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 were not playing well, even the fans were booing. I was in the North bank about 4th row and shouted to Henry 'Can't you do something to shut these idiots up? ' thing he scores 2 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 and 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!

Like an electric waterbug skimming around the pitch always able to find the better shooting angle... so fun when ball at his feet!

Yes, those are EPL stats... full stats is 226 goals in 364 apps... breathtaking and definitely the best of all time for the Gunners

Him first bergkamp second.. But Henry first for obvious reasons

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 to love Arsenal. I love Henry, but he wasn't original. Talented, but still an ordinary forward. Dennis had extreme intelligence, ball control, and athleticism. He always got the ball where he wanted it (diving header pass in front of goal, brilliant 360 move vs Newcastle, etc). His vision and weight of passing were incredible. He did things no one has seen before, and shaped Arsenal into their Invincibles squad (alongside Wenger). An underrated legend.

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

Definition of Arsenal: Favoured and Excellent.

Without him we would have not had the greatest scores in our history.
Legend I don't say that lightly.
The most skilful player I have ever seen live.

Bergkamp is one the most skillful players I have ever warched! He controls the ball beautifully!

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

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

The Most talented player reaching his peak.

Great players. He has the eyes of god.

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 he never steamed to be tired, he had a good shot and could dribble well to.
An amazing player every manager would want him in there 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.

Should not be so high up. Won the league just before he came and won it again a few months after he was dropped

He scores lovely goals

6 Tony Adams

The kind of hardman centre halves that are missing from todays game. Also a fantastic leader. If we had him and Sol Campbell back in the line up our defensive worries would be history.

Mr Arsenal! Stayed with us his entire career like a true footballer and he was just the defender we need today.

7 Robert Pires

My favourite player of all time. His dribbling, passes, penalties and not to mention crossers 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.

He is the best

9 David Seaman
10 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 player in the world. Alexis Sanchez sometimes not played good but even Eden hazard but in my opinion I say Sanchez is better

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

Fantastic player; currently the best player of the team with a promissory future.

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 role.

Over-rated. Shouldn't be this high on this list. He's only up here because young people can't remember the legendary players of old.

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 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! Nobody else that Arsenal has ever had has the vision that this boy has, passing, almost everything... I agree that Henry is number 1, nobody comes close to him... and also Pires and Vieira should be higher up...

Cesc Fabregas should at least be number 2 he is the best passer in the world and I agree dat henry is up their but the player with the most vision does not deserve to be 12 place. He started being captain at age 20 that is impressive

Golden boy award at age 19. Captain when he turned 20. Best creative midfielder that Emirates stadium has ever seen. Miss you Fabregas. True gooner!

This guy's a snake. Plain and simple.

16 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 are know nothing about arsenal.
Have you ever watch this guy? Have you ever watch wilshere on the pitch?

Good best player

He is amazing he is the best player for arsenal and England on his day he is epic

17 Liam Brady

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

World Class, First player to go overseas and actually win something

18 Laurent Koscielny

I think he is the best arsenal player of all time... Indeed he is the defender I respect most in pl

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. Probably the best defender at arsenal ever

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
