I have a few issues to raise about Steven Gerrard's impending departure from Liverpool FC. I believe when a football club produces a rare gem like Gerrard has been to Liverpool, they should be less inclined to letting him go. Real Madrid kept Fernando Hierro till forever and despite the trials and tribulations of Iker Casillas, they are still holding on to him. Imagine the sudden exit of Paul Scholes from Manchester United. He was back 6 months later simply because the club was too hasty in letting him call it a day. Arsenal made the mistake of letting Patrick Vieira leave so much younger than when Dennis Bergkamp was. Manchester City then had the benefit of using his experience to build the formations of what is now looking like a dynasty. Steven Gerrard came on against Arsenal while his team was behind and made defence splitting passes for the rest of the game which inspired his team to equalize while a man down. Nobody in the present Liverpool team has half the ability of Gerrard. Hopefully they have a ...

Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira has been tipped to beat Manchester United legend Roy Keane in a fight.
Patrick Vieira says he admires the honesty shown by his old adversary Roy Keane in his latest book, as he responded to the comments made by the former Manchester United skipper about their once fierce rivalry. Irishman Keane suggested he may have come out second best if had been drawn into a fight with the towering Vieira in his autobiography "The Second Half," with the French World Cup winner offering his response to those comments. "I haven't read it, but I have heard a lot about it," said Vieira in quotes appearing in the Daily Mirror. "If there was a fight, it would take a long time to beat him and I would end up with a few cuts. I don't think he would give up easily! "I'm not surprised at all about how honest he has been in the book. That's because the way he wrote the book is the way he was as a player. He's not the kind of person to go halfway. He's either everything or nothing. I think the book is him." Respect has grown between Keane and Vieira in recent years, with the pair working together as T ...

Away from the pitch, Arsenal have flourished. The move to the Emirates Stadium has had a huge impact on the clubs economics. In 2011/12 (the last season for which we have access to complete financial figures for every club), Arsenal turned over a staggering £235 million. That’s the third-highest figure in England, and, according to football finance blogger Swiss Ramble, it could rise to £300 million by the end of this season. Arsenal’s profits are impressive too. In 2011/12 they recorded the highest profit before tax of any Premier League club (£37 million). That’s no anomaly, either: the last five years have seen the Gunners rake in an incredible £190 million in profit. While other football clubs financially implode around them, Arsenal have not made a loss since 2002. Unfortunately, it’s almost as long since Arsenal won a major trophy. It is now more than eight years since a Patrick Vieira penalty kick allowed them to beat Manchester United to win the FA Cup. Ross Kinnaird/Getty Images From ...
*GREAT MOMENT* GGM 01: Arsenal go 49 league games unbeaten Played 49, Won 36, Drawn 13, Lost None. The Arsenal squad which set a new unbeaten league record between May 2003 and October 2004 will live long in the memory and forever in the history books. The Gunners' historic run actually began amid the ruins of a failed Premiership bid. Arsenal shook off the disappointment of a home defeat against Leeds which handed Manchester United the title to thrash Southampton 6-1 at Highbury on May 7, 2003. No one had an inkling about what would follow. Arsenal started the 2003/04 campaign in style with four straight wins but almost came unstuck at Old Trafford in game No 8 of their run. Ruud Van Nistelrooy's late penalty cannoned off the crossbar and Arsenal escaped with a 0-0 draw. It was the closest shave of the entire 49-game sequence. For the most part Arsenal brushed aside all-comers home and away. There were memorable wins at Elland Road, Stamford Bridge and Anfield, plus some great goals along the way. Robert ...

