Arsenal vs. Man Utd

Old Trafford

Sunday 17th September

On Sky

Man Utd v Arsenal

When the fixtures for the new season are released, no matter how many titles Chelsea buy, I can gurantee you that out of the first two fixtures that the Arsenal & Man Utd fans look for tomorrows game is one of them.

For me, Man Utd are still our biggest rivals, it's against them that we have spent so long battling, and in battle I have grown acustomed to hating them.

This game at Old Trafford is the one I want most, not only to get our season kick started but also because it's been so long since we actually won there, infact, if my memory serves me correctly the last time we recorded a league victory at their gaff was that fateful night in 2002. We need this one.

Whatever happens the atmosphere is bound to be rocking and it's more than likely that something controversial will happen, it always does.

Come on you Gunners!!

Arsene Says......

"I want to win, I feel it will be a different game to the games we faced until now. At the moment we've played more games agianst teams who try to catch us on the break, refuse to come out and refuse to play. This time it will be a more open game so maybe more interesting for us and for people to watch as well."

Arsenal Team News:

It's looking as though Arsenal will be without Thierry Henry, but as my esteemed colleague Tim Stillman pointed out, Henry has only ever scored one goal at OT, and we got tonked that day. Kolo Toure has survived an injury scare and we still wait on news of Robin van Persie.

Player to watch: Tomas Rosicky

After absolutely spanking a 30 yarder in in mid week the Czech captain's confidence will be up, and he's already looking mighty good to press anyway.

Man Utd Team News:

Wayne Rooney returns from susspension & Ryan Giggs will miss out through injury.

Player to watch: Wayne Rooney

He just loves playing against Arsenal, and almost always scores. (Not in the cup final though eh Wayne;))

Match Prediction

I'm leaving this one well alone. Yes I know I'm a bottler.

abdleb
Rocky, are you Maria in disguise?!
Little Dutch
Target Silvestre, Eboue and Hleb must push him back, thus not allowing him to come forward and cross to good effect (like last year!) and expose his defensive weakness. Come on you Yellows!
iceman10
Not sure I know what you mean LD?!?
Rocky7
Cmon Arsenal, so important this game, vital we win, give us such a boost, every one needs a big performace cant wait!!!!
jack_a_lele
AW should show his mettle and start Theo!
Westl
Why would that show his mettle West1? What would it prove?
Rocky7
It proves that Chavscum fans still read our site a lot.
FAB 4
Maria is the woman that can ALWAYS be heard shouting 'Come on you Gunners' in a very shrill voice. Nice lady.
Little Dutch
Ah yes!!! Even heard amongst all the Hamburg lot the other night. I've never actually seen her though. Although I was on tv at the West Brom game when the BBC was interviewing the North Bank screamer, eating a burger I was. Big suprise there!!
Rocky7
where is all the rivalry gone? i don't see any article on united's site about our game tomm and even on our arsenal page, there isn't much of a discussion happening between the two sets of fans, it's only arsenal and the chelsea fans having a go with each other. i wanna see some passionate go's at each other between us and the united fans before tomm's match. lets build up the atmosphere for tommorrow's game on vf..
luckys_10
at each other*, i mean..
luckys_10
Luckys - The Vital Manchester is barely populated and as such they have no members to debate/argue with.
Rocky7
sheh man tats sad, i so want to remove all my hatred for the mancs on their fans here.. i so hope we beat them tomm and that all are fans at OT taunt that ******** ronaldo for the way he mocked us at highbury when they beat us 4-2, i can never forget that, until we beat them and see that horrible look on his face..
luckys_10

