'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The European Champions Have No Chance?

'You can dress it up anyway you like, but the start to the season Manchester United have had is not good.'

These are the wise words of Andy Gray. Losing at Liverpool with such a dismal performance is more than 'not good': it is downright terrible. But does that automatically mean we are going to lose at Stamford Bridge tomorrow?

Paul Merson thinks so, he believes it will be a home win. Mark Lawrenson agrees with him, his prediction says it will be a smooth little 2-0 win for Chelsea.

The Mirror tries to wind us up by a pathetic little piece which claims Berbatov is still in Carragher's pocket and that we'll go bust with AIG. Wind-up, nothing else, but indicates the general mood.

Fact is it's been a long, long time since we had been treated as vast underdogs going into a game. Everyone is impressed with Scolari at the moment, the reason being that he knocked England out of major tournamentes three times in a row so he must be a genius.

This season Chelsea are supposed to play like Brazil with Deco pulling the strings and Scolari's masterful management should ensure a league title with over a hundred points amassed. Well, according to the media anyway.

Last time it was Arsenal in 2002/03: they were demi-gods from another planet, unbeatable, going to win the league with a 100 percent record, Arsene Wenger will be knighted, fast-tracked for sainthood and find the cure for cancer. We won the league, getting four points off the superteam.

Then in October 2004 we were supposed to be thrashed at Old Trafford by Arsenal because we were past it and poor and everything else. Arsenal managed one shot on target during the 90 minutes.

So write us off please, we love it.
