I'm not English, but I did go to a couple of games when I lived in England. I went to a Crystal Palace game (can't remember against who, it was in the First Division), Southampton - Manchester United (because I was living in Southampton) and Manchester United - Sturm Graz (because I wanted to see Old Trafford).

I did enjoy it. And may I add: Van Nistelrooy is cool! He should make more goals with the Dutch team instead of with Man U...

I hereby appoint myself chief United hater but I have to say Ronaldo looks amazing, I've never seen anyone who can cross the ball like him without taking a touch. I don't know how disappointing he's been a lot of the time he's looked United's only dangerous player especially from midfield. Mind you someone now seems to have jogged Scholes' memory and told him you put the ball in the upright rectangle at the end of the pitch. Give Ronaldo a break he might be bloody ugly and a dirty cheat but he's one of the best players in the Prem. He's also been to Euro 2004 as well as the Olympics.
Mind you he doesn't look anywhere near as good as the mighty Robben.

Hey! A footie thread on a U2 board... perfect!!

Am a massive Arsenal fan.. have been for about god... since 1979 when most of the team was Irish (am from Ireland originally but now living in London).

As for current form.. man.. its frustrating... I think big problem is that Wenger stickts to the same group of first team players (pool of about 15) so that eventually they get knackered or are slightly off-form. At moment, Pires, Reyes, Toure, Viera, Henry (to a lesser extent) and Bergkamp are not playing well. On top of the injuries to Edu and Gilberto (although he has his knockers, since he has been injured, our form has dipped massively), Fabregas is only 17 and is clearly knackered - all factors affecting our form. On positive side, having Campbell back, and seeing Freddie approach his form of a few years ago is great. Wish wenger would put his trust in some of the fringe players like pennant, Van Persie and some of the reserves who will play against Man U tonight. They have proved they are good enough as they beat Everton first team 3-1 in previous round!

btw, Chelsea are looking unstoppable.. have a defence that does not look like conceding and having 2 wingers (Duff and Robben) who could wriggle out of a sardine can makes a huge difference to a team

Yo Party Boy!

I think Wenger is like ly to stick by the youngsters for the game tonight. Im a UTD fan btw (I can hear the jeers from you now!) but I still think the Arsenal kids will get the better of the boys in Red tonight.
But we have a chance, given we're probably gonna have a bunch, who, although dont have much top-flight action right now, have had enough to know how to handle the big games.
Im thinking of Howard/P.Neville/O'Shea/Brown/Fortune/Kleberson/Richardson/Fletcher/Eagles and David Bellion.
That's a lot of experience there, compared to a lot of Arsenal's team.
But Owusu-Abeyie(?)/Pennant/Van Persie/Clichy and Flamini have all impressed me so far! So who knows?

Man to watch (if he starts) is the young Forward Rossi. Who signed for UTD from Parma in the summer. Ive read some great things about him in the club mag and on the UTD tv Channel.

Sadly tho, my prediction is gonna be, 1-3 to the visitors - but Chelsea will win the cup!

You know, I really don't care about the Worthless Cup, but it is a good chance to see the youngsters on a big stage.

Just watched the game.. besides the cock-up after 18.6 seconds, there wasn't much between the sides, although both sides didn't create too much. Considering Man U. had a lot more experience in terms of first team games (Miller, Brown, O'Shea, Neville, Kleberson, Djemba x 2, Bellion, Fortune, Howard have all played more than any other Arsenal player on show tonight), I think Arsenal did pretty well, maybe besides Clichy, who, imho, is brilliant and should be playing on left side of midfield. Really really good player.

Still, you guys got Chelsea in semi's.. unless Ferguson plays a few more first teamers, there is only going to be one winner.

Btw, boo's to all Man U fans... meant as a mutual respect (but I can't get myself to say it!!)

It wasnt a great game at all last night. The goal was about the most exciting thing. Tim Howard made a couple of mistakes in the first half, that could've cost us dear, but thankfully didnt. Didnt like what Van Persie did to Richardson in the early stages of the 2nd half....no need really.
Arsenal certainly had the better of the us in the latter period of the game - but Chelsea next, and you're right Party Boy, UTD are gonna have to field a few regulars in the side if they want a result, cos Jose's taking this competition seriously.

Actually Jose doesn't have any choice but to take it seriously! He has so many players, putting out a reserve side would beat 95% of premier league. To put out players like Arsenal did last night, they would need to put out 3rd or 4th team.

As for Van persie, think frustration got better of him. Not a great moment for him. Think Ferguson should keep his mouth shut tho regarding asking FA to have look at incident. Talk about puttin oil on fire!!

I know I know....Fergie should just be pleased that we won, and leave it at that.

But we know what he's like

Royle is the Manager of the Month.

That means we'll lose 8-0 at Crewe this weekend.

Oh joy.
