Will Arsenal’s Three Millionth Trophyless Minute Be Their Last?

By Chris Wright of WAATPies


By the time that the Carling Cup final kicks-off this Sunday afternoon, 5 years, 9 months, 6 days and 15 hours will have elapsed since Patrick Vieira sidled up and stroked his penalty past Roy Carroll to win the FA Cup for Arsenal.

It would prove to be Vieira’s last act as Arsenal’s standard-bearer and captain, as the Frenchman duly departed for Juventus a month later – a move which, with the application of perfect 20/20 hindsight, effectively brought down the curtain on the club’s glorious domination over domestic proceedings during the first half-decade of the 21st century.

Over three million minutes have drifted away, up and out into the cosmos since that final in Cardiff back in May of 2005.


Vieira is a spent-force conversely winding down with newly-aspirational Manchester City, Arsenal have hauled up their roots, converted the site of their old library into people storage and moved into a bigger place down the road, Arsene Wenger’s hair has passed through the ‘greys’ and is now approaching the ‘silvers’ and yet that darned FA Cup is still the most recent addition to their groaning trophy cabinet.

Rosmah has very clearly got her priorities all mixed up as the wife of the most powerful man in the country.

Bangang! Pelan2 tak boleh ke???
While Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s wife Rosmah Mansor regaled her foreign “first ladies” at a lavish “First Ladies Summit” in October last year, the Penan Support Group (PSG), a coalition of 36 NGOs in Malaysia, put up a page on Facebook under the name “Penan Support Group Education”, calling for funds to set up pre-schools in the interior of Sarawak for the underprivileged Penan children.