Former England midfielder Paul Scholes has launched a scathing attacking on Arsenal, suggesting their midfielder Jack Wilshere has not progressed as a player under the guidance of Gunners manager Arsene Wenger. Many observers have suggested that Arsenal's 22-year-old playmaker was the most gifted midfielder England have produced since Scholes was in his pomp for Manchester United and on the international stage, but the 11-time Premier League title winner begs to differ. "When Jack Wilshere came on the scene, what a top young player he looked,"suggested Scholes."Injuries haven't helped him, but his development from 17 years of age, he doesn't look any better player now than he did when he was 17. "He needs people like [Patrick] Vieira, characters like that, to take him on to the next level. Characters and leaders are important. You play Arsenal now, get stuck in about them and you've won the game." The outspoken Scholes was equally forthright in condemning Arsenal manager Wenger and his team, in a week whe ...
My MANCHESTER UNITED VIEW Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Gary Neville. All players who wore that armband and led a Manchester United team full of character and resilience. Our squad lacks character now. Some of the players we have don't embody that United mentality. No passion, no desire nothing. It pained me yesterday watching Patrice Evra, our Captain on the day, shake hands and share a jokes with Pablo Zabaleta and Vincent Kompany in the tunnel before the game. Really, is that what the rivalry has become? A meet and greet for the players? Have they lost the idea of what this rivalry means to the fans? (Or any other rivalry for that matter). Roy Keane would never be in the tunnel laughing it off with Patrick Vieira. We're losing our identity, and it's alarming. We've gone from Fergie saying "i'll knock Liverpool off their perch." to Moyes saying: "We aspire to be like City." Really? A kick in the teeth for every Manchester United fan. I feel let down, i feel betrayed. We offer suppo ...
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Manuel Pellegrini has been slapped with a three-match European ban by UEFA for comments made about Swedish referee Jonas Eriksson. The Manchester City boss was furious after he saw his side lose 2-0 against Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash. Pellegrini apportioned the bulk of the blame on Eriksson, who he claims cheated City out of being competitive against the Spanish giants. David Moyes has identified the answer to his midfield woes at Manchester United in the 21-year old William Carvalho.

Manchester City are keen on striking a deal for Birmingham City's highly rated teenage midfielder, Reece Brown, Goal understands. The 17-year-old signed pro forms with the Midlands club at the end of January and is already part of the first-team set-up at St Andrews, having featured in four Championship games this season. Brown has represented England at youth level and has been watched on a few occasions by City's Elite Development Squad manager, Patrick Vieira. The two clubs are in the process of developing closer ties, with City having sent promising youngsters Albert Rusnak and Emyr Huws on loan to Birmingham during the January transfer window. City's interest in Brown is part of a clear recruitment drive to prepare for the future, with Nigeria Under-17s stars Musa Yahaya, Kelechi Iheanacho and Chidi Nwakali all set to join the club in the coming months. Goal understands that Manuel Pellegrini's side also beat off interest from Manchester United and Barcelona to secure a deal for 20-year-old Argentine ...
London – Premier League leaders Arsenal has been dismissed by many critics as a credible title challenger despite its impressive start. The time has come for the Gunners to underline their credentials as they travel to fourth-place Manchester City - which has yet to lose a point at home this season - before hosting Chelsea. Chasing it first Premier League title since 2004, Arsene Wenger's team leads the standings by five points ahead of Liverpool, which travels to Tottenham on Sunday. Defending champion Manchester United cannot afford another slip-up at Aston Villa following two consecutive losses that have left the club trailing 13 points behind in the title race. Here are five things to know about this weekend's matches in the Premier League: LACK OF LEADERSHIP? Arsenal's resurgence this season has left Patrick Vieira in awe, though the former Gunner feels Arsene Wenger's team might eventually pay for its lack of a real leader in the dressing room. Vieira, who won the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 Europ ...
A fascinating study of one of football's most infamous personality clashes between former midfield enforcers Roy Keane of Manchester United and Arsenal's Patrick Vieira.
The former Gunners captain has dismissed the north London side's title chances on account of a perceived "lack of leadership" within Arsene Wenger's ranks Patrick Vieira does not believe that former club Arsenal will win the Premier League this season because they cannot "win games playing badly". The Frenchman, who now coaches Manchester City's Under-21 side, lifted the title three times during his nine-year spell in north London. Arsenal have not won any silverware since Vieira converted the winning penalty in a shootout against Manchester United in the 2005 FA Cup final, though, and the 37-year-old believes the Gunners still lack the ability to win ugly. “When you look at Arsenal, they play fantastic football. But sometimes you need to win games playing badly, and I don't think Arsenal are capable of that at the moment,” the Frenchman told the Daily Mirror. "Maybe there is a lack of leadership - they don't have a Tony Adams, Martin Keown or Sol Campbell. These are players who can be leaders on or o ...
Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has revealed he started the infamous tunnel row between the Gunners and Manchester United in 2005. Vieira sparked a hostile exchange between the two bitter rivals at Highbury as the players lined up in the tunnel ahead of kick-off. The bust-up was partially captured by television cameras, with United's Roy Keane responding angrily after Vieira exchanged words with Gary Neville. United went on to win the Premier League clash 4-2, with neither side punished for the fracas, and former France star Vieira admitted he caused the tunnel chaos in an ITV documentary, Keane and Vieira: The Best of Enemies, to be screened on Tuesday. "I started it," Vieira said. "I was cool, I was really calm, I was smiling at him - and then he lost it. "When we played at Old Trafford his (Gary Neville's) tackling was flying in on Robert Pires and he was doing it on purpose, and I said 'listen, we are not at Old Trafford here, this is Highbury'. "So I said to him 'if you touch Robert, I will come after ...
Head-to-head The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 12 league and cup games against the Gunners (W9, D2, L1). This will be Arsene Wenger's 50th game against United as Arsenal manager. He has won 15 of the previous 49 (excluding penalty shoot-outs). Manchester United - The Red Devils have won back-to-back Premier League games for the first time under manager David Moyes. Fourteen of United's last 19 league goals have been scored or assisted by Robin Van Persie or Wayne Rooney. Patrice Evra will become the third Frenchman to make 250 Premier League appearances, following in the footsteps of Arsenal duo Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. Arsenal - Victory would give Arsenal their highest ever points tally after 11 Premier League matches. Arsenal are the only Premier League club to have scored in every game this season. The last team to shut-out the Gunners was David Moyes' Everton in a 0-0 draw at the Emirates on 16 April. Prior to this weekend, only five players had assisted four or more Premier Lea ...

