Shear Madness

Shear Madness

Arsene Wenger was less than happy in the way referee, Dermot Gallagher, handle Arsenal's 5th away defeat of the season yesterday.

Le Boss made his feelings known in the post match interview.

'I think it's very difficult to take the way we lost the game, we were the better team in the second half, they decided to go more physical and the referee allowed more fouls, sent a player off and I don't know why.'

Alan Shearer persistantly barged, fouled and elbowed his way through the match, something Wenger picked up on.

'We played well and I just believe we were not protected - every challenge in the air was a foul. We know Alan Shearer can do that in this country.

'The rules are the rules and the referee needs to make them respected.

'It's difficult 10 against 11, we were unfortunate with the goal and the team did battle well and I can congratulate my team with the way they played.'
