez

  12. Edu says:

    This Team is crying for Fabrigas

    1. Lozza says:


  13. Reggie says:

    BERGY by a country mile. No contest for me.

  14. Marty says:

    Tony Adams or Frank McLintock…….True leaders.

  15. David says:

    Jack Kelsey. Was the best goalkeeper in the world

  16. Highbury Hero says:

    I love Jens but I can’t pick one so I will name just a few that I loved. The great Thierry and the great Dennis with the entire invincible squad.

    van Persie, Alexis, Cesc, Flamini, Eboue, Hleb, Kolscieny, Rosicky, Alex Song, Bendtner, Almunia, Sagna and Ramsey.

  17. Dan says:

    Henry – miles better then what we have

    1. Andrew Elder says:

      Bergkamp, but would he fit in MA’s set-up? He doesn’t seem that keen on No.10’s.

  18. Dishena Robert says:

    A combination of Santi for imagination and creativity and Ozil for those killer passes

  19. PJ-SA says:

    Odd choice I know but I believe we need an attitude adjustment big time! So I pick….

    TR7 aka Little Mozart

    There are few things more enjoyable than watching Rosicky is his prime!

    1. Sue says:

      That rocket at WHL 😍👌

      1. PJ-SA says:

        Beautiful outside of the boot! Can watch that all day long Sue….

        1. Sue says:

          Me too… the celebration was almost as good – Giroud throttling him 😆

      2. Loose Cannon says:

        personally DB is my era all time greatest, but this team needs a live wire no nonsense captain and my era best captain would be Big Tony.My vote goes to Tony, but the invincibles, good I was there when they were around.

        1. Sue says:

          Yeah a big Tone would go down very well right now!
