I'll take Wenger's moaning as long as it keeps him employed. He's become Mr. Irrelevant.

They highlighted it very clearly and it shows where Raheem was tripped, the offside was offside, but all clubs have been victims and beneficiaries of wrong decisions concerning offsides.


Indeed. Pep himself mentioned Arsenal winning v Burnley (?) last season in the 96th minute with a goal that was handled into the net. I don’t expect Wenger complained about the standard of refereeing then.




Wasn't there also a question of offside as well before the handball?

I've been trying to find an update on Delph's injury at the end of the game but with no success. With Otters suspended for Leicester this could be a concern.

Not shown as withdrawn from the Internationals yet, so it may just have been a dead leg, fingers crossed

I hope you're right Buzz but he was clutching his knee.

There was indeed. Wenger said at the time “we were fortunate”. Well, what goes around, comes around Arsene.

Fingers crossed for Delph. Otamendi’s suspension may well be a problem unless VK can finally regain fitness otherwise. The stability of the defensive unit has been a solid foundation for our success so far. Danilo can do a job at LB of course if required.

The offside was a definite offside but as much as they can blame the officials for calling it wrongly, they should also be having a go at their defenders who all stood still with their arms raised and allowed the pass that led to the goal. Must have forgotten the basics of playing to the whistle.

In real time, Silva looked offside by a distance.
Maybe not......

Yep, very little in it, much the same as the Sané one last year. I don't get the histrionics over it, when it's that tight you just rue your luck and move on.

It looked obvious in real time but it really was marginal and I too don't get what the fuss is about. I still remember the time Walker was offside by two yards at WHL a couple of seasons back in a move which led to Spurs equalising on the stroke of halftime. Don't recall a massive fuss about that decision.

The Arsenal players need to look at themselves - play to the whistle. You learn that in school.

So, AW is facing no sanction for calling Raz a diver.
At least his totally unwarranted outburst puts to bed, once and for all, the prospect of Raz going to the Arse.

The only thing it demonstrates is just how low Wenger’s credibility has sunk - no one is listening. They all looked at the footage and saw it was a penalty (apart from some one-eyed Gooners who thought it was fake news and that footage had been digitally altered).

Shame really - he is on the verge of breaking the record for managing the most matches in the PL but he is increasingly seen as an irrelevance due to his incessant moaning and whinging.

He does seem to have lost the plot and appears rattled. On the one hand you can't help but feel sorry for the old sod but on the other, I hope he stays put because it means they are not moving forward and are, indeed, regressing.
