During last night’s 5-1 loss to Tottenham, the Arsenal forwards Bendtner and Adebayor squared up to each other. Bendtner suffered a cut on the nose. Gallas, the Arsenal captain intervened to separate them physically. The referee had words with them too. Flamini pleaded with them from the substitutes bench.
But amid the turmoil one man stood out. Yes, he’s our blind-as-a-bat, see-nothing, deny-everything manager, Arsene Wenger, who according to the BBC said:
“I did not know anything about it. I didn’t see it.”
It is time somebody told Arsene to stop lying and – for once – admit he saw his players misbehave. He is in danger of bringing the game into disrepute.
