I hope this turn out into one of them bad blood battles from the days of Keane vs Viera with men fighting in the tunnel, threatening harm to family, looking to break men foot with tackle.

The more redcards and suspensions, the better for Chelsea when we ress it on either side in the Finals.

Fergie would take 1-0 win

United boss admits he would be 'delighted' with 1-0 first-leg win
Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he would be 'delighted' to win 1-0 against Arsenal at Old Trafford in their UEFA Champions League semi-final first-leg on Wednesday.

The United boss described the tie as the 'perfect semi-final' and also highlighted the importance for his side to keep a clean sheet.

The two teams have met just once this season with the Gunners coming out on top after winning 2-1 at Emirates Stadium way back in November.

The 67-year-old has a full squad to choose from for the clash apart from skipper Gary Neville who will miss out with the foot injury he picked up in the 2-0 win over Portsmouth.

"There will be more vigilance with both teams aware that they don't want to lose a goal particularly on your own ground," he said.

"We need to win without losing a goal. I would be delighted to win 1-0. I would happily take that to the Emirates.

Full squad
"Everyone trained today apart from Gary Neville so that's a strong position to be in going into the semi-final of the European Cup. John O'Shea came on as sub on Saturday and he is fit.

"And yes I've got to pick a team I hope that it is the right one and I hope it wins and I have got plenty of options of course. So that will wrestle with me for the next 24 hours.

"It's an untypical semi-final because it is two English teams but the principles are always the same - you hope you win the game and don't lose a goal, that's always the case in a European tie.

"It won't be decided tomorrow you can be sure of that. There is a lot of football left at the Emirates.

"Looking at the tie and looking at the players on view you are thinking that this is a perfect semi-final.

"It's full of terrific footballers and both teams play good football and it could be that way. It has an appetising look about it."

Ferguson also admitted that he was considering starting Carlos Tevez alongside Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov after the Argentinian's influential performance after coming off the bench at half-time against Tottenham on Saturday.


Influential
"The performance of the second half and Carlos Tevez's introduction certainly changed the game and that is not lost on me," he highlighted.

The former Aberdeen manager also adds that he is not surprised by the Premier League's dominance of this season's competition with three English sides in the last four.

"The top four (in the Premier League) are probably the best teams in Europe now," he claimed.

"That's proved with the three teams in the semi-finals again. Last year we had an all English final and we could have an all English final again."

I does wonder how the arse reporters does understand Fergie in press conferences, much less try to quote him. I feel most of them quoted sentences is 'fill in the blanks'

kinda disappointed with the lack of shit talk from both managers in the lead up to this clash.

they said they are both maturer and have gained respect for each other and they will let their sides do the talking

Massive game today... should be a thing of beauty.. The Stretford End and West Stand will have 2 massive mosaic's to greet the player
1 is BELIEVE like vs Barca last season and the other is a montage of i think Giggs celebrating vs Arsenal in 99 after the amazing goal

Squad selection is the thing that everyone is wondering about

it's either going to be

VDS                             VDS

O'Shea                        O'Shea
Rio                              Rio
Vidic                            Vidic
Evra                            Evra

Ronaldo                       Ronaldo
Fletcher/Anderson         Fletch/Ando
Carrick                        Carrick
Rooney                        Rooney

Tevez                           Giggs
Berba                           Berba

and there is still a Park option....   Fergie have it tough this rounds... go with the fantastic 4 and run riot or go with Giggsy and keep it calm and look for a narrow 1-0 or possibly 2-0

   They don't need to do that.  They clearly have more than enough talent to go toe-to-toe with manu.....if they would only take a decent shot or two instead of trying to walk in the goal with the ball.  Their passing game is a beautiful thing until they try to get way too friggin' cute with it.

Wow! what a game of football! ManU impressive with their speed of play and to me look unstoppable. Vidic and Rio are class defenders and one thing I notice with their composure & positioning they seldom foul to give up free kicks in crucial areas. The whole ManU squad contributing and their midfield blanketing Arsenal middle.
All credit to Arsenal they eh just forming a block of 10 and waiting for errors, in the last 15 minutes they playing themselves back into the game. Maybe switching Nasri with Fabragas will give them more creative options from deeper, but Nasri working he socks off.
Young Gibbs getting exploited and Silvestre for such an experienced player always seems to be caught out of position often.
Both teams should be  :applause: for the entertainment value of this game.

