February 1st 2005 – Arsenal away

This was probably the last of the really meaty Arsenal game. We’d beaten them 2-0 at home and ended their 49 game unbeaten run. Our away trip to Highbury was supposed to be when they got their revenge.

It didn’t quite work out like that though, with United spanking the Goons, despite going down to ten men with over twenty minutes to play. Ronaldo scored our equalising goal for 2-2 before making it 3-2 four minutes later.
