[Enter Expletive Here…]
I’ve had a lot of time to think about what happened at the weekend – and most Arsenal fans will be disappointed how the last ever North London derby at Highbury panned out. Although Wenger rested key players you can see why he did, with a huge, huge game against Villarreal tomorrow night – but like we saw against Pompy making wholesale changes is a big risk.
Despite that, Arsenal were second best in the first half even though Spurs failed to take their chances so we were lucky to be in 0-0 at half-time. But how many times has that happened to use this season?
Then it all kicked off on 66 minutes.
You all know what happened.
Eboue and Gilberto collided into each other and the ball ran to Michael Carrick, who obviously hesitates while the Arsenal players seemingly stop – expecting the ball to be played out (after all, that’s in keeping with the spirit of the game right?). But after Carrick dwells on the ball, he clearly continues with play, after deciding to see what has happened.
Now at the time, I was incensed because of what just happened and it was clear that they took advantage of a situation while players were injured on the floor.
After all, Davids fed the cross to Keane from where Eboue would have been!
And Arsenal actually put the ball out for Spurs later on in the game when their player was injured.
People will say who are we to take the moral high ground, but the fact is we put the ball our several times against a diving Villarreal team, against the cheating Spurs at the weekend – and when we did score a dodgy goal against Sheffield United a few years ago we offered to replay the game!
The most annoying thing to come out of all this is the BBC’s coverage of the whole incident, and the blatant lying of Martin Jol and his ‘team’.
Sky Sports revealed yesterday that when Carrick recieves the ball, Martin Jol can be heard quite clearly shouting ‘Play!, Play!’ – so you didn’t see the incident you cheat?
You can download an actual clip of the incident on Arsebloggers site.
The BBC were taking the moral high ground again last night on MOTD2, with Gavin Peacock saying Wenger must apologise for the comments he has made.
Is he a total idiot? Surely being a pundit he would have heard about Martin Jol urging his players to cheat?
And anyone who would have read Goals on Sunday would see that Chris Kamara tells us all what really happened.
After the game I heard all the b*llsh*t about the Spurs players ‘not seeing the incident’ and ‘not knowing a player was injured’ – and I actually believed it!Â
Carrick, Jol and the rest of the f*ckers just blatantly lied to everyone.
But the facts are that Spurs had to cheat to get a result against Arsenal, and even then they couldn’t beat our second team.
