Arsenal hero Tony Adams refused to pick between the three FA Cups he’d lifted at the club when asked which one was his favourite triumph, BT Sport reports.

Adams was a guest for our third round win against Blackpool after a Joe Willock brace and another strike from Alex Iwobi secured our path to the fourth round.

The former Gunners skipper lifted the famous trophy on three separate occasions and under two different managers. 1993, 1998 and 2002 were the glory years for the man described as the ‘Professor of Defending’ by Arsene Wenger.

However, when asked which triumph meant the most to him, Adams – unsurprisingly – refused to pick one.

“All of them,” Adams said when asked which FA Cup win was his favourite.

“They’re all special in different ways. 

“Why? Because the first is always fantastic when you’ve never won something. And I was a different person in the second two.

“We had fantastic football teams in ’98 and 2002 – played Newcastle completely off the pitch (in ’98). We were a completely different team to the ’93 one.”

Adams has had his fair share of slack from Arsenal fans in recent years due to his random outbursts during Arsene Wenger’s tenure.

The two clearly had a falling out about a specific coaching role and it led to the former defensive rock to let loose on the Frenchman is his autobiography.

He still makes questionable comments, but you can’t take away his pedigree on the pitch.

Adams remains the only man to lead a team to Premier League glory in three different decades.
