    Tony,

    For me the youngsters should only look at Emi Martinez as an example of what patience could yield.
    All in all a fantastic end to a really crazy season. I have been a fan since 1996( back then followed arsenal through newspapers) and have been privileged.
    Now hoping for our 14th title soon.

      Neil, why do I mention them: because they are relevant to the debate in that they are having an influence. AS to whether the mere mention of a group of people belittles anyone, such an approach to discussion, censors and reduces the discussion in an unnecessary way, in my view.

    Tony…………..another reason for the whiners and naysayers that reside in the bowels of the supporter’s dungeon to bemoan that we ¨only¨ won a measly FA cup in 2020 and that we are pure shite, finishing 8th and below Spuds once again. We real Gooners know that everything comes and goes in cycles and it feels to a lot of us that we are starting another ¨cycle¨ of success under Arteta. The players obviously love him and follow his tactical and strategic insights almost to the letter. The youth we are developing will blossom given the exposure they’ll have to international football once again in the Europa league and hopefully our dreadful record of serious injuries will start to disappear. We have Martinelli,Saka, Tierney, Ciballos, Mari, Martinez,Leno, Lacazette, Pepe (who was magnificent today), Reiss-Nelson, Saliba now, Willock, and of course Aubamayeng just to name a few. We aren’t at Liverpool’s level but they will inevitably be surpassed by other big money clubs who spend,spend,spend….something which AFC can’t and won’t do very often. We are in a far better position to develop ionto a solid top tier team once again and hopefully the backroom will support Arteta with both great tranfers and sales, intelligent scouting and monetary infusions where necessary.

    amen to that, tony – our future has hale end written all over it
    almost 50 years since i first saw arsenal win the cup; my parents had just bought the black-and-white tv set which allowed me to see charlie score the winner and lie spread-eagled on the wembely turf, in the same yellow and blue kit i had seen the team play in rouen a year and a half before (charlie didn’t play, that night)
    fa cup wins have had the very same inebriating flavour ever since

    black and white; yellow and blue – no cognitive dissonance, folks; the commentators always specified the colors of the team, back then!!
    happy celebrations, everyone

    The cup is always special.
    And now for some potential schadenfreude…if Wolves were to win the Europa Cup would that not put Sp*rs out of the competition?

    It Is a miracle we have won the Arsene Wenger cup despite the way we lost Kos Ramsey .Ozil being sidelined for unknown reasons.
    With the Pigmob favouring us a bit made things easy & we got lucky as well with Chelsea faced successive injuries. Not taking anything away from Arteta and his boys.
    Don’t forget to thanks Arsene Wenger to have left us with such a wonderful set of squad in , Mustafi Ozil, Bellerin,Xhaka,Auba,
    Laca & a youth team set up providing us promising talent every year.

    In the end my usual dig at the idiot fans at Aftv Arseblog Legroan who disrespcted our greatest manager ever did they get what they wished for? Where is the League title they promised us will come as soon as Wenger departs. It’s been 2 years and counting…..
    I am sure these idiot fans are missing the 4th place trophy but will they ever admit??

    I’m starting to love and respect Mikel as much as AW.
    This cup win was made possible by the manager. Respect.
    The only way is up!

    In terms of records I suspect only committing two fouls in the Final must be one. Not bad for the “dirtiest team in the league”. Another is maybe picking up a yellow with only two fouls committed…..but then that was for an “other” offence. Another record of course is that the final was the pinnacle of every referees career as they only ever got to do it once…….but wait they gave it to Taylor for the second time! We’ll get Dean next year no doubt. Taylor certainly will go down as incompetent on this performance though and no doubt pundits and other fans will remind us of how we won the competition because of favourable decisions lol.

    One record I love which maybe you haven’t spotted though. You mention that the Spuds have won it eight times. The great thing is, that since they last won it, we’ve won it NINE times 🤣🤣🤣

    Now, back that hangover……….
