Does the football media in England have a slightly anti-Arsenal slant? Well maybe that is putting it a bit too strongly, but there are certainly more than a few pundits and journalists who are only too willing to jump on the bandwagon and add their voices to the criticism of the Gunners when something goes wrong.
I bet they were all sharpening their pencils (and knives) yesterday when Arsenal were trailing a very defensively strong Swansea City at the Emirates with less than half of the game to go. However, after the Gunners did in seven minutes what Tottenham, West Ham, Reading, MK Dons, Crystal Palace and Southampton collectively took six games to do by scoring two goals against them away from the Liberty Stadium, the silence has been deafening.
When Watford came back from a goal down to beat Arsenal it was the best thing since sliced bread and the talk of all the papers, who relished the derogatory and disrespectful comments from their striker after the match, but when we do the same and without the help of a dodgy penalty by the referee, where is the acclaim?
Yet we have Gary Neville on Sky Sports praising the resilience of his former club Man United after they beat Tottenham, who were lacklustre without Harry Kane and gifted United the only goal with some calamitous defending.
If any Premier League side showed resilience yesterday it was surely Arsenal was it not? Now tell me the football media is not biased against us.
