David O'Leary broke the Arsenal all-time appearance record when he played his 622nd game in their 4-3 win over Norwich City.
The game ended in controversy, though, after a mass player brawl followed Lee Dixon's stoppage time winner, but afterwards referee George Tyson said he would NOT report the incident, despite the intervention of several police officers.
"It was all over before it started - it was a game of football and I enjoyed it," he said.
