FA Cup: It's Man Utd Away

FA Cup: It's Man Utd Away

Arsenal have been given a massive FA cup clash away at Old Trafford.

As usual in domestic cup competitions the Gunners have been given a hard away fixture, facing Man Utd oopp north.

It's not the first time in recent history that Arsenal have faced Ferguson's men in the FA Cup. With memories still fresh of Giggs marauding down the wing, Edu's deflected freekick, Scholes smashing home a winner and Vieira's last kick of the ball as an Arsenal player.

With AC Milan visiting the following week, it will be interesting to see both managers team selections.

People say that you've gotta beat the best to win the trophy anyway..............I think Chelsea disprove this rule. It would be interesting to comapre the teams Arsenal & Chelsea have faced in the cup competitions in the last 5 years.

i just hope upon hope the beeb have it and it's a 5.15 ko on a Sat, please.

this is the reason the players get paid £50k/week - to play a week with ManU and AC Milan. I can't wait for this game - it could be a great week to be an Arsenal fan.

Or one of the worst. This has happened to us before. We could be out of two competitions within a week. But we can BEAT anyone on our day.

I think that both teams would like to avoid a replay.. so I am expecting to great match and hopefully a result either way.

I can feel another Fergie boot incident coming on.

The beeb put it at 12.30 last time and I think they will again, because that would be the most annoying scenario, so it's the one they will follow.

Keplaz - you gotta be a glass half full person. Yes it could be the worst, but at least Arsenal have put themselves in a position to play these games. Two seasons ago we beat Real Madrid, Valencia and Juve to get to the Big Cup final. This team have the experience to go to these games full of confidence. Yes we could lose, but we also could win - either way it'll be one hell of a week!
