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

United - Angels With Dirty Faces?

The purists just love to heap praise on Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal side with their tippy-tappy football, but Sir Alex Ferguson isn`t fooled.

On the eve of the fixture, at Old Trafford, against Arsenal, Sir Alex has spoken about the steely edge Arsenal have about them this season when he`s remarked,

"Don`t be deceived by the popular view that the Gunners play 'pretty football` but can be kicked out of games. Arsene has possibly encouraged this belief because earlier in the season he was berating two or three teams for being overly physical."

"I`m sure he saw it that way but other managers tell me that the present Arsenal side are one of the toughest in the League and the most physical since the days of Martin Keown. They place nice football and weave some intricate patterns but there is also an edge that accounts for their presence as title challengers. His boys are not the lilywhites portrayed by their admirers. How many players have they had sent off this season?"


And that`s telling them!

"And that's telling them!" ?? ...as an Arsenal fan i view Sir Red Noses words as nothing but a compliment.

Ferguson's usual mind games before the face off. His way of giving a reminder to the referee that the game is being played at Old Trafford and that United are due the normal favours that come their way.
