    WORST team ever to win

    I agree completely with Marintii and Gunner-Getcha.

    I'm a massive Arsenal supporter (I don't like the word 'fan'... reminds me of sheep to the slaughter), but I think it is naive to think that Chelsea merely 'parked the bus'.

    If that was all it took, why have all the teams who tried to pack the defence against Barca not won? Over two legs!

    Also, where has the mentality that attacking prowess is more impressive than defensive prowess come from? It is so utterly utterly stupid! And it seems to be particularly rife only amongst football fans. That's like saying the boxer who dances around the ring the most is the better one... or the racing driver who performs the flashiest overtakes deserves to win the race... or the snooker player who performs the most trickshots is the superior etc.

    I love attractive football, really! That's one of the biggest reasons I love Arsenal... but to assume that it is the only or 'right' way = naive.

    Congratulations Chelsea and I think AFC as a whole could learn a thing or two from you this season - about resilience, character, coming back from adversity and especially, how to win.

    Accuse me of not being a 'fan' if you want... doesn't really affect the validity or otherwise of my point.

    • Well done Chelsea and you did deserve it.

      It doesn't matter how you win just as long as you win and as for being the first London Club to win it well done.

      As a Gooner I would obviously of prefered Arsenal to have done it but I cheered you boys on Saturday because I knew Spuds would be playing in the Europa cup if you won....lol

      Yes your journey hasn't been pretty, but who gives a hoot, you won it with the resources you had available and you should be commended for it, for a crap side you aint done too bad, FA Cup and the Champions league.

      This is where Arsenal need to learn how to win ugly and perhaps we wouldn't have gone so long without a trophy.

      Congratulations Chelsea!

      It's Arsenal's turn next year.............C'Mon you Gunners!
