Wenger In Trouble Again

Wenger In Trouble Again

Arsene Wenger has been charged with improper conduct following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Portsmouth only days after being fined ten thousand nicker and warned about future conduct.

The FA released this statement.

'Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has been charged with improper conduct in relation to his words and behaviour towards the match officials at half-time of match against Portsmouth.'

'Wenger was subsequently sent from the technical area for the second half. He has until 5 January to respond to the charge.'

Wenger's charge and fine was a pretty clear cut case, it was there for all to see on tv and he even admitted the allegations, however this time things are not so clear, I have seen no footage of the altercation and Mr Wenger himself vows to fight this one all the way.

Should Wenger be found guilty, it will be likely he will be on the end of a pretty hefty fine and a touchline ban.

I can't really comment on this, but in general I think it's ridiculous that ref's aren't supposed to explain decisions, yet managers are punished for criticising them. Either we have an open dialogue or we don't, but the F.A are having their cake and eating it. The way they run the game is akin to fascism.

Ok this is stupid, you can critise players and diving etc but if you believe the refree made a stupid decision you are not allowed to voice your opinion? Refrees are just thick and seem scared to be told they might be wrong in any way.

Oh look, Spurs get a win and suddenly HTG's is back. So pathetically predictable.
18/12/2006 20:41:00
What evidence of that do you have HTG? Given that nothing was captured by cameras. Do you purposely embarass yourself, or do you genuinely believe yourslef to be a witty, intelligent rogue?

AW shouldn't get wound up over the free kick, minor decison either way. He should be screaming at his defence.

'E's an animal! And I pity 'im. Poor barsteward got wind of Dein David's latest plan to keep Club L'Arse from sinking in debt. Play concurrent seasons in both the Prem and France's Ligue Unh! Did poor Arson's head in, it did. Got a lot on his plate right now - running the snail farm that keeps the club level rolling in escargot, running his slave galleys full of young players out of Africa. But this, zut alor, c'est un trop!
