This weekend I hit the jackpot. I found my 1994 / 95 Merlin Premier League album and it brought back some great memories. Tony Yeboah scoring that volley for Leeds, Kevin Keegan’s Newcastle and Shearer banging in loads of goals.
I completed most of the team pages but there are a few stickers missing. Here’s my review of the team pages. First up. Arsenal.
There were a few choices. Stephan Schwarz, Arsenal’s Swedish midfielder, David Seaman or any of the back four. In the end I couldn’t look past Ian Wright who scored 23 goals that season.
Two stickers steal the show. A young Ray Parlour with flowing blond hair and an intense Martin Keown with curly mullet and iron gaze.
Morrow, Parlour, Selley, Hillier. Who could think of a midfield sillier.
Ian Selley was the youngest squad member. Unfortunately for the young English midfielder things never really took off for Selley at Arsenal. He did play a part in FA, League and Cup Winners Cup wins but in 1995 broke his leg which spelt an end to his Arsenal career.
The Arsenal shirt was 90s classic. Thick collar. Zig zag print and Arsenal emblazoned on the back. It was class.
