Wenger's Hypocrisy Is Breathtaking

Wenger's Hypocrisy Is Breathtaking

I can understand Arsene Wenger's position. After seeing that Adebayor was allowed bundle the ball into the net with his arm, he must have thought that for his side, handballs are legitimate and may be used.

'We lose on a penalty we cannot believe but we are used to it now. And on the free kick, he did not touch him. They are two big decisions and we have to take it.'

Arsene, of course, saw both incidents this time: he's not bothered by the fact that it was an obvious and deliberate handball by Gallas nor that Evra was clearly stopped by unlawful means.

And we should not expect him to moan about the fact that the purity and integrity of the game was severely damaged by the fact that Adebayor was allowed to use his hand to score. It was not a big decision it seems, as I said, he seems to expect favourable treatment from referees just because the media view them as the best thing since Brazil 1970.

Will he come out and condemn Adebayor for hacking down Anderson from behind with two feet as a retaliation for a fair tackle, without any intention to get the ball? No, I don't think so. Will he acknowledge that it should have been a red card? No, he won't.

Fergie was charged for criticising Martin Atkinson after the Pompey game but he did not debate the decision to give the visitors a penalty though it was no more blatant than this one. Will Wenger be charged for once again questioning the officials? No, I think he'll get away with it again.

The dude is hurt and has been bitten so many times that he is a little frustrated. I am an Arsenal fan and believe that the calls were fair. Ade was our problem today and not the refs! Congrats, a draw most probably would have been a fairer result but this is how life seems to go as far as Arsenal is concerned of late.

Cut him some slack - we put in a great effort today and probably did enough to at least not lose. He is feeling pretty frustrated not specifically about decisions today but a cumulative effect over the last 6 weeks or so. No one at Arsenal begrudges you the win. You have played like title winners for a good part of the season. Your goals for and goals against tallies mark out your all round quality. If Wenger and gooners are feeling deflated just now then as football supporters it is a feeling you would experience yourselves at times.

Props to Arsenal for fighting hard. But Arsene needs to re-watch the game or someone tell him he is in denial.

I don't know why wouldn't Wenger just say that they were unlucky and deserved to get something out of the game? He could have praised his players and I would have agreed. He could have said they had an element of control through large periods - and I would have concurred. But blaming the referee, again... that's why many regard him as the worst loser in the country.

I don't think either of our clubs are in a position to take the moral high ground on this subject. Attemtping to do so is just pathetic and worthless because for Ferguson and Wenger you could produce charge sheets of pages and pages on the charge of being bad losers. Both managers are very bad losers and give awful post match interviews when they've lost, it's an unfortunate by product of being a winner.
