is it just me or do they just have really old fashioned chants ?
I mean 'Take Me Home Arsenal Road' FFS.
They barely make a noise apart from the sound of 70,000 people eating prawn sandwiches!
or the first time today. There was this stupid, irate American Arsenal fan complaining throughout the match.
His excuse was that it was their second team. It wasn't really though-only Bendtner, Traore and Hoyte were players with not much first team experience. They just had a massive off day.
don't use "it was our second team" as an excuse for losing. your first team is whoever you send out to play in your first team matches. if that includes Justin Hoyte, Darren Fletcher or Steve Sidwell, so be it. that is your first team. that is how good your team are. face it.
Man United had as many 'non first choice' players as Arsenal today and thumped them. Arsenal were quite frankly embarassing. The petulance and ill discipline 2nd half was beyond belief. It seems they still don't know how to accept defeat with a bit of grace. Full marks to Man United who were simply awesome. Shame about their fans deserting Old Trafford with 5 minutes to go. If I was a fan and we'd just hammered our closest rivals 4-0 I'd be lapping the atmosphere up until well after the final whistle.
