'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Double-Standards?

Last week, whilst casually perusing the football pages of numerous newspapers, couldn`t help but notice that Arsene Wenger had a few words to say on a certain subject.

The Frenchman had latched onto the Chelsea debacle and their complaint about Mark Clattenburg, believing that such matters should remain in the dressing room.

Therefore, when it comes to Wenger suggesting, publically, that he felt Patrice Evra acted as if he`d been killed in the challenge that saw Jack Wilshere receive a second yellow card and subsequently a red card, I reckon it stinks of double-standards.

Thankfully, Patrice was able to tell the incident as it was, redressing the balance somewhat when he commented about such a scurrilous suggestion,

"I think he didn`t look for the ball."

"He stood on my legs and it wasn`t the first time."

"The referee did a good job and that`s it. That`s the rule of the game."


If the finger of blame should be pointed in anyone`s direction it should be that of Arsene Wenger who didn`t have the intuition to take off a player that was quite visibly tiring a matter of a few games into his comeback after a long lay-off.

Will these bitter blues get out of here. Lets see how many of those cards were warranted and correct shall we? Arsenal: Wilshere made at least 3 yellow card worthy fouls alone in the game and as such rightfully got sent off, you don't hear any Arsenal fans saying it was the wrong decision. Chelsea: Ivanovic fouls young denying him a clear goalscoring opportunity so it's a red. Torres got 2 yellow cards one wrongfully for diving and the other wrongfully because it was a red card challenge in the first place so overall he got what he should've got much earlier on in the game but you chelsea fans seem to have all missed that chest high challenge and conveniently ignore that it's a red card worthy challenge. Liverpool: Shelvey got a red card for having 2 feet off the ground in a challenge, the only thing that was dubious about it was that Evans didn't get sent off with him. No stop crying like a little bitch and get on with it loke everyone else does when they get numerous decisions against them when playing chelsea, nothing more pathetic or annoying than bitter Chelsea fans. Hypocrites through and through never whine when decisions go in their favour but if a decision goes against them, rightfully or wrongfully, it's because everyone hates them including the FA, UEFA and FIFA, so pathetic that they just can't admit that they were the 2nd best team on the day.
