One of the greatest players to ever play for Arsenal, Robert Pirès turns 42 today (on Friday).

The Frenchman, who still trains with the Gunners, scored 84 goals for the club in six seasons with the club, winning the Premier League twice and the FA Cup on three occasions.

He may not be remembered as often as he should be, as he shared the pitch with Messrs Henry, Bergkamp and Vieira but Pirès was one of the best attacking midfielders to grace Highbury, and one of the finest to ever play in England.

Thank you Bobby, and happy birthday!
