Beween them, Frank Mclintock and Tony Adams played 1,072 games for Arsenal, captained the team to numerous trophies and became legends to the supporters in the process. However, each player had a difficult start to his Arsenal career.

Frank Mclintock joined Arsenal in 1964 and made his debut against Nottingham Forest. During the match, Mclintock misplaced a pass and the ball went straight to Forest's Arsenal old boy John Barnwell, who scored one of the goals in Forest's 3-0 victory.

Tony Adams made his Arsenal debut against Sunderland shorlty after he turned 17. Understandably, the young debutant was a little nervous. However, it was only when the teams returned to the dressing room at half time that young Adams noticed his shorts were on the wrong way round.
