    Now we know why Roman hasn't been spending his cash so much on Chelsea, he's been giving it to Sepp Blatter.

    That would be funny if it wasn't so plausible.

    It wouldn't even surprise me if that is why he won't give Chelsea as much money because it's all been going to Blatter, then again I bet he paid a fortune for lube on Blatter as well.

    Best collection of midfielders without doubt. Forwards, could be debated... but we've certainly more depth there.

    Our fullbacks are the best pairing in the league, and so the only doubt lays around the CB pairing and the keeper.

    So yeah, perhaps a proper counter-argument is needed.

    It'll still come down to Chelsea and United in the end. Which is why tonight's result is even more enjoyable.

    2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 tablespoon plain flour
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1 1/2 cups rolled oats
    3/4 cup chopped pecans or almonds
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup plain flour
    3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    5 tablespoons butter

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2. Mix the blueberries with sugar, flour and juice and divide 4 or 6 oven proof small ramekins .
    3. Combine oats, nuts, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon well and mix the butter in making a breadcrumb-like mixture.
    4. Add to crumble mix to the ramekins with the blueberries.
    5. Bake the blueberry crumbles on a baking sheet until the tops are golden brown, approx. 20 to 25 minutes

    Our keeper is miles better. Our defence is miles better. Your midfield might edge it but ours isn't given enough credit, Nani has been one of the best players in the league and him Scholes Fletcher and Valencia isn't as weak as everyone likes to make out. Up front you have possibly edged it so far, we've got the top scorer in the league but that was pretty much from 2 games, but we've got more room for improvement if we can get Rooney back to last season's level, he can offer more to us than RVP can to you.

    Chelsea have the best first eleven, and if they keep them fit for a decent amount of time they'll win the league. We have the best squad, and you'll fall away like you always do. This "best squad on paper" crap is nonsense anyway, you haven't improved enough from the last couple of years to be considered realistic contenders. Imo.

    You do realise there is only so many times we can fall away. I'd be worried about Arsenal if i were you. If not this season, then certainly very soon. It really is just a matter of time before things fall in place.

    Defensive we're not as bad as some make out, it's just that we get carried away, and Wenger fails to discipline the players. But fundamentally, Squillaci, Koscielny, Vermaelen and Sagna are fine defenders.

    With a potential attacking line up of Fabregas, Wilshere, Nasri, Arshavin and RVP, we're easily just as good as anyone in the league. That's with Rosicky, Chamakh (10 goals) and Walcott (7 goals) to provide competition.

    Results will have to tell the story. I have to say it is laughable to say any of the top three team's defences are miles better than any of the other top threes. Particularly astounding with Sagna being comfortable better than Fabio.

    What you will see from this Arsenal team if the players remain fit (for once) will be two trophies, at the very least. One being the league.

    We best not forget that we're missing two of our very best players too. Doing very well, considering.

    You're a centre back and a keeper away from challenging. Maybe Fabianski and Koscielny/Squillaci will step up but from what i've seen of them they're not good enough. We all know your attack is great, but although your defence may not be as bad as some make out it's still too big an obstacle to overcome. It's not just about how good they are individually, it's about defending as a team, and that's something you sacrifice for your attack.

    You mean Rafael? The gap between him and Sagna isn't as big as between Clichy and Evra, and our centre back partnership isn't even comparable to yours. And see above, it's about defending as a team and that's something we do a hell of a lot better.

    That's ambitious.

    We've all got injuries and room for improvement.
