On Talk Sports recently, Jonathan Walters boasted how Arsenal hated playing at Stoke and he would ‘go right through’ one of their players early on to get the crowd up, and how they knew Arsenal would wilt. Rich is not impressed.
They honestly don’t have the self-awareness to know it all depended for success on lousy (and if not corrupt then same outcomes as if it were) refereeing, not to mention fact it’s a pretty crummy thing to be proud of. Sickening when those tactics led directly to Ramsey injury, which he was probably on the pitch for.
Only in England, ey. Or maybe only to Arsenal in England at a particular point in time.
Walters joins Deeney, Kitson and perhaps a few others in nearly admitting the obvious truth. Neville lied repeatedly and claimed his manager came up with the genius suggestion, around game 50, that they should tackle us more because we did not like being tackled. Sure, Nev. If you believe that maybe it would explain Valencia.
PGMOL should be ashamed, as should the media, but these are shameless people it seems, and these admissions of the truth occupy some weird territory, as they can’t be regarded as revelatory given it was all right there in the open for anyone to see.
