Goals 1

As a goalscorer in Arsenal's record victory at Standard Liege in 1993, Eddie McGoldrick harbours his own little place in Gunners history.
 
The 7-0 win in Belgium is the Club's best away win, and also their equal-largest success in European competition. It came in the 1993/94 Cup Winners' Cup run and McGoldrick's goal was his only strike of a three-year stay at Highbury.
 
Having made over 300 appearances for Northampton Town and Crystal Palace combined, the right winger joined George Graham's Arsenal from the relegated Eagles for £850,000 in the summer of 1993.
 
The Republic of Ireland international was actually born in Islington and was a regular for most of his first season at Highbury, though injury kept him out of action in February and March of that campaign.
 
He returned in April and made a late-substitute appearance in the European Cup Winners' Cup Final victory over Parma.
 
The following season he was restricted to nine starts and two games from the bench in the League. After featuring only once in the 1995/96 campaign he was sold to Manchester City.
 
In 2008 he returned to Northampton Town to coach the Under-14s at the Cobblers' Centre of Excellence.
