Show Some Respect!
I couldn't disagree with D4NNYT more!
I moan and complain about things when they go against us 10X more than Arsene, and I think he has every right to complain because usually when he moans he's in the right. It's not just Wenger that moans either; Jol, Fergie, Maureen, Rafa, Hughes...just about every manager in the league moans if a decision doesn't go their way.
Again, I would have done the same thing as Wenger in every one of those incidents. The 'fight' with Pardew was because he was right in Wenger's face when he was celebrating a late winner; Wenger's reaction was a combination of passion and frustration.
He didn't deserve to be sent to the stands against Pompey so that's a non-starter.
And as for calling the linesman a liar, he was also right! You show me the footage of Adebayor trying to punch Fat Frank. You can't because there isn't any video because it didn't happen!
I agree, Wenger is a bad loser but that's a good thing because it means he's a winner. I love Wenger`s philosophy on life. He says that you should never be happy with what you've achieved, always strive to improve yourself and achieve more.
As for rival fans calling him a disgrace, that means nothing. If I say that Jol is thin does it make it true? No. The same fans also call us a 'Muslim club' and 'a refugee camp.' Are those things true? No.
I'm not one for blind loyalty but when you start to think your own manager is a disgrace I think you really need to start questioning your loyalty to the club!
I don't think Wenger has a problem with authority, he has a problem with losing (which I'm delighted about, I can't stand people who have no problem with losing).
Wenger has been the way he is for years and I wouldn't change him for the world. How often do you see Arsenal have a brawl?
