Tempted to bet on a sub for a sub later in this game - Rafael will never last 75 minutes!

True, Nani's had some good opportunities delivered to him on a silver platter but hasn't been done anything with them. But Giggs ventures to the left = goal.

Chamberlain looking very dangerous, he gets better every time I see him.

Great controlled display of football from United in the first 45! I can't see this game as over though, no way can Arsenal be that poor again in the second-half.

What a terrible atmosphere at the Emirates - jesus, really shows after watching the earlier game.

Rooney got his arm pulled for the penalty shout but dumping himself on the floor like that didn't help his cause. How Song got away without at least a booking for the forearm across the face is beyond me.

What I'm saying is you are going to criticise Rooney, at least criticise your own players. He was theatrical but he was being fouled.
And as for Gerrard, I'm saying he's so good at it, they've promoted him.

I always do. They are all a bunch of clever/cheating *****, including ours.

damn, Rooney to blame for that i think, bad pass to Rafael meant he lost the ball and left the RB spot vacant for Arsenal's break.
