The thinking then changed from how great football was to ‘How come I feel so sick?’, but then we kicked off, Liam Brady fed Graham Rix, he crossed for Alan Sunderland, United goalkeeper Gary Bailey was in no-man’s land, and at the back post the Arsenal striker scored the winner.
1980年: Arsenal 0-1 West Ham
West Ham were in the second division. I remember in the build-up, which lasted all day back then, they did an interview with one of the West Ham players (maybe it was Alan Devonshire), about how he’d become a professional footballer after spending 29 hours a day working down the mines, and when he’d come home at night he had drink a cup of sulphuric acid and his dad would kill him and dance on his grave and he’d have to get up the next morning and do it all over again.
Anyway, Trevor Brooking can still get stuffed, and the only good thing about this game wasWilly Young’s splendid tackle on Paul Allen。另外值得记住这个可怕的经验，随后几天后失去了优胜者杯决赛对瓦伦西亚（点球大战），然后布兰迪离开尤文图斯。啊。
1993年: Arsenal 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday
谁，在他们的脑子，持有一个星期六的下午求职面试？那么，爱尔兰独立，这是谁。相对刚从大学毕业我在新闻的资格我在中东修道院街一家酒店拍得能力倾向测试和面试，并用 - 在完全相同的时间作为杯决赛。杂种。我记得缺乏一些重点，因为我更感兴趣的是在温布利球场发生的事情，有没有办法找出当时要么，所以我完成了，只要我能和腿它到附近的酒吧搭上了最后20分钟。
I’d missed Ian Wright’s opener, and David Hirst’s equaliser, but no more goals meant a replay on Thursday evening, and there was no chance I was missing that.
I did not get the job.
1993年replay: Arsenal 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday
1998年: Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle
It was Arsene Wenger’s first full season in charge. Having already wrapped up the league with that super run of results at the end of the season, and that iconic 4-0 win over Everton at Highbury, it was a chance to repeat to double heroics of 1971. With no Dennis Bergkamp due to an Achilles problem, Chris Wreh was preferred to Ian Wright in the starting XI, but goals from Marc Overmars and Nicolas Anelka – on what I recall as the archetypal sun-shining Wembley cup final day – were enough to see off Newcastle.
Take that Alan Shearer!
2001: Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool
Freddie Ljungberg put us ahead, but thanks to the heroics of Liverpool’s goalkeepers Sander Westerveld and Stephane Henchoz the Mugsmashers stayed in the game. Then something awful happened late on and I’m not saying Michael Owen deserved the litany of injuries he sustained in the second half of his career just because he scored those two goals but that’s precisely what I’m saying.
温格的第二次足总杯获胜。“这只是Ray Parlour!’ moment from that Soccer AM gimp just before the Arsenal midfielder curled in the opening goal. Freddie Ljungberg leaving a young John Terry flat on his stupid face as he curled in the second, with Lee Dixon wheeling away in celebration behind the goal. So much fun.
2003: Arsenal 1-0 Southampton
An unlikely centre-half pairing of Martin Keown –who needed injections in his injections to play – and Oleg Luzhny highlighted the defensive issues we had in this game. There was no Sol Campbell due to suspension, no Pascal Cygan due to injury, no Patrick Vieira because of a knee problem, and David Seaman captained the team on his last ever Arsenal appearance.
Having endured an extremely painful end to the Premier League season thanks to results at Bolton and at home to Leeds, we had to salvage something from the campaign. A scrappy Robert Pires goal at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff was enough to win it, but then that was part of his brilliance. He could curl one in from distance, but if there was a ball rebounding around the opposition box, he was so often there.
2005: Arsenal 0-0 Man Utd – Arsenal win 5-4 on penalties
Still, we lined up with Pires and Jose Antonio Reyes either side of Dennis, a midfield of Cesc, Vieira and Gilberto Silva, with a back four of Lauren, Toure, Senderos and Cole. It was hard work though. We brought on Edu in extra-time, Freddie Ljungberg and Robin van Persie were also introduced from the bench, and Reyes was sent off right before the penalty shoot-out.
它是再合适不过了维埃拉的阿森纳最后一脚我们赢得了奖杯，但阿森纳的地点 - 踢的质量那天真是太棒了。我们可以？是的，我想我们应该...
Take that Tim Sherwood!
2017: Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea
A defensive injury/absentee crisis just before a final? Sure why not, we’re Arsenal. Laurent Koscielny was suspended after a red card in our last league game of the season against Everton; Shkodran Mustafi picked up a concussion; and Gabriel had an ankle problem.
The defensive trio were superb though, Holding getting right into Diego Costa early on, and a somewhat fortune Alexis Sanchez goal put us ahead in the 4th minute (a goal that VAR would disallow now). Costa equalised in the second half, after Chelsea had gone down to 10 men, thanks to Ospina’s chocolate wrists, but before they could even finish their celebrations, substitute Giroud crossed for Ramsey to do it again and head home the winner.
Here’s to making it 14 on Saturday.
