The Welsh midfielder claimed the winner as Arsenal came from two-goals behind before claiming a 3-2 extra-win over Hull City.

Ramsey's winner came just 11 minutes before penalties would have been needed as he swept the ball home following a neat back-heel from Olivier Giroud.

"It is mind blowing, I dreamt about this day as a kid and it hasn't quite sunk in yet," he told Sky Sports.

"I am more delighted for the team that we have won a trophy this year, we deserved it and the manager deserved it, he has stuck by his players after we were questioned a few times but he never had any doubt and we believed in it ourselves and hopefully this will be the start of many.

"I couldn't do this without my team-mates and I am delighted to be in this team."

Ramsey admits that getting back into the game quickly through Santi Cazorla after going two-behind - was crucial.

"We knew ourselves that Santi Cazorla's free kick was important and we had time to get back into the game but I thought we were in control," he said.

"In extra-time at 2-2, things go through your mind like penalties but it is important to keep going and I managed to get into the box and get that one."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
