A Long Awaited Final
a blog post by @DazzelChica10
Fans of other teams mock my enthusiasm, saying I shouldn't be happy that we could potentially win something after 9 years. I'm asked if I am happy about this trophy drought....am I happy? No I am not happy but I'm also not going to ruin this opportunity that has come knocking at our door. I will enjoy the final and our glory moment (if we should win it) and make the best of what we have been given.
Arsenal have had a long dry spell when it's come to trophies and finals. The last final we reached against Birmingham is better left unmentioned. I'm more optimistic about the upcoming final then I was about the Birmingham final....that was probably because I've never viewed the Capital One cup as a proper trophy.
The FA cup however is special and holds many fond memories for me. The first Arsenal final I really remember in great detail is the FA cup final in 1998 against Newcastle. I remember watching on TV at the young age of 11 and screaming my head of cheering the boys. The happiest moment being when Tony lifted the trophy for all to see.
I can't wait to sit down and watch the game and cheer the lads on. Even though it felt like we threw the league away on the final day of the season after City won it being top only 14 days whereas we were there for weeks! I will forget all the heartbreak during the last 9 years and concentrate on the final at hand.
If the result goes our way, it is safe to say I will be at the parade on Sunday!!!
What are your most memorable final moments?
