Arsenal exhibited what was perhaps the most dominant display in a Cup Final in recent years, beating Aston Villa 4-0 on Saturday evening at the Wembley. The victory saw The Gunners lift the FA Cup trophy for the second consecutive year, having done the same in 2002 and 2003.
Until Saturday, George Ramsey – the legendary Scottish manager of Aston Villa – had the highest number of FA Cup titles to his name  after leading the Villa Park outfit through their most glorious reign in English football. At the time of his demise in 1935, Ramsey had won 12 major titles – with 6 League titles and 6 FA Cups – making him the most successful manager in the history of the club.
However, Arsene Wenger inspired his side to victory in the FA Cup for the second year running, thereby getting into the history books as the manager with the highest number of FA Cup triumphs in modern day football. From the look of things, the oldest and most prestigious piece of silverware in English football is Arsene Wenger’s favorite, as he won it for the first time back in 1998 after clinching the domestic double.
The French manager won it again in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014 and now 2015. Arguably, his most impressive FA Cup triumph has to be during the 2004-2005 season when Arsenal won the FA Cup and went through the Premier League campaign unbeaten, earning the tag: ‘The Invincibles’.
Sir Alex Ferguson is now second on the list, having won the FA Cup 5 times during his 27-year reign at Manchester United…
