Fifa.com today runs with a piece with ManUre manager Sir Alex Ferguson praising the way Arsenal have begun the season, highlighting the good mixture of experience and blossoming promise strutting its' stuff down at the Grove.
The Manchester United manager stated:
The title race is still open, but Arsenal have made a great start and you can't deny that.
And in Arsene Wenger they have a manager who has been there before and they also have the players who done it as well. Kolo Toure and Gilberto Silva know how to win the title, so the inexperience of some of their younger players won't be a handicap.
Some of the youngsters haven't experienced it before, but the same could be said of some of our players last year and we led the Premiership for three-quarters of a season.
It's nice to hear such comments coming from the manager of the team who have, until recent seasons, been the club who Arsenal were always involved in bitter and heated title battles with.
Since Arsene began his rebuilding programme a couple of seasons ago, there's been a lack of animosity emanating back and forth between the two clubs, most probably because of the lack of a direct challenge for the title coming from the Arsenal camp, threatening ManUre's challenge for Premier League glory.
Given the start we've made though, if the form and results continue to flow as they have been for the Gooners, I'm certain that in time, the verbal jousting between the two clubs will reappear, as we all know that Fergie loves his mind games, and if The Arsenal maintain their health at the top of the table, the United manager will look to use his mental tactics to disrupt the flow at the club.
If that is to be the case, it'll be a delight to see, as it'll definitely mean we're doing something very right. Here's hoping that the purple one is fuming and foaming at the mouth about Arsenal in a couple of months time, eh?
