Arsenal ends nine-year trophy wait
19th May 2014

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger felt Saturday's dramatic 3-2 extra-time victory over Hull which won the FA Cup at Wembley to end a nine-year trophy quest was the most important of all of his Arsenal honours.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey slotted home to complete a remarkable turnaround after the Gunners had found themselves trailing 2-0 inside the opening eight minutes.

Wenger had led Arsenal to the Premier League title undefeated in 2003/2004, and also won the Double twice.

Thousands of fans in London celebrated the victory at Arsenal's FA Cup victory parade. 

The last time Arsenal had won a trophy, George Bush was president of the United States and Twitter didn’t exist. But despite the long wait, Arsenal fans at the Tollington Arms in Islington were in confident mood even before the game began. 

“Today is the day we throw the shackles off. Today, nine years of pain, torment, agonizing struggles, today is the day,” said one fan at the Arms.
