So Arsenal have won their second trophy in a matter months after going nine years without one – ehh that is of course if you count the Community Shield as a trophy. You do right?
Arsenal fans last year: "Community shields don't count as real trophies" Arsenal fans now: "Two trophies in two games" #Typical
Hmmm....the celebrations were a BIT much though, I mean you wouldn't see other teams going so crazy now would you?
We need some clarity here!
"This is *officially* a friendly but..." WE KNOW WHAT IT IS, WE WATCH IT EVERY YEAR WITHOUT FAIL

Either way, it seems Arsenal fans are feeling rather smug, especially when you consider comments made by a certain Mr Mourinho last season.
And we all know what happens when Arsenal enjoy some success.
With Arteta now confirmed as Arsenal captain, will he will be off next summer?

Still it was impressive enough to make one man wonder just what he had done.

There were a few big talking points from the match, with number three on this next list in particular grabbing people's attention.
Those Arsenal shirts simply cannot be comfortable to wear. They look like they've been vacuum-packed on.

But anyway, at least Arsenal could celebrate winning a trophy 'the right way.'

Maybe they should hold fire just a little bit.
What's always coming but never arrives? Arsene Wenger's next great Arsenal side. — Daniel Harris (@DanielHarris) August 10, 2014
Because after all…
