    Another fortunate win for Arsenal.. but their arrogance sickens me. The referees always seem to favour the so called 'top four teams' week in, week out!

    Henry, a great player that he is, top scorer in the prem league for the last 3 season and His manager Wanger, a great manager, must learn to respect their opposition.

    People should be gracious in victory and defect, but I find Arsenal and Man U are two teams who show neither.

    I play sports and I am sure all others on this forum who play any type of competitive sport, will understand when I say, if I was a Wigan player I would not have shaken Henrys nor Wangers hand after the match.

    Got any examples of United being ungracious in defeat and victory. For Arsenal, there's the horrendous example of the way they badgered Van Nistelrooy after he missed the penalty. I don't ever remember United doing anything like that. Care to refresh my memory?

    well bro... Furgarson for a start and Nevilla (gary), the way they act after a game. But really its the way Man U (and Arsenal) players rush around the referee and Intimidate them when ever a decision goes against them

    In what game have United done that this season?

    You may be mistaking United with Chelsea.

    It was disgraceful what Henry did, he might be a great player but lacks class as a man

    I'm sure my memory has pictures of matches with hordes of United players harassing oponents and match officials when they don't like decisions - fairly ungracious behaviour really.....

    And Keane ending Haalands career and then admitting he did it on purpose......that's a classy act, very gracious and sporting......hopefully he'll either eventually get 5 years for the assault or someone will break his legs (preferably the latter).....

    Rant over

    Anyhoo, Chelsea are always ungracious these days, Arsenal have there mometns although regularly I think they're OK (not today mind you)....Liverpool - are they a top team??????

    To be honest that was the first game I have watched in ages, but as my gf was out all afternoon and I had just got in from a jog with my dog as the game started I just fancied watching it. I didn't have any particular favourite, but found myself shouting for Wigan thinking wow what a great way to escape the threat of relegation, by winning away at Arsenal, so was left gutted for them at the end. The Henry incident was just salt in the wound for me

    Are you speaking as a nuetral? what team do you support? I don't have the stats to hand as I am not an avid fan but off the top of my head if yopu ignored the carling cup, give the Fa cup a factor of 1, the league title a factor of say 1.5, the champions league title a factor of say 1.75, are you sure they would come out top in England, never mind all the European counties, I suspect that you are actually a liverpool supporter talking from the heart not the head.
