I know that I am a one for banging on about the referees and the way their bad decisions often seem to go against Arsenal. With all our injury problems and the way we always seem to get a tough draw in cup competitions, it just seems to add to the the struggle that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have to go through.
Of course I am biased towards Arsenal, it comes with the territory, but I do try to see things from all points of view and I know that i have a tendency to ignore the things that go in our favour, like the terrible offsuide decision against Berahino when we played against West Brom the other day.
Bit here goes my latest theory and as I see it, more proof that if Wenger fell into a swimming pool full of nipples he would come up sucking his thumb:
Not only is it incredible that for two seasons in a row the Gunners have finished second in the Champions League group to Dortmund, but we also have the same points just like last year, and the top spot was decided on the final day with nothing we could do about it.
Last season it was a bizarre last minute flap from the Marseille keeper that handed the German’s top spot. This year Anderlecht had a nailed on penalty claim turned down when it was 0-0. Have a look at the highlights if you don’t believe me.
On its own this would not be too bad. These things happen after all, but when you consider that the draw at home to Anderlecht was a huge factor in Arsenal not winning the group and then you look back and see how blatantly offside their first goal was in that game, you have to wonder whether there is someone up there who does not like us.
Or do you think that one year Arsenal will suddenly become the luckiest team in the world and get every decision in our favour?
