The shit is hitting the fan down there in north London because the Gunners have not won any silverware since 2005 when they claimed the FA Cup. Sir Alex Ferguson insists he would never have allowed Manchester United to go six years without a trophy as he prepares to face Arsenal this afternoon. But they should try being a Toon supporter - we haven't won domestic silverware since 1955 - 56 years ago! OK we won the Inter Cities Fairs Cup in 1969 but we tend to keep it to ourselves, because the competition doesn't exist anymore. On the prospect of going six years without winning anything, Ferguson said: "I wouldn't have allowed that to happen. "You know, I don't contemplate these things. "Arsene has got his way and I've got my way and, you do the best with what you believe in. And that's what Arsene is trying to do. It is a different way of management."
