London—Sammy had to leave for Wembley a year ago for the FA Cup final came, which is a great experience so fraught with tension that gave him stomachache. Sammy understands that really comes with the Gunners fandom territory. However, this time he was determined to have lots of fun and he has dressed the part. The word “Arsenal” was adorned with balck magic marker on his forhead and he had full Gunners kit right down to the fluorescent pink and purple boots, the sort that Alexis Sanchez has been popular to run riot in. and, for sure, he wore yellow ribbbon, which denotes an Arsenal which goes back in 1971 when Arsenal first sported their yelllow jersey in FA Cup fianal match.
Even costlier that his uniform, though, was the absolute command of The Gunner’ mocking anthem. Throughout the course of the game while the goals were indeed gloriously piled up and the quiet in Villa end grew more funereal. When Theo Walcott scored the first goal in minute 40th, and Tim Sherwood, Villa’s manager, who grew an Arsenal supporter, shook his forehead in hatred, Sammy shouted “Sherwood is Gooner”. At 2-0 he could be heard demanding Aston Villa the cruelest of all inquiries “Are you Spurs in disguise?” as far as Sammy is joyfully concerned, making use of all the wisdom he has amalgamated in his lifetime, Arsene Wenger is a real specialist in silverware.
That was a day fraught with the type of rioted pleasure which is usually the province of kids’ memory. Whatever FIFA-influenced toxic fumes wafted over the game were blown away in blur of relentless offending panache by Arsenal side that were on the grandest of England soccer stage. The Gunners’ triumph marked a record by which the Arsenal won the FA Cup for 12th time. For Arsenal’ fans older than Sammy that had endured nearly ten years of trohpyless enigma till last season’s aneurysm-sparking 2-goals-down-after-8-minutes FA Cup final win over Hull City, that recall triumph was in the air proving that establishing a balanced squad will end up with league titles. Unlike the exorcism last year, there was no exigency to toss Arsene Wenger into the air so as to remind the world of football that the coach, for all his tactical adeptness and urbane eloquence, cold win in the big occasions. Arsenal finished thirteen places and 37 points ahead of Aston Villa in Premier League table.
