City 3 Arsenal 0: Post Match Reaction

City 3 Arsenal 0:  Post Match Reaction



After City made it 10 goals thumped past Arsenal in just over a year at Eastlands, the two managers had their say as The Blues closed in our rag revenge mission...

Arsene Wenger embarrasingly refused to shake Mark Hughes' hand at the end of the game having watched his side cautioned for fouls on six different occasions:

'I'm free to shake hands with whom I want after the game. I have nothing more to say about that...I had no professional courtesy.'

A hilarious turn of events for Arsenal to swallow after all the moralising about sportsmanship we've endured from Gooners following FourTwogate. Bordering on the toe curlingly childish, Arsehole Whinger bitterly went on:

'To play in the quarter-final of the Champions League or the semi-final or final is ten times more difficult than to win the Carling Cup.'

City boss Sparky was in defiant mood amid cheering reaction around the stadium to news of City drawing Taggart and co in the semis:

'It's a fantastic draw. We are excited by it and the wider world will be as well, I think. We are going to enjoy it. Over two games we'd back ourselves against anyone and will try to get to a Wembley final that this club hasn't had for a long time. There has been a little bit of negativity in recent weeks but I think that has been alleviated this evening. It has been a frustration for everyone but we've played 17 games and only been beaten in one. You can't deny we are going in the right direction now.'

Of Whinger, who he waved sarcastically at as the fuming Arsenal coach stropped down the tunnel:

'Maybe he's used to winning games and when he does lose sometimes he doesn't know how to behave. At one point I was over on his side of the technical area and he seemed to be a bit aggrieved by that. But I think he is probably more aggrieved because he got beaten. I have been to the Emirates Stadium and been beaten 6-2 but I still offered my my hand at the end...
I am a little bit disappointed in that respect. You should be a bit more gracious than that because it is unnecessary. We all hurt when we get beaten, but you should always offer your hand.'


You begin to wonder what it is about Frenchmen with Arsenal connections and hands this season!

Meanwhile, a buzzing City squad will assemble at Carrington today raring to welcome a Chelsea management team and the odd senior player who were still in Blackburn gone midnight last night.

With L'Arse fans desperate for any kind of trophy, they will not look too kindly, I suspect, upon Winger's words: "To play in the quarter-final of the Champions League or the semi-final or final is ten times more difficult than to win the Carling Cup." ------ If it is that easy, then you should have won last night, no?

It would of been easier if we had played a couple of first team players. Respect is a two way street and Hughes has shown a lack of respect towards Wenger for a few years. He should still rise above it all and be the bigger man, but to be hoenst with you i wouldnt P*SS on fire to put Mark Hughes out.

Whats that? You beat us but are still behind us in the league? You fail to beat Hull, Fulham & Burnley at home? My my indeed. As for you mark, probably Hughes himself on this forum. Walking in to another managers dug out, swearing at him, Absolving Adebayor of any blame for stamping in Van Persies face, or the time when he was at blackburn he walked in to arsenals dug out to hit the ball out of his hands. Do i need to go on, no thought not. Would you shake this someones hand if they showed you such this kind of 'respect'.

Sending children to kick ***** out of the big boys, was never going to work. Drop a set and get on with it. And like i said your first team aint much better. Trying to take credit for other teams results? If you need straws, ask, we will give you some.

I dont care about the Carling cup, and neither does Wenger hence why we have always maintained playing our youth/reserve team players. I wont pretend to care about this competition to make you happy. I expected Man City to win, while hoping we could cause an upset. My point was only that Hughes is a nasty lying c*** and he tried to make it look like Wenger was a bad guy for not shaking his hand when he goaded and swore at him through out the match. Seriously, cancer wouldnt be harsh enough for this guy.

Yes, and we rested Michael Johnson and Nedum Onuoha. Arguably the finest players in their position at SportCity..
