The draws for the FA are finally out and guess who are we meeting.The Gunners are going to visit us at Trafford for the fifth round of the FA finals in mid FEB.Well they have been for quite a time United’s worthy opponent and have made almost every encounter into a classic match.
The last time that we faced them in FA finals was back in 2005 at Trafford.Well the results were dissapointing from United’s side but the match worth watching.These are matches which dont set off till they completely finish those given 120 minutes plus the 5 penalties.Its like a never ending conflict.Believe me watching such matches at stadium is worth every penny.
This time it will be sightly more similar but not so exact.No likes of O’Herny or Van Nistelrooy but we surely have Fabregas and Ronaldo.We will still miss those Keano and Viera fights but hey we have Rooney and Eduardo who can.Both teams are right now in their peak time and it has been more fabulous games compared to last season.We usually dont expect high scores but goals will be similar on both ends.
The remaining fixtures tends to be the opposite of these.All Premier ship teams having those lollypop matches.Its also good that the remaining big guns are playing FA which makes us even in times at premier league.
Liverpool and Chelsea both playing their home matches and so they will be least bothered.Pompey is away at Preston while Middlesbrough visiting Sheffield.
