Dictatorship news

Arsene Wenger needs to stop talking very, very soon…

Big mouth strikes again…


There have been three distinct periods during Arsene Wenger’s time in charge of Arsenal.

First there was Le Professeur Period. People were whining about how he didn’t have enough passion and how he’d never cut it in the English game because he didn’t go mental enough.

Then there was The Blind Period when he didn’t see anything. It was quite fortunate for him that it coincided with the time when Patrick Vieira, Martin Keown, Dennis Bergkamp and Co were going through their Nasty Gits Period.

Now we’re well into his Blue Period

ARSENE WENGER IS AS MAD AS HELL, AND HE’S NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!’ He wants you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’

This is what he has to say about UEFA after the Gunners’ Champions League exit to Barcelona…

“We are out of the Champions League, we have lost one of our big ambitions, we have been punished with a lot of damages and on top of that, we have to say sorry to UEFA.

“We have done nothing wrong. They organised the competition, they named the referees who come to the games.

“When you have a football game of that stature, you cannot come out with decisions like that and show a lot of arrogance on top of that.

“We can all understand that we can make wrong decisions, but after that it becomes dictatorship. It’s not any more common sense.”

A ruder site than The Spoiler may suggest that Wenger is in a less than perfect position to make criticisms because of bad decisions borne of dictatorships and arrogance…

    Good on Wenger, UEFA are bent as hell. About time someone stood up to these crooks. Unless you like to be bent over and ******, then carry on writing this crap.

    Funny post but I can understand how he feels and I am 100% in support of his actions. UEFA deserves some criticism for being a complete cow.

    I’m VERY curious about what was said. In his interview about all of this he insinuated that the ref said things to him the likes of which he has never before heard coming from an official. He said, “In ALL my years of football I have NEVER!” while clutching his pearls. He wouldn’t elaborate but said it would be in his report. Hmmmm….

    I think it’s a bit wrong to say this is an example of where wenger needs to shut up. While I realise what he’s said has angered/annoyed those who already have little time for his views, I feel his opinion is totally warranted in this case. Clearly arsenal were done an injustice on tuesday (the sending off, not the result) and to then be forced to apologise for their uproar must be gutting. The fact the UEFA have decided not to act on the standard of the refereeing but rather to chastice arsenal for commenting the injustice seems part of worrying recent trend in football. So for the spoiler to say someone who is speaking up against bad refereeing should ‘shut up’ seems rather hypocritical when just yesterday you posted an article about the state of refereeing and bad decisions.

    NB. I don’t advocate wenger/nasri’s action if they were violent or abusive, but i think wenger is entitled to say what he hs in his press conference

    Hes simply becoming more british… a big whiny c**t.

    Ref blew that call…. what are you morons bitching about…
    Ever hear an NBA coach criticize the league… BIG fines. Ask Mark Cuban and recently Stan Van G.
    Same thing for ice hockey.

    Dictatorships.. please, being a professional coach is being a dictator and league presidents like the NFL and MLB have only one way: THEIR WAY.

    Only difference is that there is a hierarchy in international federations while american sports are mostly self standing entities who answer to no one.

    I love how the corruption label is applied to FIFA-UEFA when the english bribed the same delegates (free trips to London 2012 which was rescinded when they didnt vote the right way IS a bribe).

    Referees will make mistakes, that will never change no matter what chip eaters who never reffed will tell you.
    I do think that big mistakes like the RVP card, the missed hit on Rooney by Luiz, the Rooney elbow sheuld result in a temporary reassignment.

    Im not even sure what people think UEFA should have done about the reffing.
    Did you want them to overturn the call an replay the game? Electrocute the ref after the game?
    What could UEFA have done to make sure the ref made the right call?

    I think Wenger should speak up and pay the fines… they have enough extra money in the coffers but its important that he does make his voice heard.
    Think of the fine as the equivalent of buying a full page ad to get your message across. How much is getting that message out worth to you?

    The best would be a Special1 TV rant like Voeyur did recently.

    >UEFA have decided not to act on the standard of the >refereeing

    As for the mouth breathers claiming that nothing is done about refereeing, it only shows your total lack of knowledge of what it entails to be a referee.
    Between the national, continental and FIFA training, lessons, camps, workshops, specialization seminars and all in between, they spent an amazing amount of time working on gettting better.
    Its easier to claim that it sux and feel morally superior by claiming that you have the insight that no one does.
    Its easier even when youre a gutless, ballless wonder who probably never had the guts to referee.
    That would demand courage and determination as opposed to wanking on a keyboard.

    International referees grow through a very intense and detailed process to get to the top and once there, their learning never stops.
    But Im a football genius knows all that.

    Over the past 2 years Wenger has behaved evermore strangley maybe a doctor of some sort is needed. I hope UEFA throw the book at him.

    However the fact that he made such a statement on the day after his local rivals surpassed his CL achivement this year, thus grabbing the headlines, shouldn’t be ignored.

    Trouble is that everyone knows he’s right. UEFA is arrogant, corrupt and not fit for purpose. Unfortunately, it is also currently in charge of professional European football. I applaud him saying it but nothing will change.

    just because he is being hypocritical doesnt make him wrong
