Fcuking buzzing still. Don't know how I got home from the pub yesterday tbh. Rambo making Kanté look like Denilson on that game-winning goal.

Im delighted we won!

I watched the game back, we played so well in the first half. We struggled for about 20 minutes in the 2nd but otherwise we were great.

I just wish we were more ruthless and the result would have been aligned with the performance (Should have been 4-1 Arsenal).

We end the year on a high and I think this will help us recruit the players we need so fingers crossed we can build on this.

Ideally we would have a new manager but that is not going to happen now.

What a game!

Got family visiting me here in Toronto and we spent yesterday downtown in a British pub. No Chelsea fans in sight luckily and a few Gooners knocking about. Didn't fancy our chances at all going into the game and was so pleasantly surprised at how well we played. Chelsea were lucky it was only 2-1. Wenger got the tactics and team selection spot on considering the injuries we had and it was so satisfying to see the players really put the effort in when it mattered most. Every man played their part and given the quality of the opposition and the occasion, it was genuinely one of the best games I've ever see an Arsenal team play. Feels amazing to beat a big team in the final as well - it being Chelsea was an extra bonus.

In terms of Wenger and his future I'm still hoping he decides to call it a day and would love it if he decided to bow out on a superb high. He'll probably stay on I imagine and I'll be disappointed if so but whatever happens I just hope we can build on what is a great end to the season. Fully expect Alexis to leave so really hope we get good money for him and reinvest that pot into a quality replacement. Not going to worry about the future for a while though; fully intend to bask in the glow of this victory for a while yet.

I love this behind the scenes footage. The boys looked totally focused and prepared! Great to see big Sol, Keown and Little Mozart greeting and congratulating the players before and after the match.

This is amazing. I cried at the game yesterday. I cried watching highlights this morning and I've just cried again watching this. I'm an old man who should have grown out of feeling like this but I fvcking love arsenal.

Isn't it the Emirates FA Cup now?

Hence why we were given an easy draw up until the semis as it's clearly a conspiracy.

Fun fact guys: Ljungberg, Alexis, and Ramsey are three players who've scored 2 (cumulative) goals for us in FA Cup finals.

Reg Lewis scored twice in our 1950 win v Liverpool and Ian Wright scored in both the original game and the replay when we beat Sheffield Wednesday in 1993
