I’m still buzzing from PSG qualifying into the CL 1/4 finals (although anxious that the competition will be cancelled due to Covid-19) and going down the PSG memory lane remembering of times when in the 90s, we had players like Rai that helped us beat teams like Real Madrid, I thought that it would be fun to look back at the Arsenal Invincibles team especially since Liverpool cannot match our feat anymore…What a team we had!
So I asked myself the question, if I could recruit one player from our Invincibles team (took the players with the most played games in the EPL so no Edu or Parlour or Wiltod), who would it be and why?
Lehmann – Lauren, Toure, Campbell, Cole – Freddie, Vieira, Silva, Pires – Bergkamp, Henry
The obvious choices maybe Lehmann – Campbell – Vieira – Henry but Pires was just phenomenal that year and our defense was hard to break and given the state of our defense, shouldn’t we directly upgrade our RB or LB?
It is hard to tell and I am looking forward to your answers. Remember, the angle is not “who you liked best” from the Invicibles team but which player would improve us the most and address our most pressing weaknesses?
I will share with you my views a bit later as I do not want to influence your opinion 😛
