    in proper Oliver fashion he buys every dive by Traore and gives a foul against Arsenal. The

    Tierney bounces a ball to Saka in the Wolves box and Saka finishes with a quality volley.

    1 – 0 to the Arsenal against all the controlled Oliver flow.

    I think we’re playing okay. Not a lot of flare but nothing too risky and efficient. Happy so far.

    Sorry menace, I must admit I think Oliver’s been ok.

    The etiquette of treating your visitors with respect, giving them the comfort of a dressing room, the same as the officials is out the window. Arsenal are up the stairs in a makeshift room, while Wolves have a nice warm enterance/exit from their dressing room. The Arsenal players had to wait for a while in the open, getting cold while Wolves remained in the warmth of a tunnel.

    It is certainly something Arsenal should bear in mind when Wolves visit.

    In my opinion the referee has done nothing outrages , fairly even handed .
    The first half Arsenal have been very controlled , just got to be careful and not give the ball away in midfield .

    Nitram, Traore has gone to ground 5 or 6 times looking for a foul and Oliver has given 2 just outside the box. The boy is a bulky strong player but has a penchant for simulation and Oliver seems to fall for it.

    Half-time analysis on RMC Sport (France)…all talk about how clumsy Wolves are….not a word about how maybe Arsenal are not that bad…
    And I think we are playing ok, much better then the reputation.
    As for refereeing, I’ve seen worse. But I’m nervous nonetheless. Just please don’t give a chance to the PIGMOB representative…

    They are taking it to us right now. We can’t seem to string any forward passes together.

    Maybe I’m just so used to being totally screwed that a half decent performance seems great.

    Either way, he certainly seems to of of reverted to PIGMOB type this in the 2nd half.

    And yes we are certainly not helping ourselves the way we keep giving the ball away.

    This is definitely a different referee from the first half.

    A good win for the Arsenal despite some strange decisions and unsurprising cards that PGMOL give us as a charitable exercise.

    Wolves 0 Arsenal 2. It is 3 more points and thats what really matters.

    Brilliant.

    I reckon this is the most accomplished performance since Arteta took charge.

    Solid, clinical.

    Arsenal

    9 efforts on goal, 5 on target 2 goals.

    Wolves

    10 efforts on goal, 1 on target, 0 goals.

    And despite his disappointing 2nd half performance I still think Oliver is one of he better referees.

    Despite my runner in the Derby still hobbling around, a great day.

    Towards the end there Oliver did everything he could to help Wolves. Bookings for our players for “offences” that wouldn’t even have been called fouls the other way round. And a card for Torreira because he dared to consider his options for a few seconds at a corner. AMN only picking up a card for fouling somebody less harshly than he himself had been fouled.

    Michael Oliver, looks like a rat and behaves like one too.

    It’s rare I disagree with you but for me, Oliver is a fully paid up member of the Riley Disciples.

    No problem, fair enough.

    As I said to menace it may well be I’m just so used to being totally screwed.

    Oliver definitely changed his approach in the second half. The 3 bookings of our players were outrageous. He ignored the foul on Eddie which stopped him making a run on goal. Luiz or Mustafi would have definitely got yellow, or even red cards for doing that. Also we had a plausible penalty claim ignored. Wolves players were just falling over to get free kicks for non-existent fouls

    Well done Arsenal for beating Wolves plus Oliver

    Oliver is a cheat, and showed his colours in the second half. His pathetic booking of our players near the end looked to me acts of frustration in that his tilting of the game in the second half did not have the desired effect.
    No wonder none of the English refs are selected for the big summer international tournaments these days, they work for mike Riley and his agenda, not for the good of the game.
    And on the subject of Riley, looks like Utd heading for a record penalty haul this season, as they pull out all stops to ensure they are in next years ECL

    It’s funny that commentators and pundits seem by and large not to have picked up on the fact that with no crowd present to bias the referee, and the oddity for the home team of not having the noise, away wins are the norm. We’ve been telling them since before the re-start but they seem to keep on being surprised.

    A very pleasant win to take us to 7th and four points above the amazing wonderly all-conquering Tiny Totts. A rather pleasant day.

    WOO HOO, HOO ! Well done guys !
    Again another solid performance from the team. The defence was quite compact, and kept their attackers on a tight leash.

    We could have scored more at the end , but that clean sheet was truly a bonus.
    Up the Gunners !

    I scanned various media outlets. Not a mention of AFC being ahead of Spurs. Not surprising because it doesn’t fit the narrative. Some good press though and only a few Lawrence Award winners,lol.

    I looked for the frail Arsenal defence and instead saw a polished passing unit beyond which Wolves never looked like scoring.

    @Nicky,

    this is one thing I did notice as well. For me our defence is getting better with each game. Mustafi had a very good game. Did not see much panic, Martinez was excellent again. And in the second half I was far less nervous as I used to be in a one nil to the Arsenal situation.

    As for the ref, 2 fouls = one yellow, on both sides.
