    We haven't won at the emirates at all and we had a terrible record against arsenal at highbury as well.

    However, we now have a true launch option :coma:

      I'm quite glad tbh, we clearly don't react that well under pressure. I'm surprised at just how much the bookies favour us, too.
      I'm not so sure. As far as I can remember, many of the games we lost/dropped points this season have been where we were expected to win - games that had not, in other words, been hyped up. West Brom, Newcastle and Blackburn spring to mind, as well as the close shave against West Ham.

      I don't think you can really put West Brom/Newcastle/Blackburn in the same category as Liverpool. I think we all took those to be 3 point bankers, I doubt many people see this that way, I'm sure Le Boss won't anyway.

        I'm not putting them in the same category, but I'm pointing out that a lot of our dropped points this season have come from games where there wasn't much hype. Conversely, we have done quite well when at home in hyped up matches, a la Barcelona, Chelsea and (almost) Manchester City.

        if today doesn't go well you should be able to get United tickets on the exchange because people will be fed up with it and just sell their ticket, thats how I got my tickets for today, after the Blackburn 0-0 there was loads on the exchange

        This season has been one of your best chances in years of the title surely, but from where I'm watching from, Arsenal just seem to lack that grit and knack of grinding out wins when they need them. United haven't been faultless this year, but for me that's just what separates the two teams. Drawing 3 out of your last 4 to (Blackburn, West Brom, and Sunderland says it all really.

        I think you'll beat us today, you should do really, our defence is weakened greatly without Johnson, Agger and Kelly. Gerrard is a miss as well..

        Flanagan may start right back, hes an 18 year old kid who got his first start against City on Monday night and whilst he looked composed in that game I fear he could struggle against the Arsenals pace and skill upfront.

        The only other option for Kenny really is to play Carragher right back and put Kyrgiakos Center back,although he was appalling in his last game against West Brom (Slow and Clumsy)

        How do you think Big Andy Carrol will fare?

        I think you'll score against us....but I think we'll edge a win over you.

          It's a knee injury. I'm not sure when he was injured - I don't remember anything happening during the Blackburn game (?) - but he was out before the Blackpool game; it may have been during training. :dontknow:

              Oh, right. I think it may be because most people think the title race is already definitely over. Also, because Liverpool have not been a major force in the league this season.

              I do think it's strange, though. I pointed it out earlier.
