Sometimes, you just need some nostalgia, so here’s a big dollop as this decade draws to a close.
These are my top five favourite Arsenal moments from this decade. Feel free to like or dislike mine and add your own in the comments.
Henry returns v Leeds
This was a marvellous night. Dad’s proudly brought small sons, who had never seen him play, to have the opportunity to watch Thierry Henry grace our pitch. They weren’t disappointed, we weren’t disappointed ……. he scored, The Emirates erupted, it was written in the script.
Arsenal 2 Barcelona 1
There was no script for this next game or if there was, we tore it up. It was another atmospheric night at The Emirates. We really did play football like this 😁
Arsenal 5 Totts 2
Twice in 2012, February and November
This is a double whammy. Beating Totts twice at home in one year with the score line 5-2 oh how we laughed.
February 2012 – can only find this with arabic commentary.
FA Cup win 2014
We won 3 FA Cups in this decade, 2014, 2015 and 2017. To me the 2014 is the sweetest, coming after a long trophy drought.
Oh how we smiled
Wilshire goal (team goal) v Norwich
There were some special goals scored, obviously there were. It was tough to choose between this fabulous team goal and the Olivier Giroud scorpion. But in the end I chose this one.
Please add as many goals and games as you like in the comments for everyone to enjoy.
Wishing you all a Happy New Arsenal in 2020 and beyond.
