    @Travis – this shows how racist the English referees are. They always stand for the British player. This double standard is endemic.

    Like it or not it’s true, and don’t even bother try try telling me otherwise!!!

  8. COYS says:

    I can at least agree on one thing Mike Hunt said…

    “AssEnal goin to hELL this seasOn.”

    @Anabelle – that is the most idiotic comment ever. The fact JB wasn’t sent off, was not because the Linesman and Referee are Racists, it was because neither the linesman or the referee saw the JB pulling up Gervinho but the linesman did see Gervinho slap Barton. No matter how hard you hit someone or slap someone in the face the states you should be given a red card.

    I absolutely unashamedly love Ginger birds…thank you Chris for posting a photo of one.

    Wenger is a professor. When he goes into his laboratory the critics will be proved wrong. He has always done it when only the optimists believed in him.

    song was punished even if the match officials did not see the incident during the match. the same was not done this p….g called barton. tough luck Gervius, some people are more equal than others. The racist FA condones the behaviour of barton.
