Yes, the score was 8 - 2!

Arsenal were desperate and Arsene is in denial. The defence and midfield deficiencies have been obvious all year and they lack discipline.
Sir Alex Ferguson on the other hand has built and renewed teams consistantly. Sold players "before their time" and been criticised. But look at his achievements.
People who criticise the Champions League performance of last year - but 3 finals in 4 years I think proves he's the best and just come up against and exceptional Barcelona team.
But he's weighed up the situation, got in the market early, kept Welbeck, signed Jones and Young who have been phenomenal and given Cleverly and Anderson their heads. They are playing the best football that I have ever seen a United team play under Ferguson.
Wenger inherited the base of a crack team. Seaman, the Back Four, Ian Wright, Bergkamp, Parlour - the real gems he added were Henry and Vierra. His successes in the first half of his reign were significantly down to the squad he inherited.
Strange with the success he had, based on home based solid professionals, which he added to with the likes of Campbell seems to have been forgotten.
His current crop have looked too lightweight for several years. No solidity in defense, no leadership.
This underlines to me how over rated he is as a manager. If I were an Arsenal supporter, I would be pleased to let him go and would look to David Moyes - he is a great manager in the making. He deserves a chance to be with a big club.
Arsenal fans need to get behind the club and demand that the board move on from a pay policy that was relevent when Arsenal were at Highbury and it's 38,000 capacity, and adjust the clubs pay to profit scale,
