Sour grapes Arsene?

Posted on November 30, 2009 by in Arsenal, English Premier League

This is what Arsene Wenger said about said about Didier Drogba….. sounds like sour grapes to me

“It’s funny because he doesn’t do a lot but he is efficient in what he does. You would be surprised by the number of balls that he touched today. Drogba is in a period where he kicks the ball and it goes in. You can’t tell me that for the first goal, the ball went where he intended it to go. At the moment he just goes for it and it goes in. The first was the goal of a striker in complete confidence… How can he see Eduardo kicking the ball out of Cech’s hands when there was a Chelsea player in front of him? That was a massive mistake by the referee. I just think that we made mistakes and the referee got the turning point of the game wrong: 2-1 is different to 2-0 at the start of the second half. The referees this year … our game with Man United, the Chelsea game … they have been decided by the referee. The referees don’t want video but it’s difficult to understand why not. Why doesn’t he ask? Because he’s too scared to be intimidated, to be under pressure to use the video.” – Arsene Wenger.

Ancelotti said  “I believe we will win the title.”

Now there has been a lot of comment about referees recently.  Who knows if it is justified, but, the referees are an excellent may to manipulate the ebb and flow of the premiership.  Taking Forumula One as an example it is clear that manipulation on a fundamental basis in sport is not uncommon.

The results at the Emirates on Sunday is testament to Chelsea’s great defence. Just look at the number of clean sheets they’ve had this season.  It is a amazing to think that this should be possible with all the injuries woes Chelsea have suffered of late.

In comparison out of the 13 games Arsenal have lost this season they have conceeded 18 goals…. not a pretty sight Arsene.
