Schadenfreude - how come we have never translated this word into an English equivalent, especially in the world of the football fan where it half of what we live for?

If there is anything better than watching your own team win, surely it is watching your rivals lose miserably. The loser of this game will generate a rich harvest of Schadenfreude as the media screams 'Crisis for Wenger' or 'Crisis for Moyes' (though I accept that Moyes has been fighting a crisis all season so it is losing its appeal).

Enough of my wittering, this is the plum tie of the mid-week games. Another absolute cracker in prospect. I can't believe Arsenal can play as poorly twice in a row, especially when they are at home. I can't believe Man United are anywhere near 'gelling' into a team that will seriously trouble a title contender. I backed them to get top four earlier this season, but they really look like they have too much ground to cover in the final third of the season.
Arsenal 2 Man United 1

Special request: can Specnur and Steely please not turn this thread into another sodding debate about Ozil! :roll:

I'm sure that we will see a response from Arsenal and I hope
that they make Man Utd suffer even more for failling to win against the Hammers relegation rivals in last 2 games.

Arsenal 3-1 Man Utd

About 30 mins played and still 0-0.

Rooney is now complaining to ref about his rough treatment.

Arsenal 0-0 Man Utd

Not too many chances in the first half for either side.

Flipping Wilshere absolutely crap! He almost cost us about 4 goals from turning the ball over!
better game form Ozil ,but if that his answer to this weeks criticism ,then i'm not impressed. Definitely something i hope he can guild off of though!
Koscielny proving why he is our best defender today!
Chesney with one of the best saves of the season from the invisible RVP!
I guess a draw is better than a loss ,but i'm sure Man u fans will be happier than Arsenal fans until they try to get home that is! :D
We pretty much dominated in the second half and that as a great thing to see after the Liverpool result.

FT

Arsenal 0-0 Man Utd

The Gunners miss out a chance to go back to the top of the table.

This was a rather lack lustre affair with very chances and a draw was probably a fair result for both teams.

Any comments on this bore draw?

Unbelievable save from Szczesny in what was a very tight game that either team could have won,enjoyable game to watch.

I have to admit I watched the Newcastle - Spurs game, so I'll see the highlights. However, a draw is a much better result for Man United than for Arsenal, what an opportunity missed to go back to the top of the league.

Man United fans will be relieved as they make the long 5 mile journey home, they must have feared a potential thrashing the way they have been playing.
If Arsenal had a bit more fire in their bellies they would have made this a game to wash the memory of the Liverpool thumping out of their minds.
Maybe that is what they could do with now? A fiery Tony Adams type to get them going?

It looks like RVP had the best chance to score in the first minute of the game!

It was a good save by Chesney to deny the Dutch striker in the 2nd half when he was set up by Rooney.

As for Arsenal they didn't really create any clear cut chances and were even booed off at the end by their own fans.

Man of the match Mesut Ozil, a beacon among a fog of mediocrity.

he easily made the most chances and was, once again, the lynchpin of the Arsenal attack - constantly involved in the final third. but for the inefficiency of Giroud once again it would have been a home win. while people will look to the save from Van Persie i though Arsenal had anough about them to win the game but wasteful finishing cost them in the end.

the booing off was very strange though. i really didn't get it as it was clear there was a distinct turnaround from the previous match although it obviously wasnt the most exciting game in the world but you can understand the cautiousness of both sides.

glad to see Wilshere getting singled out above, he was diabolical again.
