When you mention the name Tony Adams, you're likely going to see an Arsenal FC fan smile from ear to ear. Adams spent 19 memorable years as a professional footballer, spending each moment with Arsenal as a stud centre back.
Adams, who also went on to captain the England national team, was a brick wall in defense for the club. Also an AFC captain, Adams will go down as one of the best defenders the club has ever seen. His long list of accomplishments helps back that up as well.
Tony Adams' career with Arsenal is what dreams are made of
At 21 years old, Adams was named Arsenal's team captain, becoming the youngest lad to ever hold that honor. Simply amazing. Oh, he was only getting started there.
For his career, the superstar CB went on to win four league titles, three FA Cups and so much more. In December of 2011, Arsenal showed Adams love in the best way possible, unveiling a statue of him located at the North Bank of the Emirates Stadium. Again, this is what young boys dream of.
Adams loves Arsenal with all his heart and the feeling is mutual among the fanbase. No one will ever forget about his amazing plays on the pitch. He was no stranger to scoring goals either. Remember his game-winning header against Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinals in 1993? Of course you do (video below).
Come Oct. 13, Signathon is fortunate enough to host a special live event and 1-on-1 for fans with Adams. It's surely an opportunity that Arsenal supporters across the globe aren't going to want to miss.
Adams was a true playmaker and you already know he loves relishing about the good old days. The man means so much to Arsenal FC as a whole and nothing will ever change that.
