Typical Arsenal


MURDOCH_(8)

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else sick to death with Arsenal complaining about anything and everything when a match doesn't go their way? Arsene Wenger's comments after the match were just typical of the man, nothing to do with another average performance and his teams failure to take their chances. Sure they have a massive reason to be upset, the injury to Eduardo was disgusting but it was clear to anyone that the player didn't mean to hurt Eduardo and he was genuinely upset about what he had done to the boy but is one mistimed tackle really deserving of a life time ban? It just shows the true charactor of the man that because Eduardo's career is in threat of being over then Taylor's career should also be finished. He was obviously then told how his comments would be perceived and was told to retract his statement but what I heard on MOTD didn't sound like a retraction or an apology. He then went on to complain about the referee. Fair enough the referee didn't have the best of games but according to Mr Wenger Birmingham's first and second goals shouldn't have been given and Arsenal should have had a penalty. All of these incidents are arguable but it just reeks of Wenger who would blame the tealady before he rounded on his 'young guns'. To be perfectly honest I'm sick of hearing about anything remotely related to Arsenal, in my house phrases like, "Your an arse" and "My arse is itchy" (both said alot in my household unfortunetly icon_lol.gif ) have been replaced with, "your an anus" or "My bottom has an itch" or else I erupt. My best mate is a 'GOONer' and I've had the, "Wait till next year when we've matured" excuse for what seems like a lifetime. The team, manager and fans all reek of arrogance. The whole William Gallas captaincy situation annoys me further, the fact that he quite clearly isn't captain material but yet not one of their fans will see past their blind loyalty for the idiot. The Nani situation last week was disgusting I thought, the kid was accused of showboating even though all he did was keep control of the ball and for that he was kicked off the park, another examples of the worst losers in the premiership. Terrible winners and terrible losers. Theres dozens of examples of this but the one that sticks in my mind was when I think it was last year or the year before Blackburn held them to a draw (or won, I'm not entirely sure) and Fabregas made a snidey cheap remark about Mark Hughes playing for Barcelona, I don't really know what his point was, did he genuinely expect Blackburn Rovers to play like Barcelona? 300.gif Anyway I'm utterly sick of the whole club and something had to be said before I exploded 429.gif

Agree 100% with you . But Wenger was always a bad loser and he's a man i detest .

Arsenal are also media darlings and the praise heaped upon them because of their style of play irritates the f**k out of me. There good if allowed play, but in a dog fight there a bunch of cowards and complain every time a team gets physical. Maybe we should change the rules to suit Wenger , yeah, thats it , lets all bounce to Wengers tune . He makes Alex Fergusion almost bearable. s for the tackle , yes it was a bad one , the injury i wouldnt wish on any player apart from Gerrard but because its one of Wengers players i have little sympathy .

brian, gallas made a complete arse of himself. when the pen was given, he stomped about like a 4 year old made to eat brocolli. he then wandered up the pitch moaning and was actually in birminghams half when the pen was taken. he then booted a hoarding and wanted to fight brum fans. what a fantastic captain. a shining example of profesionalism. i wound a gooner right up after the match, said gallas never did that at chelsea.

Gallas does indeed seem to be a completely different person recently to the one we had at Chelsea. Makes me wonder whether he actually made that own goal threat or not!

To be fair though, going to the other side of the pitch was probably a good thing, he seemed really angry so he's best off out the way.

Not just you. This (nob of a)columnist in the Daily Mail had the same idea:

Gallas is now a weak link. He is the defender every side will attempt to exploit, because they see how easily he cracks under pressure. It also paints Chelsea's character assassination when he left the club in acrimonious circumstances in a somewhat different light too.

The Stamford Bridge publicity machine was roundly slaughtered for leaking that the defender had threatened to score an own goal if he wasn't allowed to leave west London.

It sounded preposterous at the time; not that Gallas had said it, but that Chelsea took this alleged 'blackmail' seriously. Looking at the way Gallas is behaving at the moment, perhaps they were right to wonder.

While browsing that abysmal set of football stories, I came across this beauty about Aliadiere and Mascherano exchanging facial grabs/ slaps:

It is understood referee Mason saw the full incident, but decided not to penalise Mascherano for his contribution.

File this one along with the 'no action against Gallas for kicking and headbutting as it wasn't violent' business.
