I'll be surprised if any team does it again, including us.

Will, sorry brother. I have yet to see the match (tomorrow night), but I hear there was some questionable officiating and a few less-than-clean plays by both sides. I wish it could all be cleaner - but at least there were no brawls like last season.

Yes, it was fiercely contested, that's to be expected from a match like this. But it didn't get too out of hand like last season, which can only be a good thing. RVN's got himself into a spot of bother lately though it seems. First a deliberate elbow against Sparta Prague in the CL then that ugly, deliberate, possibly career-ending challenge on Ashely Cole - both of which he's expected to face charges for.

I'll be surprised if its beaten or ever got near to be honest........I still think that Nottm Forests run was better though....simply because they won a European Cup in between...

Fair enough, I see what you're saying - ours may have been longer but there wasn't a great deal of cup-winning success involved. Just the Prem.

Aye, but to roll over every team in the EPL is impressive nevertheless.

Shifting gears back to the match, RVN's conduct has not been impressive lately. He's a great play-maker and striker, whose record until now has been reasonably devoid of tarnish. I'm not certain exactly what he hopes to accomplish making brash challenges like he's been doing - they make him and his squad look like brutish thugs. I was never happy at Arsenal last year for taunting him over his errant PK - I thought their behaviour (you like that, Will? I spelled it with a 'u') was tasteless and unsportsman-like. Even so, if RVN was trying to 'take revenge' as it were, it is a behaviour that is equally deplorable, and wholly intolerable.

Arsenal are only kiddie champions until they actually do the business in Europe. On the otherhand, Notts run back in the 70's or whatever was a cakewalk compared to todays euro comps.
