A tumultuous 2014 FA WSL season comes to a close with the Arsenal Ladies notching a lovely come from behind win to ensure a fourth place finish in the league for the first time in club history. Fourth is the worst ever finish for the Gunners in FA WSL, but while it may seem like a disappointment, fourth isn't a bad place to be after a horrendous start to the season.

One overwhelming note to take from this season is that Jordan Nobbs is quite good at this soccer thing. Perhaps if she hadn't been dealing with injury at the beginning of the season this team could have finished at least one spot higher in third, where they finished last season. But we aren't here to play the what if game, there is still one more match to be played for the Ladies.

Up next, they'll take on Manchester City in their fourth consecutive Continental Cup Final, looking to win their fourth consecutive Continental Cup. Man City finished the FA WSL season fifth on the table, but played a big part in the final day of play. With their win over Chelsea, the goal differential atop the table shifted in favor of Liverpool. This meant the Reds won their second straight FA WSL title. Liverpool is now tied with Arsenal for most FA WSL titles, and they are the only two teams in the league to ever take home the hardware in its four years of existence.

It will be interesting to see how the Ladies look going into next season, with a full offseason under head coach Pedro Losa on the agenda. Hopefully it won't involve selling most of the squad's best players like we saw last time around, but one never knows. Of course we'll have coverage of the Continental Cup final and any offseason moves the Ladies have right here on TSF. Onwards and upwards from here my friends.
