Top 10 Best Arsenal Players of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Thierry Henry Thierry Daniel Henry is a French professional football coach and former player. He is the second assistant coach of the Belgium national team.

I remember a game when the team was not playing well. Even the fans were booing. I was in the North Bank, about the fourth row, and shouted to Henry, "Can't you do something to shut these idiots up?" Next thing you know, he scores two goals and shouts back, "How's that? Will that do?" I laughed and shouted back, "It's a start. We may need another." But there was a big grin on my face. Henry always put a smile on my face when he played. He also never gave up. He had the right temperament, the right attitude, and the right foot for the job - even when it was his left!

2 Dennis Bergkamp Dennis Nicolaas Maria Bergkamp is a Dutch former professional footballer, who is the assistant manager to Frank de Boer at Ajax.

Dennis helped me fall in love with Arsenal. I love Henry, but he wasn't original. Talented, yes, but still an ordinary forward. Dennis had extreme intelligence, ball control, and athleticism. He always got the ball where he wanted it - whether it was a diving header pass in front of the goal, or a brilliant 360 move against Newcastle. His vision and weight of passing were incredible. He did things no one had ever seen before and shaped Arsenal into their Invincibles squad, alongside Wenger. An underrated legend.

Bergkamp had the skills, the dribbling, the passing, and the shooting. I'm not surprised that he is a 90-rated Fifa Legend.

Definition of Arsenal: Favored and Excellent.

3 Mesut Özil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Süper Lig club Fenerbahçe. Nicknamed "The Assist King", Özil is known for his technical skills, creativity, agility, and finesse.

It may be too early to say for sure, but Ozil may end up being the best player to ever play for Arsenal.

He signed a new contract until 2021. By that time, he'll be known as an Arsenal legend. Mark my words.

The most talented player is reaching his peak.

4 Patrick Vieira Patrick Vieira is a French former footballer and current head coach of New York City FC, who played as a midfielder.

I think he controlled play better than any other Arsenal player, and he really helped the team because he had very good leadership. He was an amazing tackler and never seemed to be tired. He had a good shot and could dribble well too. An amazing player - every manager would want him on their team!

5 Ian Wright

How is this man so high up the list? We only won the league when he got dropped. For every goal he scored, the team missed out on scoring two.

6 Tony Adams

The kind of hardman center halves that are missing from today's game. Also a fantastic leader. If we had him and Sol Campbell back in the lineup, our defensive worries would be history.

Mr. Arsenal! He stayed with us his entire career like a true footballer, and he is just the defender we need today.

7 Robert Pires

My favorite player of all time. His dribbling, passes, penalties, and not to mention crosses were legendary!

Arsenal's greatest ever winger - so consistent.

8 Aaron Ramsey Aaron James Ramsey is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Arsenal and the Wales national team.
9 Alexis Sanchez Alexis Alejandro Sánchez Sánchez, known as Alexis Sánchez or simply Alexis, is a Chilean professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Manchester United and the Chilean national team.

No way that Ozil should be ranked higher than Alexis. Without Alexis, this current Arsenal team would be nothing. He is the heart and soul of this team.

Alexis is one of the best football players in the world. Alexis Sanchez sometimes doesn't play well, but even Eden Hazard doesn't always perform. In my opinion, Sanchez is better.

He should be way higher on the list. He is an awesome player. He may not have had the best season, but he still has a big impact on Arsenal.

10 David Seaman
The Contenders
11 Robin van Persie Robin van Persie is a Dutch coach and former professional footballer who played as a striker. Regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation, he is the all-time top scorer for the Netherlands men's national team. He is currently an assistant manager at boyhood club Feyenoord in his first managerial... read more

Glory, glory Robin Van Persie. Glory, glory Robin Van Persie. Glory, glory Robin Van Persie. Oh, why did you go to Man U?

He is a rare striker. He is a world-class finisher.

12 Santi Cazorla

Creative genius. Plays evenly with both feet.

13 Cliff Bastin
14 Freddie Ljungberg
15 Cesc Fàbregas

No. 8? What? Number 2! No one else that Arsenal has ever had possesses the vision that this boy has in passing - almost everything. I agree that Henry is number 1. Nobody comes close to him. Pires and Vieira should also be higher up.

Cesc Fabregas should at least be number 2. He is the best passer in the world, and I agree that Henry is up there. But the player with the most vision doesn't deserve to be in 12th place. He started being captain at age 20, which is impressive.

Golden Boy award at age 19. Captain when he turned 20. The best creative midfielder that Emirates Stadium has ever seen. Miss you, Fabregas. True Gooner!

16 Liam Brady

Had he been playing now, he would be worth more than Pogba. Pure genius. An intelligent player on and off the pitch.

Playing in a poor arsenal team he was brilliant to watch, a genius.

World-class. The first player to go overseas and actually win something.

17 Jack Wilshere Jack Andrew Garry Wilshere is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bournemouth, on loan from Arsenal, and the England national team.

Don't vote if you know nothing about Arsenal. Have you ever watched this guy? Have you ever seen Wilshere on the pitch? No. 16? This list is a joke.

He is amazing. On his best day, he is the best player for Arsenal and England.

18 Laurent Koscielny

I think he is the best Arsenal player of all time. Indeed, he is the defender I respect most in the Premier League.

19 Petr Cech Petr Čech is a Czech professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English club Arsenal and captains the Czech Republic national team.
20 Sol Campbell

Why isn't he higher? He's probably the best defender Arsenal has ever had.

21 Olivier Giroud

Amazing player. Deserves more appreciation.

Great hair, but needs to score more often!

22 Nwankwo Kanu
23 Theo Walcott Theo James Walcott is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Arsenal and the England national team.

This guy is one of the fastest athletes I have ever seen.

24 Lukas Podolski
25 Ted Drake
