🏆3 League titles, 2 FA Cups, 1 League Cup and 1 European Cup Winners' Cup.
We've been blessed with quality, consistent left-backs for decades. Many would argue that the best of those was Nigel Winterburn.
The Midlander served the club for 13 years, holding down a permanent spot in 'The Back Four' during the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s. His professionalism and appetite for the game commanded the respect of fans throughout his Highbury career until his departure in the early months of the 21st century.
At the age of 36, Winterburn left for West Ham with his desire as strong as ever. It was testament to the player's attitude that he sought a club which allowed him to continue plying his trade at the highest level.
Winterburn was originally signed with a view to replacing the aging Kenny Sansom but spent the majority of his debut season in the reserves. He duly impressed and earned the right to fight for a starting berth. It was no easy task, replacing a stalwart like Sansom, yet Nigel met it with distinction.
Although predominantly a defender in a water-tight team, Winterburn was not adverse to bombing forward on the left flank. He did just that, and could finish too. Stunning strikes against Chelsea and Norwich live long in the memory, as does one with his weaker right foot against former club Wimbledon in the closing stages of the 1988/89 championship race.
But his return of 12 goals is dwarfed by the mountain of assists that Winterburn supplied. He was superbly accurate from the byline and had a cute knack of prising open defences with incisive back-to-front passes. His set-piece delivery was perhaps most in evidence when he crossed for Alan Smith to head the first goal on that famous night at Anfield in May 1989.
On the back-foot the twice-capped Englishman was a fierce tackler and had an engine and tactical nous that ensured opposing forwards rarely stole a yard on him.
Winterburn's presence in the 'Double' side of 1998 was well merited and testament to his longevity. He spent the season seemingly defying his increasing years, eliminating signs of vulnerability which had started to creep into his game before the arrival of Arsene Wenger.
Winterburn left north London with three league titles, two FA Cups, a League Cup and a European Cup Winners Cup - and continues to work for the Club in a broadcasting capacity.

I absolutely hated the back four at Arsenal with Winterburn, Dixon, Bould and Adams (and then Keown later), but they were some kind of players. Winterburn was superb and as a unit that back four was unreal. Arsenal were lucky to have them. Edit: Even as a Man United fan, this was a great documentary.

Emotional watching this mini series! When you compare those era of earlier 90s 2000s to today of football, I lose the passion I had for a football. But we still watch no matter where we stand in the table! We are gunners from a miles away!

Pearce was fabulous, but who was the reserve England left back from 88-92? Must have been a hell of a player.

Met Nigel at an Arsenal match a few years back, an absolute gentleman. That legendary back 5 will always be remembered by me, I just wish the defenders we have today could follow in their footsteps.

As others have said, please keep these 'Legends' films coming, AFC. They are a delight to watch and furnish us with that little bit more about our heroes as well as being a reminder of how lucky we are and have been to follow this club.

George Graham was a manager and he knew how to make a team defensively. Arteta is nowhere near the level of George. Just listen what Nigel has to say about George the positional play and gradual development of a defensive unit. Arteta is a big "0" and he will fail miserably like Emery. After George, Bruce Rioch(who signed the legendary Dennis Bergkamp) has a successful spell but he got into disagreement with the Arsenal boardroom and got sacked. Had Bruce stayed on he would have enjoyed more success than Wenger. But the biggest enemy of Arsenal FC is the boardroom and mismanagement of funds. Arteta you days are numbered. Some losses to Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool FC, Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea and you're outta here.

I was on a standard Emirates stadium tour in 2017, where as Nigel was guiding an exclusive tour. I see him near the dug out and instinctively scream from Club level seats "Hello Nigel".. then immediately realised, oops shouldn't have done that. Couple of seconds later, Nigel looks up and says "Hello there". What a moment that was, I was buzzing even on my flight back to India. Brilliant player, true servant to Arsenal football club.. COYG!

the england managers during nigels career were imbeciles for not picking him, the arsenal back four was all english and playing together every weak, the england manager had the easiest job of just picking our back for england but no what idiots! , stuart pearce played for a terrible team and so did le saux.

Spotted a mistake in the video. A caption says that the Man U home win in 91 was the final game of the season, but it was actually the penultimate game.
