You got it right, paul. Unbelievable, I just can't believe this decision has come down. I really believed that the FA would do nothing since it was just a question of he said/he said. I also can't believe Hull's pursuit of this against a club that opened their arms to them in their preparation for the game that took them to the PL. A club that treated them very well when they first came to play at the Grove and beat us on our home ground. A truly classy club would've resolved this privately with Arsenal. I had only good things to say about Hull before, not anymore. I hope they go down and never come back up again.

It comes down to this for me: If Hull had of beaten Arsenal at the Emirates and got to the Semi-finals of the FA cup, do you not think for one minute, that every single member of the Hull coaching staff, medical staff, players, etc, would have run on to that pitch in vainglorious delight at knocking one of the big boys out. Of course they would. So this charge of entering the field is indicative of extremely sour grapes on Hull's behalf. As for the spit, I didn't see it, and you can be damn sure Wenger didn't.
