David Seaman

DOB: 19/09/1963 
Height: 6ft 4in 
Position: Goalkeeper 

Since arriving in a £1.3 million deal from Queens Park Rangers in what was then a British transfer record for a goalkeeper, David Seaman has gone on to establish himself as Arsenal and England’s first choice.

Whether he is still an automatic choice for the Gunners in 2000-01 remains to be seen, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rumoured to be seeking a new number one. Seaman has been an outstanding servant for Arsenal and holds the club record number of appearances for a goalkeeper.

Injuring himself prior to the start of the 1999-2000, Seaman did not seem his usual assured self when he finally recovered his fitness and his saves-to-shots ratio of 61% was the lowest among the Premiership’s first-choice ‘keepers. 

But he could boast an impeccable catch success rate, with every cross he came for being claimed by "Safe Hands". 

Despite his heroics in Euro 96 campaign with some crucial penalty saves, Seaman is now under pressure for his England place.
