At the time of his retirement, he had played at 91 out of the 92 Football League grounds — every one except Fulham 's Craven Cottage.
Since his playing retirement, Dixon has worked as a football pundit and columnist. On leaving school in , he joined Burnley as an apprentice in , turning professional in , then signed for Chester City where he experienced finishing bottom of the whole Football League in —84 , Bury and later Stoke City.
At the Victoria Ground Dixon made a fine impression with some fine performances from right back as he played in 50 matches in —87 scoring three goals.
In —88 Dixon made 38 appearances scoring twice. This was the first time that Dixon had played in the First Division.
It took a while for Dixon to be given a first team role at Highbury. With England international Kenny Sansom at left back, the equally left-sided Nigel Winterburn had been a guarded success in the unfamiliar right back role, though Dixon did make his debut against Luton Town in February and played six times in total before the season ended.
Dixon was cup-tied in his first season which limited his appearances, and also meant he was unable to take part in the League Cup Final.
Displaced Sansom left Arsenal the following winter. Dixon later wrote in his column in The Independent of the defence that he played in at Arsenal, "I was fortunate to play in an Arsenal back line that earned itself a reputation as being OK.
I'm not trying to be overly modest in saying that, as individuals, we weren't the best players in the world. If one of us wasn't playing well, the others picked up the slack.
Dixon and Winterburn made the full back positions their own for the next decade or so, while captain Tony Adams and the long-serving David O'Leary operated in the middle.
Later in they were joined by Steve Bould who, like Dixon before him, had been spotted by Graham playing for Stoke City.
These five defenders, often playing as a back five together rather than the conventional back four were the linchpin of an Arsenal side who became serious challengers for the First Division title the —89 season , an honour which they had not won since but had looked more and more like winning since Graham's appointment as Arsenal manager in May Dixon was a marauding right back, ever willing to support his winger David Rocastle and his attacking skills were still noted even though his main job and the main priority of the side as a whole was to defend.
He also had a short spell during this period as the club's penalty taker. Arsenal took the chase for the League championship to the last day of the season when they faced Liverpool at Anfield.
With Arsenal needing to win by two goals, the game stood at 1—0 as the clock showed the 90 minutes were up.
Dixon received a ball in his own half and looked to mount a final attack. Spotting the run of centre forward Alan Smith towards the right channel, Dixon delivered a long ball on to his chest.
Smith's run had forced a Liverpool defender across with him and Arsenal midfielder Michael Thomas made a charge into the gap, took Smith's sideways pass in his stride and slipped the ball past Bruce Grobbelaar.
There was barely time for Liverpool to restart and Arsenal took the title, the first of many honours Dixon would win. Arsenal struggled to hold on to the title the following year and were unable to take part in the European Cup because the ban on English clubs after Heysel was still ongoing.
In the —91 season, Arsenal's defence now with David Seaman playing behind them in goal grew even meaner, with just one defeat all season as they won the League championship again.
After the summer, a fit-again Dixon was also defending the League title within the familiar Arsenal defence. With O'Leary's retirement imminent, Graham had provided extra cover in the centre of defence by signing Martin Keown from Everton — ironically the player who'd ended up playing at right back in Euro 92 after both Dixon and Stevens became unavailable.
Arsenal won 2—1. Dixon was back when the sides met again for the FA Cup final which Arsenal won by the same scoreline in a replay, after the initial game had ended in a 1—1 draw.
Arsenal scored an early goal in the European Cup Winners Cup final in Copenhagen and this was enough, winning 1—0. Dixon was again in his No.
Though the defence in Paris was breached by Real Zaragoza , Arsenal equalised and took the game to extra time. A lob from 40 yards in the final minute from Nayim an ex- Spurs player over David Seaman prised the trophy from the Gunners.
Wenger later admitted that he expected to replace each defender he inherited fairly quickly, but just as quickly realised he didn't need to.
