84 goals from midfield.

He used to run and sail past defenders...but no one knew how...he actually shuffled.

I will miss him and his contribution to our titles.

Remember that chip at Villa when it looked like the title was going to slip away but his goal pulled a win out of the bag....WHAT A GOAL!!

Good luck in Villareal....thanks for the memories.

Sad to see him go although I was always a bit embarrassed to have him at the club because he was often accused, some would say rightfully so, of diving. Some of the spurs fans at work took the mick out of me relentlessy after the CL final - saying it was justice that the two cheats of our team were off the pitch after 20 minutes. One of the tits sent me this - I've never felt so ashamed:

I think Pires dived once or twice, but sad people keep going on and on about it. I don't think he has dived anymore than players like Rooney or Owen.

What we should remember is what a truly fantastic player he was for Arsenal and right up there with the best players in the premiership.

I for one will miss Pires. I was hopeing he might stay, especially given Bergkamp's retirment to offer the benefit of experience to the team. Still, I wish him well in the future.

We certainly have some wonderful memories to recall. He has been a great asset to the team, just look at all the goals he has scored. And I will never forget that tackle on Vieira in the Champions League this season. Brilliant smiley

Thanks for the memories Bobby. I'll miss you

The term legend is so over-used. Here being a perfect example of when.

It just shows how important money is to the foreign lads.

Pires chose to leave because Arsenal only offered him a 1 year deal and Vilareal offered him a 2 year deal.

If the lad had any passion for Arsenal, he would take the one year contract and work his socks off to earn himself an extension next summer. This is what Dennis done over and over again.

Spurs fan here.
Pires was a class act, and the one player that made Henry tick. They knew each others play better than any other two players in the league, and I think it is a sad day for Arsenal that they have released him.
He should have been kept on against Barcelona, as he was the one player that in the second half would have got forward and scored for you.

As a Spurs fan I am pleased because it makes you a weaker team, but I still can see what a key player he has been for you over the years.

I hope we do not meet him again in the Uefa cup!!!

Bobby may not ben a legend, but he is an extremely good player who we'll miss. a player scoring that many goals from midfield is rare, and his form in the 2001-2002 season was incredible. I wish him all the best.

I disagree. The club could have easily have offered him a two year deal after all the great years of service he has given them. All he wanted was a guarantee for the next two years. They eventually relented and gave Keown a 2 year deal a few years back. I think it's a poor show and I strongly disagree with the clubs policy regarding players over 30.
We'll miss the combination of him, Cole and Henry down the left. When those three were on their game no-one in the world could stop them.

It was nice to see a great player leaving in nice circumstances for a change - unlike Vieira, Anelka, Petit and maybe Cole.

A true legend.

Hear, hear, a true Arsenal legend, I'll always remember that goal at Highbury against Southampton when we won 6-1.

Thanks Le Bob!

Bobby is a player that never looks like he can run very fast. Has anybody else noticed that the way he runs is a little bit different? Well, he does have a lot of pace regardless.
