Saturday saw the return of the infamous Phil 'Tango' Brown for the first time since the controversial FA Cup match earlier in the year.
After Arsenal emerged victorious with a contentious William Gallas goal, Phil Brown
falsely accused Fabregas of blatantly lied about Cesc Fabregas spitting in the face of at the feet of assistant manager, Brian Horton, on the pitch in the players tunnel to which there were plenty of witnesses no witnesses whatsoever.
One common denominator about all football fans all over the world is that they never forget. They'll never forget a treacherous tackle, a disloyal player or a ridiculously orange football manager who wears a head set for no discernable reason issuing slanderous statements about their team's captain, their manager or their club as a whole.
So it came as no surprise the Phil Brown came in for a fair bit of stick on his return to the Grove this weekend. Chants such as 'You're getting tanned in the morning', 'Liar, what's the score, liar liar what's the score' and 'Cesc in a minute, you're seeing Cesc in a minute' were either clearly audible, or widely reported amongst Gooners after the game.
Arsene Wenger, rather gallantly, has come out in the defence of the Hull City manager, saying he doesn't agree with what was said, and that somethings are best left forgotten.
'I don't like that at all, I don't agree with it at all.' said Wenger
'Once again, I'm a guy who can have something happen which is very bad and the next day I've forgotten about it. I'm not someone who remembers things for six months.'
It's an admirable trait from the professor, but from where I stand most of the chants were in good humour, and Brown should count himself lucky that he only had to endure the wrath of the good natured Gooners, because as I'm sure Wenger himself could attest, things could have been much much worse.
