  1. Dave C says:

    Simply prediciting the outcome is borign. Let’s try to predict the actual result as accurately as possible. Personally, I think it Man Utd will win 5-4, with the match unfolding as follows:

    (10th min) John O’Shea will put Man Utd in the lead. He will win a header from a corner kick, the ball will hit the cross bar, bounce down and hit the Arsenal keeper on the back of the head, and then cross the line.

    (18th min) Arsenal will equalize through an Arshevin tap-in.

    (30th min) Arsenal go 2-1 up (RVP Penalty) after Rio Ferdinand gives away a penalty for swearing at the referee in the penalty box.

    (40th minute) Arsenal go 3-1 up. Another Arshevin tap-in after some neat work on the left by Camilla Paker Bowles.

    (45th minute) The referee blows his whistle for some minor infringement against Man Utd. Someone asks him “are you alright?”, to which he replies “I’m fine.” The Man Utd players mis-hear him, and think he says “half-time”, so they begin to walk off the field. As they do so, Fabregas takes the opportunity to take a quick free kick, and Arshevin grabs a sneaky hat-trick while the Man Utd players only just realize their mistake.

    —half-time—

    (46) Unfamiliar with the new locker room decor at Old Trafford, the Arsenal team actually get trapped in the locker rooms. They try to get out onto the field, but find themselves trapped in the showers instead. Then they try another door, only to realize it’s a closet. During the confusion, Man Utd take to the field, kick off and score a goal unopposed to make it 4-3.

    (50) After finally finding their way back on to the pitch, Arsenal resume play. But they lose posession on an attack, allowing John O Shea to burst forward on a counter-attack. He dribbles 70 yards, past past 4 defenders before chipping the keeper to make it 4-4.

    (60) Camilla Parker Bowles’ debut comes to an end as Wenger substitutes her for Walcott. But Walcott forgot to pack his gym shorts, so according to FA rules he has two choices – either play in his underwear or Arsenal have to play the rest of the game with 10 men (they already used their two other subs). He’s wearing an embarrassing pair of old y-fronts that he doesn’t want anyone to see, so he chooses to let his team play with ten men.

    Man Utd dominate posession for the rest of the game, but are unable to make a breakthrough thanks to the fine work of Manual Aluminium, a local sheet-metal-work contractor that Arsene Wenger has signed to replace Manuel Almunia. Thanks to their similar names, he was able to make this sneaky signing outside the transfer window without objection from the authorities.

    Finally in the last minute, O’Shea wins a header from a corner. The header hits the bar and comes back to him. He follows it up with an overhead kick.

    The fans, unable to contain their excitement, run on to the field and offer their civilian clothes to the players, who mingle with the crowd so as to escape their Nazi captors as the final whistle blows.

    There, see if anyone can predict the outcome with better accuracy than that!

    Just as an aside, if I heard right a lot of the U.S. may be snowed in Monday so this game could get big ratings on top of what it already would.

  3. I voted for the draw as the big teams tend to cancel each other out and no one wants to lose
