Welbeck wants cup win

Danny Welbeck says he’s hoping to add the FA Cup to his medal collection this season, as Arsenal continue their defence of the trophy against Middlesbrough on Sunday.

The striker has Premier League and League Cup winners medals from his time at Man United, but with the Gunners hoping to win back to back FA Cups for the first time since 2002/3 🙂 1930s when they achieved a hat-trick of triumphs, the England international is determined to play his part .

“It’s a special trophy to win and I’ve not had the joy of winning it,” he told Arsenal Player.

“It’s something that I really want to do. It’s great to have that on your CV and you just want to keep on winning because once you get into the habit, it’s good to keep going.

“It’s always meant a lot. Growing up as a kid we always knew the FA Cup was such a historic competition and it’s up to us to keep that going. I’m sure it will and it will live on forever.”

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has hinted that new boy Gabriel will make his debut for the club against Boro, saying he was ‘very close’.

He also talked up the qualities of the former Villarreal man, saying, “He’s a player who has the ability and likes to defend – it’s more and more difficult to find people like that.

“He’s a player who has good qualities – he has good pace, he’s good in the air and is good in one against ones.

“It’s better I don’t talk too much, let him play and he can show how good he is.”

If we win this year, we become the most successful FA Cup team, and Wenger will become the most successful FA Cup manager. Let’s do it!

Welbeck wants to win something? I’m other news waters wet and grass is green

Perry S.

close, but grass can be brown or yellow, so there’s that…

Parisian Weetabix

There’s no disputing he’s other news though.


And the grass is always greener on the other side because some other bugger has to mow it

Didn’t we win it back to back in 2001/2 and 2002/3? I’m pretty sure we did.


We won the FA Cup in 2002 and 2003. Pretty sure that counts as “back to back”




I hate Mourinho he’s such a cunt!


Arsenal 1 boro 0….woodgate OG in the 97th minute!

karl humby

wo wo wo, did we not win back-to-back fa cups in 2002 and 2003 against chelsea and southampton respectively??


“but with the Gunners hoping to win back to back FA Cups for the first time since the 1930s when they achieved a hat-trick of triumphs”

01/02 and 02/03?

that ’03 FA Cup win has a weird legacy, like it never happened. It’s like a phantom trophy in our history. Even though his dreaminess scored the winner!

We ignore it because the League should have come with it that year!

Hi Arseblog
Love your blog and news, but when you say ‘Gunners hoping to win back to back FA Cups for the first time since the 1930s’ you are forgetting 2002 & 2003.


Oh dear Arseblog! You do write great articles but trophy stats aren’t your thing! We won League ‘back-to-back’ in 30’s not FA Cup but we definitely have won back-to-back FA Cups this Millennium! I was there for the Double-winning victory over the pre-financially-doped Chavs in ’02 & the trophy retention over So’ton in ’03! Have you could you forget?!! 😉


John terrys a cunt

Ouch! Very very slow news day. So slow that blogs is beginning to forget history. Yikes!!!

Andrew Leahy

Yep have to argue John Terry is a absolute cunt!!


Caught in two minds between whether I want united to get knocked out by a “lesser” side and make our job a lot easier, or I want them to go all the way to the final so that dat guy can a hatrick to give us the trophy that way. Decisions.


I’d settle for United getting humiliated now before Welbeck scores a hattrick at Old Trafford to knock them into the Europa League and secures 3rd for us.


You’re never alone with schizophrenia


Utd getting beat is always good lol but with our inability to beat the worst manure side over the past few seasons is a concern so I hope they get turned over way before the final!!!

death himself

Lord of the arse is fishing with the successive fa cup wins bait. Should have been 3 in a row too. Owen cunt. Henchoz cunt. Carry on.


Looking at that picture, I can’t help but think about how intimidating Giroud would look at CF if he shaved his head, grew a handlebar mustache and never, ever smiled.


I hope we need to go through United, preferably in the final. Our record vs United is not very good, but im confident we can beat them. I would prefer beating United in the final rather than Blackburn or Preston. The taste of victory would be that much sweeter then.

Nacho de Montreal is tasty

Welley, score goals and you will win this trophy, I swear.

let the angel Gabriel come down and reign over boro,


Liverpool will be the team to beat imo, not Manure.


unleash the Angel of death, North London’s very own! COYG

First part of that, fine.

Doesn’t the second part of that affect your sex life?
