You would have thought he had learnt by now.

Man City still looking good.
The more time that passes, the closer Man City are to winning. I just hope that they don't concede any time soon, else they might get really nervy and mess up.

There was also that goalkeeper (name escapes me at the moment). Arsenal and young English players just don't seem to go, unless Walcott will be an exception.
Ashley Cole?

Stuart Taylor? Richard Wright?

Ashley Cole is one of the few exceptions (he replaced Silvinho, who was a bit tasty himself, as the first choice LB)

But still, it's not that good if they've only really had one English youngster come through and make a mark. Especialy for an English team. Asley Cole came right through the ranks with Arsenal, where as the others have come from elsewhere, perhaps there might be something in that as to why?

I wouldn't mind the limit on foreigners being reintroduced to give home grown talent a chance, although there are a number of teams that will be affected by that.

Man U don't seem to be having the cutting edge, but it only takes one special Rooney moment or something and Man City will get nervy. They just gave Rooney too much space. If they keep doing this, they might get in trouble.

Hopefully Rooney will get himself another card and be off.

I know. I agree with what you've said. Wenger's just a bit obsessed with all these Frenchies. I wish he'd pay more attention to the grassroots over here and stuff.

One more thing, I love you.

To be honest, it does remind me a bit of the Pennant sitiuation, but hopefully, Theo will be more level headed that Pennant, and be a bit more mature than Pennant was.

Ronaldo came in with a bad challenge but he didn't make contact with the Man City player. So, actaully, as muchas I hate to admit it, Man Utd were unlucky. Ronaldo should have only got a yellow as he was lucky enough to make no contact with Cole.

That's incorrect actually. Don't you remember Bill Gates?
That was an honorary one. Loads of people got them - Spike Milligan is the one that springs to mind.

Yeah I think the refs a bit of a wa***r. No need for a red there.

Who's the ref? Is it Steve Bennett? Cos he is a bit of a w*nker.

If it isn't...well he's still a bit of a w*nker.

Correct. I should imagine that there will be an appeal against the descision.
Ah well, Ronaldo can keep Rooney company in being suspended for the FA Cup replay...

It's all very well you lot cricitising referees in the comfort in your armchair isn't it? TV replays, alternative angles, not having to decide in an instant etc. Yes referees make mistakes but they're human. You lot aren't perfect are you? It's about time football fans put up and shut up. Like to see all these critics try and referee a Premier League game.

As I understand it, the vast majority of people who get the usual ones (MBE, OBE etc.) are British citizens, but if a foreign national has done something outstanding (supposedly) they can get honorary ones. Arsene Wenger and Gerard Houllier have got honorary OBEs, I believe.
