A topic that has been going on our forum for a decent while, is if you had the chance to bring back one player from Arsenal’s past (in his prime), who would you choose.
The answers have been varied. From Igor Stephanovs to Pascal Cygan to David Bentley to Patrick Vieira.
Personally, I’d go with Patrick Vieira. I’m hoping that Kolo and Gallas reproduce their partnership from early last season, which was fairly solid. If not, then hopefully Johan can do the job.
But, from what I’ve seen is that Denilson is simply not good enough. Alex Song looks good and shows promise but he’s no Paddy. This is a guy who can grab a game by the scruff of it’s neck and inspire confidence. A true leader. And how are strikers going to threaten your defender if they can’t get to them?
Some views from out members
Ian Wright, he’d score a bundle playing behind Fabregas and Hleb. Great personality and knew how to get the crowd going. Defenders and opposition fans hate him, which is always a sign of a good player.
While I am tempted to say Bergkamp I will have to go with Tony Adams. the middle of our defense has been poor for the last two season. We miss the presense of a sol or an adams so for me it would have to be tony.

And a passion for Arsenal that still burns in him even today.
So who is your choice?
