Arsenal won by Aaron Ramsey’s extra-time goal. They ended Arsenal’s nine-year loss. But if we talk about the class story, we can see Arsenal almost still standing still. Anh even when they have 2 consecutive years of owning the oldest trophy in this world. During this time, Arsenal from the second position in the Premier League has dropped to fourth.
After 11 seasons, Chelsea from a club 50 years unknown to the throne of English football, has 4 times crowned. And they even won one Champions League title, one Europa League championship. Just over half a decade, Man City also twice had the honor of standing on the top of the Premier League. And Arsenal, that is by the other way.
During the last 10 Premier League seasons, the Gunners have never been in the Top 2. In those 10 seasons, Arsenal has never been considered a real candidate for the Premier League throne.
That’s what Arsene Wenger needs to think about. Arsenal could not be satisfied with just picking up the FA Cup, though it was of course still considered a title.
Why should Arsenal not be happy with the FA Cup championship? Both articles are directed to a goal called aspiration. Arsenal has never been a weak club. At any given moment, they have superstars who can shake the Premier League. But it seems that the lack of desire to fight has dragged the Gunners down in the deciding races.
It’s been a long time, Arsene Wenger has a new and potential player of the present. Hopefully, compared to the FA Cup throne last season, Arsenal will not consider the FA Cup championship a liberating title. It should only be considered a spiritual lever, a catalyst for Arsenal to seriously return to the goal of conquering the Premier League.
