Arsenal Message Board
anytime there seems to be a good chance of u not getting top 4, the officials come along to rescue him.
once again, Norwich leading 1-0 & then a linesman who seems intent on making sure arsenal win rescues him.
gives a corner when it looks like being a goal kick.
then from miles away & with bodies In the way he gives a pen from the corner.
the ref is a few yards away & has a clear view & thinks it isn't a pen.
that linesman needs to be fired.
maybe he was the same 1 who "missed" the clear offside winner against everton.
or what about the awful last minute pen decision u got against Fulham.
the ref was right, if u give pens for those then there would have been about 8 other pens in the match.
u will easily get top 4 now. another 3pts thanks to the officials for u guys. I wish we had some help from officials. not even had a pen all season in the league!
ignore, im just jealous of the lucky ref/linesman decisions u keep getting.
still not as many as utd get thou. u got some way to go before u hit their heights.
maybe you should watch the replays. he was clearly pulled to the ground by his shirt while trying to play the ball , which in any game is a penalty (no matter what team you are). its poor refereeing for not seeing it, the linesman done he's job the ref did not , as is the case in alot of games when bad decision's are mad .....
If I were you, I'd look more closer to home rather than trying to blame others for your own team's failure.
Losing at home against mid-table fodder like Fulham and an away defeat against a poor Liverpool side ruined your chances of top 4 finish this season to be perfectly honest with you. Also, the over-reliance on a single player to always "bale" your team out isn't top 4 standard. Take away Bale out of your team and Spurs are effectively a mid-table side. Levy needs to invest heavily in top class players in order to stand a chance of challenging the likes of City, Arsenal and Chelsea for top 4 places as Bale can't always do it all on his own.

Hahaha, slayer, you really are a dunce, Arsenal are one point in front with six games to go, you haven't finished in the top four yet!

its stupid jimmy. we both battle all season for top 4. so we can then compete in a competion neither have got any hope of winning! so the main reason we want top 4 is the £££ earned by failing in the CL. whats happened to this so called sport?!
