Fergie In Talking Sense Shocker

Fergie In Talking Sense Shocker

With the big game a little over 24 hours away, United manager, Ol Purple Nose has been talking about Arsenal's period of transition.

This has been the Gunners worse ever start to a Premiership season even though we haven't played too badly. Mr Wenger is in the process of building hid third title challenging team.

Sir Alex has commented on Arsenal's problems and the similar experience he has suffered over the past few years.

'It's all change at Arsenal with the loss of big figures like Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Ashley Cole and last season Patrick Vieira,' said Fergie. 'When that happens you have to be patient for the next stage of development.'

'It's a transitional period for them that probably reflects their results so far this season which, by their standards, have fallen short of the kind of start they were aiming for.

'I know exactly what they are experiencing because we've been through a similar situation ourselves. As one great team of ours started to fade, I embarked on a rebuilding exercise.'

'It was obvious at some point that I would need to start replacing people and bring in a new group of young players who could develop into a major force themselves.'

'But it has been a difficult time.'

Over the past few weeks we have been taunted by supporters of many clubs that due to the start of our season we are now a team on the down, but if you have a good look at our team, that is really not true.

Arsene Wenger has built an awesome foundation on which to build and we now have a massive core of players who are, or have the potential to be world beaters, and we have them all over the park.

This season may not be our year, but all we need is patience with the team and faith in Arsene Wenger and the glory days will soon return.

Ohhh to be a...............

Arsenal will win the league again in 2007/08, I'm so sure of it, I put money on it. "What fool is he who has no patience? What wound was ever healed but by degrees?" Shakespeare said that, and I have it on good authority he was a gooner!

I can see this new team forming, I really can. On the pitch you can see Arsene Wenger's vision unfolding, and pardon my french but it's ******** exciting. As with FOD's article "The difference between the ages" the younger end of the Arsenal supporters spectrum need to remember that we can't always win everything........but I guarentee, we will win something.....and soon.

Given that I'm only 22, I wasn't really subjected to the dark days of the eighties or the sixties, in fact, the 94/95 season apart, my time as a gooner has been unbelievably blessed. All my mates support Millwall and Charlton, and have looked on in envy as I've been to the 5-1 at the san siro, Old Trafford 2002, WHL 2004, Madrid, Villarreal and Juve in 2006. This side will take time to gel and gel it will, but despite my youth I'm with you on this Rocky, it's not our divine right to win everything and when we don't my support will be unflinching.

if we win tomorow I think we can be i the title race with just as much chance as man u or chelsea as being top come May. If we lose then I think that puts us out of the race even this early. the confidence and belief would also take a hit if we lost. thats how big this game is for us.

im hopeful that liverpool can hold chelsea to a draw and maybe sneak a win but lets not forget their in stamford bridge. liverpool dont play good away. also arsenal should be able tohold man u to a draw if not sneak a win. we are capable of this !! its important for the title race. its also looks like ferguson is sick and tired of these rivalrys hes even speakin nicely

It pains me to say it but Utd will romp it, you just aren't strong enough at the back. Depending which one plays Djourou and Hoyte are not ready yet!

Djourou has been fantastic and rarely makes mistakes & Gallas is looking better each time he plays. Toure has been clearerd to play. If we lose this match it will be through our inability to score goals, it will be by the odd goal.....certainly not a route

Mikey, you should be hoping we win. And although I'm a shade apprehensive, if you saw how Man U played Watford, they don't feel like they're all that. Plus, if Celtic can make them run, I think we too can!
