Carrick Refuses To Give Up

Well, of course it is. The thing is guys that with the April we have you should not blow it before that. We'll have enough difficult games without losing the supposedly easier ones.

Carrick, who grabbed a consolation, can't be singled out for criticism as he did what he could during his cameo appearance. And let's hope he means it that the lads still believe that the title is a possibility.

"There are still games to play," he said.

"I don`t think Arsenal will go the rest of the season without dropping points. If they did, fair play to them. There are still going to be ups and downs in the title race, and hopefully there will be more ups for us and we can overtake them."

No, they won't, that's obvious. The question is whether we can step out from our own shadow. I say that for a start it would be great to have the Hargreaves-Anderson central midfield back - that produced our best performances of the season.

Your chances are pretty much gone I'd say, but we still have a good chance here.

at the moment, all we are seeing from utd is talk. its all very well talking a good game but Arsenal seem to be playing it . If ferguson doesnt start picking the right midfield (anderson/hargreaves - who incidently cost more than the whole Arsenal first XI) then you have no chance this season. As for chelsea, zzzzzzzzzzzzz

I can't see a one man team winning anything. When that man is missing through injury, suspension, whatever, your tosswink team are crap. I do believe though that you can possibly hold onto 3rd spot.

Well May isn't too far away, star, in fact it's quite a short time, but you're only hoping for success, whereas we hold all the aces. Just you hope Rooney stays injury free, stops his cheating and keeps his gob shut. I'll pray that ferguson continues to play Brown, O'Shea, VDS, Scholes and Giggs. If he does your best bet would be to settle for 3rd.

Settle for 3rd? and who will stay at the 2nd? Chelsea by any chance? that's impossible... the thing is, it's not over yet, we still have the chance to take the title, and if you only tie two of your games, the tables will turn.

WHAT A PLAYER! and by the way, if we are such a "crap" team as you suggest; why did you all cream yourselfs when you managed a draw at home gain us. fickle little gooners and their farcilcle team. enjoy your breif forray at the op of the league, god knows you tubborn little gooners deserves a bit of success. oh no scratch that, you arrogant (unts deserve nothing!
