well, the thing is, he/she is talking how basically man utd would walk all over us, and in the end, they needed a crap call to get them the 3 points. defantly saha shoulda had more, but celtic coulda had 1 or 2 more also. but utd did deserve the win. i think the score board is a fair assesment of the game. well win in scotland. guarenteed

i was actually happy giggs got injured. cuz i was pissed at that nasty dive he did. even though i dont like celtic or care about them. cuz that dive was pretty cheap and well. since he got injured i think he deserved it.. to all man utd fans no offence i know you have a point to defend but its just my opinion. no offence guys. we still friends haha :)

:D I was actually being serious. You can't really argue with any of the points he/she (we still don't know) raised although the way the points were presented weren't exactly the basis for a sensible thread

owens glory your dillusional. watch the part in this video ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=tBDZeFRuenM ) where giggs DIVES. your entitled to your opinion, i know your a smart guy, but i honestly think you have to be an idiot to think thats a penalty, and not a dive.

All players do it and lets face it, they are stupid not too. Van Persie did the same for Arsenal. They get away with it more often than not and considering how often it happens, the number of yellow cards of simulation (cheating) is pretty low.

It's gay and I hate to see it.

FIFA need to sort this out but they are more interested in finding new ways to line their pockets rather than running the game.

Manchester United for the Champions League and Chelsea for the league or the other way around. Liverpool will be fighting till the end but they don't have the depth. Quite frankly Jermaine Pennant isn't really going to fix their wings, Kuyt is slow and Bellamy can't do it all by himself.

Chelsea are also showing weaknesses, Ballack hasn't settled yet, Frank Lampard and John Terry's Bad world cup form continues. Shevechenco is good but not that good by his standards, Drogba is overrated as usual and on top of all that they only have Salomon Kalou should a striker get injured.
B
Arsenal are struggling this season Henry's form is faltering since the champions league final. Fabregas isn't really enough. They pass it around without an end product. They need a world class striker.

Manchester United (yay!) won't a striker should Giuseppe Rossi provide good form on his loan move to Newcastle and if Alan Smith is in good form. However should that not be the case they need a striker in the mould of Van Nistlerooy. Their central midfielder problem should be solved by January as they are still looking to buy Owen Hargreaves which would complete the team.

The games against Watford and Tottenham have been shaky but you people must not forget we were missing several key players.

Nemanja Vidic
Gabriel Heinze
Alan Smith
Wayne Rooney
Paul Scholes

With the exception of Smith, they could have really made a difference and Carrick hasn't settled after his little injury so give them time they will either have League or Champions League glory at their clutches by the end of the season.

Liverpools biggest problem is that Benitez doesn't know his best team and does stupid things like sticking Gerrard on the bench for important Champions League matches

Hargreaves was taken off with a suspected broken leg today so depending how bad the injury is, he may not be playing in January

When Robben, Drogba, Joe Cole dives, I never see any Chelsea fans saying it is wrong or wad.When Gerrard, Bellamy dives, I do not see any Liverpool fans saying anything.When Pires (a few seasons ago), Henry, Eboue, or Van Persie diving, I never notice any Arsenal fans speaking bad about them.On the other hand, the oppositions fans, and I admit, that u will be biased towards the rivals and not your team. Be a man, admit it. If u cannot, then continue complain and complain. How many times u see Giggs diving ??? If u have a chance to earn an important freekick or penalty that can save your team, will u dive ?????????

no, its engraved in my head to stay on my feet, in any sport i play wheter its gaelic football, hockey, or soccer, i stay on my feet. and im not complaining about diving in general on this particular post, but people who say that giggs did not dive are obviously away with the birds. im not picking on him either, because hes a player who would rarely do it. but he dived, and that is cheating, and he basically gave united a goal by cheating.
