I accept that Arsenal were not very good against Liverpool on Monday, especially in the first half when it looked like all 10 outfield players had just been woken up in the Arsenal version of the film The Hangover and nobody really knew what was going on.
So the absolute ripping we got at halftime from the Sky Sports boys was justified. But after the Gunners had put in a much better second 45 minutes, when we were the better side and probably should have won the game, I expected a bit more from the TV pundits.
However, it was if the second half had not happened and they just kept laying into us, which I personally found a bit harsh. They hardly did any analysis of the second half, as if they had seen enough and made their minds up at the break.
Then you had Gary Neville tearing into Wenger for what he called arrogance or naivety but Thierry Henry argued was belief in his players. We have all criticised the prof but we also accept that he does have strong belief in his players and they love him for it. That is probably why we have punched above our weight for years, so who is Neville to deny that?
Then you have Carragher going on about how Liverpool look like title challengers while we are some king of no hopers. Well for me that is plainly unfair and incorrect. Don´t forget that the scousers only won their first, dismal, game against Stoke with a Coutinho wonder strike. You could say that a moment of magic won it and that is why you have players like that in the team but then you could say the same for Cazorla´s pass and Ramsey´sd finish on Monday. We might not have deserved the win but we did produce that one moment of magic.
So how about a bit less bias against Arsenal from the TV pundits? Yeah right…