Article on SkySports. makes me quite giddy at the thought of this midfield purring away and stopping everything in it's tracks! COYS SD "Rate the central core of any Premier League team and it's not long before you're remembering the benchmark standard set by Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit in the late 1990s. In the first of Petit's three seasons at Arsenal, the creative-destructive duo claimed a double before heading back to their homeland to put the World Cup to rights as well. Even though the Gunners failed to retain their crown in 1998-99, the pair were arguably even better in that campaign and both were picked for the PFA Team of the Year. Manchester United's Roy Keane and Paul Scholes are the main rivals to the Frenchmen when considering the greatest midfield partnership of the last 20-odd years, but it's arguably the Petit-Vieira axis that's referenced the most. However, consistent two-man combos are much rarer these days. Squad rotation is the norm, and with three attackers favoured in the forwa ...
PARLOUR ON FELLANI The Gunners have met the Belgium midfielder's release clause and the club's former midfielder is hopeful he will add the steel so sorely lacking since the Frenchman's departure Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes Marouane Fellaini could prove to be the club's belated replacement for Patrick Vieira if the Gunners are able to seal the Everton star's signature. It was exclusively revealed earlier this month that the Gunners had activated the release clause in the Belgian's contract and are now awaiting permission to approach the 25-year-old as they look to flex their financial muscle this summer. And Parlour believes Fellaini is the kind of player his former club have been missing ever since Vieira's departure in 2005 - the year Arsenal last won silverware by beating Manchester United on penalties in the FA Cup final. When asked whether Fellaini could prove the closest thing the club have had to their former captain, Parlour - who was speaking at the launch of the 2013-2014 Barc ...

