Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has pointed his big foam finger of shamey blame at Arsene Wenger, accusing his Arsenal counterpart of using the media to influence ‘referees, officials and everybody in football’;

“Arsene has most of the media in his pocket now and is almost – almost – affecting the officials so that you can’t tackle an Arsenal player. That’s something he’s very clever at working on and it’s almost working in his favour, you can see that.

“Read his interview before the Stoke City vs. Aston Villa match [Wenger accused Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross of being more akin to a rugby player], what he said and how he said it – he’s a very, very clever man in terms of influencing referees, officials and everybody in football.

He can’t be brought up for it because it’s about another match – rather just before he plays us. There is a perception that we kick everybody and Arsenal’s motivation is that you can’t tackle us as you aren’t supposed to.

In terms of saying people are trying to injure players he’s trying to influence, through the media, the referees and that’s something they shouldn’t get sucked in to.”

Big Sam moaning to the media about Arsene Wenger moaning to the media, whatever next?

    again big fat sam doesnt know what he is talking about ,arsene spoke about the stoke /spurs game in advance of playing the rugby match against blackburn. He mentioned this match so the ref would actually do his job and reprimand players for fouling /rugby tackling ,he has every right to say this just like big fat sam has every right to disagree with him on the state of the game.Big fat sam must have been shouting for holland in the world cup because he agrees with that type of play so why not have the balls to admit he thinks his players should be allowed to kick lumps out of other teams to win a match than pussy foot around blaming arsene for refs doing there jobs and sending the thugs out of the game for good.

    Old Fat head shows his true colours all over this article.
    1. Allardyce has been trying to cultivate a culture among the media and officials for years – That Arsenal are foreign/southern softies who don’t deserve a free kick when they get booted up in the air because you have to play that way against AFC.
    2. “You have to try to win the ball at all costs and if someone doesn’t get it quite right people get injured.” Ahem! Excuse me! Winning the ball at all costs is NOT part of the rules! The rules state that if a player is not sure of getting the ball and there is a danger he will cause injury to the player he should pull out.
    3. The sucking up reference towards Man U. God the man is like Fergies bitch. The way he came out and attacked Benitez for having a go at Taggart. The pictures of his fat, slavering head with Fergie at Ascot. Don’t believe this man people. He is a flamin cheat and I trust him about as far as I could throw his enormous head.

    His football main armoury is thruough brute force.
    England will be stupid to appoint him as tm.

  4. Sam says:

    Well Said, Arsene is a sook, always complaining, he should tell his players to harden the fuck up.

  5. […] if these are actually Big Sam’s words? This has all the hallmarks of being the nefarious Arsene Wenger‘s work. […]
