    First half was a decent contest, United were shite second-half the ref was awful as were Van Den Gaal's subs, this guy is looking almost as bad as Moyes. BBC football coverage is so dull and biased, Danny Murphy must be the worst co-comm ever and that is saying something.

    At last a ref who has the balls to book players for diving at Old Trafford.

    The only real surprise is how Fellani doesn't get sent off in every game. He committed at least five bookable offences before he was booked, and three more afterwards.

    Forget the stats, Arsenal clearly deserved to win - for once Wenger got his tactics spot on for 20 minutes after half time and their full court press resulted in a goal from an error, which in my book, was "forced" by pressure.

    I really don't mind who wins the cup now, although I do have a favourite, obviously ! Wink

    Bit of inside knowledge on view tonight. The winning goal came from Welbeck knowing how useless Jones and Valencia are when put under the slightest pressure, and taking full advantage.

    Good to see his time at OT wasn't entirely wasted.

    I don't agree with the first point, United have for a long time got a worse deal from refs than other big clubs, all the stats back that up.

    Arsenal deserved to win, first-half was decent and even, second-half was it more Van den Gaal got it wrong again slowing down the pace, when really it needed upping 10% and Arsenal were there to be beaten.

    Hope Arsenal win the Cup and I expect they will, always liked Wenger. Sad to hear Welbeck getting booed, totally undeserved and United fans used to be so much better than that, that Glazer takeover has slowly killed their support, in comparison to what it was.

    Far too many ex Liverpool players as pundits co-comms etc, some like Carragher or McManamon add value, Murphy certainly doesn't, it would be nice to get some commentary bias free but beyond the BBC. Total bias tonight both sides had players clearly diving tonight but according to Murphy one side ok but not the other.

    BBC football coverage gets worse and worse tonight Lineker, Shearer, Keown, Neville and worst of all Murphy such a shame as it used to be so good. Nobody of that charisma or ability would have got a sniff of a mic years ago, what went wrong.

    Got to agree with Angus - Man Utd never get any decisions, history shows that they never get decisions at Old Trafford and Fergie never influenced referees in their favour. I remember the match at Pride Park where the poor Man Utd players had to shout vociferously in a referees face before Stefan Schnoor was sent off. Totally not on. Liverpool rarely get a decision in front of the kop either. Someone should sort out some sort of compensation for these 2 clubs - the poor sods.

    I remember that match. Gary Neville had to sprint 50 yards to help the ref make the correct decision.

    People raving about the ref's performance in the Manure / Arsenal game seem unaware that he is to appear before an FA committee to explain how on earth he managed to get all his decisions right, as it is unacceptable practice. Punishments could include demotion to lower league matches, but a more constructive approach would involve him being sent to a succession of Derby County games to see how to do the job properly.
