No silverware for Arsenal, but here's five results to look back on

It's been a disappointing season in terms of silverware, but when it comes to how most people thought Arsenal would cope this season, the club has outperformed all but Arsene Wenger's hopes for the campaign.

The team have played the kind of fantasy football that rival supporters can only wish their clubs can achieve, once again we've finished a country mile ahead of Tottenham and we've broken records along the way - notably the Arsenal record for unbeaten games in all competitions (28 between April and November 2007).

Next season will hopefully see Arsene Wenger's latest squad even stronger and sharper and able to bring some trophies to the Emirates Stadium, but in the meantime, I thought I'd remind you of five results to look back on with pride as the season winds up...

1. Arsenal 2-1 Fulham (August 12th)
A first minute blunder by Jens Lehmann and a battling performance by Fulham might well have ended in a draw last season, but the first Premier League encounter of this campaign saw a new steely determination from the Gunners and a fightback which marked a new belief among the players.

2. Arsenal 7-0 Slavia Prague
The Gunners kicked into cruise mode as they humiliated Slavia Prague at the Emirates Stadium. Theo Walcott put in arguably his best performance to date in an Arsenal shirt as he was given his first European start for the club. The teenager scored twice, but had a hand in a couple of others - notably Cesc Fabregas's second goal - as the Gunners had a bewildered Czech team chasing shadows for much of the game.

3. Blackburn 2-3 Arsenal (December 18th)
Arsene Wenger fielded the youngest ever team to compete in a Carling Cup game. With an average age of less than 20, his young Guns still managed to beat a full strength Blackburn side on their own turf.

4. Everton 1-4 Arsenal (December 29th)
The final game of 2007 gave a hint of just what a great player Arsene Wenger had signed when he brought Eduardo to the club. The home side took an early lead but a second half brace by Dudu and goals by Emmanuel Adebayor and Tomas Rosicky capped a memorable trip to Merseyside.

5. AC Milan 0-2 Arsenal (March 4th)
No English club had ever beaten AC Milan on their home turf and after a goalless draw in North London, the Italian giants were expected to sweep Arsenal aside. However, a 30-yard strike by man of the match Cesc Fabregas and a late second from Adebayor was little more that Wenger's men deserved as they comprehensively destroyed the Rossoneri at San Siro.

Can you think of any more highlights to the season? Then share them with your fellow Pies readers here.

Good article on what has been a good season really when you consider that everyone predicted that we would finish behind Tottenham at the start of the season, something which is unimaginable now. I just feel that some Arsenal fans are focusing more on the silverware rather than how well a group of kids has done in such a highly competitive league. It is a shame we have come away with nothing but I think the future is looking so bright that in a few years the silverware will be back with The Arsenal. As for the results I would agree with all of them, especially the Blackburn one where for the first 45 we played them off the back with the youngsters against their first eleven, what a group of prospects they are! The only one I would suggest adding to the list would have been the 2-1 win away at Villa, such a tough team this season and to destroy them for the first half and soak up so much pressure in the second was a credit to them team. I will also remember that game as to when people finally woke up to the amazing potential of Flamini who played a huge part in driving the side onto victory. Keep up the good work.

I think 1-3 Tottenham away was the most satisfying win of the year.
