Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Well I know what you mean, Pete, but I can't agree that Arsenal have been playing great football, not for quite some time now. The problem with them is that they used to, and we all fondly remember it, but these days they are just too gutless and abject. Dammit, there's too much money in it, etc., but the best players get on that pitch and forget that they're getting a hundred thousand and they play with that brilliant schoolboy competitive spirit. I don't think the standard has ever been higher. At its best it's great to watch, and my totally, utterly unbiased view is that Liverpool are the epitome of that perfect combination of on-show skill and entertainment. As ever, Man U fans will deludedly beg to differ...
