• 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.

    • And if it had been the reverse?? Numbing isn't it. Never count your chicken(especially if they are yellow ones) before they are .........??? Come on you Gunners.
