*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 ...
THE GINGER NINJA TURNED PUNDIT!! Manchester United’s performance may have been disastrous on the pitch during their derby humiliation at the hands of Manchester City – but at least one ex player put in a star turn on Tuesday night. Paul Scholes, who retired last summer along with Sir Alex Ferguson, was a surprise choice of Sky Sports pundit for the match at Old Trafford last night as the notoriously shy former midfielder made the rarest of appearances in front of the TV cameras. Scholes was famous for being camera shy during his playing career, rarely giving interviews and, when he did, looking extremely uncomfortable in the media glare as he kept his opinions to himself and made minimal noise. However, following in the footsteps of former team- mate Gary Neville – now regarded as the best football pundit going – Scholes made a big impression on Sky as he let loose on the failings of his former club, and old rivals Arsenal. Scholes limbered up with a precise dissection of the problems affecting Da ...
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 ...

REVEALED: THE THREE SUPERSTARS FERGIE TRIED TO SIGN FOR Man Utd Submitted by tribalfootball.com on Mon, 10/28/2013 - 09:27 1 Share on email Share on print Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson missed out on three amazing signings during his time in charge. The Daily Star Sunday reports Fergie had a deal wrapped up for Paolo Di Canio after United won the Champions League in 1999. The Italian had accepted the offer before then coming back to tell Old Trafford chiefs he wanted more money, which they declined. Ferguson also agreed a deal to bring Ronaldinho to Old Trafford too. The legendary boss was keen to get in talismanic players like the Brazilian and he was ready to spend £19m to snap him up. The transfer was being funded by the sale of David Beckham but, like the Di Canio deal, it fell through at the last minute. Ferguson asked chief executive Peter Kenyon to ring Arsenal to enquire about the availability of Patrick Vieira in the 90s. Kenyon informed Fergie he had but a day later the Scot me ...

Manchester United 0-0 ARSENAL - 21 AUGUST In 2002, Arsenal clinched the Premiership title with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, last term they surrendered the match 2-0, and eventually their title. This season, Old Trafford was once again a battlefield and though the teams fought a stalemate, Arsenal delivered a telling blow. Not least to Ruud Van Nistelrooy - both physically and mentally - after the Dutchman missed an injury-time penalty. Martin Keown taunts Ruud Van Nistelrooy Van Nistelrooy had earlier clashed with Patrick Vieira and the Gunners skipper was sent off for his second booking, which incensed his team-mates. And when the United striker smashed his spot-kick against the bar, the beautiful game turned ugly. On the final whistle, Van Nistelrooy was buffeted by a number of Arsenal players. Arsenal players banned Lauren, Martin Keown, Ashley Cole and Ray Parlour were all later fined and suspended after pleading guilty to improper conduct. Their actions can not be condoned, but the episode demonstrated ...

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.
World Cup-winner Patrick Vieira will be a proud man when players from Senegal play against Team GB at Old Trafford
Giggs could play for 50 seasons and would never reach the higher notes in Cantona's repertoire, while Henry was a supreme athlete and an instinctive natural finisher but nobody can really argue that he's had the weight of influence at Arsenal that Cantona did at United. Arsenal won two titles in Henry's eight seasons; United won four in Cantona's five and the one that got away owed much to his self-enforced absence. Yes, Henry has a statue at the Emirates, but Cantona is a religion at Old Trafford. Shearer was a rampaging force of nature, but while he was perpetually sprinting off to the crowd with one arm in the air celebrating, Cantona was forging an empire. And though Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane have both earned their place in the pantheon of Premier League greats, Cantona's legacy will live on long after they resume their hostilities in the great football match in the sky.
