I think it is time to call it a day, and watch the game from the stands.
Other clubs never came into my thoughts once I knew Arsenal wanted to sign me.
Plenty of players have impressed me
We created some chances in the first half and the sending-off made it difficult for us to get going. But we did and we got a goal. They equalized but we kept fighting and there was a good spirit. Maybe in the end we would have been happy with a point, with it being 10 against 11.

At the time I played with him (Ian),I didn't think I would ever play with another quite like him. I really didn't think that his record would ever be broken
If you look at the whole package, with what Thierry has, I don't think you can find that anywhere else. You give him the ball in the right place, and his acceleration will take him past any defender.
I feel we are getting better in that we are getting more experience in it
In Holland and Spain and France, where so many of us come from, people aren't interested in the sex lives of their players. We don't hear these stories - even in Italy where the media is right on top of football.
When you beat a team so often - especially like this season when Chelsea had already lost three times to us - you know people expect you to do it again. But you also know they're going to be even more motivated to finally win.
The regular things in my life now - training sessions and playing matches - will all fall away. That will leave a big empty space and it will need to be filled.
I love playing football, being out on the pitch with a ball, and I will be a little sad when that ends.
I just wanted to get back to playing attacking football after my time in Italy. It was a little difficult at first but the atmosphere and the fans were just fantastic.
Sometimes you feel the emotion. You think this might be my last pre-season or my last Champions League match. But, overall, those thoughts aren't important right now. But the time will soon come.
I think these awards are always nice for a player but they also reflect well on the club. It shows that Arsenal's performance have been noted all around the world and it helps by having so many good players around me.
