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.

Alan Sugar is now most famous for his appearances on the television in the UK show The Apprentice, complete with his famous catchphrase: ‘You’re fired!’ However, he was once the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

While at White Hart Lane he discussed a new Arsenal signing with the press. ‘It’s total madness,’ he said, adding, ‘If Bergkamp thinks he’s going to set the world alight, he can forget it. He is a good player but he won’t be successful. Arsenal got him because they needed a bit of cosmetic marketing.’
