    I changed Liam Brady for ‘Geordie’ Armstrong because of club loyalty. Brady only gave us five years before skipping off to Italy.
    And ‘Geordie’ Armstrong was a hero for a dearly departed member of this blog, Dandan, so for that reason alone he deserves a mention.

    Re Brady. He didn’t want to go, he was sold and was in tears leaving. Chippy has always been Arsenal through and through.
