    Every goalkeeper will have one of those in a season, and it's just a shame that his has come during the biggest match of his career on potentially the biggest stage he'll ever step on.
    Indeed, and it definitely doesn't help that it caused them to lose the match

    Reading can certainly be content. Especially given their dreadful league form currently. Their season will peter out now. That's a shame for them, but the experience of Wembley today will hopefully propel them next year to a comfortable mid-table position in the Championship.

    Yeah I reckon this could be the start of a good spell for Reading.

    ****. Just realised that with an fa cup final will probably come another awful cringeworthy "we are the might arsenal and we're going to Wemb-er-ley" video :eek:

    Ah well, at least there won't be Sagna or Verm bringing the whole performance down, although no jenko either

    You'll hold Chelsea to a draw as well as United imo. Winning the FA cup and finishing second should be seen as a good season especially after your horrible start to the season.

    3 horse title race next season imo.

    really dont know about next season to be honest..

    I never predicted chelsea would be so dominant this season (after last season was such a 4 team race for most of it)

    But yeah.. trophy and 2nd is good..

    Honestly think the most likely scenario for us is drawing against chelsea, and loosing to you guys at OT - which would give you 2nd.. (presuming all other games are won)

    In my opinion it would've just topped off a pretty crap game for arsenal, they just weren't playing to their usual standard

    right.. well.. now time to actually find out how things went yesterday..

    How badly did we play?

    Seemed like ozil did well? and sanchez now has 22 goals + 11 assists for the season :eek:

    So what went wrong that meant we could only score 1 goal in 90 minutes against an out of form championship side?

    Maybe Reading just "wanted it more" (even though them reaching the final means them qualifying for Europe if Liverpool also made the final and finished 6th in PL)
    And league form is irrelevant, Portsmouth reached the final in the season they were relegated from PL

    The players just weren't up to it I guess. By no means were we dominated or Reading were half as spectacular as people are trying to make out but our attacking play really lacked. It felt at times we reverted back to our defensive possession from last season which I was disappointed to see.

    The overall play was very slow/lethargic. Bar for Alexis who never stops as it is but the game was dying out for Walcott as we struggled to get behind their defence often. I'm not really sure why Ramsey is being put out on RW either.

    We'll draw to Chelsea most likely, 0-0, or lose 1-0 after Bellerin gets skinned by Hazard and Mert gives away a pen or something stupid. On the flipside Mou might just feel the league is already won and really go for it to humiliate Wengs, but I can't see it happening. I don't know whether it's just out of hope, but I get the feeling Fabregas won't start, much easier for Mou to play Zouma and Matic holding with Oscar Willian and Hazard and just say Fab wasn't in the right frame of mind (which he probably won't be). Probably completely wrong and he'll score a hat-trick or some bull**** like that.

    What showed most yesterday was how important our fullbacks are; Gibbs was ****e and Debuchy got skinned more times than I care to remember, although it's his first game back in months and only his 15th of the season, so it would be really unfair to judge him on that game. Wenger's fault for playing him in such an important game. Both Gabriel and Kosc showed they're decent in 2 v 1 situations which is promising as there's likely to be plenty of them next week.

    mert will most likely be out for chelsea and probably longer, left wembley in a boot last night and wenger said it didn't look good. would rather have bellerz in for debuchy next week too, might as well go and give them a game.

    Bellerin will be absolutely shredded by Hazard. Debuchy's fit so I see no reason not to play him.
