As a Heathen, I'm mentally tough enough to handle any disappointments. With all the ABU's we have out there, we have it in us from an early age.
Right now I'd settle for the Premiership title, Barca are going to be a tougher side to beat than RM would have been.. assuming no-cock ups from our lot tomorrow night.

Choose to support Steven Gerrard, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Gareth Barry, David James and the other scrotes that make up the squad. Choose to welcome back Jamie “at least it wasn’t England” Carragher. Choose booing your own players at half-time, full-time and when they touch the ball. Choose relaying your pitch every four months at a cost of £125k a time and still getting it wrong. Choose to call Rooney a fat bastard all season and wish Colleen had a stillbirth, then chant his name until your throat is raw for 5 weeks. Choose delusion of the highest degree. Choose Carlsberg adverts. Choose 44 years of **** all. Choose penalties. Choose scapegoats. Choose to forget it all in August and go back to Muuuuuuunnnniiiiccccchhhhhh. Choose England.

Agreed. He was a great buy for about a week.

Indeed. A complete, 24 carat knob.

Bebe - possibly the worst buy in a list of cack ones. (Djemba Djemba, Kleberson, Veron, Tiabi, Obertan, etc etc).

I'm worried about your bromance with Hargreaves though.

Are you? I wasn't, but I am now. It's an image I'm finding difficult to shake.

Ah don't get all upset, that's football the world over. Is it really so different in Spain or Italy, same bunch of brainless turds, supporters as fickle as you like, shit adverts (albeit for San Miguel and Peroni rather than Calsberg)

And please, Aimee Walton.........pretty??? The Sun should be sued for libel!

Copy and paste. I wouldn't waste my energy on these twats. Spent a fortune following them round SA - bastards.

United>England.

And I agree about Aimee Walton. Although I've had worse.

Well, that's done and dusted - effectively.

Chelsea were very average yesterday, I thought Webb did ok but got a few wrong. Ivanovic should have gone at least.

We'll scrape a draw next week then play a full reserve team in the last match so we're fresh for Barca.

2 more European Cups, then Fergie can retire.

I thought so earlier this season but think he has shot himself in the foot with his Barca / UEFA comments and poor showing in the games with RM. Shame - the PL seems more lively when he is around. Sadly, I think it will be David moyes now.

Funny how the small clubs can get motivated when they play the big boys, yet struggle against fellow mid-table teams. Everyone seems to raise their game against United, Chelsea, Spurs etc - but when playing WBA, Stoke, Sunderland etc - they come undone. Ergo, Arsenal are no longer a big club. Oh well, it wasn't fun while it lasted.

It's Monday, and it's early, not gutsy enough, but if there's an Arsenal fan out there....
I'm noticing a lack of Arsenal supporters here, I should never have blown my cover, I'm alone here and somehow struggling.. not fair at all :-(
