Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham

Post by Rob Admin »

During the cup final on satuday in the pub a question came up, who has played for Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. Only Gallas came up and Googling it suggests he is the only one. Certainly in the Premier League era, but anyone born last century knows that football didn't begin in 1992.

Were there any others back in the dark old days when football coverage was one game a month starting at kick-off and done 5 minutes after the final whistle, who played for all 3 teams?

I can't think of anyone else.What I was thinking about today with the club being linked to Willian is apart from George Graham has a player ever moved from Chelsea to Arsenal who could be considered a success for us.I can go back to Hudson,Hollins,Pates then later Diarra,Gallas,Cech,Luiz none of whom I would consider improved the team.

Indeed mate :D

I dont think A11 realised I was referring to Rob's original question - naming someone who has played for all three clubs he mentioned.

Still not sure Allen counts though as he didnt play a competitive game for us. He is also the player we dont like to talk about. Our equivalent of the ginger step-son.
