Put A Sock In It Sparky

Put A Sock In It Sparky

On numerous occasions, Wenger has received heavy amounts of criticism for how he protects his players in post match interviews. For example, Arsene practically has a copyright on the statement 'I did not see it'. But today, Mark Hughes went above and beyond any comical statement Wenger has ever made with this outlandish and down right moronic statement.

He told the City official website: "We just have to understand that he is an emotional guy and he wanted to share the moment with the fans in the corner with whom he has a special affinity. It is the same area that the Arsenal fans were in so there is the potential for people to see it as the wrong thing to do. We recognise that and so does Ade."

Rubbish. Just absolute balls. Have the kahones to either not comment on the celebration or say the club does not condone it. Don't make up a foolish excuse that Ade just wanted to celebrate with the City fans all the way on the other side of the stadium, who just happened to be by the away support.

Please don't call me bitter about the today's result. City won, fair and square. But this statement from Sparky has left me in a rage. Many Arsenal fans were injured today because of that celebration. (You will surely here more about that when Tim arrives back to London) And with Hughes making excuses for Ade, he is just as much as an idiot as his striker is.

Again, I don't want this to be construed as me being bitter about the result.

Yeah right, you'd run the length of the pitch just to celebrate with a bunch of home fans, not the away crowd at that particular corner. Classic case of insulting someone's intelligence, i.e. ours. Not sure about you Brice, but this is exactly what made me laugh in rage (strange emotion that).

Sorry, I just asked the same question on the other thread but was the chant the Arsenal kept firing at at Adebayor that pumped him up?

Lou you're right, it is insulting. And JB, I'm sure he didn't need a chant to get his blood boiling for this match.

I've no idea what went on between the player and the fans at Arsenal, save to say I know he was a lethal goalscorer but our Vital Blues who were at the game are reporting back with some unsavoury stuff that was getting aired from the first whistle.

Of course he was going to be on the receiving end of plenty of abuse, and that is fine, as long as it was not racial abuse. I believe our away fans are above racial slurs. That said, I wasn't at the game so I cannot confirm that.

The Arsenal fans weren't injured because of the celebration. They were injured because of their over reaction to it. They were giving him ***** all game and he celebrated his goal in front of them... that is no excuse for your fans kicking off and they only have themselves to blame. As for Vital Arsenal allowing an article where the writer calls an opposition player and manager a '*****' well that speaks volumes.
