Exclusive - Quadruple Still on for Arsenal

Exclusive - Quadruple Still on for Arsenal

Against the background of City's miserable result in the frozen wastes of Kyiv last night it was at least pleasing to see Arsenal remain on track for the quadruple.

Having been in pole position for the Carling Cup and their Champions League tie against Barcelona, they have found themselves hit the exit button in both competitions. Two down two to go.

Favourably placed in the FA Cup and Premier League only 2 more surrenders are needed for them to achieve a memorable quadruple.

We all know they won't do the business in Stretford this weekend. Shorn of their achilles heel slicer-in-chief Fabregas they continue to perform as if the goals are on the side of the pitch. The white flag is ready to be unfurled in Trafford Park on Saturday as this team of 'beautiful footballers' will once again lose a match against Stretford Steelers before they step on to the swamp ..because they have got no ticker!

Van Persie seems to have adopted Arsene Wenger's hearing problems. How can he hear a whistle whilst he is concentrating on cheating? Do they not know that men are not good at multi-tasking?

And finally poor beleagured Arsene himself blames a poor referee's decision for his team getting played off the park and not having a shot on target (or at all) in the entire match. Oh..and his team not seeing the ball for probably around 75 minutes.

Yes, dear Gooners it is indeed a harsh life when you play against a quality team with 10 men following an unjust sending-off. But hey..what goes around comes around.

So the Ashburton cabinet will once again resemble the one we have grown to love at Man City. I suspect ours will have something in it before yours. I've told you..the Gods are conspiring for City's trophy drought to end at the hands of Stretford's finest...you heard it first on VMC

Really, you are out of the Europa league after that shambles, as small time as City are, this article focussing on another club after being outclassed by and embarrassed last night, say's it all. You'd never know the club has gone nearly 40 years as a running joke.

Last year I was at a dinner and Terry Christian was sat at my table. As you know he is a Stretford and he and I shouldn't get on, but he said that on his phone-ins one things that lights up the switchboard is having a pop at Arsenal. This article was just another "tester" but once again you run true to form. There's less interest in a tank of piranha!!

Blind, deaf and dumb - Wenger, RVP and Bendtner. Sorry, couldn't resist ;-)

Banter headline! Abit like those St Tottinghams days ones that appear on VA. But wait this isn't Vital Spurs where you'd expect it but at Vital Man City? Didn't realise they were so unpopular elsewhere...

Facts: City lost in the third round of the Carling cup to mighty Wet Brom and did not even qualify for the CL last season. At a stretch one could understand if United fans were baiting us but City, please! This is escapism, after the pasting your lads got last night.

Well, despite all the huff and puff you've won just as much as us in the past 5 years - sweet F.A. (and I don't mean the cup).
