Since Wenger will obviously extend his contract and temptations for protests have reduced. I hope he doesn't take full advantage and sign a 2 year deal rather than 1. If he does sign a 2 year deal he should let it be known that after that time he will indeed retire
+1
I think he should indeed announce in advance when he is going to go. At least a few weeks before the end of the season.

But if he extends, it makes no real difference if he extends 1, 2 or 3 years. The important thing is that if it's already clear that it's his last extension, then the club should prepare it with conctacts for te right replacement... -> Lucien Favre would be nice!
The Best Of Arsenals On-Pitch Celebrations - Arsenal 2017 - FA Cup Champions

1:45 Coq cracks me up!
Community shield is Arsenal vs Chelsea again just like 2 season ago lol
I'm not just saying it cause it happened to us..raised this topic years ago but people said no cause we would have suffered

Do you think the fa should take a page out of uefa's book and make the fa cup champion the 4th ucl representative rather than 4th place. Thing about the fa cup is people aren't completely sold on it being a big cup.

I just feel like if it had such a reward there would be no doubt. Plus the idea of a championship side having a chance to represent england in europe without being in the top division excites me. Just think of the revenues those clubs would generate, it would be a huge game-changer.

The way it would work is 4th place would qualify for uefa only if the fa cup winner is not in the top 4. The league cup already rewards teams with europa (i think) so why not have the bigger cup have a better reward
+1
Instead of UCL, they need to make the community shield more meaningful rather than a glorified friendly that no one takes seriously other than Man Utd
+6
meh.. teams will be only half way into practice after vacation. community shield wont be more than a opening ceremony of the new season except for mou and manutd.
+3
Nah..community shield should remain the way it is..so teams use it as the last preseason game. It's just for me personally i think the fa cup needs something. The only times it's really exciting is when evenly matched teams meet in the final. When we beat aston villa i didn't feel like it was that big a deal
While a championship side would generate a lot of revenue, I don't think it would be good for England itself. English teams are already struggling in CL, and having a bottom team or a Championship won't help the case
fa cup rewards europa birth not league cup
Ya. That would put an end to the fourth place trophy Jokes
I disagree, I think people across the English game generally regard the FA Cup very highly due to it's historical significance. If I remember some years there were times that SAF seemed to value winning the FA Cup only second to the League title, and I'm including the Champions League in that.

And speaking of historical significance, the FA Cup is tied to the former Cup Winners Cup, which is now the Europa League. So there's some continuity there.

Also, you've got to consider the coefficient values that give England 4 places in the CL. What happens if one day the Premier League drops and only gets 3 CL spots. Does the FA Cup winner then take the place of the 3rd place team? Imagine another miracle run where Wigan gets relegated and wins the FA Cup, putting them in the Champions League over this season's Man City. That would significantly harm England's chances of regaining a coefficient spot and securing 4 rather than 3 teams, and that weakens the prestige of the Premier League as a whole.

If anything, to make the FA Cup more prestigious, which I already consider it to be, just scrap the League Cup or make teams field an Olympic-style U23 squad which is sort of how a lot of managers used to approach it.
+1
FA cup is fine just as it is. It would be considered a bit bigger if there was no league cup.
It would be considered bigger if there was more prize money, it's peanuts compared to the money teams make in the league. If it guaranteed CL more teams would take it seriously but it would be dumb for a non top team to win it and represent the country in europe.In other countries it's always one of 2 clubs that win, too many random teams make it to the final in england for me to be comfortable with that idea
anyway rosa is at the back door celebrating with the team.
+2
gotta simply love rosa, he's that father figure some players can truly benefit from. Hope to see him more often
Volleyball😂?
Naa Alexis just wanted the ball more
+2
http://big.assets.huffingtonpost.com/diving4.gif

This somehow reminded me of Moses
Being realistic though, it was a handball and an offside but regardless of that Arsenal were far superior to Chelsea and deserved to be 3-4 up before the first half.
what Xgoon said.. Just like Alonso wanted the ball more
it was handball and offsides, the worst part is the refs had time to think it over and still got it wrong lol.
^ because its not offside. Handball debatable
Ramsey went for the ball, he was offsides and interfering with play as per the offsides rule. You could see the confusion his precense caused when he and Sanchez both approached the ball. None of the Chelsea players reacted because Ramsey was offsides.

