Arsenal & Hull Fined For Being Mildly Annoyed

Arsenal & Hull Fined For Being Mildly Annoyed

Both Arsenal and Hull City have been fined after being found guilty of absolutely nothing during the match between the two back in December.

£40,000 and £20,000 were the respective fines for Hull and Arsenal after Sami Nasri did bugger all just before half time which resulted in a 22-man episode of not much.

The scenes were so incredibly forgetful that it took nearly 2 months for the FA to work out what went on, and after a 373 man team meticulously searched footage 24 hours a day for 6 weeks (including Sundays) they eventually found some images of a couple of players acting slightly pissed off.

Absolutely right. There's no place in the game for p1ssed off players. An increasing number of players are pretending to be p1ssed off and this simulation must also be stamped out. The use of video technology to establish acts of p1ssed offness is a welcome aid to identifying such misconduct. However video technology must not be used to improperly identify and improve the number of incorrect decisions by officials.

Wasn't it the pikey Hull player who started throwing his weight around and jostling Nasri? So how does it work that when we defend ourselves against s**t like Hull we're found guilty? They started it, they continued it and they trie dto finish it, so where doe sour charge come from?

It was honestly nothing, handbags as they say. They need to allow these players to show at least a little bit of spirit, togetherness and desire. They're taking too much emotion out of the game whilst allowing scumbags like Gerrard to escape unpunished.

Rubbish decision, but not a big deal. Hull admitted the charge, while Arsenal did not, and I dont see what Arsenal players did wrong here. I think the FA just played it safe, only so that they're not accused of a bias towards big clubs.
