2 fantastic goals by Man Utd, really nice football.

The game is worth a watch in general too as its a good game. Hopefully Arsenal will get one back to make it interesting.

Rooney is the best player in the world right now. End of.
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

Those goals were sublime. Maybe the two best I've seen in the PL this season.

Two unreal pieces of play from United have turned this match. Hopefully Arsenal will make a game of it second half though, not really buzzed who wins like.

1-3 now, still about 10 minutes go. Another for Arsenal could make it interesting

Always Utd, and Rooney should have scored at the end there, but his performance was magnificent.

Going to be tough when they come to Goodison, because they seem to be getting stronger.

Trust them to start clicking just as we are about to play them. Two good results this week for them.

Don't know what's going on but there has been (police?) sirens going constantly since the end of the match (I live nearby).

How do Utd do it? Their squad isn't the best on paper, yet they still pull it off.

Pure belief and confidence and players who produce on big occasions. Even Nani who can be shocking at times pulls it out in the big mtaches not just today either i remeber him thumping one past Liverpool a couple of years back.

L'Arse just can't do it anymore in the big games, it must be a mentality thing. Even the experienced leaders in the team, like Gallas, shy away and go missing. As for people who go missing at important times and in big games, there is no bigger perpetrator than Francesc Fabregas.

He was anonymous again today.

The signs were there in our game. The main difference was that Utd put their breakaways in the net.

Arsenal can play well in big games, but they haven't always won them even when they've clearly been the better side. Clearly this shows that they're lacking something both as a team and as individuals.

Players such as Song and Denilson look great when they're steamrollering supplicant opposition, but are they really that good?

I couldn't really say what either particularly excells at.

And Fàbregas, while being a very good player, lacks the pace when the opposition really steps it up. I first noticed this while watching him for Spain. He was noticeably slower than the other players in there. No great shame, but not something that a player supposedly on the same level as Iniesta and Xavi should be being showed up for.

odd game i thought. Utd were just clinical, and that tit Denilson cost Arsenal 2 goals at least. I bet Arsenal had more and better chances. and even at 3-0 always thought Arsenal had a chance
Murray won't ever win a slam. Mentally not good enough

I wouldn't say it's his lack of pace, that's not really a major attribute needed for a player of his style. You don't see many quick centre midfielders around, players like Xavi, Alonso, Pirlo and Scholes are as slow as they come.

I just think the likes of Xavi and Iniesta are more complete footballers and at the moment, more experienced players playing in a system that suits both of them perfectly.

Xavi and Iniesta are the best midfield paring of any football team in the world. Maybe even of all time.

Except a certain midfield we all know...

if you know yer history...
