NIGEL WINTERBURN

440 appearances, eight goals between 1987 and 2000

Arsenal’s ever-present left-back during the late Eighties and throughout the Nineties, formed the Gunners’ legendary back line of Tony Adams, Lee Dixon, David O’Leary (and latterly Steve Bould).

He delivered the free kick for Alan Smith to score the first goal in Arsenal’s famous must-win-by-two-goals, last-game-of-the-season 1989 triumph against Liverpool at Anfield which saw them win the league title. 

During the previous game he had scored perhaps the finest goal of his career, driving the ball into the top corner from 25 yards in a 2-2 draw against Wimbledon, setting up that famous final day Anfield victory which delivered the title. During his career, Nigel collected the full set of league, FA Cup and League cup medals. 

Ray Parlour

339 appearances, 32 goals between 1992 and 2004 

Ray Joined as a trainee and spent 14 years with Arsenal and was fondly dubbed “The Romford Pele” by The Gunners fans.

He won a Cup Winners’ Cup runner-up medal in 1995 and blossomed following the arrival of Arsene Wenger the following year, being part of The Double-winning teams of the ’97 to ’98 and ’01 to ’02 seasons. In the 2002 FA Cup Final he famously scored a 30-yard screamer against Chelsea.

His trophy tally with Arsenal includes three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, one League Cup and one European Cup Winners’ Cup.

Capped ten times by England, nowadays, he is a TV pundit and regular radio presenter on TalkSport and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Perry Groves

155 appearances, 21 goals between 1986 and 1992

Perry joined Arsenal in September 1986, signing for £50,000 and becoming the first acquisition by new manager George Graham. In his first season at the club he helped set up Charlie Nicholas for the winner in the 1987 League Cup final, dribbling past three Liverpool players before laying the ball off.

Noted for his enthusiasm and hard work, he started most of Arsenal's games in the 1987–88 season partnering Alan Smith.

He made 21 appearances in Arsenal's title-winning 1988–89 season, and helped to create the space when Michael Thomas famously scored the title clinching goal at Anfield in the final game of the season.

Today he is a TV presenter and pundit and can often be heard on Talksport Radio.
