Tony Pulis has reacted angrily to Arsene Wenger's 'out of order' observations on Stoke's tendency to employ a robust physical approach to their version of the game of football. He refuses to take it lying down, though that is often the very position that Stoke's opponents find themselves in, and has embarked on a letter writing campaign in order to ensure that justice is done and that Wenger doesn't watch Stoke play anymore.
We didn't fight two world wars so that Wenger could give his opinion, Pulis has protested.
Apart from a letter of complaint to Arsenal Football Club, apparently protesting that Wenger shouldn't have been able to see Shawcross kick Gomes in the recent game against Spurs, he has also copied the letter to the Premier League and the Football Association demanding that Wenger be blindfolded whenever any Stoke games are broadcast. It is a suggestion that the PL are apparently contemplating extending to other viewers.
Pulis is also believed to have written to the Mothers' Union in support of Shawcross' Mum who is naturally distraught at the suggestion that young Ryan has ever deliberately kicked anybody before as well as the Countryside Alliance, likening Wengers comments on Stoke to unfair campaigns against foxhunting, cockfighting and bear baiting. A first draft of letters to the Police, NSPCC, Royal College of Surgeons and the People's Trust for Endangered Species are understood to be in preparation.
Meanwhile Wenger finds himself under more pressure as a letter is now understood to be on the way from the Rugby Football Union protesting that their game isn't anything like as physical as Stoke's and claiming that Arsene was 'out of order' in saying it was.
