Name two Arsenal league title winners who have played for both Arsenal and Aston Villa in the Premier League era?
His correct answer: Stuart Taylor and Robert Pires
Only three Arsenal league title winners have played for Arsenal and Aston Villa in the Premier League era (1992–present). They are Paul Merson, Robert Pires and Stuart Taylor.
Paul Merson won the league with Arsenal in 1988-89 and 1990-91. He played for Arsenal between 1986 and 1997 (425 appearances), and for Aston Villa 1998-2002.
Robert Pires was a league title winner with Arsenal in 2001-02 and 2003-04. He made 284 appearances for Arsenal between 2000 – 2006. He played for Aston Villa in 2010-11.
Stuart Taylor was tipped to succeed David Seaman, but only made 30 appearances for Arsenal during his time at the club, from 1997-2005. He signed for Aston Villa in 2005, and was a Villan from 2005-2009.

I was eleven-and-a-half. My family had just emigrated from Rhodesia to South Africa. All the kids on my street supported United or Liverpool, because of their Southern African goalkeeper connections: Bailey for United and Grobbelaar for ‘Pool. Problem was: I didn’t like the colour red – so when FA Cup Final day came around in 1979, I supported the team in yellow, even though their name sounded like “Asshole”. At the final whistle, I had bragging rights and a team that had won my heart.
Then I discovered that the Gunners also wore red. Luckily, I remained loyal, and the Arsenal has kicked my heart around ever since… (apart from a few lost years in the ’90s and early ’00s, when I was busy doing grownup things as a composer in Hollywood).
