In retrospect, the 2004/05 season for Arsenal was one of mixed emotions. While they could not defend their Premier League title, they did capture the FA Cup and continued to play some of the most attractive football in Europe. The season was also a precursor to more significant changes at the club, both on and off the field.
Premier League: Arsenal were unable to replicate their unbeaten run from the previous year. They finished second in the league, 12 points behind champions Chelsea, who were managed by José Mourinho in his first season in English football. Arsenal's domestic campaign was still strong, but they could not match the consistency of the previous season.
FA Cup Triumph: The highlight for Arsenal came in the FA Cup. They won the competition, securing their 10th FA Cup trophy by beating Manchester United on penalties after a goalless draw in the final. It was Patrick Vieira's last kick for Arsenal that sealed the victory, as the match ended 5-4 in the penalty shootout, with Arsenal's goalkeeper Jens Lehmann making a crucial save from Paul Scholes' penalty.
League Cup: Arsenal's younger players often featured in the League Cup, and this season was no exception. However, they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Manchester United, with a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.
UEFA Champions League: Arsenal reached the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League but were eliminated by Bayern Munich. They lost the first leg 3-1 in Munich and won the second leg 1-0 at Highbury, but the aggregate score of 3-2 was not enough to progress.
Squad and Key Players: Managed by Arsène Wenger, the team featured several outstanding players:
- Thierry Henry remained the star, finishing as the Premier League's top scorer with 25 goals.
- Patrick Vieira continued to be a dominant force in midfield, although it was his last season with the club before moving to Juventus.
- The defense still included the likes of Sol Campbell and Kolo Touré, with Ashley Cole and Lauren as full-backs.
- Young talents like Cesc Fàbregas began to emerge and show their potential.
Style of Play: Arsenal continued with their stylish, attacking play, with an emphasis on quick passing and movement. They were admired for their technical ability and the offensive quality they displayed on the pitch.
End of an Era: The season marked the end of an era in some respects, with the departure of captain Patrick Vieira in the summer of 2005. This was also the last season Arsenal played at Highbury before moving to the Emirates Stadium.
