Before this generations time.
Good call. Mostly saw him in a football magazine in the 80's . Never watch him play in live game due to limited access to football at that moment.
Why is Sanchez even in there.
I love him but he's only had one great season with us.
I prefer Freddie in there.
C Preedy, T Parker, E Hapgood, C Jones, H Roberts, A Haynes, J Hulme, D Jack, J Lambert, A James, C Bastin.
Sanchez is a monster. Lives and breathes football. Sentiment aside is a few levels above Ljungberg who you couldn't fault for effort either.
Sanchez is a laughable inclusion imo. A mockery of players who have contributed a lot to Arsenal FC.
Wouldn't consider Sanchez until he has a few seasons here at least.
It's a joke really.
If Fabregas makes it, then why doesn't someone like Rvp as well? He was miles better than Sanchez. Put him on the wing, he played there a lot.
If it's about one season, then only Henry tops Rvp 11/12, so by this Sanchez logic, Rvp should be ahead of Bergkamp.
I think you guys are taking this too seriously.
What's your team, mate?
Tbf, it's ludicrous to claim Sanchez's inclusion is 'laughable'. This isn't a nostalgia XI we're all trying to pick here.
I loved Freddie, obviously, but comparing him to Sanchez on ability, which is meant to be the criteria, would be scandalous lol
I thought this was a Arsenal team based on the best players, not how long they've been here. If Alexis continues at the same level on the wing he'll be remembered as best seen in that position if he isn't already. Only Pirès and Overmars comes close as wide men
Really? Does that need explaining? How about because Cesc was arguably Arsenals greatest ever creative midfielder, and RvP wasn't better than Henry? It's really not as complicated you're trying to make it.
He was **** on the wing. The End.
Your logic needs to go straight in the bin.
OP says pick the team with your favourite players. Why you include them is up to you. It could simply be their ability or it could be the influence they have had on Arsenal.
The criteria isn't on ability as far as I'm aware, I don't think including Sanchez is laughable either but Overmars and Ljunberg are both fair shouts.
OK, I don't know how I forget him but - Marc Overmars.
Dixon, Adams, Campbell, Cole
Pires, Vieira, Cesc, Overmars
Nah mate, the OP clearly directs you to pick the players who you thought were the best, or words to that effect.
Sanchez is better than Overmars and Ljunberg and will go on to do more here, personally.
But for nostalgic reasons, and the impact he had, I have to pick Overmars.
If it was about nostalgia or my personal favs for whatever reasons, Eboue, Wright, Winterburn, Bould, Rocastle, Michael Thomas, Limpar etc would all be there. The lovable rogues and cult heroes.
Anelka would make my sub's bench, sensational player.
