Astonishingly, it all went to plan.
Spurs lost 2-1 to West Ham after eating some dodgy lasagne (ahem...) and the Gunners beat Wigan 4-2 to pinch fourth spot and enter the 2006/7 Champions League (admittedly in the qualifying rounds against Racing Talinn and AFC Moldova but who cares...)
A fitting result for the last game to be played at Highbury.
It may also help Thierry to decide to stay - a good article here about the various arguments for and against.
Finally, we have the small matter of the final of the Champions League 2005/6 on 17th May in Paris. Arsenal v Barcelona - the purists final!!
