For those of you who dig premiership soccer, the match that should decide who will be the champion this year is currently under way. So far so good, Arsenal is winning 1:0 after a goal by Wiltold in the 57th. Will post later with the final score.
It's over!!! ARSENAL DID IT!
The final score was 1:0 for arsenal. I'm not sure if it was broadcasted here, i'm deprived of all the good channels anyways. I just got the score from the net. Man, that calls for some heineken!
^^^hehe. Ok, let's just recap the last season and compare the two teams:
Arsenal vs The almighty Man U.
3:1 (ouch) in the league
4:0 (ouch x 2) in the Worthington Cup
1:0 on Old Trafford, a game that "the powerhouse" Man U. could not afford to win, hell, they couldn't even afford to tie!
So should i stop there?
Ok, you mentioned champions league. Arsenal, true, didn't go through past the second phase. Who ended up advancing from that group? Bayer. What theam eliminated Man Utd later on? That's right, Bayer Leverkusen. So if you ask me, Man Utd didn't do much better against the same oponent.
So all in all, Arsenal won the double, while United got fuck all! Hell, they will prolly end up 3rd in the league! Get used to it, Greg. Once Sir Alex retires as the manager, they will be lucky to finish 3rd
YES Vinder....Keep the faith man! We have to go watch a Champions League game together next year around crunch time for sure! If you love United, then you have to meet my other Manc Scum-crazy friends....
Well, seeing how i'm a polack, I will be cheering for Poland first and foremost. But I do like the style of football England is playing, so i will be for them aswell, as long as they won't be playing against Poland. Hey, maybe we should get together at some pub for some world cup action?
^^^DEFENCE! Defence in the first part of the season. It's as simple as that. I mean I hate to say it, cuz i consider him one of the best keepers, but some of the stunts barthez pulled in the begging, ie. the game with Arsenal. And his partners in defence weren't much better, either. I think they made a mistake letting Stam go so easily.
Mind you, you have to give a credit where it's due, and Arsenal did play a phenomenal football, especially this year. They won 12 games in a row! They only tied three times, and didn't loose a single league game in 2002. Hell, the truth be told, I didn't think they would be the champs this year. They far exceeded my expectation.
