Wenger Lacks Class
How disgusting were Wenger's comments yesterday? Everybody could see how distressed Shawcross was after breaking Ramsey's leg and the tackle was clearly not malicious. He went in for a 52:48 ball and was a millisecond late in the challenge. His studs weren't up and had the leg not been broken, he would not have seen a red card. I tell you what, Neill's tackle on Cattermole at Wigan last season was ten times worse!
I understand that Wenger was upset and wants to protect his players, but his comments were out of order. Shawcross is a young player himself and does not deserve such spite for an honest but mistimed challenge made in the couldron of a Premiership game. Wenger should take a deep breath and apologise.
