Boro played really well mate, it took 30 minutes for them to start mind as there was only one team in it at first.

Shame for their fans that they dont give this effort week in and week out, if they did they would be much higher up in the table.

Giggs is terrible now and is in danger of dragging our season down unless he is dropped asap

i dont think that you have won the premiership if you beat arsenal, because if you lose to us (chelsea), we will be level on points, and if we win all our other games we could win it if you slip up in one other game. dont forget you have a habit of losing to west ham!

but we could also slip up so i think its all open atm.

I find your report on Boro DISCUSTING BORO Dirty, Ronaldo diving all over the place again, I thought Giggs Said Ronaldo does not dive, Yes the ReF gave you a draw, Mind you, if thats what you think about football ask Fergie to put your team in the NETTBALL LEAGUE thats a nice NONE CONTACT SPORT ?.
