comment on the article

Fantastic London Derby to watch, a thoroughly enjoyable game I thought, tough but fair throughout and some decent talent on display.

I think the main difference is the culture of playing a certain way at Arsenal, we play the same way at all levels so putting together a mixed side is naturally easier as everyone is so used to it. However, not to bash Spurs, Redknapp needs time as continuity and lack of it has always undermined Spurs, before his arrival.

I was pretty impressed with Sandro in the middle, and Keane did a great job on Wilshere in the 2nd Half. Wislhere, Koscielny and Nasri shined for Arsenal in a game I think, we deserved to win overall.

I'm not specifically slating Bentley, but he does way too much in a 'I have something' to prove way against us and I thought he was a hinderence to you boys today. He had chances to play others in but played for his own ego instead. Just my opinion.

Anyhow, a cracking game of footy and I look forward to our full first 11's meeting in the not to distant future.

Boy you're bitter!! So Wenger is not to blame at all for his rant on Saturday? It's the official's fault right? Is that what you're saying?

Try to convince yourselves all you want, but being fed up of Fergie Time is a darn good reason.

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

You've just spanked your local rivals 4-1 at their place and still all you can think about is United?

Its a compliment I suppose <ok>

Wenger doesn't do himself any favours with the timing of his complaints, but I stand by my belief that the complaint itself is justified.

Now were I obsessed about United I'd talk about Ferguson's antics when he doesn't get his way. Hoo boy does Wenger not come close to that...

So do you feel what SAF allegedly said about Rob Styles not being fit enough to referee a match of that pace fully fitting of the ban received? Oh, wait a minute, SAF get a ban....nooo it never happened did it?!?! <doh>

And you think that Wenger or any manager is entitled to physically remonstrate with the officials after a game?

"So do you feel what SAF allegedly said about Rob Styles..."

...eeexactly. If you'd like we can discuss some of the more notorious examples over a period of time that predates Wenger's tenure in England. But as WafU noted above, this isn't the article for that.


"And you think that Wenger or any manager is entitled to physically remonstrate with the officials after a game?"

You make it sound like he punched the guy out! Admittedly he would have crossed the line had he done that. (On the other hand I must also admit I'd have laughed my head off if he had!)

Off topic as usual, nice to see arry 'I'm a f.... football manager' Redknapp take defeat so graciously.

Ignoring the Gibbs chance given offside and an offside Keane goal being allowed to stand, as well as a clear penalty not given in the first half?

4-1 - not an important game but nice to shut the Spurs fans up, although there weren't many left at WHL were there ...

Hope ManU go through and Arsenal meet them in the next round, be good to see which reserve team is better!

Back that up with some facts and I'll believe you.

All managers whinge when they lose or lose a lead, Redknapp is today whinging about Nasri, Moyes about the ET against ManU .... it isn't just Arsene people, wake up.
