I`m trying to get as many Gooners as possible to go to the offical Arsenal site "Arsenal.com" and write to the club about a statue of captain fantastic outside the new ground.
No one deserves a statue more than Tony Adams. He has lead us to 3 league titles (4 after this seasone), 2 league cup trophies, 1 Europan and 2 (3 after this seasone) Fa cup trophies.
So please go to Arsenal.com and tell them how great it would be with a Tony Adams statue you to !
I have wrote this to a few Arsenal sites now and will write it to many more (do the same you to) :angel:

I dunno about that :confused:

It will seem like he's dead like Herbert Chapman :confused:

I'd rather have him sitting on the bench alongside Le Boss :)

What about Ian Wright?
How cool would it be to have Arsenal's top goalscorer outside the stadium.
But I also like the idea of Tony Adams statue. They could make a statue of him celebrating the goal agaisnt Everton in '98, which clinched us the Championship. They will probably do it in50 years time.

You may be right that it may be a little bit early to bulid a statue of Tone but he`s the biggest hero we ever seen at Arsenal (No doubt) and I think a statue of a Highbury legend outside the new ground would be good, to keep something from the past and no one deserves to have s statue of himself as the captain who has been apart of teh most successful time in the history of the club.

Also remember that Sven Göran Eriksson got a statue in his home town and they can bulid a statueof him why can`t we bulid one of Tony ?
As for Ian Wright. He is a big hero but not a bigger hero than Charlie Geroge for example. I think the only rival to Adams would be Liam Brady.

The Madam Tussaul ... (spelling) statues of all the Gunner Greats should be good. I don't think Tony Adams wants to be alone at night, given the "famous" London weather :tongue:

I like Jacke's idea.

I think Captain Fantastic deserves a statue infront of the new Stadium.

And it seems to you that he must retire or something if he will get a statue...he can be both a player/coach and have a stadue you know ;) hehe

I would also like a part of the new Stadium named after Tony, "Tony Adams Corner" or something like that :)

We will never get a player like Tony in our club again so if there's anyone we should salute and do alot of things to hail him, it is Tony Adams.

I don`t know anything about this, it`s 10 games you have to play isn`t it ?.
If FA would have any sense at all the would give our captain a medel anyway.

You have to play 10 games to get a medal. I knoe it is a f*cked up rule but I think Wenger will sort it out.

Players in danger of not getting a medal are;

Adams-------- 7 appearances
Dixon--------- 9
Stepanovs--- 5
Edu----------- 9
Taylor--------- 9
Jeffers-------- 5

Ok thanx for telling GoonerMC. I don`t think Edu is in any danger if not get injured, But you never know with Big Tone and if we already have won the league before the last game against Everton I really hope that Dixon and Taylor will be played because they are both worth medals.
