I think we can really win this game. However, Liverpool are on the up so we need to stay focused. Luckily Parlour is playing, but unfortunatly Ljungberg isn't. Hopefully Gio is coming into a period of good form and maybe score a goal for us. I say 2-1 to Arsenal.

i think liverpool will give a very tough fight
both of the teams coming from a mid week game
it will be hard
i don't think there'll be much really "big" suspense or action
but tough indeed
arsenal wins 1-0
from a beautiful goal by henry, pass from bergkamp.
i think someone would get sent off
and also we'll see how sht owen is
a player who did not deserve that euro player of the year award, just for some scrappy goals
:D

Catching the match live, i hope to see a win. 2-1 to the Gunners, Henry scoring the winner from a Pires' pass. :star:

I think both teams will be even more up for the game now when ManU are out. It can be a real battle and as you know we are a stronger than Liverpool so wewill win by 3 goals :eek: . henry will score a hattrick :devil: .
In our last 2 games against Liverpool we have scored 2 goals because Pires has beaten Carragher on the left wing. We should try to give Pires the ball as often as possible so he comes one to one against him, it always become dangeros when Pires is left wing and Carrgher at the right back.

It's a shame Liverpool sold Fowler to Leeds. He always scores against the Gooners.

Here's hoping Mr Owen will tear your shaky defense apart :D :D

Arsenal 1 Liverpool 2

Final: Arsenal 1 - 0 Liverpool!!!
Yes!! Revenge!!! Bergkamp scored the winner in the first half, and there were three sending offs, Keown Bergkamp and Carragher in the space of three minutes. It now seems that we're the best team in the FA Cup, with manchester out also!!! I didn't see the match, so could someone give match ratings?

What a great performence by the red and white heros ! We are the best team in England right now no doubt about it. It was shown that Liverpool is still is far away from us, Even if I have to admit that I was a little bit worried that Liverpool would turn the game around when Carragher was sent off ;)
ratings: Wright 7
Luzney 7
Keown 7
Campbell 7
Cole 8
Pires 7
Vieira 7 ½
Van Brockhorst 8
Wiltord 6
Bergamp 7 ½
Henry 8
Parlour 7
Upson 7
Grimandi 7

Prophet SwiftWilly :D :D

you was nearly right anyway goal from Bergkamp,pass from Henry ;)
oh and three got sent off

Bergkamp was terrible challenge :(
Keown should have got yellow Wright had that ball covered :confused:
Carragher should be nicked and charged a woman got struck in the face by his stupidity :depress:
The people throwing coins should be banned from THOF for life and charged they could have blinded Carragher :depress:


1-0 TO THE ARSENAL !!!!!!!!!!!!

great to sing that for the first time this season :D :D :D
We were magnificent once we got going without Bob,Fred,Kanu,Lauren,Dicko,Seaman and TA6 ;)


What spirit we showed when we had nine men Henry was class,GvB had his best game yet,DB10 was like the DB10 of 97,Ash was fan'bloody'tastic,Keown and Campbell were like big blocks of concrete ,Wrighty pulled off a great save when it was 0-0 and looks much improved ;)


Anyway got an easy looking tie Home to Bristol/Gillingham so it looks like we will progress to the quarter finals :D :D

Come on you Reds !!!!!!!

I couldn't watch the match myself but I followed it one the net and from what I read we kicked butt :)
We are probably favourites now to take the F.A Cup and with the extra bonus of Man Utd being taken out it only makes things easier.
Does anybody have any idea how bad Pires' inujury is?

Nice going, Swiftwilly! ;)

Rough game, with those three sending offs. Harsh injuries to both Pires and Henry by Hyppia. :mad: Pires had an injury to the hip, i saw, and Henry suffered a severe cut to the lip. He still managed to put up a great performance. :star: But overall, good game despite 9 men down in a matter of minutes. Bronkhorst had a good game and Cole, amazing play. :star: Go Gunners! :strong:

Well, I didn't watch that match because it wasn't broadcasted in my local TV. But, I am happy that finally Arsenal can get through to the next stage of English FA Cup. I read the news from Arsenal.com, and I surprised that my idol Dennis Bergkamp become the hero in that match. But, it's also saddened me after I found that he was sent off after he obstructed Carragher... :(

Off-Topic

I hope you all in this Arsenal board can understand Dennis Bergkamp situation, it was a very harsh match. Honestly, as a fan of him, I also feel a little bit very dissapointed about it. But, I still trust him and I will still like him, because he's a very special player. Will you guys forgive him ?

I don't mind if there's some of you that hate him because of his embarassing action. We all know that he is just a human who can do mistake just like us. I post this thing because I more than often heard people keep criticizing DB10 because "he is old", "he can't score anymore", "he isn't better than any AFC strikers", etc. Well, he has done many good things for Arsenal, including the only goal in this match.

So please forgive Dennis Bergkamp for me. I beg you all.... :depress:

:cool: :cool: calm down Zhunge Dennis Bergkamp is the best player i've ever seen in an Arsenal shirt and many old skool gooners who have seen all the old players say the same it was a bad tackle but seeing it again i think it was more petulant than nasty as he wouldn't have missed his ankle if he didn't want to ;)
Dennis would have to murder someone to make me dislike him,he's getting old now but still shows us flashes of genius from time to time ;)
He will always be an Arsenal legend there is no doubt about it :)
