May 7, 2006 was a special day for Arsenal fans everywhere - especially the 38,000 or so packed into Highbury.

That afternoon's game was the Club's last at its spiritual home before the short move to Emirates Stadium, and it was a day of celebration.

Putting aside all the historical significance of the occasion, Arsenal needed to better Tottenham's result at West Ham to beat their rivals to a Champions League place.

The Hammers did Arsène Wenger's side a favour and the Gunners did the rest, beating Wigan Athletic 4-2 thanks largely to a hat-trick from Thierry Henry.
