I think it`s fair to say that for most Gooners of this generation the 8-2 defeat at Old Trafford earlier this season was amongst the top ten low points of the last 25 years.

Despite a number of key injuries the sheer size of the loss was enough to sink lots of fans into a deep footballing depression. However following the loss we picked ourselves up and dusted messy crap away from our red and white clothing to drag the team up to a more respectable postion.

There are three certainties in life, death, taxes and home and away games in the Premier League, and today is the day we get to attempt to rectify that result.

Of course we don`t need to embarss United the way they embarrassed us, a simple 3 points would suffice.
