Heroes Together: Alex James

During the 2009/10 campaign the 'Arsenalisation' of Emirates Stadium continued apace. And perhaps the most striking change is the imagery on the outside walls of Emirates Stadium, depicting 32 Arsenal greats 'embracing' the ground and its fans.

These famous names range from the men who made Arsenal great to latter-day heroes. And we'll pay tribute to each and every one of them this summer with the help of a stellar cast of former Arsenal favourites.

Next up is Alex James, the 'pivot' of Herbert Chapman's great 1930s side.

Watch our special video feature for great images and key facts plus the thoughts of Arsenal's Club historian, Iain Cook.
