Arsenal's drought is over.

Nine years after last lifting a trophy, Arsene Wenger and his Gunners won the FA Cup by outlasting Hull City in a thrilling final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. After falling behind 2-0 early in the first half, Arsenal forced extra time and got the winner from Aaron Ramsey in the 108th minute.

"It's a big, big moment of happiness," Wenger told reporters after the win, via The Associated Press. "We waited a long time for that. But the happiness is linked sometimes with the time you have to wait for it."
