PHOTO: Arsenal star shows off the boots he hopes will bring FA Cup glory

Aaron Ramsey has been the most integral cog in the Arsenal machine this season. Now he wants an FA Cup medal to polish off his great campaign.


These are the boots that Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be wearing in the FA Cup final tomorrow. The adidas pair feature the Welsh crest and the player's name - as well as a permanent reminder of when he wore these little beauties.

Ransey has arguably been Arsenal's best player this season and since his return from injury last month they have looked back to their best - his goal against Norwich on the final day of the season a testament to his magnificent campaign. But it will count for little without silverware at the end of it all.

Arsenal face perhaps their most important cup final in their history this weekend as they welcome to Hull City to London in the FA Cup swansong.

The Tigers are hungry for their first ever major domestic trophy while Arsenal probably feel like a life-time since they last lifted silverware.

This game represents their best opportunity in the nine years since they last lifted an award, but then again, we all said the same thing before they took on Birmingham City in the League Cup final of 2011.

For one player Wembley has not been kind to him. Aaron Ramsey was injured for that game in 2011 but in 2008 he played in the FA Cup Final for Cardiff City - a game they lost 1-0 to Portsmouth.

And he has been speaking about this weekend's opportunity for retribution:

"I have had a disappointment at Wembley in a final before with Cardiff and hopefully this time it will be different. It is really exciting for us, and it is where we want to be, competing to win silverware and we have a big opportunity to do that."
