Arsene Wenger’s impending departure from Arsenal allows for ample opportunity to reminisce over his past glories on his extended lap of honour before he leaves the Emirates Stadium next month.
There are too many memories from the Frenchman’s Gunners reign to count but one that the club’s fans will never forget is clinching the league title – for a second time – at the home of their bitter rivals Tottenham back in 2004.
As the 14-year anniversary of that historic triumph ticked around just a day before Arsenal host Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals of the Europa League, their fans took the opportunity to take a trip down Memory Lane.
Some were happy, potentially because the protracted process of unseating Wenger is finally complete, to look back and laud the Frenchman’s achievements, while others found it depressing to see just how different the level of performance was back then, compared with the current team.
We’ve taken a closer look at the reaction to one of Wenger’s greatest Arsenal triumphs….
Heartbreaking how backwards we’ve gone 😔

Do you know something? We don’t really like seeing this sort of thing anymore whilst sitting ugly in 6th place and was completely out of the running by October.

@clivepafc look at all of the off the ball running and positioning.. 👌
Completely different approach and mentality to the current setup where everybody stands still and waits for the player in possession to begin the movement/attack before they begin moving 😞
