All Arsenal fans everywhere probably breathed a big sigh of relief as Arsenal cruised to a 4-0 victory in the FA Cup Final on Saturday, and there was no sign of any nerves at all from the players, but Arsene Wenger admitted to a few nerves himself and that a defeat would have been a disaster for his side.
The Arsenal owner, or majority shareholder to be more precise, put in a rare appearance at Wembley today and was clearly delighted at the end of the FA cup final which saw the Gunners take Aston Villa to pieces with surgical precision.
Just as expected, Arsenal began the first half with a bit of caution just to make sure that we were not left chasing the game as we had to in the final last season. But Aston Villa never really looked like scoring once, never mind twice, and so the Gunners soon got into our stride.
Arsenal might lose the FA cup final you know by DN
Okay so Arsenal have already beaten our FA cup final opponents Aston Villa twice already this season and the aggregate score between the clubs is 8-0. And with the Gunners being the holders of the FA cup trophy as well, many Arsenal fans seem to think that all we have to do is to turn up and collect the silverware.
You could not really say that Arsenal have had it all our own way in our recent appearances at Wembley Stadium. The Gunners have needed extra time in all three of the games played at the home of English football in the last couple of years and we even had to endure the tension of a penalty shoot out in the semi-final against Wigan Athletic last season.
Wenger has a little keeper problem for the FA Cup final by KM
Hello folks. There’s a huge debate round which of Arsenal’s goalkeepers should come in for the FA cup final. Every way you look at it this is the most important game of our season, so we might want to look at which keeper will bring in to give better confidence to our back line.
Look, as the Arsenal manager is so fond of saying, if it meant playing a significantly weakened side in a Wembley final that could see Arsenal and Arsene Wenger make FA cup history, then there is no way that Theo Walcott would be in the starting XI to run out onto the hallowed turf on Saturday evening.
Not only did Alexis Sanchez win over the Arsenal fans with his brilliant debut season as a Gunner, he won over the football media and a lot of fans from other clubs as well, highlighted this week when he was voted as the Premier League Player of the Year by the fans.
