That can be said of the club for many years, but not in the 2011-12 season. Things were thick for United, with rivals and neighbours Manchester City pipping them to the English Premier League title at the death.
It meant they ended the season trophy-less, a statistic that has been the scourge of rivals Arsenal FC over the last eight odd years.
The gunners though, have had a good off season thus far, with the signings of Santi Cazorla from Malaga, Olivier Giroud from Montpellier and Lukas Podolski from FC Cologne all but confirmed.
Mad about the club, our blogger, who goes under the name Arsenal is great says in his blog that he beleives Arsenal and United will be on par in the new season and that he see's the two clubs sharing many things in common.
Maybe his opinion is mad in itself, or he has a point. Read on and comment, what do you think?
