Ed: This is a rant by a commenter on this site which I think expresses well the sentiments and comments of a lot fans, inclusive of those who are not necessarily from these shores. See what you think about it.
The media reaction on the Eduardo story has been a farce and it is sheer jealousy that drives them.
Wenger is one of the top three managers in Europe and all English managers are shite.
Arsenal play a brand of football England couldn't even achieve on the PS3.
Wenger has knocked back the England job so many times.
Eduardo embarrassed England and knocked them out of the Euros.
Nothing but jealousy I say.
Had it been Rooney we'd never hear the end of it. With an ethos like this no wonder England's national side is the biggest joke in world football.
The way Taylor has been made the victim is just more proof that virtually every member of the British press is just a racist xenophobic idiot with an agenda. It is sad and pathetic.
No wonder England players keep getting sent off in international tournaments. I also love the way they try to make out all the red cards under AW make Arsenal a dirty side. Ha ha says the national team with John Terry as captain and Gary Neville at right-back.
Arsenal play some of the best football n Europe and have the 2nd best disciplinary record in the league over the past 5 years. FACT. But since when did facts matter to the media idiots?
Don't get angered by the media. Just kick back, relax and laugh at them as the national team exit and get humiliated in yet another penalty shoot-out.
Laugh at all the sad xenophobe fans who paint their faces and reckon they'll win every game 3-0 and end up getting embarrassed.
Laugh at a team that has won NOTHING in over 40 years. Laugh at a media that told the world it had a 'Golden generation' for the 2006 World Cup. Laugh at Steve McClaren.
And then compare and contrast with all the wonderful players Arsene Wenger has produced, the Invincibles, the two doubles, the FA Cups, the Champions league final, the players nominated for World and European player awards.
And also laugh at the Spuds not winning a league title in over 47 years!
It's good to be a Gooner. It’s miserable to be a jealous bitter England fan.
This country loves underdog losers like Taylor and Birmingham. There is a general mistrust of winners, which is why Gallas gets so much stick for showing how much he cares but, when Terry pisses in a nightclub or fights with his manager it is 'PASSION'.
Ha ha ha.
The more bile they spew the more I love it. It just shows how desperate they are. Imagine that. The fate of a country of 50 million people apparently, lies within the hands of one Frenchman. Can you believe that?
I love the way Arsene is single-handedly responsible for the demise of Engish football. Question: who was to blame for the 30 years before that?!
Here's another poser...Do you reckon that if Arsenal were as rubbish as say...Birmingham or Derby or if they were mid-table like the Spuds and not won a thing of note in 10 years. Do you reckon the media would be so obsessed with Wenger and Arsenal and trying to slam them at every chance?
So why the obsession with Arsene's Arsenal then? Why not pick on Allardyce who bought foreigners all the time at Bolton and Newcastle?
Or why not rant at McTwat at Birmingham for signing McFadden and playing with a team of mostly foreigners?
Why not have a go at Ferguson for not developing any English players at all (in the last 10 years) and only spending stupid cash (that not everyone can afford) on Rooney, Rio and Hargreaves?
In Fergie's case it is because the media are pussies and don't want to upset all the glory-hunting Mancs around the world. In the case of everyone else? Because they are shit.
And it is a compliment to Wenger this poisonous jealous envy. His team play sumptuous football and only serves to highlight the gulf in class between foreign players and English ones. How they must hate it...
And why do people keep going on about that Gallas kick at Nani? Is Nani and ManYoo such a bunch of big pussies that they think that was horrible? Does anybody remember Roy Keane? Right then.
That gallas 'kick' wouldn’t have knocked out a 7 year-old. Although that poor little Nani must have a graze somewhere I am sure...
And finally, funny how this FA Cup win for ManYoo seems to make them so excited. Did Arsenal care? Nope. Are Arsenal 3 points clear of ManYoo despite Mancs spending £50 million more on players?
For Eduardo read Rooney but don’t read the Daily Mail or listen to the BBC
