Aluko from a tight angle... just wide! Mertesacker heads away, and he needed every inch of his height to get to that one. Oh, and soldiers.
Desperately hoping gunners will bounce back from big stage nerves . Arsenal have been winning ugly games all season. So too did the first 15 minutes of the second half. Wow, what a final this could be....</noframe> 13 min Alex Bruce with a header! Meyler shoves Cazorla in the area from behind, and Cazorla can't believe that's not been given, can't believe in a universe where that's not given, can't conceive of a God that would allow no penalty to be given. Arsenal going 4-4-2! The point at which Arsenal finally cast off the sackcloth of nearly-men, and marched confidently into the light. 107 min Wilshere with a little dart into the area. It may not be the prize they set out to win at the start of the season, but for their long-suffering fans, it would be vindication for those long years of suffering, the financial strictures imposed as a result of building their new stadium a decade ago, and some small redemption for their respected but oft-ridiculed manager, a man who has cleaved to his philosophy like a zealot, and today could reap the ultimate reward. The Cup being carried by a sailor. Took too long over it, and Rosenior ain't happy at the far post. Early black mark against Lee Probert, but the fundamental fact is that Arsenal just haven't turned up so far. 30 min Huddlestone with a foul on Ozil. More soldiers.

Extra time beckons.
It's a positive season, and we're going to celebrate now. That's the only way to prevent Arsenal getting embarrassed. writes: "Every man and his dog gave Jull no chance in hell today. Giroud found Podolski on the left with a good diagonal ball, Podolski cut it back and Ozil got ahead of Chester, but even though it was on his favoured left foot, he couldn't make contact.
I forget his hit song though.". These are turning into very long minutes. Drums. Hull need a new trick in extra-time.

"Every defeat is a scar on your heart that remains for life," Wenger says.
