Arsenal Message Board
There is no place for what Santi cazola did in this game. Blatant diving, he should face a long ban. Of course the AKBs, amongst the most deluded fans on the planet think all decisions go against Arsenal. Well, lets see them explain that non penalty. I apologise to all who love football on behalf of all proper arsenal fans, the club let the game down today, that should not be forgotten.of course the manager did not see it. I will not be attending games or buying merchandise until wenger gazidis and kronke are gone.
That worldly-wise football expert known as Slayer says Corzola didn't dive but fell over because he was trying to change direction.
Who are we to argue with such compelling logic from the village idiot?
I hate divers but I have my PADI license.
Until players get suspended based on video reviews after games it will remain a part of the game.
Unfortunately there are many divers in the game, from Young at Man U, to Bale and Spurs and let's not forget about Suarez at Pool, to name a few.
For me a dive should carry the same punishment as a red card for the player plus a financial penalty to the club, and should be able to be dished out after a complaint has been made and a panel have reviewed the incident.
Why do we get besieged by Deeprick when there's the slightest hint of controversy in a United game yet when Arsenal get points gifted by the ref, he's nowhere to be seen?
You got a penalty for a dive, got away with a Mertesacker handball in the area, and got a penalty after OC fouled a player.
