If only Balotteli would have been sent of for that stamp on Parker. United played well today, hope Nani is fine. We might have picked up a few injuries today. Hope not though! Has Arshavin got a clause in his contract that means he has to play a certain amount of games and if he doesn't he gets a bonus. Because that would be the only reason why I believe Wenger would play him.
I think the Arsenal fans who booed Arshavin coming on should be ashamed of themselves. I'm no expert but when a player gets booed by his own fans, that's going to shatter alot of confidence from him and it clearly showed in his perfomance on the field.
I think they were more upset that Wenger was taking Chaimberlain off
Yeah I agree it was a poor decision from Wenger but still... for all we know Chamberlain could have picked up a knock. I guess we'll wait to see what Wenger's explanation is.
they have every right to boo him.. they pay to see him and he hasnt put in a gd performance all season.. also he came on for their best player at the time it was a poor decision from wenger
... cause he's been extremely mediocre ever since he arrived at the club. I'd rather see Wenger field players like Miyaichi and Chaimberlain, cause I feel they're already better than Arshavin, and they need all the experience on the pitch they can get.
Arsenal got man-handled by MU like usual. cant believe this used to be a big rivalry.
To be fair to Wenger it is a lose/lose situation. He plays the youngsters people say he needs to buy experience. He buys experience with the limited funding they have and people say play the youngsters. I'm a big fan of Wenger but maybe it is time for a change at Arsenal.
The ref would've had to be in a better position to determine if Balotteli deserved a red. Second, it didn't seem deliberate to me, might've been but there's obviously room for speculation.
Really? You don't think this http://i41.tinypic.com/1417... looked deliberate?
In the SkySports end game analysis they showed it was deliberate and that the ref saw it. Everyone agreed. What more do you want??? Thanks you Cyber for anyone who would have not seen it. Proving Gloomey is wearing blue tinted goggles!
he kicked out at him.. it was deliberate
Jesus there are some blind twits in here, Balotelli isn't even looking. "SkySports end game analysis they showed it was deliberate and that the ref saw it. Everyone agreed." WHO THE FUCK IS SKYSPORTS TO DECIDE WHAT IS INTENTIONAL AND WHAT IS NOT, JESUS. "ref saw it." OH I DIDN'T SEE ANY RED COMIN OUT O_o
You would say that, you only troll United articles. Anyone can see that if they just look at your comment history. You want to get a life.
Lol do you even have any logic to say he didn't intended, sorry but you sound like a 10 years old who don't know what they're talking about especially with the mighty CAP LOCK
"Jesus there are some blind twits in here, Balotelli isn't even looking."
Really dude? so by your standards, he has to be looking at the task at hand in order for it to be intentional.
so i guess when ronaldinho, messi, CR7 etc all make passes without looking they didnt mean to and their legs just knocked the ball out from under their feet without them knowing.
way to troll bro. who are you to tell skyports their opinion is wrong because it concurs with everyone elses.
United did play well. RVP got his customary goal but in truth the scoreline doesn't tell the story of the game. Arsenal had a few decent spells in the second half but for long long periods of the first half and too long of the second they were under the cosh and didn't get much together. They didn't look like the home side.
Countless time United got in behind them, in the first half it was cutting inside from the wings, in the second half Welbeck got in several times only to waste the pass with a poor touch or falling over.
It was a fair result.
Arsenal put up the best fight they could with their sideback problems, but United have a load of injuries too. Story of Arsenal's season really, just not quite in the fight.
He was lucky. Luck won't last for a whole season. Next time his off, and in the end United wins the title:)
good win in the end, i thought it was going to be a repeat of that fa cup final were we dominated them but squandered loads of chances and lost. i was delighted when wenger took of chamberlain and bought on arshavin though, probably won us the game.
We need our fullbacks back, both goals coming in from the wings proves it
VP missed a clear shot at an earlier tie, and then some. Could've been a closer game but I think United outplayed them.
Suppose it could be worse...I could be an Arsenal fan...
It is worse, you're a Liverpool fan.
Meh....AFC couldnt win the carling cup and it looks like they will go down hill from here...atleast we have the funding and a decent ambitious owner...
Are netspend under Kenny is only £38mil.
I reckon we could win the FA cup this season.
Haha.. coming from a manU fan
@neoragex The last time I checked, Manchester United was only three points behind table leader Manchester City.. so?
Very important victory tonight, well deserved as well:) City were lucky, but so were we.
In all fairness to Arsenal, they are doing ok considering the injury list they have. They haven't had a fit full back for ages now and both goals came from their weakness at full back.
Nani, Rooney and Phil Jones all likely to miss Liverpool vs Man United FACup 4th round tie through injury...what a shame.
Andy Carroll and Adam fit ... what a shame.
Oooo, what a buy for Liverpool! Kenny, what did you think?
I don't why are you happy about players injured even a player that play for your rival club, you are just sad
