Select your title winning team

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

Select your title winning team

Post by StuartL »

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52617355


On the BBC website - select your best Arsenal Premier title winning players

No you can change the formation if you like / need to accommodate.


Seaman
I put Cole over Winterburn
Lauren over Dixon
Adams
Sol
Freddie
Vieira
Parlour
Pires

Henry
Bergkamp


Was gutted but no Ian Wright
Opted for Pires over Overmars

Couldn’t leave out Parlour who has won 3 titles with us, was mom at 98 cup final and scored a corker in Cardiff v Chelsea.
His all round tenacity and workrate got him selected over Gilberto / Petit


Anyway, have fun :barscarf:

Yes I completed this too, only difference from your selection above is that I went for Dixon over Lauren at RB

Can't believe you didn't know that. Who is this McLintock you speak of?

:wink:

Any bollocks I'll give it a go but would add any Arsenal team without Wrighty is a cùnts team. :D :wink:

For me its:

Seaman 
Winterburn 
Dixon
Adams
McLintock (just edged Bouldy)
Rocky
Vieira 
Parlour (just edged Freddie)
Pires
Wrighty
Bergkamp 8)

Subs (my rules - fuck you all):

Henry
Freddie
Overmars / Petit

That's the one. I should probably just lock this thread now huh? 8)

My heart wanted Dixon, but Lauren’s toughness swung it for me - Plus the fact I’ve never seen him score a 40 yard own goal chip !
Dixon on the other hand :oops:

Seaman
Lauren
Adams
Keown
Cole
Ljungberg
Vieira
Gilberto
Pires
Henry
Bergkamp..

The two full backs were the hardest choice for me, but I picked them.ahead of Dixon and Winterburn because I felt they were better options.Picking Cole sticks in the throat but we cannot re-write history .He was a brilliant left back. Leaving out Wright , Parlour and Overmars was tough also. For me especially Parlour. If it is solely based on Premier League winning players,Overmars and Wright won one each and Wright was a squad player for the brilliant run to the title in 1998. Parlour was a brilliant player for Arsenal but Freddie just gets in ahead of him.

I would just about edge Overmars over Pire s and Petit over Parlour.That combination of Vierra and Petit in midfield used to intimidate other teams before a ball was kicked.

Speaking of Wrighty in 98 I would say he had contributed hugely in the first half of the season.

Also I had my first doubts about Wenger that day of the FA Cup final when he didn't put Wrighty on for a run. At 2-0 it was one last chance for Wrighty to get on and score and go out the way he deserved.

Lord arsehole was fond of a final fuck up. Taking Pires off in CL final was unforgivable.

He also treated bergkamp badly near the end too
