Any other AOBs?
Building anticipation for this evening's clash!
Play shit and get a really dodgy 95th minute winner. Maybe a bit of crowd trouble too. Make all the journalists heads explode.
i remember thinking at the time, was that it really wasn't impressive trickery. Running into the corner with no one in front of you, and standing around dancing. Neither one actually beat anyone, in fact they both lost possession.
are going to have to be 1990 levels of amazing to make up for how dreadful these quarter-finals have been/will be tonight
with the same outcome
and he won them the league and now I can't properly enjoy how shit he's become :(
man harried goat is the big news
to be held back by some beatnik
Dread to think what he would have done to him in the heady adrenaline rush of scoring a winner
who's the killjoy in the beret?
It's making me nostalgic
But very much enjoying both sides being simultaneously relevant for the first time in nearly a decade.
for playing his best forward at left wing back and then drawing at home to a Championship side...
Don't know, how much shit did he get for not beating Cambridge first time out?
Non-league team beats non-league team - Ha ha, look at those little blighters enjoying themselves... They've got a swan! Ah, football.
Non-league team beats Premier League - Magic of the Cup™
Happens in the '70s on a muddy pitch - Magic of the Cup™
All-Premier League clash - Disgrace to the game, shameful scenes, return to the dark days, how dare they ruin Tim's big day, etc, etc.
Is that right?
Astonishingly fucking stupid reaction to that on Saturday
having 2 titles wrapped up and a third on the way after you hump PSG
if you were wondering http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/31677806
Oh you'd go for Ferguson would you? Interesting.
"I would choose Angel Di Maria in place of Darren Fletcher"
Whose fans generally think Blues fans are obsessed with them. F.A. Cup semi and there's a near riot - if they win it there'll be World War III. Hope they get to the final (after an exhausting relegation inducing battle against Bradford in the semi) then destroyed by one of the biggies 5-0. I'll stop here or else I'll sound like I'm obsessed with them!
to the tune of Roll Out The Barrel, was called 'Shit On The Villa'.
Defining moment Paul Tait scoring the only ever Sudden Death goal at Wembley as Blues beat a tough Carlisle and revealed a 'Shit On The Villa' vest.
Warning: video may contain Gary Newbon and Ricky Otto!
our redition of 'Stan Collymore's a wanker'
Easily the best player I have ever seen actually play at a football ground. Destroyed Blues on his own with devastating pace and power yet silky football skills. Blues fans turned from chanting horrific abuse at him to mumbling he should be playing for England in the space of about 10 minutes circa 1993/94. Genuinely think he could have become the English Ronaldo (the 'fat' one).
Led to a replay, meaning that we now play them four times in a row across all competitions.
watched a bit of sportscene, perhaps about 2 mins of the ross county partick game, jesus christ scottish football is grim.
You mean you haven't been winning it every single season with a 20 point gap to spare? Bizarre.
Hehe. Not actually been top of Bundesliga at the end of a weekend at any point this season, but we're level with Schalke (8 back on goal difference), but have two games in hand.
FUCKING LOVE FOOTBALL MANAGER.
Wish I could play it a little bit and not let it hook me in and take over my life :(
BUT I LOVE IT YAY.
not sure where to even start.
and I just can't get good, no matter how hard I try.
but now I find that you need to try way too hard at it to the point where it's not even fun. It's too much now. (Well, last year's version was anyway)
they do a player poll, where they ask 123 players from the top 4 divisions and the SPL questions on an anonymous basis. Not normally a fan of these because I find if you don't know who the players are it's a bit worhtless (the Secret Footballer is of no interest to me whatsoever, all the stories may as well be fictional) but it's quite good, enlightening. Good to see no one respects Savage
"- LostandFound asks: Will Welbeck score?
- dtaylor: I wouldn't rule it out."
"Do you think Van Gaal subbing Angel Di Maria is a sign that he has already given up on him and is planning a sale/replacement winger in the summer?"
Just want some of this:
Roy Keane tunnel barney
GNev staring out Paddy
Pure filthy tactics from Utd
Bobby Pires joining in with a few snide swipes
Henry/Bergkamp's pure brilliant link-up play
and of JOHN O'SHEA scoring the sexiest chip ever
All in one grainy, badly sountracked video please
in the shape of Gunnersaurus and Fred the Red going for each other in the tunnel, like in that David Squires cartoon the other day
Sky bet has 66-1 for Arsenal to win 2-0 or 3-0, with Ozil first to score.
