Manchester United vs Arsenal.

Lamanya aku tak apdate pasal bola.
Aku on - off mood about United.
This is the most inconsistent season for MU.
Double win over great rival like Arsenal and Liverpool.
S*cks against lower team like Norwich ,Crystal Palace and WBA.'s time for a new United Era.
Bring on Rossi , Spector , Johnson and Pique.
They are miles better than Kleberson , Saha , Bellion and Miller.

This Final is going to be tough.

Some conclusion based on both current form:


When they hit form, Arsenal remain the most attractive side in the country to watch. Their free-flowing, one-touch attacking football swept them to the title without defeat last season and they continue to employ the same philosophy. They may not have matched the level of performance which was consistently produced last season but they are still a devastating force.

The problem is that United have learned how to rattle them. Their most recent encounters have been physical, hard-fought affairs with United preventing the Gunners getting into their stride. They are likely to try to stifle them in midfield again and rely on the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy or Wayne Rooney to snatch breakaway goals.

History lesson:

Meetings between these two clubs have become notorious. They fought out an ill-tempered goalless draw at Old Trafford last season and their clash in Manchester this term was equally stormy, reportedly ending in a food fight in the tunnel. United won the last time they met, 4-2 in an absorbing encounter at Highbury in February, and Sir Alex Ferguson's side also came out on top in last year's FA Cup semi-final. In all, they have met 11 times in the FA Cup.

United won a memorable semi-final after a replay in 1999 and also beat them in the last four in 1983, but the last time they met in the final, in 1979, (aku baru umur 4 tahun hehe) it was the Gunners who famously triumphed. On that occasion United fought back from 2-0 down to level in the closing minutes, only for Alan Sunderland to snatch victory.


Both teams have an abundance of talent. Thierry Henry will be looking to shake off his groin injury for Arsenal and they also have veteran Dennis Bergkamp to lead the line, as well as exciting midfielders in Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg. They may not have been as ruthless as in previous seasons, but youngsters Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie have shown the future is bright.

Rooney has been the focus of attention for most of United's season. The 19-year-old has shown on numerous occasions he can rise to the challenge of big games and he will be relishing a cup final appearance at the Millennium Stadium. Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo, both scorers in last year's FA Cup final, will also have their eyes on goals.

Banana skin:

The absence of Sol Campbell for large parts of the season has left Arsenal unusually shaky at the back at times and goalkeeper Jens Lehmann is unreliable. The Gunners will certainly hope that Campbell, their bedrock, is back to full fitness.

United can be vulnerable in defence too, as a surprise defeat at struggling Norwich in April showed. It is up front, however, where they have had more problems of late. Even with with strikers as talented as van Nistelrooy and Rooney - and Louis Saha and Alan Smith in reserve - United have not been scoring enough for Ferguson's liking.

Chelsea may have run away with Arsenal's Premiership crown, but the Gunners are still the country's second best team. United have had the edge in their most recent clashes, and should have the advantage in Cardiff.

Prediction: United 2 Arsenal 1
