Sex Pistols John Lydon admits being Arsenal mad

Sex Pistols star John Lydon says he's always been a huge Arsenal fan.

Lyon spoke with Ian Wright on Absolute Radio last week.

He said: "All through my life from four years old. I used to live on Benwell road where the ground is built, then I moved to Seven Sisters road so really my whole life has been wrapped around Arsenal and I'm the kind of bloke that believes you should support your local."

He continued "My first game was when I was four years old. I think it was Birmingham or something dismal like that and I think we lost 3-1 and I was so angry with it. I remember distinctly seeing blue scarves waving and being really annoyed."

John spoke about his favourite players at Arsenal over the years: "For me, you know the double team. It's an odd one I think it would be like George Armstrong or Bob Wilson, Frank McClintock and I could go on an on and on like that and what I loved about it back then was that team spirit. I do also miss Thierry Henry, wow he was splendid to watch."
