As Arsenal embark on looking to break the 9 year trophy hoodoo and as Arsene looks to bring in the first major trophy since moving to The Emirates, today is a bittersweet day for me.
We all know how massive today is, and while Arsenal are major favourites we still have the shock that was Wigan beating Manchester City to win last seasons FA Cup fresh in our minds.
Make no doubt about it, Arsenal will need to be on top of their game to bring home the cup tonight.
But while usually I’d be checking all the latest news and build up and obviously watching the match itself, I have to go to a wedding today…
Which means missing the whole thing entirely!
I’m not looking for sympathy, but being an Arsenal fan for over 27 years now I realise that today is a significant day in Arsenal’s history, a day much bigger than potentially winning a major trophy. If Arsenal can overcome Hull City, then it would represent something of a new era. After 8 seasons without a trophy, today could be the catalyst for bigger and greater things.
Of course, if Hull City pull off a shock then it could still be a significant day in our history, but for different reasons.
Obviously I’m clutching at straws here, but if you’re watching the game and fancy updating me on the latest scores and incidents during the match, then you can tweet me here:
Bet this is the first time an Arsenal blog has asked for match updates isn’t it!
Anyway, I hope every Arsenal fan who is watching the game has a fantastic day and we all get what we want from the final.
All the best and COYG!
