As Arsenal's early collapse meant the Gunners had the weekend off, I rose early on this Sunday morning, just in time for the kick off of the match between Chelsea and Spurs.
I watched with interest as the match turned out to actually be quite entertaining, the game ending in the familiar Spurs capitulation.
However one of the more interesting incidents was a clash between Josie Mourinho and the referee.
After witnessing a particular incident that he took exception to, Mourinho lept to his feet to protest to the match referee, Mike Riley.
After a brief exchange there was very up close footage of the Chelsea manager mouthing the words 'hijo de puta', not once, not twice, but thrice to the match official. Indeed the incident was even noted by 'commentator' Mark Lawrenson who stated he knew what he'd said but couldn't possibly say what it meant on national television.
'Hijo de puta' means 'Son of a whore'.
You maybe wondering what an Arsenal website is doing commenting on such an issue. Well in the interest of continuity I wondered if the FA would look at this incident and act accordingly.
Arsene Wenger faces charges of improper conduct after labelling officials 'liars' following the sending off of Manu Adebayor in the league cup final.
Surely this is just as bad, if not worse than anything Arsene Wenger has been up to in recent times?!
