what a rivalry it was.
i sort of agree, though, but it's just how it goes, there's always a main rivalry, goes in cycles, Arsenal have been in their fair share.
them days, though, man. that Arsenal team of the unbeaten year and the year before. some weeks i'd just not go to City so i could watch Arsenal somewhere in a pub. they genuinely gave me an erection most weeks.
That was a great rivalry though. I remember one FA Cup tie when the referee had to call both captains together and ask them to stop kicking the everloving shit out of each other. It was that one where Giggs missed the open goal then Wiltord scored the winner about a minute later.
i re-watched the title-clincher at Old Trafford recently, the amount of kicking was insane. van nistelrooy was one of the worst, you can see why they all despised him so much.
