Bergkamp, Fabregas, Ramsey and Özil!
Best fullback in Pl's history. Unreal at his peak.
For what it's worth, I believe Monreal has the personality to have fitted in among them, albeit not as first choice LB. He's not at his best now, but when he is, he has something extra about him that the others don't. Still doesn't make him a 'legend' though.
Part of the reason the invincibles were so good was because of the ability of Cole to be such a threat offensively, almost like a winger with Pires coming inside a lot but was also solid defensively. The perfect full-back.
Cole gets better as the years go by. Haven't seen anything remotely close to his level since. Best I've seen in the last 30 years.
Monreal legend lmao.Just because he plays for us 6 years ?
Only Bergkamp was real legend.Cesc could be if he stayed with us and didn't go to that wankers from Catalonia.
Thanks for your opinion but I really don't care about it. I was just stating who I think are legends with us in the position behind the striker.
For some here it seems that you had to have great ability to be considered a legend.
However, Ramsey has far more talent than many former Arsenal players that are widely considered legends. So it's not about ability.
Think that Ramsey was never too influent to be legend.
Please close this thread. Cheers.
Ramsey is a legend for sure. 10 years without trophy and he ended it. 10 years is almost 1/8 of average life in western society. If you are not ready to count players who give you such a moment as a legend then there wont be many legends during your life time.
Legends for other clubs: Terry,Lampard,Gerrard,Giggs,Lahm,Zanetti,Messi,Ramos,Puyol,Totti,Del Piero etc.
If legends are players who score winning goals which end trophy droughts why is no-one mentioning Ray Kennedy? Or Charlie Nicholas? Or Alan Sunderland?
Fabregas is the only legend for me. Started watching in 2007. Earlies people are not really something i've experianced. But **** it if i did not love every part of fabregas dominating the PL. I'll never forget when he was injured and came on and scored two goals and then got subbed off. absolute genious.
After fabregas though? Noone for me.
I think delegend would be a new word for the dictionary in Fabregas's case.
Any player that moves to a rival club, is not a legend of this club. He was a great servant and for sure remembered for positive reasons.
I just think that's how high the benchmark is for legendary status.
Fabregas can't be legend.He left us as a captain of club,never won big trophy with Arsenal and moved to Chelsea.He wasn't loyal enough to stay with Arsenal and become legend.
Cult hero for sure.Player who made difference in game,loved by fans,scored and assisted in some important moments and spent quite long time in the club.
I think it's a combo of how long you'e been at the club and playing ability. What you lack in one you have to make up for with more of the other, however you need at least some of both.
Mate a lot on here now would't know who Liam Brady is . Not that I blame them with our almost non existent channel.
Good discussion. Think there are different aspects to being a legend. You might be a legend in a position, or in a region but not as a whole.
The whole invincibles would be PL and AFC legend. Only two or three players after the invincibles team could be considered close.
Ramsey is a Wales legend. Will be AFC legend if he wins in the Europa.
Cech is PL and Chelski legend. Will probably be called a Goalkeeping legend but in my books he is not.
Fabregas was PL legend, but not an AFC legend. Needed to win something with us. Vieira is better than him in all aspects.
Özil was Germany legend until he quit. Will be AFC legend if he wins the Europa. Very close to being a CAM legend.
McEnroe? Now he is a legend.
