35 Ray (John F) Kennedy

Fast forward to the 1960s and the 35th – and arguably the most charismatic - US President ever. JFK was assassinated in office in 1963. Ray Kennedy won the Double with Arsenal in 1971, then moved to Liverpool where he won five more titles, three European Cups  and a League Cup as well as 17 England caps.

Terry Neill - Arsenal

Terry Neill infuriated Spurs fns when he walked out on them to become Arsenal boss in 1976. he reached three successive FA Cup finals - winning in 1979 - and also the 1980 Cup Winners' Cup Final which the Gunners lost to Valencia. He was sacked in 1983 after a home League Cup defeat to Walsall. 

George Graham - Tottenham Hotspur

In 1998, George Graham walked out on Leeds to become boss of Tottenham Hotspur. He won the League Cup in 1999 but was sacked in 2001. Spurs fans never accepted him and never once his name, instead chanting 'Man in a raincoat's blue and whte army'. 

Ron Atkinson - Aston Villa

Big Ron ruled the Villa from 1991-94. He led them to a second place finish in the inaugural Premier League season and won the League Cup. After parting company with the Villans he went to Coventry, who are sort of local rivals.

Arsenal 0 Chelsea 5 - League Cup fourth round 1998

Arsenal came close to their heaviest home defeat (when they were thrashed 6-0 by Derby in the first round of the 1899/1900 FA Cup) after falling to their rivals Chelsea 5-0 in Highbury, in the FA Cup fourth round in 1998, thanks to a double from Gianluca Vialli.

Tottenham 5 Arsenal 1 - League Cup semi-final second leg 2008

Arsene Wenger watched his side falling to their arch rivals Tottenham 5-1 for the first time in nine years, in the League Cup semi-final second leg 2008. The match also saw a violent clash between Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner.

Middlesbrough - Bryan Robson (Left in June 2001)

A Manchester United legend, Robson arrived at Boro in 1994 as player-manager and was manager proper from 1997-2001. That period saw Boro lose the FA Cup and League Cup finals, get relegated from the Premier League and win promotion again. He later had a brief spell in charge of Bradford City before taking over at West Brom and Sheffield United. In 2011 he became a 'global ambassador' at United.

Zeki Fryers (Crystal Palace)

Since joining on deadline day in 2014 from Tottenham for £5 million, Fryers has been loaned out to Rotherham and Ipswich, but didn’t even feature at all in 2015/16.

He might have come through the ranks at Manchester United and played seven league games for Tottenham in 2013/14, but the 23-year-old can’t even get close to playing for a Palace team who he last represented in the third round of the League Cup against Newcastle in 2014. Something’s amiss here.

Andy Gray - £1,469,000 Aston Villa to Wolverhampton Wanderers (September 1979)

The last of four players to break the British transfer record in 1979, Andy Gray made the short trip from Villa Park to Molineux. The Scotsman had quite the time at Wolves, scoring the winning goal in the 1980 League Cup Final, a relegation and a promotion.

Liam Ridgewell - Portland Timbers

Capital One Cup winner with Birmingham City in 2011, Liam Ridgewell is no longer in with a chance of claiming such trophies as he now resides in Portland, Oregon. Well, kind of. The 32-year-old has played over 60 games for the MLS side, but has been on loan since his move in 2014 to both Wigan Athletic and Brighton and Hove Albion.
