It could be either Arsene Wenger or Arsenal Football Club in general that some wise head from the English football authorities is not too keen on, to be honest, or maybe even the fact that they just love Chelsea or Antonio Conte. I am certainly not going to suggest that the multi billionaire Roman Abramovic could have used his wealth and power to gain an unfair advantage because we know that this sort of thing would never be allowed by those in charge of the beautiful game (cough, cough, sorry got a bit of Qatar in my throat).
It is pretty hard, though, to understand the wisdom of the FA in appointing Anthony Taylor as the referee for this season’s FA cup final between the Gunners and the winners, sorry I mean Chelsea. To be fair to Taylor, I do not think he is the worst EPL ref by any stretch of the imagination. I suppose they could have given it to Mike Dean.
The problem with Taylor is his very recent history with our manager, which included some swear words from Wenger (excuse his French) and a bit of pushing thrown into the bargain. Arsenal have not exactly been on the right end of many controversial decisions for years, but you could always put this down to personal error and the natural rose tinted glasses that all fans wear.
Giving the FA cup final to Taylor, however, is like someone needing the antidote to a life threatening poison and giving the cure to the man who just shagged his wife, unlikely to end well for the man in trouble. So do the FA hate Arsenal, or Wenger, or both?
