Hoof and volley practitioner sam allardyce has criticised Arsene Wenger for his "attempts to influence referees" using the media to make them "untouchable".
I wonder if he's thought about his contribution to this.
If he sets up his teams to kick teams like arsenal into submission, and arsenal lose players to injuries, of course Wenger is going to go to the press.
He will try and protect his team from a manager whose management stlye is still stuck in the dark ages.
teams like his, with their technically challenged players use physicality to bully players, with brutal tackles and overall rough play involving over the top pushing and shoulder barging.
Arsenal have had their fair share of horrific injuries from this approach, so I say its fair game to let Wenger protect his players, he can't afford to lose a player every game (even if some of them are made of glass, *cough* Van Persie *cough*)
