Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said a million times over the past years? It was a tough game and the breaks didn't go our way. Wenger made 8 changes to the side that beat Chelsea only 48 hours ago, and that proved to be a very ill-advised move. Oh, how moods can change in such short time. We deserved to go behind early, but unfortunately the goal came because of a clear dive in the box by N'Zogbia. Truthfully, it was a great dive. I was fooled, until I saw the replays. After that the team did well to come back and grab the lead before halftime, but Arsenal never put the game away. Wigan got back level and Arsenal didn't get a penalty that was deserved. How Wigan fans can boo Wilshere and shout cheater at Bendtner after one of their players dived and head-butted another professional is beyond me. In the end though, we should have won and that didn't happen.

There was no difference between that handball by Wigan and the penalty Spurs got against us. It's the inconsistencies not the decision itself that drives me insane.

Agreed. Even Cesc has said the same on Twitter.

wigan fans can boo wiltshire because he is only a wee thug.wigan were afraid to tackle because because arsenal players were sqealing and falling to the ground.and that useless ref fell for it every time.i have lost a lot of respect for arsenal after their cheating performance tonight.you were lucky to get 1 point.

Shut up. Nzogbia's horrendous dive? That is all.

Your stats are almost as biased as Probert with the possession %? How come there wasnt a booking following the awarding of the pen? Also how come Mike Dean, who was the only official to see N'Zogbias head thingy on Wilshere, didnt see Bendtner elbow Cleverley? Football is an emotive sport, an enjoyable, entertaining game tonight and the result was the fair one, even though both sides could have done with the win.

Well what a dive indeed. He needs to be selected for whichever country he comes from for the London 2012 Olympics Diving event.

Also, how there wasn't a yellow card after the penalty is beyond me. That dive clearly deserves a booking.

Eboue=GOD (Named in honour after possibly the biggest diver in the premiership) 's comment moaning about a johnny foreigner diving and suggesting he join "whichever country he comes froms diving team" is about as ironic and amusing a post ive ever seen
