Unbelievable! Arsenal did the right thing to let me go – midfielder

Several star players have passed through Arsenal and the club remains one of the best breeding grounds for players.

PAUL MERSON has recalled the moment he made his Arsenal debut – and admitted: I was out of my depth!

Merson spent 11 years with the Gunners and went on to become a club legend.

But he had a day to forget when he made his first-team bow in 1986 as a teenager.

Merson flopped in his first Arsenal showing and was subsequently sent on loan to Brentford.

Merson told the Fantasy Football Club last night: “I remember coming on as sub and with my first touch I crossed the ball into the North Bank.

“I thought: ‘oh my God, I’m out of my depth here’.

“And I probably was because after that I went to Brentford on loan for 10 games!

“But to play at Highbury was great.

“I don’t even think I got five out of 10 in the paper after that for that game!”
