comment on the article

It is interesting to note that both Zico and Sam Allydce both focused on refereeing decisions after there teams respective defeats to Arsenal. The fact of the matter is, both teams where totally outclassed by Arsenal and it would be nice if, rather than desperately scraping around for excuses for there defeats, they were both man enough to admit this.

It is interesting to see that everyone is talking about the penalty possibility and the player should be sent off. I would definitely have sent Dunn off for his tackle on the Arsenal goalkeeper. Absolutely no intention to get the ball, the only intention is to hurt the goalkeeping. Stop crying for the penalties, it goes your way when it is your time. You've already got too lucky goals.

the whole dunn and arsenals goalkeeper thing, that would no way be a red card, it was stupidity in the first place by the keeper, there was no need for him to rush out that far, even if dunn didnt jump they still would have collided, dunn jumped and turend his back and went into the keeper while at same time the keeper was running into him....not even a yellow for me

Agree, the point is that the final scoreline wouldn't have been 6-2 with the proper decision. Another 3 refs on the field I say...

Correct.

It would have been 7-3. You know seeing that we would have both got our stonewall penalties that is.

as a blackburn fan i was very annoyed when i saw it in motd2. I don't think being on level terms at 3-3 would have changed the game that much. But our goal diferrence has been poor for the past three seasons, we are just out of the relegation zone now, level with wolves. surely that extra goal could be useful?

When I saw the challenge in real time I thought the defender got a piece of the ball. Looking at it again from a different angle it appears contact was made with the man just before the ball. However, the ref gets one look from one angle and gets it when players are moving at speed. I felt sorry for the ref. And don't forget, he contributed to a great game overall. I think sam A is a bitter, twisted individual who always blames refs for his own inability. I really hope Blackburn are relegated now.

-----------------------------------------------

laugh How childish are you lot? Suppose its one of the problems with having millions of gloryhunters still not out of secondary school.

I hope Arsenal get bullied into defeat away from home at all the northern clubs and slide out of the champions league places resulting in a massive strop from Arsene Whinger and recurrent booing of unfashionable players (i.e. the next Eboue) at the Emirates. Then at the end of the season with another couple of cobwebs in the trophy cabinet and another summer spending spree of about 30m less than Tottenham, the entire Arsenal fanbase post 1996 goes back to their previous London day-trip activity of shopping at fashionable boutiques.

I've never heard him call the ref a disgrace or make any personal attacks on the ref.

After defeat to Chelsea "I consider the referee and linesman to be part of the same team, Chelsea".

Funny yes, respectful, no!

Oh look, Mr May is back. Who's for the attack today, it was disabled people yesterday? Perhaps people of a different race or nationality, homer-sexuals...?
