Since beginning the journey to become Arsenal’s most successful manager in it’s 126 year history, Arsene Wenger has changed not only the face of North London, but English football as a whole.
Bringing with him the philosophy that the right way to run a football club is to produce world class players rather than buy them.

Let’s take a look at a truly ghastly line up, featuring eleven of the scariest souls to sodden an Arsenal pitch.
Goalkeeper : Manuel Almunia
Right Back : Emmanuel Eboue
Centre Back : Sebastien Squillaci
Centre Back : Mikael Silvestre
Left Back : Armand Traore
Right Midfield : Jermaine Pennant
Centre Midfield : Amaury Bischoff
Centre Midfield : Mark Randall
Left Midfield : Alberto Mendez
Striker : Francis Jeffers
Striker : Julio Baptista
