“It’s a tremendous honour for me and my wife to be here tonight to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. When I arrived here I was a kid who couldn’t get in to the Arsenal side, but by the time I left I’d had a wonderful time and had become a full international. When I left, myself and Francis (Lee) sought to differ that I was getting a little bit too old. I apologise for all that time Francis, but we were both trying to do our best for the club, and as long as everybody keeps doing that this club will always remain special. I am very pleased with this award. Thank you.” Niall Quinn collecting the Hall of Fame award in January 2004
