    The ref got it right.


    I just looked at the video again, and Ade deserved all he got, the ref had a great game, and, for once, wasn't biased towards Arsenal.

    It looks like your 'luck' with referees just ran out.

    • I agree.

      You can't deliberately rake someone's leg and put your elbow in their face and expect to get away with it.

      Adebayor is a mindless THUG who should be BANNED for life. Aren't you Arsenal fans ASHAMED of having him in your team? [OK - last bit is just having a larf at Slayer's expense as he writes similar drivel on our board.]

    • to right he did ,when will winge wenger look in the mirror and stop blaming the world for his teams shortcommings ,nothing for assnil again and im glad all there fans are reminising big heads

    • ade did not touch the player but you can't put your foot up like that as it is viewed as reckless and dangerous.he was stupid as he got the first one with the same foul,he has himself to blame and I can't defend him.we lost eduardo and diaby for that type of foul before.so why should anyone defend stupidity.at 25,ade does not behave like a senior player.

      • Credit to Xavier for his honesty! He's quite right that no contact was made, but the (perceived) intent warranted a yellow, and he did the same thing twice. Arbeloa made a massive meal of it, but he trains with Gerrard - what do you expect!

      • Horrendous tackle? I don't think you ever played football SeanKongphoo - or - whatever your name sounds like - something like the poo-poo of a bush fowl. Adebayo was simply trying to shield the with his body, which is normal if you have the body strengh to do it. I'll award an Oscar to the player for diving. Another one to the referee, Howard Webb, for having his brains in his anus and also for ruining a perfectly entertaining game. And to you Fowl Shit, for your bigotry and prejudice. If you don't like a player, be man enough, or is it woman enough, or may be you're trans-genda, in that case "it" enough to say it.

    • Enough of this un- educated horse shit.Despite your name you probably have never played football in your life. There were only two players Liverpool had to get rid of and get a win at the Emirates, and they succeded in the first, but came unstuck with second. Gerrard is a past master at faking it, and its well known that when Liverpool are chasing a winner or equaliser late in the game, watch for him wanting the ball outside the penalty area and then charging in with the ball looking for foul or penalty. It is also well known that despite referees being regarded as unbiased or completely neutral, some are known by nature not to having a liking for certain players. I strongly suspect this to be the case with Adebayor. If you have a video of the game in question, take a longer look at the referee, he's practically waiting for the opportunity, and as for the so called 'flailing' arm, Adebayor, in case you hadn't noticed, is well over 6 feet tall, has long arms and legs, is a striker, and was back helping his defence, a set of cicumstances that the referee fouled to take into account. And we shall not go into the fact that he was the otherside of the player fouled and was looking directly at Adebayor, a fact quickly picked up by the well coached Liverpool player, who duly went down as though he were pole axed. Lets face it when a team like Arsenal play the way they do, and make the opposition look like waxworks from Madame Tausaud's standing there, what does a professional footballer manager do? The answer to that is recorded in the horrendous injury list Wenger has had to put up with season after season. Because you can rest assured that when Tony Adams and the ring of iron were around, it certainly didn't happen then. Agreed?

    • when I watched the BBC highlights Hansen (a liverpool bias) said: "he was shielding the ball and the contact he made isnt enough for the player (arbeloa) to go down."

      he also said that if you get booked and sent off for tackles like robbbie keanes an adebayor the the prem would ruined...

      I agree for once.

    • risker, stop being paranoid. Having your elbow UNDER someone's chin is aggressive behavoir.

    • its called holding somebody off so he cant get to the ball. Its a foul for using his foot to stamp but not a yellow.

      read second post. he says he should be banned for one game...no actually read the whole thread and see what lynden says...and shimo

      i rest my case

    • Is this video online so that the Arsenal fans can get a dose of reality?

    • read lyndens post or do you want me to quote it?

      "he will miss 1game as that was the jurisdiction before the tournament, although i hope we appeal as if riera dont get a red card v arsenal, then vidic should not either, that said i thought it was a red but we will cope as we are the best team in th world with the best squad, so no problem. even the fa could not stop us pmsl "

      he said that just because keane didnt get a red for a good challenge vidic should be allowed to play which means he is even more of a perfect cocksucker.

      then we have another case.

      "If FIFA/UEFA can't easily see how the other guy overacted to Vidic, then there is something seriously wrong. They preach wanting to stamp out simulation, well here is a chance for them to clearly say, "Yes, Vidic did deserve the red but, it was hardly anything more than trying to shove the guy off of him and it wasn't violent"

      I doubt it though since Blatter had it in for us over the Ronaldo thing and Platini wants to see less domination of English teams in the CL. "

      there he is saying that vidic should be let off because the other dude simulated.

      and now i'll rest my case with a quote from you directed to you

      "No wonder no-one here takes you seriously"

      (lol, your funny)
