EPL - Arsenal/Manure 9/21

In the battle of the English Premier League front runners, Arsenal and Manure battled to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

Terrible officiating from the same ref that terribly officiated the Community Shield saw a bunch of bookings, and Patrick Vieira sent off.

After Arsenal conceded a penalty in the 93rd minute, Ruud van Nisteldive was kind enough to miss again. The Arsenal players let him know what they thought of that, and he got several shoves for his part in the Vieira incident.

Arsenal regains first place, 1 point ahead of Manura and Chelski.

Go Gunners!

f--- Chelski and f--- ManUre.

I'm not an Arsenal fan (I root for Liverpool), but at least the Gunners are better than ManU/Chelski.

And ManU always gets the benefit of the refs, but no different than what the Bulls got during their runs, what the Lakers get now in the NBA for example.

Scrappy game for sure, I imagine there will be repurcussions based on the reaction of the players, I did like the way all the arsenal players congratulated Ruud on his Penalty Miss.

I think for us Liverpool supporters the result was the best we could hope for. Only 3 points off the lead. Although Chelsea have a game in hand.

Next up for Liverpool is Olympic Lubbly Jubbly.

And how bad are Newcastle this early in the season

and I just see that Hoddle has been sacked...

As much as I hated to see the non-sportsmanlike conduct from the Arsenal players... RVN had it coming. He brought it upon himself.

As for Hoddle... that wasn't surprising, although I thought they might give him another couple of games. My money's on Souness taking that job (just a guess).

Glad to see some non-Manure supporters here. Liverpool is doing well after a poor start, and Michael Owen is always enjoyable. Here's hoping they beat out Manure and Chelski for 2nd place.

Unfortunate that Spurs fired Hoddle; they might get someone who can manage now.

Top Ten lies told by Alex Ferguson:

10. "He has not dived."
9. "I have enough problems with the FA of my own. I'll probably end up in [prison] and they'll get off."

This season I'm hoping Man City do well. I've always liked both Fowler and McManaman quite a bit, and it seems as if the club has become a bit of a home for wayward greats that were unappreciated at their former clubs.

On topic - I didn't catch the Arsenal - Man Utd match, but possibly Fox Sports Espanol will rebroadcast it this week...

Too bad I don't get FSW...

Still, I much prefer having Gol TV and FS Espanol than FSW. Looks like I'm watching Chelsea here in a minute.

My god.. did you see Van Nistleroy get kicked???

All I've seen so far is the 5 minutes of highlights on Sky Sports News. I'll catch the match later when it arrives.

Who needs to go to a website to get the upcoming games when I can just go to my "upcoming" list on the season pass?

Arsenal's true class shines through again. No wonder their disciplinary record is so bad.

Enjoy the docked points, Gunners...

Your star player (who happens to be one of the biggest cheats in the sport, but I digress) misses the easiest shot in any sport to gift Arsenal a 3 point swing, and that's the best you can come up with? How's Southampton this year?

Seems unlikely that they will be docked points. But, if they are, there's already a song ready:

You can stick your ****ing two points up your arse,
You can stick your ****ing two points up your arse,
You can stick your ****ing two points,
Stick your ****ing two points,
You can stick your ****ing two points up your arse.

Truth be told, Sunday's game didn't mean all that much. League matches in September rarely do. You just want to keep pace with the leaders, and make sure that you're there after the holidays. If you're lucky enough to be playing in the European tournaments, you want to focus on taking care of business there also.

Anelka's a great player. But I understood why Houllier didn't want to keep him. He has always been a headcase. Just look what happened earlier in his career. Houllier didn't want to spend 12 million on a risk like that, and I don't blame him.

And it looks like Liverpool are going to be getting Cisse next summer, so all will be well.

And it looks like no docked points, but 6 players are going to be banned for a few games (as well as Wenger) for Arsenal. At least somebody could've punched RVN in the face for a penalty like that.

As opposed to limiting your arguments to insults, name-calling, and blaming the refs.

Season just started and they got into your head already. You've already lost. Go Man U.

roy Keane actually spoke sense during the post-match interview when asked if it was a 3-horse race, as he included Liverpool

It was really interesting during the match that the mic was so close to keane when he was getting his yellow card. He was basically calm and telling the ref that it was never from behind.

So Chelsea gets no respect? If they can hold things together they are definitely a top three club. Liverpool will choke in the end, per usual.

OK, I misunderstood (not having seen the interview).

"Whoever finishes above Man U or Arsenal" -

They'll finish 1-2 or 2-1, with Chelsea Liverpool and (I hope) Man City rounding out the top 5.

Sorry, I looked.
But to list Owen and Pires as his heroes? I don't know about that. Sure, they might make a meal of a challenge more often than one would like to see, but they don't flat out dive like RVN.

Vieira deserved the yellow for kicking at RVN, but the first yellow was a bad call. He should have known better, though.

The best part of this is that a bunch of Americans (and BDB) are arguing about soccer.
