I've noticed a lack of Arsenal supporters everywhere - and not a single Chelsea fan as far as the eye can see....not that I'm complaining.

Well I'm pretty much solo too - fancy joining forces on the CL thread against the mob of smug, annoying, twatty United fans........

4 then. With my hangover I am not thinking straight. I got drunk after we beat Chelsea to almost guarantee our 19th league title. Have I mentioned that?

Longer than 4 days then - did ManUre cheat their way to a victory then, you may have touched upon it - have I mentioned Spurs' epic draw against Blackpool?

Bryan Robson or Steve Bruce, in fact almost anyone but the "un-special-one".

Yeah, but at least you're showing yourself in public. All your fellow gooners have gone into hiding after stuffing us last week and thinking they were in with a chance.

What do you mean, "at the moment" ? We've been ridiculing them for years.

Why bother, it'll only end up with you sounding like you ate a lot of sour grapes

You won't see any of them again until the start of next season now.

That's mainly because judging by the posts many of you have been around a lot longer than me here and don't feel comfortable replying too directly .......yet

Although I hope none of my family back home reads me as I don't think joining forces with Spur fans will be regarded as a smart move

They're a bit smug aren't they? Convinced to support the best club in the world no matter what, I think Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan might've something to say about that... anyway, I live in Barcelona and I've been a bit brainwashed by colleagues at work, it'll be very easy for me to support Messi & Co. in the final, I couldn't do otherwise even if I wanted to..

Credit must be given though to ManUtd in these cases, if you take most of their players one by one they are out of date teabags compared to Barca's, yet collectively they often pull it off, why this doesn't happen in other clubs too is beyond me, I'm curious to see what'll happen after Fergie..

Don't know what number this is but:

** To a man, Chelsea are totally without desire to win, or backbone.

I wonder how long it's going to take the Russian to come to terms with the fact, that you can only have so many foreign players in a team before everyone in it is there purely for the money.

It'll never happen, purely because that's the only reason he's in it for - your own faults tend to make you blind to the same faults in others.

Inter Milan last year won treble with one national if I'm not mistaken
