@Conway17. Thanks for pointing out the hammerings arsenal have received this season, you must have written that idiotic grin on your face. Please tell us about the season when the second coming of dalglish and the pittance( around 100 million) your club spent on winning the league cup. Did your angry self celebrant that glorious achievement ? Or did you highlight the overspending and 6th position in the league. Hmmm

Any rant from a Liverpool fan that carefully glosses over the fact that Arsenal beat Liverpool, on their voyage to be FA Cup champions can be, completely ignored!

Conway....you Liverpool fans really are tiresome...one good season (where you didn't actually win anything I may add) and you think you can comment on every other club. The big defeats haven't been forgotten as quickly as the two defeats you suffered at the hands of arsenal this season... We celebrated a cup win after we'd won it, you guys were celebrating a league win with 4 games to go....and everyone else was laughing at the end of the season. Next year you won't even make top 4 cos you'll actually have to play more than 50 games.

Will someone else, preferably a Liverpool fan, tell @conwayt1 how bitter, stupid an childish he sounds,and how embarrassed you are to be associated with the same club as him.

Still Not Impressed I've been baited hence I must respond. First off, Congratulations to Arsene for equalling the monumental achievements of Harry Redknapp and Alex McLeish in winning one domestic cup in 10 years. To achieve this against all odds, and against the mighty Hull is some feat! This of course, banishes eternally the argument that he can't win against big teams and the 6-3, 6-0 and 5-1 defeats are forgotten!  I have a quote for you all: "There are two trophies. One is the league and the other is the Champions League. When you go to sign players they do not ask "how did you perform in the FA Cup?"  Who said this? Arsene Wenger did! Then there's the assertion that winning the FA Cup will attract top signings. (Yet , I thought the 4th place trophy was supposed to attract the best?). When will Xavi be having his medical at Wigan then? They won it last year didn't they? A club with a wage bill over £150mil a year, a manager that's earned over £60mil in wages these last 9 years and the most expensive ticket prices in Europe...and the FA Cup is being celebrated like it was the World Cup itself! Look well done for winning it. This in the grand panorama though, changes nothing at all. Wenger isn't good enough, and all he's managed to do is finally match Wigan 'a achievements (Wigan beat a serious team in the final too). So with all due respect: if a FA Cup win is the elixir, does this mean we accept that Portsmouth and Wigan had been more successful teams than Arsenal until Saturday?

wonder if he'd feel the same way if he wasn't a white, non-jewish heterosexual male. Because Mackay has basically insulted everyone else!
