    Arsenal-Manchester United

    Looks like Arsenal was playing a bit out of control toward the middle/end of the second half. Hopefully this isn't the beginning of larger problems! What worries me is that it wasn't the younger players who were having the emotional issues--it was a couple of established veterans...oy vay....

    Anyone else's take?

    Also, I'm just kind of getting into Premier League soccer. Anything that I absolutely need to know?

    Thanks!

    The own goal was the big one, but Diaby almost amended for it on the next trip down the field.

    only thing you really need to know to start is its football, not soccer. pretty entertaining match today and really couldve gone either way. both teams were unlucky and lucky in different respects. arsenal should quit diving and maybe things will go their way

    I'm sure Arsenal can get better keeper than Almunia. I've never been impressed by him. Although Gallas-Vermaelen partnership seems to be working out ok.

    That was a pretty brutal own goal. No one was even close to him.

    You need to know one thing, and one thing only - bollocks to ManUre

    On another note, my fantasy team is doing well this week.

    you make me laugh. obviously every team has divers and ronaldo was pretty bad but being banned for such a blatant dive like eduardo is embarrassing. i lost some sympathy for him after his broken ankle. manure, you are pretty silly arent you

    If you ever go to an Arsenal - ManU match at Emirates wearing your Red Devil Jersey, you'd better get used to it.
