United - It`s a Strange World!

United - It`s a Strange World!

With a reputed media blackout enforced, supposedly before the Liverpool defeat, grasping some quotes to comment on has been particularly galling.

For the first time ever I`ve had to lower myself to doing a bit of social networking but we`ve come up with a real corker.

Rio Ferdinand may have missed the match, through injury, but he has a few damning words on his Twitter page that sum the match up perfectly,

"Bad result today, no excuses."

But, this weekend present us with an ideal opportunity to turn matters around. We can forget about the pressure of the Premier League and focus on the FA Cup.

Having seen off Crawley in the last round, the quarter-final draw paired us with the winners of the Arsenal / Orient tie. Although many may have hoped for Leyton Orient there was almost an inevitability that we would be facing Arsenal.

But who`d have thought we`d be facing Arsenal looking to avoid a third successive defeat?

Many may have wished for easier opponents to see United get back to winning ways but just consider the impact it will have if we can get back to winning ways against our main contenders for the title. What a lift that would give the place!

Almost ironic really when you consider that the FA Cup was a trophy we didn`t deem worthy of our attention when we were chasing world domestic domination a few years back, strange how things turn around isn`t it?

Arsenal can do a FA Cup and CL double for all I care, I just want the PL back. Arsenal's mobility will tear our midfield a part and subsequently our defense and so i'm expecting either a loss or a replay. Preferably the latter as we may have some key players back then to challenge at the Emirates.

I'm expecting a much more tolerant, disciplined United against Arsenal.

"Irony"? Is that what you call it then?
