The invincibles one the greatest teams to grace the EPL. If only their egos didn't get too big, they could have stayed and help the current team.
A family of Man Utd Fans? Wow, at least at the current time, you can brag about being above them for now.

Before this becomes an Arsenal love-fest I've gotta throw in my hat as a Man U fan.  Derby? Tough game? Pfft, bicycle kick your way past it.  I saw the last twenty minutes of the Liverpool Sparta Prague game... It was a boring inter-euro club at it's worst.
 
So do Arsenal have a chance to get the title this year? I think its a possibility.  Wenger thinks so with him putting full strength team against Wolves days before the Barca match.  United just have to not fudge it up.  But United have two games against Chelsea and (what I think's really the decider: one against Arsenal at Emirates)  Arsenal have easier games coming up but United seem to be doing their typical thing of playing alrightish for the first two thirds of the season then leaving the last third to pull off a win.
 
Also, do you think anyone besides who's in the bottom three at the moment are going down this year?

@.o0Johnny0o.: Thanks for the thumbs up,  
on paper chelsea are hard team, but if we are talking about consistency, then man utd could take them,  
maybe west brom or blackpool.

 Iam a united fan , cue the hate coming my way.  Top of the league even playing quite average most of the season so far.  Thing iwth arsenal is they can only play one way and they always seem to say next year if they dont win anything its been 5 years already need to get something soon or they in dnager of slipping behnind the likes of spurs and city.

No, he was there for training. To get to know the team. After watching the Arsenal vs Barcelona match, I was hoping to see another great match. How disappointed I was to watch my own team fail to impress.

I'm a born and bred Liverpool fan.

"Thing iwth arsenal is they can only play one way and they always seem to say next year if they dont win anything its been 5 years already need to get something soon or they in dnager of slipping behnind the likes of spurs and city."

I still believe Arsenal are better than United. It's just United get the right results against the lower teams.

He's targeting the United game to return. Fingers crossed.

@Supreme Marvel:  my resoponce to Arsenal being better would simply be playing nice football isnt winning them anything. United maybe scrappy but we have won alot of stuff in tha last 5 years and lets not forget  sub 3 years ago we where the best offensive team in the league with rooney tevez and ronaldo.

That's " were", not where. :P Tevez and Ronaldo aren't at your club any more.  And like I said, you get the important victories which is why you win leagues. My position on Arsenal being the better team, still stands.

@Supreme Marvel:  since its your opinion i wont argue it. All i will say is the history books would back united as being better due them having their name on trophies. I respect Wengers approach to football but his team should have won something major in the last 5 years not winning a single major trophhy in that time is an underachivement in my eyes.

Hopefully, take no offence to this, because Arsenal are my 2nd favourite English, but Barcelona are my 2nd favourite team world wide. I want Barcelona to win, but I still want an exciting game.

I agree, the team they have should win trophies. The only thing I can see them winning anything this year is the Premiership.

@lazystudent:  Barcerlona went through  6 years with out trophies, alot teams including yours had gone through periods of not winning anything. Things like this are normal in terms of sports.

I think our game will be hard. Hopefully Carroll will be back for that.  Hopefully we can get that 4th spot at the expense of Chelsea. :D

@Supreme Marvel:  its what Carroll is aiming his come back for. It should be a good game if both teams show up. United have been very hard to predict of late other than being  scrappy.  I think spurs may still nick 4th myslef  they dont have that tough a run excpet for two games. But you never know that 6 points is gonna go along way this year.

While I'm a Barca fan through and through, I have to commend Chelsea for their effort even though they only won because Messi missed the penalty. I'm backing them to win the Champions League. Better them than Madrid or Bayern.