£1000.00 on that, pay off the morthgage banker.
and Old Trafford just vanishes into thin air because it was all a bad dream.
and then you lot are gonna moan about it for weeks.
Let's not pretend otherwise. Not even worth anti-bantsing.
A cup exit just leaves you free to concentrate on moaning about the league
on any normal basis we should be beating this united team most of the time but we're a massive bunch of bottle jobs liable to shit the bed at the first sign of pressure.
to be more measured, united do have good home form and our record there lately is deplorable. that said, united are gonna have to come out and play a bit more than they have been, surely?
really hoping wenger throws ramsey right back in with cazorla and coquelin with 3 of giroud, welbeck, ozil, and sanchez in front of them.
let's just not give a stupid first goal away PLEASE. if united score first the chances of seeing rooney wildly celebrating a breakaway tap-in become way too high for me to bear.
Or BBC? Or Sky? Or BT Sport? Don't understand who's got the FA cup anymore.
...almost looked like he was having a laugh.
Been a while since we did a good cheesy video, but this little number is more than adequate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5zKZA_OSec
(Disclaimer. If the roof of your house gets blown off watching the video, then I am not to blame)
Might as well save themselves the petrol.
Don't ruin this
his mobility and work-rate should cause smalling and rojo some problems rather than the more static giroud.
we need a big performance from someone in that front four, don't give a shit who so long as *somebody*, *anybody* steps up.
But his finishing and technique is a bit #sanogo
pretty amazing given the stupid scheduling.
have the club sorted out loads of transport or something?
are the man utd fans making the same journey
Both managers have said they're not that arsed.
As entertaining as that rivalry was, it was some time ago, and lasted only a few seasons. People just seem desperate to invent a narrative where Manchester United are still the most relevant club in the country.
If you were the TV channels after the three other games this weekend.
most excited ive been about one of these games for a while for sure.
Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa?
Or the pitch at Valley Parade.
have heard only good things
#facup #memories https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSfwcI8wsMY
SURELY THE REF CAN...oh actually fair enough
Who is this co-commentator? Talking a lot of shite.
I thought it sounded like a Chester accent but I couldn't for the life of me think who it was, cheers.
the last few days, eh?
with Lee Dixon running the bakers a few doors down
were made out of wood by Wenger. But which one will become a real boy?
but then, like in Pinocchio, they all get led off to that fairground and start sprouting donkey parts before going full donkey and binned off to serie a
arsenal to win 2-0, 14/1, get it while it's hot
Arsenal aren't limply surrendering at Old Trafford.
this feels more comfortable
Wayne Rooney. Strikes faster than British Leyland
just in time to shut that fucking awful song up.
lovely goal, too.
Thought someone had put mogadon in Danny Murphy's tea in case he was too interesting for a match people might actually be watching.
A real shame.
why the fuck aren't we in yellow?
to fund another slight, permacrocked, attacking midfielder next summer
because this white and gold kit is more of a contrast to Utd's.
Not sure why, when faced with the choice between a good keeper and a terrible one, Wenger has chosen to go with the terrible one.
In relation to, say, Thomas Rosicky, aye, he's 'good', but he has to be judged bearing in mind the fee, and comparative to other top players in his position in the country. You'd literally have to be an idiot to try to argue he's been a success at Arsenal.
can't be arsed for an actual 'debate' but we won our first trophy in nine years in his first season and he's been world class since coming back so w/e hater
if you keep saying he's been playing really well it's not going to happen.
2 yard pass to ramsey then and he fucked it up
whereby he's allowed about 6 more fouls than anyone else before getting a booking.
they're not even subtle fouls
for smashing an elbow into Coquelin's already broken nose within 5 minutes of kick-off.
...is Keane not coming across as his usual miserable cunt self?!
Arsenal looking the better side, but well they always *look* better dont they? Going to out four grand on a united win after Ozil tackles himself in the area and throws the ball in his own net by accident.
Charles grodin's Irish step brother
Oxlade-Chamberlain is making a right muppet of whoever United are playing at left back, presumably some academy prospect.
Zxygny plays like City's defence.
It was shit then and it is even worse now.
They're doing banter at each other.
Welbeck has shown good pace and movement but his touch has been awful at times
do you mean literally all of his entire life. because if so, i agree
his legs are made entirely of shin
He looks like Swiss Toni.
boring, well covered point, but two footed footballers huh? Man U could be three nil up if Di Maria could kick the ball with his right foot. Imagine Cazorla if he could use his left!
Stupid cunt up there ^^^ putting me off my game.
