Southern softies crying again about a couple of good hard tackles
You know, Wenger's kind of funny.
In New Zealand for the Women's World Championships Ice Hockey Div 2 A and glad none of Wenger's guys are in the team or these girls would have made them cry. Pretty good lookin' bunch from Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and Poland but.... they play it hard and fast.
Makes Wenger's comments kind of childish. Liked Moyes's comments .... you are allowed to tackle in football......... at least, in the North.
That's right Arsene, we all saw the fleet of ambulance's picking up your brave wounded soldiers. What a tosser.
In the 70s, those challenges would have been nothing. I would have liked to have seen Wilshere react to a Norman Hunter challenge as he would have been reduced to tears.
Football has gone soft, and it is sad to see.
Said it before and I'll say it again, shithouse team, shithouse manager and shithouse fans, fantastic stadium though.
After watching the game again today, I realized Arsenal are worse than Man Utd. They cried at every decision, even after like-for-like fouls.
And as for Gibbo's booking, he won the ball cleanly, yet they still want him sent off! Bunch of yaps.
Wenger is suffering the effects of not being successful for some time. But when it came to unacceptable behaviour on the field, he did not mind Patrick Vieira 'dishing' it out with tackles that had that ouch effect on the opposition. In those days, when Vieira was about, Arsenal were winning trophies.
