Stupid Players, Scum Bags & No Consistency

Stupid Players, Scum Bags & No Consistency

After a tortuous summer for Arsenal fans, the season has finally started …. And I can`t say it`s any better.

In a match which finished 0-0 which was largely uninspiring (did we create a clear cut chance?) there was much controversy.

First of all we got our first glimpse of Gervinho in competitive football for Arsenal He looks tricky, but his final ball let him down, he clearly likes a dive and he`s hot headed.

Along with losing Gervinho for the next three games (including Liverpool and Man Utd) we`ll also be likely to lose Alex Song after he stamp on Joey Barton`s leg. Of course we`d all love to stamp on the little c***, but Song has got a responsibility to his team mates and to the fans. He let us and himself down and I`ll be surprised if he goes unpunished.

Lastly I`d like to know where the consistency is from referees? Last season saw Abou Diaby sent off for grabbing Joey Barton and ragging him around by the shirt, yet when Joey Barton returns the favour his crime only warrants a yellow card?

The most ironic part of the whole sordid affair this evening is Barton grabbed Gervinho because he took exception his dive, yet does exactly the same thing when Gervinho punched/elbowed/barely touched him.

To think there was plenty of Gooners actually wanting to bring in Barton on a free transfer.

It actually wasn't a dive. Videos clearly show Tiote clipping Le Gerv. Joey Convict's worthless. No reason wasting our time on him. And to think some people over here actually wanted to sign him

Disgusting. Just stupidly disappointing. The game itself was 2 gallons of ***** in a 1 gallon jug. The typical Barton performance was just so predictable. The fact our players line up to laugh and shake Barton's hand is just as infuriating to me as anything else. I have a hard time believing Viera or Bergkamp would be so chummy with the scum.

that definately wasn't oughcontact t bring him down. As I said in the match thread. This is a contact sport, just because he touched him doesn't make it a pen. He took a dive twice in that match then got himself susspended for three matches. Nice debut.

I'm not saying it's a penalty but it certainly wasn't simulation. I mean the guy got clipped a bit. He lost his balance. Went down. Does not mean it's a penalty. Even the ref wasn't gonna book him for simulation in the first place. It's only when convict incited him that he reacted and got himself sent off.

I don't defend Gervinho in any way over his reaction to convict. Our players should know he's gonna try to wind us up. Song and Gervinho need their brains sorted out

Not a good start. We lacked creativity and players like Walcott need to remember that they have to be dangerous on the ball instead of.... doing whatever it was he is doing. I am trying not to be negative but if this was our best 11 (except Jack) then we are in for a tough season...

gervinho made the most of it, surprised he didnt break his ribs they way he threw himself to the ground. I actually think got that incident right, I like to think he would have booked gervinho for simulation. Barton only picked him up, see that many times in games. Song deserves to miss the games. As an AVFC fan, I may not know much about arsenal, but I would sack wenger. Going backwards as the profit margins get higher, all because his ego is bigger than the club. He has to find lesser known players or kids, cant let his ego clash with players who have a bigger ego (these are usually world class players). Good Luck.

Robbie Savage (a pr1ck) says it was a pen. Kevin Keegan (ex striker) says it wasn't. I don't even need to see the event to know who I'd go along with. Any contact made was made as Gervinho left his foot in. Again I have to say that allowing the whole fabregas/nasri debacle to overhang the seasons' start is negligence, I'm sorry but it is, pure and simple negligence.

Personally I think the club is lying. We didn't sign the Gervinho some people have been excited about, Wenger simply changed Eboue's name and had him grow a ridiculous mop of hair.
