Fergie: Gunners can last the course
by Tom Adams, (Setanta Sports) 19 October 2007

Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed suggestions that Arsenal's inexperience means
they cannot challenge for the title, but the Manchester United boss has pledged
that his side will chase The Gunners down with every ounce of effort.

Arsenal have started the season in stunning fashion with seven wins from their
first eight games, and are currently two points ahead of great rivals United
having played a game less.

Whilst only Kolo Toure, Jens Lehmann and Gilberto Silva have tasted Premier
League success in the past, Ferguson feels Wenger's latest crop of players do
have the ability and temperament to last the course.

Whether they will or not is, of course, yet to be seen, and Ferguson is sure his
players will not fail for lack of trying as they look to defend their crown this

"It is still an open race but Arsenal have had a great start and they are the ones
we are chasing at the moment," said Ferguson.

"I know challenging for a title is a new experience for a lot of their players but
some of them have been there before and the manager has, which is a help.

"People said the same thing about us last year but we led the league for three
-quarters of the season, so I don't think it is a handicap.

"The main thing is I know we will chase them with great fervour and

"Our team is coming together now. We are getting on with the business of
winning games and hopefully we can continue to do that now."

United's next game in their bid to rein in Arsenal comes at Aston Villa on Saturday,
a tie that is being shown live on Setanta Sports 1.

Then you didn`t see how Arsenal plays, Liverpool may get a draw with arsenal, I think our match with Arsenal at the Emarates will be the hardest this season, If we got a point there that would count as a win.

But who knows this is football every think may happend.
if your on about the bolton game, i did and they didnt exactly rip bolton to pieces, they was restricted to long range efforts.

i'm not too bothered about the gooners at the moment lets see where they are at xmas
