Tony Adams


No centre half, in the late 20th century, epitomised the position more than Tony Adams. He was the cornerstone of Arsenal's 'Famous Five' back line with Seaman, Dixon, Bould and Winterburn, upon which was built the club's success in the 1980s and 90s and he extended his tenure at the heart of one of football`s meanest defences into the new Millennium as the Gunners wrestled domination of the Premiership from Manchester United.

No player has played more games at Wembley than Tony Adams. Thanks to his successful career, not to mention pre-season tournaments and Champions' League games, Adams passed Peter Shilton's record of 58 games when he played against the Ukraine in 2000. When he captained England, against Germany later that year, in the stadium's last game, it was his 60th game at the home of football, setting a record that can never be equalled.

Tony Adams lifted the FA Cup on his 669th and final appearance after the 2-0 win over Chelsea, to complete Arsenal's third 'double', Tony's second.
