Top 5 Worst Arsenal Players – Ever.

I’ve been given the task of naming the top 5 worst Arsenal players ever! Now, to pick just five is a challenge in itself but the temptation to include Theo Walcott in this list was even stronger after his ‘bambi-on-ice’ performance in the Camp Nou. None the less, I resisted and young Theo did not make it in to the list. These five were not so lucky…

Gus Caesar

Caesar’s most infamous match for Arsenal was the 1988 League Cup final against Luton Town at Wembley. Arsenal were 2-1 up with seven minutes left when Caesar miss-kicked a clearance from his own penalty area, allowing Luton’s Danny Wilson to bundle the ball home. Luton went on to score a last-minute winner and Arsenal lost 3-2. Voted 3rd in The Times: 50 Worst Players ever.

John Jensen

A winning goal in the 1992 European Championship’s Final paved the way for a move to Highbury. 98 matches later and Arsenal fans finally saw him repeat that feet with his first ever goal for the club. Reportedly signed as part of the dodgy dealings of George Graham. I wonder if anyone has thanked George for it?

Nelson Vivas

He started 18 games and came on as a substitute for a further 18 during his first season for the Gunners and struggled to break into the first team. Only ever managed one goal in the red shirt. Suffered a setback when he missed a penalty in a shootout as Arsenal crashed out of the 1999/2000 League Cup to Middlesbrough. Not sure set-back was the right word there, given that he was already so far back he was almost out of the door. None the less, the penalty gave him the boot out of the door!

Igor Stepanovs

After Stepanov’s did not make it into The Times: 50 Worst Footballers list one person commented Igor Stepanovs (Arsenal): “If Igor Stepanovs does not make it into the top 3, I hope the 47 previous players all sue The Times for the slander of even daring to suggest that they were worse than him.”

17 appearances were probably 16 too many as he was offloaded after just one season.

Kaba Diawara

Heard at Highbury:

Why why why Diawara

Why why why Diawara

How did you miss

When it’s so much easier to score?

Now fc*k off Diawara we don’t want you back anymore

Please fc*k off Diawara we don’t want you back anymooooooooooore

    There have been so so many of them. A favourite has to be Perry Groves. He would often try benders…
    I leave the rest to your imagination!

    Ronson, spot on. But I’d swap Vela with Stepanovs.