Wow! what a game of football! ManU impressive with their speed of play and to me look unstoppable. Vidic and Rio are class defenders and one thing I notice with their composure & positioning they seldom foul to give up free kicks in crucial areas. The whole ManU squad contributing and their midfield blanketing Arsenal middle.
All credit to Arsenal they eh just forming a block of 10 and waiting for errors, in the last 15 minutes they playing themselves back into the game. Maybe switching Nasri with Fabragas will give them more creative options from deeper, but Nasri working he socks off.
Young Gibbs getting exploited and Silvestre for such an experienced player always seems to be caught out of position often.
Both teams should be  :applause: for the entertainment value of this game.
Alumina  :applause:

yeah boy he really settle into the game second half, once Diaby gave him a little more support. Fabregas was not at his best, I surprise he did not drop deeper and push on Nasri behind Adebayor for a different look & some dribbling. I always hearing Bendtner still young and give him time, but he look like he wearing concrete boots. Kolo is ah dam leggo beast! Dam!
ManU  really get blank today from Alumina and on that kind of form they look like the CL Champions they are. i really enjoyed this game.

Man U deserved this victory today.

They were very impressive in their closing down of Arsenal.  A lot of work there.

As many have pointed out...ALmunia was immense or else the score would have been greater.  But I also like Song.  He's going to be awesome in years to come.  He already very good.  Same with Anderson for Man U

   If bendtner was a snake and yuh squeeze him is only shit would come out.  arsenal really have a quality side with quality young players (Song is a far more skillful, far more composed version of his uncle) and I like Sagna from day one.  Is the midfield that let them down today.  No pressure going forward to push Adebayor.  Walcott once again showed what a dynamic player he can be and Toure.....well, he is probably arsenal's most solid and consistent player.

Bendtner make KJ look like Pele ... how that man get a professional contract to play football is beyond my comprehension. Maybe they needed an extra attacker and pull one of the ball boys.

For all the shite Silvestre play all game, he had a big time saving header.

With all that youth on dey side, you would expect Arsenal players to be faster to the ball.

Almunia and the crossbar saved Arsenal from huge embarassment. Ah wonder if they wouldve taken a 0-0 draw by having to play defensive, or playing half-hearted like that and losing 1-0.

How Vidic didn't win the PFA award over a man who come on for a pigeon sweat is a farce.

Will CRonaldo ever stop throwing tantrums?

Everyone played well for United while Gibbs and Alumunia were tops for Arsenal

No need to wildly exaggerate to make yuh point.

KJ WISH he had touches and close control like Bentdner.

Yes Bentdner is a shithound in de Arsenal system but when yuh pass de ball to him, de ball eh bouncin 2 feet away and ting.  Doh try dat.

Only saw the second half- Man U never looked stretched and many a time Arsenal passed the ball in the attacking third with no purpose.  Man U's back line sat deep and closed down the attacking wing play very quickly....By Keeping Adebayor infront of them at all times and working hard to double cover, and thus neutralize Walcott's speed on the outside, Man U gave Arsenal very little to play with despite the additional gap in the middle afforded to them by a deep lying back line...... and the gunners had no answer.

Arsenal would need a huge improvement to turn the tide in the return leg.

C.Ronaldo is so annoying to watch- I've never seen anyone appear to enjoy football less than this guy.  I feel like it's gotten worse with his increased stardom which (if true) is so lame... His bullet off the bar was priceless.

arsene has no choice for the next game...i feel we will see a front trio of adebayor, bendtner, eduardo (or at the very least adebayor and somebody to share the workload).   the best defense is offense.

gibbs turn up ronaldo on the wing, the crowd ball with that one hahaha.   on the real though, arsenal has to put in a vastly improved performance to get anything next week.  ferguson won the tactical battle yesterday without a doubt.   oh if only arshavin was eligible for CL...

Add the options of Van Persie, Arshavin, Rosicky & a fit Eduardo to the gunners line up... and it's a totally different look going foward for Arsenal- one that could (more seriously) challenge for trophies.

At 1-0, Arsenal has to feel ok going to the Emirates.

marginal call ... even though the ball wasn't played to him, I think it was Berbatov that was taking a slow stroll from an offside position and Giggs couldve been 1/2 step behind the last defender.

Camera angle wasn't in line, so we have to go with the linesman call

It was one of those calls that you see waved on or waved off an equal amount of times....If Man U was trailing, they would have more likely gotten the call I think... The more I watch football the more I wonder how much psychology plays into referee's calls.

Stunner...not sure what that has to do with anything. Doesn't really matter how other refs have called in the past. There are instances where payers in similar positions to Giggs get the benefit of the doubt. if you think the call was good..cool. I think most people agree with that based on the responses (or lack thereof) to my question. But bringing up what happened to Bentdner kinda irrelevant. Unless you want to dig up every close offside call that did not go the way of the striker..And you will find many that didn't...But you'll probably fins just as many that did.
