The surprise Manchester United player in ex Arsenal captain Tony Adams team mate XI

Arsenal legend Tony Adams picked his best XI he played with.  He went for a 4-4-1-1 and his team was dominated by Arsenal players except for one exception.  A Manchester United right winger.


In goal he went for the calm David Seaman

I cannot have a Schmeichel who is screaming behind me as I think we would have clashed every two minutes.

In defence he went for the famous back 4

It is all about togetherness and the best back four I have ever played in as a unit.  If you do a one v one with Thierry Henry and Sol Campbell or Ashley Cole, Thierry Henry is going to get past you. But I can guarantee you he would not get past the four of us, as an unit.

Tony struggled with right midfielders (sorry Ray Parlour)

I was thinking about putting (Glenn) Hoddle or Gazza (Paul Gascoigne) there but I’ve gone for David Beckham because of his delivery work rate for the team.

Up front it was always going to be Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry

I’m going to go for Dennis – I can’t play without Dennis!  And Thierry Henry.  Naturally because he played left-wing all those years he slipped to that side and came up with that right-foot finish.  He must have got about 50 goals just doing that move!
