As we approach the end of the first decade of the 21st century, we've been asking Arsenal fans for their finest memories of the Noughties.

Before 2009 becomes 2010 we're revealing the Club's best player, goal, game, achievement and most inspiring moment of the decade.

We also asked some former Gunners and football celebrities about the last 10 years. Today, Arsenal legend Alan Smith gives his view.

Alan Smith

Dennis Bergkamp's incredible swivel and finish at St James's Park in 2002. The more I look at it, the more impossible it appears.

The 4-5 knockabout at White Hart Lane in 2004 will take some beating. It had everything - goals, drama, some fabulous skill and, most importantly, ended up with Spurs on the losing side.

It has to be Thierry Henry. Never mind the decade, I have never seen a better striker in my entire life.

Easy one, this - going through the 2003/04 season without losing a single game. Not only that, but doing it by playing some wondrous stuff.

In a funny way, it was the last day at Highbury. Countless memories for me and and everyone else present. It marked the beginning of a new chapter.
