Every club has their fans favourites and Arsenal are no exception but to think of five cult heroes for the Gunners was not easy.
Usually a cult hero would be a player who has come through the youth ranks or maybe was a player so average that he endeared himself to the fans, but Arsenal do not really go along with that stereotype.
Yes you have the legends like Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira but I wouldn’t consider them cult heroes. It takes a strange incident or a certain game to define a player as a cult hero and although the three aforementioned stars previously had stunning games, they aren’t cult heroes.
Arsenal are a club that cherish youngsters coming through but they all seem to leave the club after a few years so they go from hero to zero within weeks.
