    Well the scene is set for Arsenal v Thierry He...I mean Barcelona in the CL final.

    I might buy a 360 next week, my brothers got the dreaded 3 red lights so if I do get one and it does that I'm gonna personally launch it through the bathroom window of Bill Gates' house.

    Bigg I got the dreaded 3 red lights.. Pissed me off so bad. I finally got around to sending it back. I just called some number and registered it and they sent me a box to ship it with. It went pretty well. I got it back in i think 3 weeks. And of course, it cost me nothing

    I heard that they have improved on the newer 360s, new heatsink or something like that~ It's a pity that the 360 has this problem, because imo it has the best selection of games and best online capability/community.

    Skizz, I'm honestly not trying to antagonize or instigate here but I'm curious...

    Given recent results and upcoming fixtures, do you think Arsenal have a better shot of progressing in Europe or hanging on to with the league? I'm honestly not sure what's going to happen. All I know is that I'm terrified the Gooners and United are going to slip up and gift Chelsea the EPL title.

    Arsenal's upcoming fixtures:

    Chelsea (A)
    Bolton (A)
    Liverpool (H) - CL
    Liverpool (H)
    Liverpool (A) - CL
    Manchester United (A)

    I don't envy Arsenal at this point, especially with that second leg at Anfield.

    How healthy is RvP?

    If it goes to Chelsea i'll cry!

    The title race this season has been fantastic. But as a United fan im not about to get cocky. Yes, we have a game in hand but we have to win that first before assuming we will. We all know how close we were yesterday just to getting a point against Derby!! So shows even the fixtures you think you can bag 3 points out of isn't always text book!

    I think we're a bit shit at the moment due to a combination of bad luck and the players thinking they have a divine right to win games. Let's be honest, you look at Birmingham (A), Villa (H), Wigan (A) and Middlesbrough (H) you're looking for at least 9 points. Villa are on good form and a point was all we deserved (should have lost really) but aside from that the team blatantly thought we deserved to win all those games and we've gone behind in three out of those four.

    I think we're really struggling. You lot are getting results even when you're playing poorly (yesterday being the prime example) and while we aren't losing games we aren't picking up the points we need. We are basically going to have to win all our remaining games and hope you drop points, and looking at your fixture list most of the games where you play teams that can test you, you are at home so that makes you dropping points less likely. Whatever happens though I think one of us will win the title, I can't see Chelsea beating us AND you even if it is at Stamford Bridge, and besides we should have beaten them there last year and for you lot it was a nothing game last season so they didnt see the true United. I think one of us will take three points there at least and whoever does will win the title now. I just worry we have slipped up at the wrong time.

    With regards to Europe I'm happy the second leg is away. That means even if we draw at home, if the game goes to extra time we have 2 hours to get the away goals we need. Considering the fact we are a largely attacking team this bodes well for us and while Liverpool's fans are their 12th man when we went up there earlier in the year they shut up for the whole game because we totally outplayed them. I'm not one for making predictions but the draw could have come out a LOT worse for us.

    RvP is fit but useless at the moment, he's rusty and he was pretty poor yesterday, didn't get in his usual positions etc. It is exactly like having a new signing - he's an excellent player but he needs time to integrate back into the team. Cesc seems like he only really bothers in European games at the moment, Ade has gone off the boil (and should NEVER have cut his hair), Hleb has the touch of a rapist and Flamini is the only person who really, really seems bothered. Theo is playing well but doesn't get much help from the rest of the team and when you add all this up, we have a LOT of problems. I think you'll win it now IMO. :(

    united and arsenal have fairly similar schedules from here on out, and yeah its pretty scary seeing chelsea only 3 points off arsenal with a game in hand.

    United fixtures (PL)
    -Bolton (H)=3 points
    -L'pool (H)=probably can say at least 1 pt
    -Villa (H)=who knows? likely 3 points
    -Boro (H)=3 points
    -Arsenal (H)=who knows
    -B'burn (A)=you never know...
    -Chelsea (A)=im guessing 1 pt apiece
    -W. Ham (H)=3 points
    -Wigan (A)=JJB, still probably 3 points though

    Arsenal fixtures (PL)(i know shrapnac already posted, just so you can look at both)
    -Chelsea (A)=at least 1 pt
    -Bolton (A)=3 points
    -L'pool (H)=3 points:p
    -United (A)=we'll see
    -Reading (H)=3 points (hopefully)
    -Derby (A)=3 points...right?
    -Everton (H)=tricky, home but against a good side
    -Sunderland (A)=3 points

    ^assuming both teams are on their "usual" form

    i'm a huge liverpool fan, no doubts. but my two best friends avidly follow arsenal, as i do with the pool, so i've grown to enjoy arsenal and their style of play very much, and love to see them win as much as everyone else that supports them, but just not over l'pool.

    So therefore in reality, you are a Liverpool fan who admires Arsenal's football. That's what you ask yourself, if you don't want a team to beat another, you're not a fan of them, you're a fan of the other team.

    I decided to turn Case into a Southpark Character. I think the likeness is pretty damn good myself :

    First sentence, exactly correct.
    In a l'pool-arsenal match, I'm always rooting for the pool. but in every other arsenal match, I like to see them win.
