Vote on Arsene Wenger’s all-time greatest ever players to have graced the fields of Highbury and the Emirates.
Since Arsene Wenger became Arsenal manager in 1996 he has revolutionised the club.
From playing style to dietary requirements he has forever stamped his impression over the club.
Gone are the George Graham ‘boring, boring Arsenal’ days and fans are now treated to free-flowing, sumptuous football all in the pleasure of the best stadium in the Premier League.
Wenger was instrumental in the building of the stadium too as he has been in picking the team that plays his style of football – the Arsenal way.
But here at COS we feel he may need some assistance in deciding who his all-time greatest side would be – and that is where you guys come in.
Over the next few days, you can vote for the best player in each position and we will reveal the team when all the votes are in.
In this episode we look at left-backs, so stay tuned and the only way to make sure your choice is selected is to vote on the poll to the right of your screen.
Nigel Winterburn –
Was part of the famous Arsenal back-four that dominated the English game for a decade. He won the double under Wenger in 1998 and it was a crime he did not win more England caps. Will always be a Gunners legend and started a great line of Arsenal left-backs to play for Wenger.
Was the first ever Brazilian to sign for an English club in 1999. He only stayed for two seasons but scored an unforgettable goal against Chelsea in a 2-2 draw in 2000. Provided great flair and his colourful character in his brief stay in North London. Moved on to have a successful career at Barcelona.
Ashley Cole –
Possibly the most hated player amongst Arsenal fans after his move to Chelsea but the Gunners did produce the best left-back in the world. He is now the most capped England full-back of all-time and won two league titles and three FA Cups during his time in North London. If he stayed at Arsenal he would get the recognition his ability deserves.
Gael Clichy –
Replaced Cole after his departure to Chelsea and made the transition effortlessly. His constant forays forward and tireless lungs have earned him a place in Gunners hearts. An Arsenal fan through and through, Clichy is a hero to supporters and players and his commitment to the cause is undoubted.
