    A real legend. Might not get the sort of hype that the likes of Adams get but still a great servant to the club for many years. Arsenal through and through and I'm sure we're all going to miss him. Good luck to him whatever he decides to do next.

    A hero if he plays for you, a villain if he's against you. The perfect centre half.

    Always a good servant to the club, But his status grew tremendously when he gave van divinghorse that karate chop across his back. ;D

    Martin Keown has given his heart on the pitch for the club in every single game. He is a fighter and never gives up.I feel his fighting character has brushed off the other players showing what a tremendous influence he is.

    Thanks Martin for being such a great servant to the club.

    I hope you're on about the red against Boro in the Carling Cup! :wink:

    Ah, you have to love Martin Keown. Well, if you're an Arsenal fan anyway. The man loves Arsenal, and is essentially our last remaining link to the Boring, Boring, Arsenal of the 80s under George Graham. We'll miss him :(

    So sad to see the last of the old guard gone, i shed a little tear at the match last night as he took a lap of honour! I bet no one is more relieved than van pissyroy, keown always had his number!

    Martin Keown. There can only ever be one. An immensley talented and pasionate defender who cared about the club to the maximum degree. A man who reacted how all gooners would ahve done if confronted by Van Divealot. A living legend.

    Arsenal legend for sure, i remember when he broke into the team in place of Bould I was thinking our back four wouldn't be the same, but you wouldn't have realised anything was missing. He really gave everything for the club and all i can say is Thank You.

    The last of the past to go in the Wenger Era.
    Man-Marker supreme, we will miss his battles with
    the opposing strikers such as Shearer, Hasselbaink
    and van nistelrooy.

    His maniacal defence and throbbing veins will always
    be reminded for the terror he inflicts on those stand before us.

    no defender can beat his determination and passion on the field and fight for the ball 100% till the ref says its over like our KEOWN does..a real professional till the end and there will be only one KEOWN ....and Arsenal should be proud to have a player like him to grace our team ...will be sorely missed no doubt for his loyalty and dedication...three cheers to KEOWN! thank you for the years u have given us and more good years to u !
