    7:45pm on a Monday, ****, not too sure how Heathrow will cope, plus 60,000 united fans and 10,000 Arsenal fans having to make their way up from London to Manchester on a Monday.

    At least we don't have a midweek game after
    Not quite that far ill guess that there is a few thousand glory hunters between london and manchester who will only have to travel about 25 mile round trip

    I just hope Air Traffic Control diverts planes from Asia to Heathrow up to Manchester Airport, should go some way to easing congestion on the trains up

    You probably will not go to the match anyway
    On what basis have you made that assumption? If I wasn't a match going fan I wouldn't care about TV times.

    Well I do go to games and was planning on going to this one although the newly selected date and kick off time have now made that difficult.

    That's seriously racist and stereotypical.

    I expect a good game, don't think you'll have that mental block against us in the cup though. I can see you taking a draw back to Emirates and then just knocking us out tbh.

    Racist in what way?

    I feel more confident than most posters, but still think you'll beat us tbh

    Nah don't think we will. Looks like Wenger is willing to defend deeper now, and all our chances against you came on the counter attack, and in any case we're at home so the crowd will expect us to be on the front foot, and we have zero ****ing incision at the moment. In addition to this, you'll have Giroud up front who lets be honest is more of an offensive threat than Welbeck (who'll most likely play on the wings) so your conversion rate will increase. I'm really not as confident as other people, I don't think the mental block will transfer to the cup.

    Yes, but the sitting deep can backfire massively (see Tottenham game for more details :cool:), Giroud has been solid this year but I still wouldn't be surprised if we attacked for most of the game only for Rooney to grab a winner, probably even Falcao knowing how **** we are against you, to be followed by Szc sucking on his bottle as though it is his mothers' teet.

    Also, will Wilshere be back by March? Scrappy Doo will be guaranteed to start on Fellaini again if he plays.

    Just hoping that LVG hasn't realised he'd be better off dropping RVP and Falcao and having Rooney upfront with Fellaini at CAM/CF and Di Maria on one wing and Young on the other with Blind and Herrera sitting deep in a conventional 4-2-3-1 with B2B CDM and CAM central midfield

    The last time we played Arsenal in the cup we beat them with a midfield consisting of Rafael Gibson O'Shea and Fabio. Then the time before that, we won 4-0 and contributed towards the complete collapse of their season. We've also beaten them in 2 semi finals and completely outplayed them in the 2005 final, only losing on penalties.

    I'm not worried at all. We all know what's going to happen, Arsenal will have all the possession without doing much with it and then we'll kill them off with a counter or two or three. Then their fans will moan to Robbie about De Gea/the referee/Wenger Out etc whilst completely ignoring the deficiencies in their own side.

    You're gonna look like quite the fool when Oli G scores a hat-trick and shatters Utd's dreams of silverware this season.

    We'll finish above Utd in the league - so which race are you referring to? The race to qualify for the Europa?

    You never know it might be different this time, luck has to change eventually, and it did against City this year.

    The "race to beat post-Fergie United". Clearly all the other big clubs are ahead

    #AskGibbs and #AskKoscielny on Twitter have predictably been hijacked by trolls. Arsenal's social media dept aren't the best are they?
