carpet. I know we used to have problems with the surface, but not anymore. Tony Sinclair and his team do a great job, so to blame the pitch for Arsenal’s defeat is farcical.
It could have been a far more comfortable victory had Wayne Rooney tucked home his penalty like he normally does. By the way, if you live in Stretford and find the ball when it eventually returns to earth from orbit, can we please have it back?! Seriously, though, don’t bet against Wayne burying his next spot-kick – let's hope it’s at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