carrickisours
GO GUNNERS! We'll beat the CSKA London boys on their patch, you beat the mancs on theirs and I'll get the beers in! :)
bring back kenny
We, Gunners are figters - with winning set as our ultimate goal. I am sure this game will be no different tonight. The Gunners will end Sir Fergie's 4 match winning streak tonight. Go Gunners!!!!
SWPACIFIC
well i am off for my 10 mile walk this morning, back in time to have a bath and then settle down for a nail biting game, go go gunners !
PUREGOLD
SEASON IS OVER!!! UTD 3-1 ARSE!! Biggest game of the season already!! massive 13 points behind tonight! Big club my arse???? HA hA hA
cockeril
So what does that say for Spurs then?? You said this year would be the year you surpassed us, yet you have lost 3 games already!! If we're not a big club that makes your merry band of w@nkers miniscule!!
Rocky7
I'd like to be gracious in victory Cockeril.....BUY WHAT WAS THE *****IN SCORE??????????????? COME ON YOU GUNNERS@@
Rocky7
Nice of you to admit that ARSE are not a big Club. You guys are celebrating like you have won the league!!! No CHANCE!! 1-0 to the ARSE against a Utd team that just didn`t get going but still should of beat you. Shame you cannot win in the Spurs Shrine though!! By the way the goal was offside!
cockeril
What score did you win today?? How many games have you lost? Did you win at Old Trafford? Where did you finish last season? How many league titles have you won? Have we won the league more times at white hart lane that you? Have you ever played in the champions league? Have you ever won the league when tv was in colour? did you captain ever sign for arsenal? how big is your stadium? What score did you predict for todays Arsenal Man U game?? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN OUR SHADOW???
Rocky7
FEEL BETTER NOW?? maybe you can talk without being abusive now. What did you win last season?????
cockeril
going to watch motd to see the offside goal!!
cockeril
I feel much better. Last seaon we won qualification into the champions league. In 2005 we won the FA Cup, in 2004 we won the League (at White Hart Lane) going the whole season unbeaten, in 2003 we won the FA Cup, in 2002 we won the League AND the Fa Cup, in 1998 we won the league AND the fa cup, in 1994 we won the cup winners cup, in 1993 we won the fa cup AND the league cup, in 1991 we won the League title, in 1989 we won the league title............tell me little Spud, what have you won since 1989????
Rocky7
WE ALL HAVE HISTORY!!!
cockeril
I SAID WHAT DID YOU WIN LAST SEASON!!!
cockeril
Yes but yours is a history of mediocrity. Any fans who believes or expects a team can win a trophy every year is a fool, but at the end of the day you and your lot predict the demise of Arsenal Footbal Club this season with your own boys usrpassing us in the league, when after 5 games (four for us though) it is plainly obvious that our team is much improved where as your manager has bought a whole host of players who are doing your chances of Champions League football ever bit of a chance that we Gooners hoped for. Nice to see your new boy diving to the floor like he'd been shot, any plans for an artile over at Vital Spurs condeming him??
Rocky7
I don`t think Chelski fans are fools!
cockeril
Interesting comments from Arsene. Obviously he was quietly confident!
sandgroanun
Arsenal had a succesfull time once upon a time I am not denying that and never have.all I am saying is Arsenal days are over and spurs are just starting!!! If you finish 4th I think you should be thrilled!!!!
cockeril
If Spurs days are just begining and ours are over how come you fans have booed your team off for the past two games and we have been celebrating like it's 1998??!!?? If you think our time is gone then you're a bigger fool than I first thought!!
Rocky7
Just thought I would shre this with you guys............A Spurs fan, a Watford fan and a Scum fan came across a nude, dead woman in the street. They called the police and then, for decency, decided to cover her up. The Spurs fan put his cap over one breast, the Watford fan put his cap over the other, and the Gooner put his cap "down below". When the police arrived they needed to examine the body. The policeman lifted the Spurs cap and looked at one breast, then he lifted the Watford cap and examined the other. He then walked away from the body. The Spurs fan said: "Aren't you going to examine "down below?" "Nope", The copper replied, "I already know that under every Arsenal cap is a cu*t!"
cockeril
1-0 TO THE CHAMPIONS 1-0 TO THE CHAMPIONS :p:p:p:p
