Video: Penalty shout for Arsenal as Balogun kicked well inside the box

Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun was kicked inside the box after being dispossessed of the ball inside the box, but the incident appeared to just be waved off without consideration.

Moments ago we fell behind thanks to Sergi Canos effort, and our boys tried to force our way up the other end to earn a quick response, but all has not gone to plan.

Balogun ran into the box, only to take a heavy touch and lose a grip on possession, but you have to say that the challenge on our young striker could definitely have been avoided, and this surely deserved a closer look from VAR at the very worst.

Is Balogun at blame for this? Should the officials have given this a closer look?

    With Mike Arteta, Xhaka, Mari, Chamberlain in the team we in trouble this season and we going nowhere

  3. Armoury says:

    Are we gonna blame Kronke or VAR again? Arteta is the main problem at Arsenal. He’s got little knowledge of managing the game.

      Same old Arsenal: forever passing .This leaves acrez of space remnicent of Wengers
      time.
      When Brentford scored,thetd was only one defender.Why didnt the others raced to block him like what bees when any gunner was going to shoot.
      Arteta has z lot on his plate.

    Am waiting for the guys who used to back him over the players he chased. This midfield has never supported the attacking forwards at any time under Arteta, You chase Matteo G, en u bring in Locargo.

  5. Christopher Loum says:

    Arteta planing to take Arsenal to relegation

  6. Nivo says:

    We sell Guendouzi for 10mil just to bring in Lokonga for 20mil? Keeping Xhaka and Elneny? Not bringing any good RB? Not replacing Leno who clearly is past his best? Selling Willock who just broke PL record for scoring while no other midfielder can score a goal to save his own life? Still having Willian, Kolasinac, Torriera on our wage bill? In what world does all that make sense???

    Time for a sharp exit Mr Arteta.
    How low do we have to go before his shortcomings are realised? He has bought some good players but has lost the dressing room. A new manager can take us forward. His cup winning team were the highpoint of his arsenal career and he has sold or sidelined his soldiers (Martinez, AMN, etc). Thank goodness Ramsdale was not bought. The goalkeeping scout should be sacked immediately. Adios amigo