Waste of space.
he's the English Alexis Sanchez
wish he wouldnt get so fucking injured
watch walcott not track his runner for united's winner :(
huh...just like...ha...I mean...his hair...as in...oh I don't know
Does Rooney's armband say "Rooney" on it? If so that's it, football's done. It's beyond saving.
why do footballers cut the bottoms of their socks off?
nope. They are wearing other socks underneath. They just tape the team socks to the normal socks.
It is weird.
has 15 England caps.
Someone check on Ant.
good lad Danny
and he's celebrated. good lad
Ant must be in tears.
None of that 'respect' bollocks
would have been more a case of embarrassment over how piss poor the whole thing was than showing respect.
at work calling me up and trying to get me to put 2k on a Utd win at 9-1. I barely know the bloke!
by a manager taking off a player on a yellow. Like it was Sun Tzu or something
"welbeck, you left cos you're shit"? nice.
"he left cos you're shit" from the arsenal fans
In terms of skills used to beat a man there is something really satisfying about that little shift of weight that Ozil does. Really graceful stuff.
very fortunate not to get a straight red, seeing it from that angle.
absolute bread and butter. Scuffed and straight at him, ffs.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of lads etc.
(Although he did allow Joe Hart to headbutt him)
An unavoidable comingtogether.
HE'D probably get banned
Di Maria sent off for grouping Colin Hanks.
This is why I don't post on here during the evening...
you knew didn't you
I am out of here
sending off of the season. Shitty little dive, then a tug on the refs shirt. Could only have been worse if he'd gobbed on someone on the way off.
so very man united
many of United's players haven't dived tonight.
This has been alright. Top reffing too.
Big Mike Oliver. What a ledge!
the wheels are fully falling off here. how's there only one in it. Arsenal are shit
Januzaj's dive was disgusting
thoroughly embarrass themselves isn't it?
Even there, Young was always getting the free kick, but did his little pinwheel dive for good measure.
literally worse than a Dulwich Hamlet fan
hart would've caught that
It's not getting less funny, is it?
The wig still fell off.
Aon, Chevrolet, DHL, BWIN, Singha, Casillero Del Diablo, Aeroflot, Bulova, Epson, Toshiba, Aperol Spritz, Nissin Foods Group, STC, anmar, Kansai Paint, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, TM, Apollo Tyres, Globacom, Viva, Viva Kuwait, A.P. Honda, Backell, Kagone, Truemove H, True Visions, PCCW and Gloops, your boys took one hell of a beating.
all i've ever wanted. Mike Oliver motm for sure
what *is* the correct way to celebrate with a goat?
Some bad omens there.
Arsenal fans borrowing the Dexter Blackstock chant.
Continually, CONTINUALLY bangs on about 'good fouls' and all 'that's not a yellow' bollocks, and then tonight he's moaning about Di Maria getting sent off for pulling the ref. This is the BBfuckingC. Shut the cunt up telling kids that's OK. Sounds a bit like he got a voice in his ear after he said it, 'oh actually, by the letter of the law…'.
we really need Liverpool and Arsenal to not be paired together here. Fuck the Romance of the Cup, we don't need a final with Reading or Sherwood in it.
stevie me's big birthday send-off would be glorious.
I'm sure everyone will go home happy after participating and watching such a satisfying game.
is about to tweet about what a pleasure it was to be on the receiving end of some top reffing
Get the FA to do it. Not these clowns.
Bit of decorum lads!
can't be doing with Sherwood or captain birthday in the final
After watching Valencia do a passable impersonation of him tonight?
Imagine it. Imagine it.
Arsenal can't be trusted.
what do people think Thumb in a Suit keeps in that black leather satchel of his?
It sure as hell ain't tactics!
gonna listen to glendenning now and bring myself back down to earth
What a time to be alive, lads!
the lad's had about five good games in a decade.
tbf he does seem to enjoy bossing games in Manchester.
You don't have to prefix every sentence with 'i think', Phil, people understand that when you're asked what you think you'll tell them what you think.
so shoddy and the opposite of Sky's flashiness but probably the most I've enjoyed domestic coverage in years. worked well on an evening too, WORLD CUP feel to it.
*might be entirely based on Man U being such a joke it's hard to comprehend
How could you not love seeing Utd get humiliated at Old Trafford like that? Angel Di Maria costs 60 million plus wages! And them diving every 5 mins!
I do love that Utd's two big attacking tactics are now diving in the box and long balls to the big man. Bring back Moyes! Glad to see Welbeck scoring as well
As long as Stevie G's crying on his birthday.
