Arsenal were lucky at Old Trafford to start off and yesterday just showed why they are rated 4th in england, simply not good enough.aaronnorth said:we didnt play that well, we were just lucky Arsenal played worse than us
Yep but Arsenal were very lucky to come away from Manchester with just a 1-0 loss, to be fair Arsenal did not play very well in any of their legs, Man U should have been eliminated in the previous round if not again for some bad refereeing decisions and also UEFA banning the Porto coach for something unheard off at 3PM the day before the second leg match!!Nick16 said:Even arsenal should have had a penalty or two at old trafford a week ago.
10 men doesn't always hinder a team from performing, sometimes they up their game to compensate for the loss of a man, and yes it was not a red card offense, but a penalty is almost a clear goal, while a sending off is not.gratts said:Sorry guys, but these conspiracy theories against english clubs are utter tush!
That red card was hardly clear cut - if the ref was a man on a mission Abidal would've just got a yellow, or a foul wouldn't even have been given. Down to 10 men is hardly helping Barcelona!
