Old Trafford was extremely lively yesterday, with the competition for loudest fans ending after 20 minutes when United went 2-0 up. At the final whistle, I remarked what a long journey home it was going to be for the Arsenal fans, before looking up and seeing the empty seats, and realising that most of them were on their way back on the M6 already.
Amongst our choice songs for Adebayor and Wenger, we also gave our favourite geordie a rendition of “Cheer up Alan Shearer” as he watched on the with the BBC’s commentary team.
Couldn’t get a ticket? Here’s a view from inside the ground…
2-0 up: “Who the fuck are Man United?”
3-0 up: “Who are ya?”
Following Eboue’s red card: “Cheerio”
Following Adebayor’s shameful dive: “Same old Arsenal, always cheating”
Celebration of the fourth goal
