Aaron Ramsey's well-taken goal capped a comeback from 2-0 down and ended a barren spell that stretched nine years back to 2005, bringing huge relief to Gunners supporters everywhere.
Manager Arsene Wenger went as far as to term the victory the "most important" of his time at the club, with all the pressure they had been prior to it.
"This was more important than all the others," he said. "We have twice won the double, but were not under pressure then like we were today.
"This is an important moment in the life of this team; to lose today would have been a major setback, but winning gives us a good platform to come back stronger next year."The Gunners had been in title contention and led the table for the longest period of any club, but faded away badly to finish fourth.
Supporters will hope the Frenchman's words prove true and that the FA Cup victory is the start of more to come, although the majority of Goal Singapore readers were not convinced.
In fact, 36.6% believe that the win was a one-off, with a further 34.8% indicating that it was possible to build on it - but only if further investment is made to improve the side. The remaining 28.6% were most optimistic, feeling that Arsenal can challenge better with their self-belief raised.
