    Manu Petit

    I remember Petit was sold by Arsenal, along with Overmars, in a deal worth £30m.

    Ive always wondered why you guys went for Petit and not Vieira, who was miles better?

    “The night I arrived, the boss asked another French player, Richard Dutruel, to translate. Richard, visibly embarrassed, told me not to laugh, but said the boss wanted to know what my best position was! I thought he was joking. But I soon realised I was only there as part of Gaspart’s plot to become president.”
    -Petit in his book a few years ago

    Hmmm, how strange. Sounds like he was signed off a whim. But I wonder how that would boost Gasparts presidential plot?

    He's Blonde, he's quick his name's a porno flick..

    EMMANUEL EMMANUEL.

    Such a beast partnership with Vieira, damn how we miss this type of player today.

    He was meeting Spurs and was close to signing until he heard Arsene was interested. They even gave him cab fare to go back to the hotel/airport but instead he went to Highbury and signed for Arsenal.

    Only one season IMO. And that's not good for all the expectations people had of signing him.

    He had just returned from an injury and was 30 years. I never expected him to be as good as his old arsenal days but he was a great signing for the money paid.

    Henry was worth what we paid for no doubt,forget the hype he was a striker we bought for 24M for a guy who was our top goal scorer in his 1st year,part of the best team we ever had in 2nd year with a "not bad " final year
    Gio Van Bronckhorst was a steal too ,liked Overmars but we were mess at that time
    Overall I agree we should targeting Arsenal players
