Proof that Arsenal were robbed twice against Man United

Arsene Wenger was very unhappy with the referee and linesmen after Arsenal’s home defeat to Man United, and with very good reason it seems. The Gunners attacked Man United’s goal without mercy, and at one goal down after 20 minutes, the ball was sent into the box for Lacazette to connect with, and while he stretched for the ball Marcos Rojo impeded him with his hand around the strikers throat…

Now if neither the referee or the linesman could see that then they need to be seriously brought to book. And that wasn’t the only one.

When Danny Welbeck was inside the box again in the 88th minute, he put his right foot on the ball and dragged it back when Darmian rushed in for the challenge. Darmian clearly swept Welbeck’s left foot off the ground, and yet again the referee and linesman didn’t give the penalty…

And here is a close-up of the next second, when Welbeck was knocked on his backside….

So there are two absolutely clear cut reasons why Wenger was right to be aggrieved with the match officials…..



  1. Midkemma says:

    We lost, the loss is painful but we have to hold our heads up high considering it was DDG who put in a superhuman display to the lead for UTD.

    DDG would prob have saved both pens that day the form he was in.

    This shows how much a good GK can influence the squad and while we have had good GK, they become poor with our GK coaching staff, since Bob Wilson left the backroom staff we have underperformed in the GK area.

    Can you lot imagine if Seaman had been in goal when Mustafi held onto the ball? Or Mad Jens? Seaman would have yelled at him until he was a quibbling mess while Mad Jens would have knocked him out. Mistake will not happen again.

    Mustafi would prob have been to scared to make that mistake in the 1st place…

    We need a top GK coach at AFC, we have had some great talented young GK but we need to train them into the best in the world, what UTD done with DDG.

    1. funkyrith says:

      DDG one of his kind in the world, and gone are those days when we attracted THE BEST talent, absolute number one.

  2. Joe says:

    Probably, Webb type of referee, maybe GE is man utd faithful. 3 penalties and wave play on. Its too bad.

  3. summerbreez says:

    I really dont know why it was not given the laca one was so obvious and bad yet nothing was giving
    But the way we lost the game was embarrassing for the defense they could not handle the pressure and ran blank looking for an idea at this level its embarrassing I would have approached the game differently as 2 players in middle is not enough in the bigger games

  4. Arsenogenic says:

    Some losers with selective vision of reality will still call this nothing but an excuse. I know better.

    I thought I was the only one who saw the not given penalties. Now I know better.

    The PGMO bring the game into disrepute, and manage to get away with it all the time.

    1. Kenny Rolfe says:

      The PGMOL’s man is former referee Mike Riley, a ref who once gave Manchester United’s Ruud van Nistelroy 11 penalties in 11 games

      1. Break-on-through says:

        De Gea prob would have just saved them anyway.

    2. Roehahn says:

      Admin forgot..There was another incident in the last 5 mins when Smalling brought down Lacazette but the ref. just gave a corner kick.

  5. Wolfgang says:

    That’s why these decisions will affect Englands chances in the wc.
    The problem is epl English born players may take this tackle as a non
    penalty.So when it happens aginst they will scratch their heads.
    Wenger shd also be blamed for his pattern weaving soccer instead
    of going direct.How many times have you seen 9/10 gunners sniffing in the
    box only to be hit by a swift counter and the gunners fall behind. Soon another goal.
    Adams has rightly said Arsenal will never win another epl as long as the fm stays.
    I agree 1005/

  6. SUKHJOT says:

    Who cam argue that they were not clear penalties??? But now let us just forget about them and focus on bate and then southampton coz there is still a lot to play for this season than just manure…

  7. Segun says:

    That’s what you get when the PGMOL deliberately hand big games involving us to Refs with an agenda. Who can forget it was Andre Marriner who couldn’t tell Kieran Gibbs from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and issued a red card to Gibbs, wrongfully (Chelsea v Arsenal game a couple of seasons ago)? Even more recently, In the game at Stoke, he failed to call a clear hand ball against Kurt Zouma, denying us a potential penalty kick. It is curious that the Assistants on that day are the same named for this game too; one of them got an offside call wrong, which also denied us another potential goal. But for those two men, we may have had a fair shot at a win instead of the L standing against us for that Stoke game.

    Now, tell me how this isn’t about an agenda.

  8. Patrick says:

    It was an upsetting lost but our boys must forget it and move forward, starting with this weekend’s match with Soton. 3 points very much needed to keep in touch with 3rd & 4th spot.

  9. Why should the whole world not be angry with the way Arsenal is being managed? What is Kolc and bfg doing in the first team of a great club like ours? I don’t want to look at the midfield room. With Wenger it will always be this way

  10. Break-on-through says:

    When a tree falls in the forest….

  11. kristoman says:

    should I provide facts why Tottenham was robbed. you numpties get a life.
    we the spud through two offside goals. that is a call in our favour and all of you claiming there were not offside even when replays says otherwise. now we call against us we were robbed. God there are really thickos in this place who do not want to accept reality that these things even themselves out after all

  12. sanmi.marvellous says:

    Even at 2-0 for United, we still had over 20 shots at goal with over 50% of it being on target. What does that imply ?
    It implies that either:
    1).De Gea was extremely good, or
    2). Our attackers are still not prolific enough in front of goal.

    My hunches go with option 2 however.

  13. fenzy says:

    man utd game has been played and lost. no amount of complaints and analysis will add a point to our point. we need to concentrate on Southampton match cos they(Southampton) have a way of playing very well against us and its a difficult place to go.

  14. Adeyemi Royalman says:

    I have said this b4, bad decision mostly go against Arsenal . I don’t kno if something is behind it

  15. Vlad says:

    That’s like putting salt into wounds. Nothing is going to change. So how about we just let it go?
