Hello there champions! Hello there twelve time FA Cup champions! Wake up you sleepy heads! If you are still hung over from last night’s celebrations, I regret to announce that we have more drinking to do – because today is our trophy parade! Congratulations Gunners. This was a well-deserved trophy and you should all be proud of yourselves.

I am not so lucky but I am really confident of getting an easy win for the Gunners and will be having a few bets to give me some added excitement.
