A new feature we are doing on the website is to have one of our team pick a PLAYMAKER that inspired or inspired them. First up is our founder, Ray Paul.
“My pick is – Dennis Bergkamp
Arsenal fans have always had one player who stood above the rest in terms of the adoration the fans have for them. When I was young it was Liam Brady, then Charlie Nicholas, David Rocastle and then came Dennis Bergkamp. In the 90’s I was fortunate enough to be a reporter on football for the BBC, and my editor placed me on Arsenal games.
Having the chance to see Bergkamp live made me understand why football is an extension of art. Done properly, the results can be mind blowing. He is the epitome of what I class as a playmaker, and the inspiration behind the company’s name. Watch the showreel below, and you will see what I mean. Arsenal legend Ian Wright called Bergkamp “The Best Arsenal Signing Ever Who Changed The DNA Of The Club”!”
