Over the years Arsenal has had a long link with Irish Players. The reason
I decided to start supporting them was the 3 most famous, Brady, O'Leary
During those days Liverpool where the big team and winning everything but why should I follow them? Their only Irish player was Steve Highway. Football was not on tv as much and your only chance of watching the games was on match of the day on a saturday night or the big match on a sunday afternoon. I was allowed to stay up late on a saturday night, straight after starsky and hutch, to watch motd in the hope they would show Arsenal.
I have never seen anyone with a better left foot than Brady and he could pick out a player blindfold. Meeting him in Dublin brought me back. What can you say when you meet your heroes me all I said was 'I use to watch you on tv'.
Mind you he was not the only Arsenal player the list I have is below including both Northern Ireland players and Republic of Ireland player
I also included some of the Irish women who play for Arsenal and no Eddie Mc Goldrick is not one
