Allardyce Talking Arse-nal Again

Allardyce Talking Arse-nal Again

As the mighty Gunners prepare to take on Bolton (again), vile wilderbeast, Sam Allardyce has decided to stick his massive fat nose in on things that are none of his concern.

Sam 'Why didn't they pick me as England manager, ergh herr herrr' Allardyce hit out at so called criticism over time wasting made by the lord our Wenger.

Slobber chops said, 'Arsene has been very clever in choosing to make a little psychological profile of the time-wasting issue,'

'It is as though the opposition always do it against them and they never do it.'

'But it doesn't fool us and it doesn't fool most of the other managers either because we know they are just as good at doing it as anyone else when they are winning in the final minutes of matches.'

'He criticised us heavily for time-wasting when we nearly beat Arsenal last season, so hopefully he will be moaning about us again tomorrow.'

I read further comments today (I forget where) where Fatty Arbuckle suggests that Arsenal are just as guilty as other teams with regards to time wasting, claiming that if we hold a slender lead we hold up play and keep the ball at the corner flags and so on in a bid to gain advantage. So while Allardyce suggests Arsene has been very clever, Fat Sam has exposed himself as a bit of a fool.

The time wasting that Allardyce claims we are guilty of is NOT time wasting, it is playing football. Arsenal's ball retention is among the best in Europe, the last time I checked it is not against the rules to keep possession of the ball. Is it our fault if other teams do not have the ability to regain possession? At least they have the opportunity to do so.

The time wasting that Wigan, Newcastle, Bolton, Everton and so on have been guilty of is cheating, plain and simple. It does not offer the opportunity to the opposing team to win back the ball, it IS against the rules and it detracts from an otherwise fantastic game than millions of fans pay vast amounts of their hard earned cash to watch.

For my second point, I'd like to point you in the direction of his final paragraph. Whilst speaking on the subject of time wasting, he claims that Mr Wenger criticised him and his team for time wasting last season, he then goes on to say that he hopes Arsene will be moaning again tomorrow. Could old blubber butt possibly be telling us that he and his team fully intend to time waste again tonight?

3-1. He can ***** his mouth. I am dam proud of the Arsenal players. Diaby and Denilson were the enforcers. Hleb and Rosicky did their art work. Arsenal outpowered Bolton. I thought that these two should play in this game for the reasons they displayed seems I thought like Arsene which is good :)
