The last time Robert Pires played for the Gunners was in the 2006 CL semi-final against Villareal.
He was substituted by Wenger following Lehmann's red card. It was a defining moment in his career. Now he faces fans that remember him fondly from those wonderful seasons of sublime football that he gave to the club that he still loves.
Pires says that if he scores a goal, he will not celebrate in deference to the club and its fans, who have meant so much to him.
A bit of a jaunt down memory lane. It reminds us of Pires amazing finishing abilities, of an Arsenal that provided an exclamation point to all that intricate play.
