Can't Get Rid Of Me That Easily

Just in case regular visitors think I've disappeared, this is just to let you know I'll be composing something soon. I spent Saturday in the midst of a ravenous pack of United fans with nothing but my lucky Arsenal boxers for company. Actually, they weren't that bad. They spent more time waving to Roy Keane in his executive box and David Beckahm peering out the tunnel than they did watching the match. I swear I heard someone ask what the score was on 90 minutes.

If you insist on a quick summary; Arsenal's lack of interest + United's rabid desire for revenge = 3 points to Manchester. Positives for United: back four look less like a sieve, Phil Neville is capable of at least one good game in his career, Scholes definately hasn't forgotten how to score. Negatives for United: they didn't play any particularly good football, Ruud Van Nistelrooy was handled (like the pun) far too easily by Pascal Cygan and Phil Neville's going to have to make way for Roy Keane soon.

Arsenal can take away the fact that Stuart Taylor did well, Robert Pires clearly hasn't lost it and Pascal Cygan isn't necessarily as bad as everyone thinks he is. However, Henry and Vieira were poor, Martin Keown is jsut as unhinged as he's always been and Gilberto clearly doesn't like English winters. Then again, who does?
