In this sense Arsenal F.C. is not lacking and has quite a few. Let's see :

1930-31, 1932-33, 1933-34, 1934-35, 1937-38, 1947-48, 1952-53, 1970-71, 1988-89, 1990-91

Cup Winners Cup Winners:
As you can see Arsenal F.C. has it's trophy room full, making it the most important club in London and one of the most important in England and Europe. Amongst it's feats is having won the "Double", that is winning the League and FA Cup in the same season, becoming in 1971 only the second team to achieve the "Double" in this century. It is also the only team to win the FA Cup and the League Cup in the same season.
Another great Arsenal feat is having maintained itself in the 1st Division, now called the Premier League, since it achieved promotion in 1919. While all the other League clubs, including the great and famous ones, have had stints in the lower divisions, Arsenal mantains itself with pride in the top division of English professional soccer for the last 77 seasons.
Cheers Arsenal, for your triumphs and your feats !
