"At Manchester United we've been winning the Premier League for 3 years and they [the media] just
start talking about us in France. Arsenal haven't won a trophy in 5 years, they win 6-1 against
Everton and it's like they've won the World Cup!" It's not the first time Evra's insulted Arsenal.
Celtic midfielder Aiden McGeady was sent off for DIVING as the Hoops claimed a 1-0 win at Hibernian
to go level on points with SPL leaders Rangers. Just days ago, Arsenal frontman Eduardo was accused

nonsense which followed over where Arsene Wenger should sit," said Bevan. "I've spoken to Keith

Who remembers when Sir Alex Ferguson criticised the abusive fans and poor security at Emirates
Stadium? And Arsene Wenger replied with this: "We always want to respect our opponents and respect
the dugout because the way we want to behave at Arsenal is to respect everybody." Wenger got sent
from the dugout by the fourth official today after [.
Mike Dean's decision to send Arsene Wenger off for the last 10 seconds of the game was absolutely
ludicrous! We were also denied a stonewall penalty after Darren Fletcher felled Andrey Arshavin and
then Dean awards Rooney a dubious pen straight into the second half! Let's be honest, even a
neutral could see that the referee [.
Crozillian striker Eduardo looks set to start against Man United tomorrow evening. The experienced

Eduardo may have been charged for deceiving the referee, but his goalkeeping opponent Artur Boruc

now engaged to Sara Mannei, 24 the stunner [.
Manchester United's fans are already moaning about Arsenal's apparent 'luck' in the Champions
League group stage draw. On a popular United forum, many of the members lamented the Gunners' draw

have the easiest group.

ArsÃ¨ne Wenger is not one to take other team's for granted, but deep down, he's probably pleased
with the outcome of this evening's Champions League Group Stage draw. The Gunners' managed to avoid
several European giants in Real Madrid and Juventus, instead, drawing Dutch champions AZ Alkmaar,
Greek champs Olympiakos and current Jupiler League winners Standard [.
Wales starlet Aaron Ramsey could be deputise for the injured Cesc Fabregas tonight, as Arsenal take

French midfielder Abou Diaby's first-half double and goals from William Gallas and Aaron Ramsey

impressive statement of intent with last weekend's 6-1 victory at [.
Arsenal have half-a-dozen players sidelined for today's game against Pompey â€“ Carlos Vela
(ankle), Theo Walcott (back), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring), Samir Nasri (broken leg), Johan Djourou

It's no secret that the style and success of Barcelona's 2008-2009 team has inspired Arsenal to opt
for a 4-3-3 formation this season.Â Without getting carried away after only two competitive games,
it is clear that the formation is the best way to get the most out the abundance of attacking
minded players that Arsenal [.
I believe the Gunners need to purchase just two more players, but there is the potential that
Arsenal may buy as many as four players. This will depend on whether Emmanuel Eboue stays at
Arsenal and that Barcelona's interest is not serious. Eboue is obviously flattered by the interest
shown by the Blaugrana and I'm sure [.
