Every now and again, a special player comes along who has the skill and imagination to single-handedly change a game, make the spectators gasp and set everyone's pulses racing. Liam Brady was such a player.
At Arsenal, "Chippy" will forever be a true Highbury legend, who deservedly is always one of the first names onto an "all time greatest" Arsenal teamsheet. He will always be remembered for scoring some truly amazing goals, as well as for guiding Arsenal to three successive FA Cup Finals, particularly playing a huge part in Arsenal's FA Cup Final triumph over Manchester United in 1979, arguably the most exciting Cup Final ever played.
But Brady's greatness didn't rest just with Arsenal. He went on to become the most successful British player to grace Series A, winning two championships with Italian giants Juventus, taking centre stage for Sampdoria and enjoying a successful stint in the San Siro with Inter Milan, before returning to England for one last hurrah with West Ham.In addition to Liam's club successes, "Chippy" also starred on the international stage for Ireland, winning 72 caps. But, despite all the glory and medals, it is the skill, the talent and that indefinable genius that will always be Brady's legacy.
Travel back to Italy with Liam, go behind the scenes at Highbury and hear from his old coaches, his ex-team mates and the greats of the game who pay tribute to a man who rightly earned his tag as one of the very greatest.
