ARSENAL IN YEARS GONE BY

2003:

Dennis Bergkamp says he may carry on playing after this season - despite previously saying he was definitely going to hang up his boots next May: " It's strange because you would expect to feel a bit different physically when you get to a certain age, but I honestly don't feel any different from when I was a young player." The funeral took place of former Arsenal striker Joe Baker, who died on 6 October from a suspected heart attack while playing golf. He netted exactly 100 times in 156 appearances for the club during the 1960s.

1997:

David Seaman, Tony Adams and Ian Wright help England to qualify for 1998 World Cup finals with a 0-0 draw in Italy. Meanwhile, their former Highbury and international team-mate David Rocastle is helping his new club, Hull City of the Nationwide League Division Three, to a 3-0 home win over Scarborough. The Tigers remain the 91st-ranked club in England. "A few eyebrows were raised when I came to Hull... but it's been a breath of fresh air," said Rocky.

1988:

Paul Davis scored one and set up the other as the Gunners beat Manchester United 2-1 in the final of the Mercantile Credit Trophy at Villa Park before starting a nine-match ban for punching Southampton's Glenn Cockerill. Meanwhile, David O'Leary is angry at losing his place in the team to new signing Steve Bould: ``I have three years of a very good contract left. I am Arsenal through and through and I want to finish my career here. But I'm not sure how long I can sit it out."
