LIVE BLOG END
Thank you all for joining me today, and during the entire 2012-13 Premier League season.
It's been a pleasure to bring you so many of Arsenal's games this year, and I've enjoyed every minute of it. Thankfully, I can end my last live blog of the campaign on a high note, as Arsenal are into the Champions League once again.
Don't even think about leaving Bleacher Report on this day, of all days. Our entire team of writers will be pounding away at their keyboards to bring you reaction to this and all other games today.
I'll be back shortly with ratings of all of Arsenal's players momentarily. Until then, have an excellent weekend, and an even better summer.
See you in August.
It didn't look like it was possible a few months ago, but Arsenal have knocked off Tottenham to finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League.
The Gunners put in a typically gritty performance to edge Newcastle 1-0. After Koscielny's goal, they simply shut up shop and did their job. Everyone around the club can breathe a huge sigh of relief, for Arsenal will dine at Europe's biggest table again.
Happy St. Totteringham's Day, everyone!
They've done it! Tottenham's win doesn't matter, as Arsenal qualify for the Champions League for the 16th straight season.
90+5' Corner Arsenal. Should be all but over now.
90+4' Less than 30 seconds.
90+4' Last minute, barring more added time.
90+3' Newcastle constantly on the attack, taking all day to set up each long ball. Free-kick to the Gunners, though.
90+3' Two more minutes.
90+2' Unbelievable! Walcott has an unbelievable chance and hits the post from point-blank range! Would have put the house on him scoring there. Drama still alive, wow.
90+1' Four minutes of stoppage time.
90' Tottenham have scored. Gareth Bale nets yet another stunner. All up to Arsenal to keep Newcastle out.
89' Arsenal substitution
Jack Wilshere replaces Santi Cazorla, who deserves all the plaudits in the world after a fantastic campaign.
88' Arsenal are conceding a dangerous amount of possession to Newcastle during these late minutes. The Toon don't really look like scoring, though.
85' Jack Wilshere is the last player warming up for Arsenal.
84' Arsenal get a corner kick after a swift counterattack resulting from a Newcastle free-kick.
After a bit of back and forth, Cazorla puts a decent shot wide.
81' Newcastle substitution
Adam Campbell replaces the excellent Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.
80' Two updates:
Fernando Torres has scored for Chelsea, all but wrapping up a third place finish.
James Vaughan has been sent off at White Hart Lane, giving Arsenal even more incentive to keep their 1-0 lead.
78' Arsenal substitution
Olivier Giroud relieves Lukas Podolski. Arsene Wenger answers one part of my question.
77' It'll be interesting to see how Arsene Wenger uses his two remaining substitutes with only about 15 minutes left. Arsenal are working extremely hard to keep Newcastle out, but risk inviting unnecessarypressure.
74' A much more subdued atmosphere at St. James' Park now that Arsenal are playing to preserve their fragile 1-0 advantage. Olivier Giroud and one other player, who identity I will attempt to ascertain, are warming up on the sideline for the Gunners.
70' Lukas Podolski wastes a great free-kick on the right side of the box by slamming it into the wall. He tracks the ball down, and after Arsenal knock it around a bit, Theo Walcott blasts a shot over the bar.
66' Newcastle substitution
Sylvain Marveaux comes on for Yoan Gouffran. Gouffran's last contribution was to nearly score before becoming entangled with Per Mertesacker on the edge of goal and committing a foul on Laurent Koscielny.
63' Laurent Koscielny has been absolutely excellent today. He scored the goal, of course, but he seems to be everywhere at once in defense, and is constantly throwing himself around to make crucial challenges.
Difficult to see Thomas Vermaelen regaining his place if he can replicate this in three months.
