Best of both worlds for Freddie

West Ham United, the club that put the 'gate' into Lasagna-gate come visiting this weekend. Here's a list of players that have been both Gunners and Hammers. Quite a few illustrious names among them;

·         Dick Burgess
·         Stan Earle
·         Jimmy Marshall
·         Archie Macaulay
·         Jimmy Bloomfield
·         Jim Standen
·         Bobby Gould
·         John Radford
·         Liam Brady
·         Steve Walford
·         Lee Champman
·         Stewart Robson
·         John Hartson
·         Ian Wright
·         Nigel Winterburn
·         Kaba Diawarra
·         Davor Suker
·         Freddie Ljungberg

Most recently Freddie Ljungberg, and it was on a night against West Ham in the mighty 2001/2002 season that the Clock End initiated the ‘we love you Freddie’ song.

"We love you Freddie, because you've got red hair, we love you Freddie because you're everywhere, we love you Freddie, you're Arsenal through and through"

Freddie played a great part in Arsenal's success from his debut goal against Man Utd to his run of goals that helped secure the double. His FA cup goal that shut up Chelsea and his 'V' flicking at White Hart Lane. He was also the first player to score in an FA Cup final outside England and the first player to score in 2 consecutive FA cup finals. One of the invincibles and a member of Arsenal's last trophy winning side and European Champions League finalist with Arsenal. Fred was a character alright and a winner.
