When Roy Keane tried to dig up Patrick Vieira's nemesis in the tunnel before the Manchester United vs Arsenal match, the tension was always higher than ever.

However, the competition was intense that rejoiced football fans for most of the 90s and early thought before Keane Vieira and Arsene Wenger vs Sir Alex Ferguson.
In fact, it was before the Premier League, starting in January 1987, according to Fergie – nine years before Wenger arrived in northern London.
“There was great competition when George Graham was there and I just came down,” he told The Times in 2009.
“Arsenal ran a 22-game non-stop and then we broke them at Old Trafford and it was one of those games when Norman was great. [Whiteside] it made about 45 people and was never booked. How he went out with him I'll never see, ”he said.
Graham has never forgotten his first exchange with his companion.
“Norman Whiteside was kicking David Leary all over the place,” he told the Guardian.
“David Rocastle was encouraged as much as it was put out and there was a big series coming from the park. Alex Ferguson and his assistant Archie Knox were right in our faces and I thought: osa Jesus Christ! That is the first time and last time they intimidate us. We won't bully any more ’.”
A year later, Arsenal met United in an FA championship and Nigel Winterburn went to Brian McClair for a penalty.
The incident then impacted on 21 men in 1990, leaving both clubs out of Arsenal and one for United.
“Perhaps it means that we won the truth itself,” Perry Groves said, which was part of this Arsenal squad, with jokSPORT.
“After the game, George told us that it was just as it was – players watch out for each other. He said: ‘That is what I am saying here, but in the press I must say that I do not consent and it is not what you would expect to behave '. I think a couple of boys got a fine on a week's pay! ”
Add a few years to the Wenger era, starting in 1996 and Arsenal, League Champions in 1989 and 1991, began to challenge the United Nations early leadership in the Premier League.
