Don't care they aren't rivals anyways. Lower tier football clubs. bite bite!
Yep. An Arsenal win is probably the best result for United but it would be absolutely glorious watching them get hammered.
In any big game they play in, no matter what the scenario, the desired result is always Arsenal to get hammered.
I'll side with logic. I have new teams that have my undying hate. Arsenal just aren't threatening anymore
See this just happens so frequently now that it’s lost all effect. I mean Swansea battered them just last week. It’s hard to get excited about Arsenal getting hammered now when it’s so normal.
I want Arsenal to win because it puts further daylight between us and Spurs assuming we hold up our side of the bargain vs Newcastle.
I’d quite like to see us pull away in 2nd and watch a 4 way dogfight for 3rd and 4th between Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal.
So long as we’re not involved, the more teams involved in that scrap the better and I think an Arsenal win provides the best chance of that.
Not too arsed about Mkhitaryan. Seen enough of him to know he’ll never be a world beater or mentally strong enough to make them serious contenders for anything. If he has a few games where he sparkles for them, so be it.
Correct. Worst scenario is Spurs win. Arsenal win is best but a draw is equally good.
I agree with you. Logically Arsenal winning is the best result. I've often watched games involving Arsenal and other big teams, initially wanting Arsenal to win. But 10 minutes in, I want them to get stuffed and every time it happens it is fantastic.
Maybe when Wenger leaves the club my opinion of them will change. I really like Ozil, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan as players but I just cannot stand Arsenal. The way they behaved in that rivalry with United was disgraceful and absolutely delusional.
Their fans ridiculously crowing when they stuff some no mark at home makes the crushing defeats even more satisfying.
Longer term, post Wenger, you really have to expect that Arsenal will be a threat to the top teams again. They have 3 attackers that cost £150m between them and have spent big money on Xhaka in midfield and Mustafi in defence. They have money to compete with the big clubs. With Spurs you feel so much is dependent on Pochettino and their current "golden generation". Arsenal are a top class manager away from being extremely competitive.
Arsenal win and Kane sending off.
I want Arsenal to win for three reasons.
1. The logical choice since they aren't really competing directly with us.
2. Would pull Spurs down a notch after they have had two very good performance against their top 4 rivals.
3. Arsenal are mildly more tolerable than Spurs at the moment. The amount of wanking over them has been nauseating.
In term of result, Arsenal
In term of pure entertainment, Spurs
I choose Spurs for this game. Need a good laugh this week.
I want Arsenal to win. The bigger the gap with Spurs, the better off we are.
Feck them both. Is that an option? Feck City too while we're at it.
Same can't be said of their fanbase. The revisionism over Sanchez and Mkhi, ffs.
Still, agree that an Arsenal win is the best result.
Surprised at how many want mihki to fail. Thought he was well liked.
I remember united fans calling us all sorts when rvp joined yous since some of us wished him to fail.
What do you know? Hypocrites everywhere
Draw brings in two points. The best result for us in any rival game. Arsenal anyway have another route to CL this season and I think they now have the strongest squad for both the league and CL in the teams below us .
That's the nature of most football fans. However the media love in for Spurs was bordering on ridiculous.
Objectively Arsenal winning would be better for us but I'm kinda hoping for Liverpool to drop out of the top 4 and that would need a Spurs win and Chelsea to recover their shit.
I’m the same. Have given up fighting it at this stage. The only time I can root for Arsenal, from start to finish, is when they play Liverpool or City.
Agree. And sometimes not even then.
Saying that, after the OT tunnel incident, confetti in the dressing room and the "park the bus" nonsense, this City team is well on its way to taking over the mantle from Arsenal.
I always say this but surely a draw and subsequently a two point gain on us has to be preferable to one of them winning and a three point gain ?
Maybe slightly different thinking if they were right on our tail and we were in the last throws of the season but right now both could conceivably catch us with plenty of points still at stake so a share of the points makes the most sense.
Arsenal win and Spurs responding in their usual way and getting fouly - Alli red card
Wanting someone to fail/not perform well and calling someone every name under the sun are two very different things. No one's calling Micki a mercenary just following the money, we just don't want him to perform well as he's going to a "rival". To be honest that's mainly been caused by this idea that this new Arsenal team are better than ever, people just want this team to all fall apart (as it always does) so that the faces of miserable Arsenal fans can be plastered around the internet as per usual.
Arsenal/draw, we’re in a good position already though. A Spurs win wouldn’t cause us too much trouble.
Arsenal win would be nice. If that happens and we beat Newcastle that should be top 4 pretty much there
A bit idiotic and cheap to compare the 2 situations. Arsenal displayed amazing levels of bitterness and hatred towards RVP with all those chants. This is nothing alike.
Arsenal get battered so often; but they still somehow are delusional enough to think they are a top team after they smash a mid-table team at home.
There were many Arsenal fans that said that 'Sanchez' best years are behind him so I'm glad we got rid', completely forgetting that Mkhitaryan is the same age. Many Arsenal fans also convinced themselves that Mkhitaryan would make them a better team going forward; despite the fact that Sanchez has been one of the most productive forwards in the world for the past 3-4 years.
When a team gets their best player picked; they are usually very rational about it. Because it humbles them; and let's them know what their standing is in the game. Arsenal fans get extremely bitter and cover their eyes and ears to anything logical.
I actually quite like Arsenal. *hides*
Arsenal win, of course.
It was one game against a mediocre Everton. Look at Arsenals form.
Surprised so many people want an Arsenal win. Spurs losing helps Chelsea way too much, even a draw does. From a long term perspective Chelsea finishing outside the Top 4 is the best result for our club IMO.
Spurs all day! Why would any Utd fans want those deluded loud mouths to win?
A draw would suit me. Both teams dropping points and hopefully lots of red cards.
Because it helps us more? Not like they are a local rival.
Draw with a couple of red cards would be handy.
A draw. Failing from that, a Spurs win.
The closer the kick off and the more my natural hatred for Arsenal fans (and not the club) is taking over... I see Arsenal fans as the biggest babies around.
A draw would be acceptable to all i think, us and even them also.
Arsenal win, good for us points wise but they are just an unbearable bunch.
Tottenham win, they keep up the chase and also would have got really good results against 3 rivals back to back maybe giving them more momentum. The arse meltdown would be fantastic but short-lived and soon forgotten.
So all in all I pick draw.
Arsenal win.Arsenal are 12 points behind us(including GD),they have got absolutely no chance of catching us....A Spurs defeat will probably mean that we go 10 points clear of the team placed 5th.That would probably seal top 4 for us,so I want Arsenal to get the 3 points today....
