    Yes, but one result does'nt change a season. We lost 3-1 to Sheff Wednesday one time, and what happened next? We won everything mate.

    I've noticed this. A lot of Arsenal supports were delighted with Chelsea losing to Man Utd but conceded they're not going to win the title. So that result could mean the difference for Man Utd finishing 2nd. If I was supporting Arsenal and concede the title I'd want my nearest rivals for the next places to gain the least amount of points. A draw would have been decent for the average Liverpool or Arsenal supporter I would have thought. :confused:
    We're not in the stage of the season to be worrying about that, people are more concerned aboiut the performance of their team than comparing them to others'. Sunday meant little to me, tbh.

    well, chelsea could be dragged in their tracks if teams would be more willing to TRY. look at west brom, they fielded a second string, conceding their game without the whistle being blown. chelsea do have off-days and if teams would try more, they might be able to catch chelsea off their footing.

    sigh.

    anyway, i dont think liverpool can win anything domestically. they are not consistent and always leave things to the end. benitez's striking choice of crouch isnt helping much too!

    Benitez is his own man, and is acknowledged as perhaps the most tactically astute manager in Europe. We are not in the position to question a man, as many 'pundits' try to, who has given us the European Cup in his first season and taken us to the final of a domestic cup.

    How can you call the result a fluke? In football there is a fine line between success and failure and Manchester United were just on the right side of the line today just like Chelsea have been several times before. I must admit at the end of the game it was a balanced match but in the first half we outplayed and outpassed Chelsea with our makeshift midfield and we deserved to lead. In the second half they were on top but we could have easily scored more with our numerous counter attacks.
    true. both sides came very close to scoring a lot more goals. but it was a good well balanced match that could have turned either way just like arsenal-chelsea.

    I think it'll probably end with Man U in second and Chelsea in first, so it doesn't affect us at all. We have to aim for fourth or, at best, third. It might all change, depending on January sales.
    For Arsenal supporters who haven't conceded the title the result is a good one. For those that have, they're probably more concerned about their unbeaten run record, and remaining the only team to finish a Prem season unbeaten. Especially so early in the season

    I would say that Bolton, Everton and Blackburn did the premiership a favour before Man UTD did.... they both showed that it is possible to attack Chelsea and get goals etc and at times can defend against them also... it showed that 4-4-2 can work against them, as opposed to playing 4-5-1 and trying to defend...

    I am sure the fact that Moyes and Hughes both played 4-4-2 against Chelsea and played some good football, and scored goals, made Ferguson realise that maybe 4-4-2 was better for the game as opposed to their wierd 4-5-1 formation... Chelsea are used to dominating games but as has been proved recently, they dont like teams coming at them!
    yeah. bolton, everton, blackburn showed that chelsea can concede. chelsea kept six cleansheets at the beginning of the season and conceded seven in the past six games. teams shd just attack more.

    but what man united did was show the league the way. other teams managed to score against chelsea - villa, liverpool, bolton, everton, blackburn - but they all ended up losing (with everton the only exception). they only showed that chelsea can concede, but did not show the chelsea could lose. furthermore, the only other time chelsea loss in the league (since moanrinho) was due to a penalty.

    villa, liverpool, bolton, blackburn all loss bcos they couldnt defend. now united has showed the league to score early and defend. hard.

    thats kinda contradicting eh.

    but man united can beat chelsea with two conditions:
    1 - they put in consistent performances like against chelsea, with ferdinand bucking up every week
    2 - teams actually trying harder against chelsea. push them all the way.

    well, im not hoping for it to be spent wisely, but rather shwerdly.

    think solskjaer, cantona, schmeichel. they didnt cost much but still did the job.

    unfortunately, some wisely-invested players who cost the club a bomb in the tune of £20-£30m, didnt perform like they shd.

    cheap may not be gd all the time, but cheap can pay off some times.

    True but I'd rather have another Premiership title than beating Arsenal's record especially with a club that is inferior to others with respect to honours.

    The old man prefers his business in the summer, but I think he's got not much choice when the January window opens this season. He may be an old fart, but remember he's the most successful manager in England's league, and British too.

    what fergie said was true, we've got too many first team regulars injured and the players coming in arent experienced enough. we've got not depth in our squad- fergie has to pick the team that he does.

    Man Utd need to be careful of Charlton. Still there is this same Utd fan in my Halls gloating the fact that Ferguson managed to beat Mourinho once out of so many attempts. Yet if your players lower their guard, Charlton, your next Premiership opponents, will more than likely punish you. And all that effort in beating Chelsea is down the drain.
