the leg flick for the penalty against portsmouth.... invincible cheats.

can't believe neville g and keano using the "invincibles" tag, too. as if they didn't lose a game that season. we should still have won the league.

Yes! Felt like every time I watched Arsenal he would dive. All these years later and itís the norm.

Still maintain Giggs was better than him too.

I don't think that this is a contentious view. it would be laughable to suggest otherwise.

still won't forgive him tripping irwin (or two cole goals being ruled out for non-existent offsides), but still.....

He was a fantastic player but also overrated.

Because of the United hatred bias and him being French heís seen as a better player than Keane, which of course he wasnít.

I don't think he was overrated exactly. Just that his rivalry with Keane as a head to head is made out to be like it was 50-50 between the two and whoever won on the day would lead their team to victory. When in fact Keane won the majority of those midfield battles and even when Arsenal won a few of the matches it wasn't really Vieria who I felt was MOTM. I never felt Bergkamp troubled United much either compared to a player like Ljunberg but obviously Bergkamp was a world class player.

He didn't. Often invisible at Old Trafford too.

Of all of the people they've ripped the piss out of, could neither of them, just once say "but you lost more games than the Treble winning United team, didn't you?".

Then "why do you think you didn't win the champions league?" - cos they weren't good enough and loved to bottle it?

I've watched a couple episodes of the overlap (loved the Wazza one) but I find a lot of them just meh. Obviously can't stand listening to the scouse #@&%!, like Ian Wright though.

When Carragher isn't there it's alright. I just can't take him seriously talking about what it takes to win the league when he has absolutely no idea

Carragher talking about coming on as sub and deciding to stick one on him. This is how it went
