Post Season

Saviola reproduced his astonishing goalscoring form by scoring 43 goals in 36 matches. Henry followed up with 28 goals, while Calaio and Cassano got 20 apiece. Pablo Aimar had a stunning form last season, scoring 23 goals from midfield. He even finished second in the league scoring tables, proving his worth of £12 million. David Noble scored 13 followed by Joe Cole (12), Greening (11), Barrett (9) and Van der Vaart (8). Michael Clegg, Jonathan Woodgate and Clint Hill scored one each.

The Reserves had a good season nonetheless, finishing with 14 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats. Marcus Benson (5) was the top-scorer followed by Adam Fleming and Craig Flynn with 3 each. I decided to promote Craig Flynn and Anthony McCann to the first team next season.

More good news, Arsenal unveiled their £120 million high-tech training facility at London Colney. This facility includes 4 training pitches and 1 for the Reserve League and Arsenal Ladies matches. A state-of-the-art treatment room for minor injuries and a hydrotherapy room for muscle fatigue. A secondary school has been provided for the young trainees and we have also included 2 blocks of hostel for the boys and 1 for the girls. This project is in-lined with Arsenal's objective of producing more talents for the club and country. Nike has decided to come up with a sponsorship deal for Arsenal at all footballing levels including the Arsenal Ladies squad and Under-21 Arsenal Ladies.

An Arsenal player finally won the FIFA World Player of the Year Award when Antonio Cassano picked up the coveted prize. Joe Cole came in at second place. Saviola won the World Footballer of the Year Award again whereas Calaio finished third. Antonio Cassano picked up another award, winning the European Player of the Year Award. He held off the challenge of Henry and Calaio who came in second and third respectively. Javier Saviola won the South American Footballer of the Year award for the third time in a row. Sebastien Frey won the Goalkeeper of the Year award for the third time too. Rio Ferdinand finally overcame Jonathan Woodgate to win the Defender of the Year award. Woodgate and Clegg came in at second and third respectively. Antonio Cassano swept to his third title by capturing the Midfielder of the Year award.