How is the handball debateable?
+1
I wish next season arsenal play most of their reserve in EL. it could be a very good opportunity for them to shine and gain experience. If the situation gets bad or we advance further into the competitin then we can add few first team players to help them.
Our main focus should be on Pl and then FA (make the record even better) :D.
I thought losing out on CL first time in who knows how long would be the catalyst of change at Arsenal, but I see some people acting like this is the place to be atm..

+4
What you mean?
we just won the FA Cup against the champion, mind you, against all odds. it was a superb performance by the team. what do you expect us to do? no matter which position we are in the league, we just won a trophy, that calls for a celebration.

what a ridiculous comment.
+6
Everyone involved with arsenal is disappointed to lose out on top 4, but a trophy is at least better than nothing dude. Stop pouring salt to wound
+1
I'm not. Just wondering if this turns into a "good enough" scenario once again.
obviously not for me, but i think im alone. We can't change what had already happened anyway, something is still better than nothing.
no this season was one of the worst I have in my memory. However, Winning an actual cup (and FA cup is not micky mouse cup, specially with the teams we have beaten) calls for being happy and celebrating. There should be something wrong with anyone who supports this club and can't enjoy winning a cup.
+3
winning a cup can still be under expectations that's all. For example I was frustrated that we didn't win the Coppa Italia under Conte when clearly we were the best team in the country.
^ Arsenal's point of view exactly.

chelsea was the best team in england atm, Arsenal just had its worst season under Wenger, but we still beat them. chelsea's fans are feeling the same way as you were, not to get the double when majority of people predicted they will have a walk in the park final.

so OF COURSE we were mad happy, celebrating our moment.
Nah all the fans should have just booed the team, after emphatic performance
Awesome win and what a performance, really has been solid number of weeks performance wise. Don’t want to spoil the party, but some of the arsenal fans around forums just can never be pleased. First we don’t spend enough, we don’t win trophies, qualifying for UCL is no achievement, the table flipped and all of a sudden the opposite is preferred and not making UCL is the centre of criticism.

It’s been a frustrating year, but I thought it’d be interesting to point a neat fact. Counting 4 biggest trophies (PL, UCL, FA,, EL) over the last 4 seasons (since we signed Ozil), we are ahead all British teams on trophies. With United being the only team to have a trophy in europe.

Arsenal 3
Chelsea 2
United 2
City 1

It’s no reason to be satisfied with not winning the biggest ones, on the other hand staying objective about club’s successes is important. Unlike the doom and gloom spread by many fans we are not doing worse than other English clubs, while arguably showing most consistency.
+1
Arsenal showed great desire, if only Wenger had the team playing with this much hunger all season, you guys would have won a PL title by now.


As for next season, you'd hope Wenger can stick to the back 3, you guys look so much better and wing-backs are seem more effective than wingers for Arsenal. Getting a B2B player in the MF that can play alongside Xhaka is must. A striker because I think Giroud is done and possibly a Sanchez replacement, if he leaves. Maybe a few more additions as well but EL gives the team options. If next season the club struggles in the PL, you can have El to fall back on to get UCL place. Although that will demand a bigger squad size and more games to play.
The new look of 3-4-3 looks crisp for us!!! Huge summer coming up, will see what happens
I have always maintained that midweek CL games were a hit on PL ambitions. The game has become more physically demanding in recent years. The fact that 2 last champions were free of european football is evidence to this argument. As far as Arsenal goes, we tend to run out of juice by the end of group stage, and never do well coming off the busy xmas schedule. A few signings and a right balance for midweek EL games could sure boost PL effort next year.
It is still a disappointing year, and the fa cup is to reduce the pain. My concern now is that can we keep our main man ?? It's different circumstances that we not making UCL next season and previous season, we are about to lose Alexis and ozil, and they have stated they want to play in elite competition. Quality players are hard to replace now with the fact that we have no UCL involvement and not paying much money like rivals did. This is the reason why I think we need the UCL this season especially to make sure Alexis stay. Of course I want to win the fa cup and I'm pleased the way we did.

Anyway, at least AW breaks the fa cup record, and he is on a high now. I hope his next move will bring benefits to the club
I might be alone on this but everyone on footytube puts the champions league as a God where no top player will play in a team that doesn't offer it. The desire to be so close to play in the champions league and not get it perhaps is a draw in itself to stay and know that you next season if as a whole you play harder that dream is a reality once again. Top players are not entitled to top competitions. Like everything in life, working hard and earning your fortunes is much sweeter than being given it.
+1
Is the Giroud assist for a Ramsey goal becoming a FA Cup Final special for us? xD
+4
I don't mind ;D
