Arsenal Message Board
Comical Ali more like....... what a dunce!
"Saturday’s match in Manchester was also unusual in that it could have gone another way had Arsenal not been on the wrong end of a trio of dubious offside calls, a trio of poor Olivier Giroud misses, and a rejected penalty appeal when Pablo Zabaleta handled in the box at 3-1 – although it did seem accidental, those are often given."

What game were you watching, Rikki? Surely not the above game, and I won't be surprised if you had your dunce hat on during the game, mid-table fodder.

I do feel sorry for the CHEATING AND DIVING Man U players..... WIN at all costs mentality eh!
What an average side Man U were and still are.....

ps, I tried posting this thread on the now defunct Mank board. But it seems that Yahoo! have finally pulled the plug since Le Poof, Ian Robert H, Eric Cantona, and other regular users have all deserted their posts. Typical,. People can dish it out but can't take it, lol!
On what Man U need to climb the table from their mid-table surroundings, Dai Dunga from Sao Luis, Brasil wrote ........
"Moyes needs to sign some big names in the January transfer window. Webb, Clattenburg, and Jonathan Moss; can't win the league on their own."
Makes me chuckle, lol!

...what do you make of the Lloris/Young incidents, was it "A stonewall penalty kick" as 'The Chosen One' angrily stated or another pathetic attempt by diver Young to con the official...?
...oh, someone tell JanuCheat to stop DIVING...picked up another yellow card for diving, his fourth for the season..:)

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng admitted: "They're the toughest opponents we could have had. They'll be totally up for it after what happened last year. Both matches will be very intense."
Hey 'virus-mad Rikki, take note son!

'mind games' my @r5e, Rikki!
You have nothing to back that 5hyte up as you're not privy to his innermost thoughts.
Unless you have a valid logical explanation to prove that Boateng didn't mean it as reported by the media, your mind games theory is a fanciful notion.
But WHY do you care about the Premier League LEADERS' CL qualification chances so much? Haven't you got enough to contend with already, e.g. Spud being a shyte team this season and your pathetic average ManUre side still below them in the league table? He he!
Whatever happens in the ties between Bayern and Arsenal, I can guarantee you now that we will be back in the CL competition next season, you can't say the same about your AVERAGE #$%$ side can you Rikki?

Well, look at the pathetic average squad and #$%$ midfield Fergie left behind.
I think it's fair to conclude that they are paying a heavy price for not challenging 'the greatest manager this country has ever seen'.
Don't know which of the two is bad: Fergie leaving behind a midfield bereft of creativity or Moyes continuing that same policy by adding Fellaini? Lol!
'Regardless of whether it is a player wearing a Man U shirt, or that of the Nags Head in the 4th division of the Trumptonshire League, diving on the football pitch is WRONG. Yes players should be protected from tackles which could cause serious injury, but trying to gain an unfair advantage or get an opponent cautioned is not "gamesmanship", it is CHEATING. But, since most professional teams nowadays are owned by businessmen, it is no longer a sport and fair play is a (costly) luxury which such businessmen will not allow to get in the way of their profits.
Fourth officials should have access to action replays and if they identify a blatant dive, and I will use Januzaj as an example after yesterday's impression of Tom Daley, the offender should be given an immediate red card. Two such red cards in one season should result in an automatic 10 match ban. If two players from the same club get bans for this offence in one season, the club should be deducted 3 points and fined the equivalent of the wage bill for the starting 11 on the week that the 2nd ban was accrued. Only by severe punishments for both player and club is this particular form of cheating ever likely to be curtailed. Given the influence and power of money men like the Glazers, Randy Lerner, Roman Abramovitch and Vincent Tan, no such action is ever going to be forthcoming and so the cheating will continue.'
Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon says Manchester United must have been 'blind' to let Paul Pogba go.
Speaking on Italian hit TV show Tiki Taka, the keeper said: "Pogba is one of those players who leaves you speechless.
"When he came we didn't know him but after only three or four training sessions we were impressed by his enormous qualities.
"My team-mates and me looked at each other as to say 'Are they blind in Manchester?' (to let him go away)."
Well, we were shocked too when Fergie decided to let Pogba go without a fight and instead persisted with the duo Cleverley and Anderson.

Talking about 'Man U', I checked the table after yesterday's Premier League matches and was very shocked that they are still rooted in 7th place below Everton.
I honestly was expecting them to move up the table a couple of places thanks to a rare win in 2014 at OT.
@ Rikki, where do you still Man U finishing in the table this season? I personally think Man U have got an almighty battle on the hand with Spurs for the last Europa League spots, but you never know with the luck of Man U, City could let them in into Europe through the back door by winning the Capital One Cup.

Moyes looked silly with his premature celebration when Man U went 2-1, but back came Fulham with the last laugh...
You couldn't make that up.... incredible game.
What a great finish by the Arsenal loanee.
I knew that Campbell had that in him, he won't have done his chances of sealing a move to the Emirates Stadium and a spot in our first team any harm with that finish.
I was honestly expecting Olympiacos to be on the receiving end of a real spanking by Man U, this is a damaging defeat to one of the weakest teams still remaining in the competition.
