    What about the games in which Arsenal benefitted from questionable referring decisions in that run, I bet you weren't complaining then. Pires diving to win a penalty and admitting to it afterwards comes to mind. Or how about the Arsenal players being thugs in the 0-0 the previous season, lucky not to have had points deducted for that embarassing behaviour.

    Rooney did dive to win a penalty, but this stonewall penalty was not given. Convenient how everyone forgets that:

    Didnt rio jump on ljungbergs back in first half when baring down on goal? No free kick was given, yet alone a red card.

    I was in the United end for the 0-0 at OT. One of the funniest football related moments of my life.

    Tbh, this is further forward in time than that team but our team with Cesc, RVP and Nasri did have some right thuggish characters. Surprisingly, they lacked the mental fortitude though. The previous team had thuggish/chav scum traits too, but they were more mentally tough.

    The guys on Skysports 5 aren't very confident that we can go far this Champions League. I can't really complain we've only gone far twice since , 06 (Final) & 09 (Semi-Finals).

    you watch continental football, right?

    what actually happened to him? just an overachieving youth?
    Bojan wasn't favoured by the manager and the form of Pedro, Villa and Messi meant it was very hard for him to get into the team.

    I didn't watch too much continental football at the time.

    I've only seen him in the world cup too.

    I doubt it would stop a CM signing as he would probably just be a replacement for vermaelan

    Howedes would be quality but maybe too good to be backup especially considering he's 26

    Although if he's willing to come...

    He's quite a versatile player I can see Wenger playing him in both CDM and backup CB if needed

    Really really hope wenger does not just by a defender who can play as CDM and think 'great, that position is covered' - then play arteta/flamini/new defender in rotation..

    Just give ramsey a proper first team partner who is capable of the job.

    Pires denies to this day that he ever dived...(obviously he did but whatever, it was the 40th minute or so, no guarantee we wouldn't have scored later on anyway). RvN should himself have been sent off in that game, loads of arsenal players got bans after that game you seem to have conveniently forgotten (also no one gets points deductions for unprofessional behaviour, otherwise Suarez would have stopped liverpool getting Europe).

    Let's look at the incidents in that game (3 red cards united should have had: RvN, Ferdinand last man challenge, neville hatchet job on Reyes.



    Match fixing at its finest.

    We've done so well in the market this year and just need two more players. A quality DM and a decent CB. That's all really.