Fergie's Gerrard admiration By Alex Livie .. Related links Teams Liverpool Manchester United . Players Steven Gerrard .. Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is ready to take over from Roy Keane as the finest midfielder in The Premiership. The Scottish tactician, who is looking to reshape his squad over the summer, feels Gerrard is probably out of reach in terms of prising him away from Anfield but has made no secret of his admiration for the England international. Ferguson was also quick to praise Arsenal titan Patrick Vieira, but he feels Gerrard does more for the team than the French superstar. "If you were looking for the player you would replace Keane with, it's Gerrard, without question," Ferguson told The Sunday Times. "He has become the most influential player in England, bar none. "Not that Vieira lacks anything, but I think that Gerrard does more for his team than Vieira does. "To me, Gerrard is Keane; he is now where Keane was when Roy came to us in 1994. I' ...
Football Premier League Football Teams Big Sam slams Arsenal IT'S GUN WRONG ... Big Sam slams Arsenal Big Sam: It’s no shock the Gunners are struggling By VIKKI ORVICE Published: 6 hrs ago 23 SAM ALLARDYCE says Arsenal have landed themselves in trouble by flogging off their best players. The West Ham boss takes his team to the Emirates tonight aiming to win away to the Gunners for the first time in his managerial career. He faces a side who have suffered back-to-back losses in the Premier League with defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea. Arsenal — in sixth place — are already 22 points behind table-topping Manchester United. But Allardyce, who has drawn three and lost five of his eight trips to Arsenal as a manager, believes the Gunners cannot be shocked after selling top-scorer Robin Van Persie to United in the summer. Stars like Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri have also gone. And Big Sam said: “It’s not surprising because I don’t know where you go and buy a player of Van Persie’s quality u ...
Ryan Giggs: Manchester United v Arsenal 1999 The goal that Giggs will be associated with for the rest of his life gave Manchester United the edge over their title rivals in a thrilling FA Cup semi-final that would be the last time the competition would ever host a replay at that stage. The first game had ended a dour 0-0, but the replay at Villa Park saw much more action as David Beckham hammered a glorious shot past David Seaman for the opener, before Dennis Bergkamp's shot deflected off Jaap Stam to level the scores. United captain Roy Keane was sent-off for a second yellow card and, in the last minute of normal time, the Gunners were awarded a penalty, although there was even more drama as Bergkamp's effort was saved by Peter Schmeichel. But, despite having their backs against the wall, United would go on take the advantage in extra-time thanks to one man. Picking up the ball inside his own half after a loose pass from Patrick Vieira in the centre of the pitch, Giggs took off on a solo run. Beating Vie ...

Arsene Wenger’s Invincibles took the 2003-04 English Premier League title at a canter, becoming the first team in over a century to go the entire season unbeaten. They ultimately stretched their run just one game short of a half century before going down to a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United. They may have not been able to match their form in the Champions League, as Chelsea knocked them out at the quarter-final stage, but with a spine consisting of Sol Campbell, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and an electrifying Thierry Henry, the Gunners gave the English game some of the greatest football it’s ever seen.
Sir Alex Ferguson was left fuming last night after Nani missed Manchester United’s third successive penalty in their 1-0 Champions League win over Galatasaray. Patrick Vieira says Manchester City’s big spending is over for good. The Premier League champions have spent over £500 million on players since 2008, but Vieira says the club will focus on developing players rather than buying them from now on. Roberto di Matteo admitted he felt ‘deflated’ after seeing Chelsea throw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 in their Champions League opener against Juventus last night. Arsenal have told Andrey Arshavin that he is free to leave the club, according to the Evening Standard. Brendan Rodgers has revealed he won’t be prioritizing the Europa League, instead opting to focus on the Premier League.

Ha ha! "Are you watching Patrick Vieira?! Paul Scholes still scoring goals for Manchester United!" MUTV not biased at all!
Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires - The 'Invincibles' remain the only team to complete an entire Premier League season unbeaten. The achievement was eventually ended in their 50th match - a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. But, without doubt the greatest Premier League side so far.
I wanna see those days of intense rivalry between Arsenal and Manchester United again. You know. Patrick Vieira and Ruud Van Nistelrooy?
Manchester United legend Paddy Crerand says departing youngster Paul Pogba will become a better player than Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
Arsene Wenger's class of 2003-04 has been voted the greatest team of the era as part of the Premier League's celebrations of the last 20 seasons. Arsenal ended that season unbeaten in the top flight as they cruised to the title with an 11-point winning margin. "My target is to get back to that, to get back to that level," said Gunners manager Wenger. They might have been eliminated from the Champions League quarter-finals, but the Gunners managed to go through an entire Premier League campaign undefeated to regain their status as Premier League champions, thus becoming only the second team to do so since Preston North End in 1889. Blackburn's title-winning side of 1994-95 and Manchester United's treble winning team of 1998-99 were also in the running for the award. But the legendary Arsenal side, captained by Patrick Vieira, came out on top.
