I must admit that Mick McCarthy had me laughing out loud when he responded to the fact that no Wolves players had been booked by saying something along the lines of, "I know, they went out and played the opposition off the park for 45 minutes with passing football. What did they think they were doing? That's not what I tell them to do!" It was the perfect riposte to Danny Murphy.
And meanwhile, Wenger, through gritted teeth, had to admit that Wilshire deserved to be sent off after a terrible and potential leg breaking challenge. Am I alone in seeing similarities between that challenge and the ones that broke Eduardo's and Ramsey's legs? Wenger conceded that it was a red card challenge, but I didn't hear him giving Wilshire the same abuse as he directed at Taylor and Shawcross.
At the time of the Ramsey break, I pointed to the hypocrisy of Wenger. Now, let's hear how Wilshire should be suspended for three months or banned from the game for life. We don't want these sorts of challenges in football do we Arsene? Meanwhile, Mr Murphy might like to add Wenger to his rogue's gallery of McCarthy, Allardyce and Pulis! He really shouldn't fire his players up so much, should he Danny?
And back to McCarthy. What game was he watching when he called the foul on Obinna a "soft penalty"? It was a nailed on penalty in my book, and Shearer, Lineker and Hansen all concurred. Perhaps McCarthy and Wenger have more in common than any of us realised. They certainly both need to go to Specsavers!
