Sitting here watching the Palace game and seeing big Paddy back again has brought all the emotions out of me and I find myself reminiscing about when we were a great team.
Patrick Vieira. Now there is a true Arsenal legend. Just the name makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I have more love and respect for him than I do for the whole of the current team. I mean, who do we have in that role now. Xhaka? Granit bloody Xhaka! You should be flogged just for mentioning his name with Paddy's in the same sentence.
Go on Palace. You are definitely by second favourite team all the while the legend is there.

Glad we didn't buy Emerson Royal at RB. Palace tormented him all game.

Tell you what Jim mate
Been a Gooner for 56 years and when I think about my greatest Arsenal 11
sometimes I swap Seaman for Jennings and Campbell for Keown and a couple of other positions but Paddys name goes down every time along with Tony, Thierry and Dennis.

100% Bill. I'm not quite old enough to remember Jennings (I'm 39) but Seaman, Adams, Paddy, Dennis and Thierry would be my first names too.

Now there is a player who knows what it's like to represent the club and what it means to the fans. Always gave his all, can't remember any bad games he had, and between him and Tony, the best captains we ever had. You simply cannot compare him to Arteta in any way shape or form. One day he'll come and manage us, I'm sure, and what an almighty life he would give to everyone connected with the club.
