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 goalkeepers, 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.
John Lukic –
Became a legend at the club during his first spell, as he won the League Cup and was part of the famous Arsenal title winning team in 1989. Returned for a second spell in 1996 but could never displace David Seaman. A fan-favourite and will always be remembered.
David Seaman –
‘Safe-hands’ is a legend pure and simple. He was the Gunner’s number one for 13 years and won 75 England caps. Wenger has never been able to replace him (neither has England) and that says it all. He won three league titles, four FA Cups, a League Cup and the Cup Winners Cup.
Alex Manninger –
During the 1997–98 season Seaman was out injured and Manninger ably covered for him, enjoying a spell of six clean sheets in a row in the league, a club record. The last of these was a 1-0 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford. He received a league winners medal, despite not playing the requisite amount of games, just for this.
Jens Lehmann –
Is there a more entertaining character in the Premier League? Urinating on the pitch, pushing opposition strikers or feuding with other goalkeepers at the club were routine for the German. Part of the 2004 Invincible team and instrumental in getting to the Champions League final (where rightly or wrongly he made a brave decision).
Wojciech Szczesny –
So it may be a tad premature but Arsenal may well have just discovered their very own Iker Casillas. The Polish keeper has emerged as an outstanding talent and has shown no fear when facing Manchester United or Barcelona in his league and Champions League debuts. Could be the Gunners keeper for the next 20 years.
