I Hope You're Happy Now Nolan

I Hope You're Happy Now Nolan

Yesterday saw some heated discussion about Kevin Nolan's revelations that he instructed his players to give Theo Walcott 'a little kick' to try and get his head out of the game.

Most Arsenal fans were outraged by the comments, whilst many neutral supporters claimed there was still room for some rough and tumble in the sport and in no uncertain terms told us to stop whinging.

Well last night proved just what can happen when these shit-kicking cloggers use their rough-house tactics to compensate for their lack of skill after Man Utd youngster, Rodrigo Possebon, was left with a suspected broken leg.

I don't think that I was alone in hoping the horrendous injury suffered by Eduardo earlier this season would be an eye opener to the PL & FA and would see horror tackles like this severely punished, but lenient punishments for players like Barton and Guthrie just shows how small the governing bodies testicles are.

Should confirmation be received of a broken Possesbon leg, then Nolan should be held just as accountable as Pogatetz.

Here's to wishing Possebon a speedy recovery.

Edit - News just in that the United youngster's leg is NOT broken. Some good news at least.

I have had enough grief from Mancs saying we are moaners and how we should shut up about our rough treatment, well guess what Red Devils, we have had 2 serious leg breaks and a shiocking tackle at the weekend, basically a once a seaosn thing, so have some sympathy as what happened to your lad could just aswell happen to others in your team. Glad he's ok now though!

Perhaps Ferguson will reflect on his instructions to the Neville brothers re: Reyes.

You took the words out of my mouth mate! It was a shocking tackle, but Reyes got several of them in one game from the Neville sisters and I don;t hear complaints after that from Man Utd fans or players.

So basically with expection of the author, you are all saying you throw away any concerns and morals concerning you "bitter hated of the raised foot" when it happens to an oposition player...wow, how noble of you.

I don't think that's the case U4L - What I think people are saying is that after the grief we took from a fair few united fans when Eduardo broke his leg, told us to stop whinging and such, I think it's more a case of them wondering how they would act if the boot were on the the other foot.

Unfortunately, this is what is always going to happen when teams are outclassed. Since we have so many pacey, tricksy players who move the ball so rapidly it boggles the mind, they'll always be taking late clumsy challenges. Rocky - I have heard some ManUre fans on other sites calling for blood after the Possebon incedent. Quite hypocritical indeed.

No, U4Life, what I meant was the fact one of your best players Roy Keane actually admitted to trying to end a players career and I didnt hear any of your prawn sandwich brigade taking him to task, you didn;t either I would bet! So stop talking utter bollox
