Dennis Bergkamp

Bergkamp won PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year as Arsenal won their second League and Cup double.

Tony Adams

Adams established himself as the greatest Gunners leader of all time. He was one of the youngest captain in Arsenal history

The 2001/02 season was his peak, winning the FWA Player of the Year in March when he suffered a season-ending injury. He played with style and swagger.

The high point of his Arsenal career came when his scorching strike against Liverpool in the FA Cup Final helped seal the 1971 double.

The Scot was an assist machine and was vital in the record-setting season of 1933, where the Gooners managed 118 league goals.
