Arsenal's FA Cup exit was equal parts unlucky and heartbreaking

Poor Gunners.

Here's Watford FC's winning goal against Arsenal in their FA Cup quarterfinal.

Amazing. Adlène Guedioura has hardly done anything this season, but he found a way to uncork this stunner against Arsenal.

Here's Arsenal's best chance -- or series of three chances -- to equalize and force a replay.

OUCH. Arsenal were trying to become the first team in the professional era to win three straight FA Cups, and the first professional or amateur team to pull off the feat since 1878. They're about to get knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Barcelona, so their only chance at silverware this season is to make up an eight-point gap to Leicester City in the Premier League. It's been a pretty miserable season for the Gunners, and they're running out of ways to save it.
