Oh, how long they have been waiting for this one to come. And now they can finally have a go at Arsenal again. Yes I am talking about the Cesc tackle right at the end of the game against Wolverhampton.
Like flies on a fresh shit they can flying in and all had only one thing in mind: exposing Cesc as the biggest criminal in football history. On the way attack Wenger for something he never has said. And finally try to destabilize Arsenal.
The charge of the loony brigade was, from where I am looking at England, laid by MOTD and the reporters who had seen it very clear.
And make no doubt about it: the tackle from Cesc was late and deserved a yellow card. But according to super-loony Hansen this was a straight red card without any doubt. And as Lee Dixon was appointed to play the second fiddle in MOTD he could only agree with the cleanest player the world has ever seen: Alan Hansen.
And yes this is the Hansen who never sees any red cards. He calls leg breaking tackles a bit clumsy but you hardly hear him calling for red cards. Except when it is an Arsenal player, then he changes his view and he must be sent off.
And yet those “clean up football-loony figures” missed a few tackles in the same game. They didn’t find it necessary to show them on TV. I talk about the frontal tackle from leg breaking Henry on Arshavin. A frontal tackle with studs showing right on the shin of Arshavin who lucky for him and for us managed to just get his foot of the ground at the moment of impact. If he wouldn’t have had that reaction he could have found himself in the Ramsey or Eduardo or Diaby situation.
And the ref even didn’t see it. He even didn’t give a foul for what was the most dangerous tackle of them all. The fans in the stadium even sang about cheating. Well I hope they get to see a replay of the Henry tackle as it really was a bad one. But super-Loony Hansen did not find it necessary to talk about it. Oh, no this wouldn’t fit in their picture.
We also had a dangerous tackle from Hunt on Song. In fact it was almost a replay from the Essien sending off at Chelsea. Song came in with a sliding to kick the ball away and Hunt came in with both feet and landed on the ankle of Song. And again the ref did not see it and gave no foul. And again the loony-pundits did not see it and made no mention of it. And again the crowd would sing their “cheating Arsenal” song. I wonder if they would see these fouls again if they still would sing this song. Well maybe they would as they are so blinded and manipulates by the loony-pundit gang.
To go in to the Cesc tackle: both players were running in the same direction next to each other, one player played the ball and the other tried to block with a sliding tackle with one leg. Cesc was late and did catch the Wolverhampton player. So a foul and a yellow card was very justified. But this wasn’t a frontal tackle. This wasn’t a tackle from behind. It was a tackle from the side which came late.
I really don’t like such tackles and they will also get a yellow card on my field but to talk about a straight red card like the loony-brigade did at MOTD is very new to me. A few weeks ago Chamakh suffered a tackle on the side line when a defender came in with both feet from behind and off the ground. That was dangerous and reckless and only the fact that Chamakh felt it coming prevented a serious injury. And then those same loony-characters said this was just a yellow card and should not have been a red card. And then they talk about being consistent? You got to be joking. But no they were serious about the Chamakh tackle then and about the Cesc tackle now.
But the fact that in the same game, even with my very dodgy stream I could see the dangerous tackles from Henry and Hunt and yet they MOTD loonies didn’t see them? Or maybe they didn’t want to see them. You bunch of hypocrites.
What they are trying to do is what they have tried with Eduardo. They just tried to make life as difficult as they could after he had jumped out of a tackle and got a penalty. And now they are trying to paint Cesc as a criminal. The reason is clear: they just want to drive Cesc away from Arsenal. They just want to help him make up his mind to go to Barcelona. They hope and think that by painting Cesc as a criminal they will make him leave Arsenal and weaken our team.
Well I’ve got news for you loony-pundits: I know what you are up to and I can see your mind games. In my match-ref review I will talk about all the incidents and not just lift one out that is fine for me. I will also talk about the other tackles I have seen and which you pundits could not see.
But what the heck. I think I have told on this site and given evidence on many occasions that you did play football in your playing days but that you know nothing about the rules. And that you are more biased than I am as an Arsenal fan when I try to write a ref review of a game. And you know what: you are paid to be neutral as I am paid nothing and biased can be expected of me. But I know the rules and the loony-characters in MOTD know football. But there is a difference between both. But I don’t think even they would understand this.
You have exposed yourself once again as an Arsenal hater Mr. Hansen. You really are not fit to talk about the rules. Get in a former ref or someone from outside the EPL to explain the rules to the public and maybe you could care to listen also and learn from it.
We await your Everton Arsenal comments with interest.
