It's just Wenger who I really dislike intensely. His ability as a manager is not in question but he is the most ungracious and miserable person I can remember in football. His "dirty Everton" quote in the Metro is typical of the bullshine he often uses after he's been tactically taken to the cleaners by an opposition coach and he can't face the fact that he's been bested. We were superior than his team in the possession and passing game on their own pitch today .
He would have gained more respect from everyone if he'd have given us some credit for something everybody witnessed . A sad and bitter old man .. No wonder their "fans?" are so bad
I was praising him before the game for some nice things he said about us, but you're right, he's almost never gracious after the game. What a ridiculous thing to talk about us being overly physical when they couldn't get the ball off us for large periods. We did commit some tactical fouls at times but none of them dirty, and they did exactly the same to us in a number of advanced positions. A few of theirs weren't even called, a couple on Pienaar and the one on Lukaku out wide when he had his man one-v-one spring to mind. Barkley was also consistently fouled in the spaces 10-15 yards outside of their box.
