But then again Arsenal have already beaten Portsmouth 3-1, and they beat a tough Man City side 1-0 who beat Man Utd shortly after. I agree they still have to play the bigger sides before we can judge them. However, they've shown a few additional qualities that were lacking last season, not to mention Adebayor who looks like a different prospect this time around.

Wenger appears to have played his cards right by getting rid of henry as arsenal look like they are really gelling. however it's still early days plus arsenal haven't played any of the other big sides yet. i remember when my villa boys were top of the league at christmas a few years ago only for them to plummet down the table for the rest of that season

And arsenal have yet to face a team that will foul them hard throughout the game.

that's usually ManUtd's tactics. They go in and really dig into them for the first half hour and then hit them on the counter after they are a bit timid.

Aside from Blackburn, who are one of the most physically-minded teams in the Premiership.

Not really. I wouldn't say Man Utd bully teams in the same way as Bolton or Blackburn. I give them more credit than that.

Go back and watch the last several time that Utd and Arsenal have played. Give close attention to the game that we ended their winning streak a few years ago. We took the physical game right to them and they broke.

All bburn brings to the table is the physical, when Utd use it they can back it up with skill players to hit on the counter. That's the difference.

I did indeed..Arsenal beat Utd home and away last season. In fact in the away game it was Arsenal who appeared to wear Utd down and took them apart in the last few minutes to nick a 2-1 victory. The game that ended their winning streak (thanks notably to a dive from Rooney..) was back in 2004 so I'm unsure how that applies to the current competition between these sides.

That I do agree with. However, I wouldn't underestimate Blackburns attacking ability.

An actual quote from Ray Hudson calling the Barcelona-Zaragoza game yesterday:

"Lionel Messi...is fizzier than an Alka-Seltzer in a glass of Newcastle brown ale."

Hey, Dida, what the fuck?

That's some of the worst acting ever. A stretcher?! Is this idiot not aware of those funny things called cameras that are recording every second of the game from multiple angles?

Celtic will still be punished no matter what...an idiot fan got onto the pitch and did something stupid...we will probably have to play a game behind closed doors at the very least.

Seedorf said Dida was a bit dizzy
