If anyone had any doubt over the standing of Arsene Wenger in football just have a look in the newspapers and all over the internet. The only problem is the papers twist his quotes to make more headlines and controversy, for instance..
This is what Mr Wenger was quoted as saying “Sometimes I feel Manchester United get too much protection”….
But he actually said “Sometimes I feel Manchester United get too much protection and sometimes they don’t get enough” …
It’s like that party game Chinese Whispers.
On Talk Sport this morning Alan Brazil was having a Adrian Durham day, “ooh pelters”, “why don’t Wenger shut up Henry was arrogant”, “I have nothing against Arsenal but calling Ronaldo arrogant” “ooh the tube, send your tecks in” . The only person who agrees with Arsene is “ol red nose” Ferguson said: “What Arsene said is that it sometimes appears as though there is an arrogance (with Ronaldo) and I can understand what he is saying”.
The other thing Mr Wenger would like to see is a longer ban for some of these X rated tackles that have crept into the game recently, up to 10 games. Is that such a stupid idea when a players career could end and the perpetrator could get off with a 3 match ban or as little as a yellow card. I suppose it reflects the real world.
It’s just a short rant from me tonight as there will be a pre match post coming up in time for Sunday. I have heard that Kolo is out with a calf problem but Mr Gallas is back so we should be fine.
A big up for the youth team last night as a 3-1 win over the Spuds is great at any level, it should keep us in good stead for the future.
