you may have already heard a very insightful interview with Adebayor. It’s a stark reality and a sign that he’s ready to move on. Both Ade and Arsene have vent their frustration back at the fans, and whilst I appreciate there has been some negatively, it’s not right from Ade or Arsene to attack the fans. Yes, some things have been misconstrued in the media, but you can see from the interview that there is a tense feeling with the fans and the team at the moment and it’s not healthy. Anyway, back to the game, and we went with a 4-5-1, with Denilson, Cesc and Diaby in the middle, Arshavin and Nasri on the wings and Van Persie up front – Song partnered Toure in defence, and it seems to be a theme and the end of the season away at Old Trafford. We played well and our link up play was good all round, but it is a difficult to break down United and they were disciplined in defence. Arsene spoke after the game and had several topics to talk about.
“I believe we played with a lot of heart and desire. When we played in the Champions League I think we were inhibited a bit by the occasion – it was too big perhaps – and in the second leg we had no chance to play the game. Today we showed we have the quality. We played a lot of authority on the pitch.
