Could you imagine the uproar if Cesc Fabregas threw the ball at a ref, refused to leave the pitch and finally when deciding to do so, punches the corner flag. It would be like World War 3.
We make excuses for Wayne Rooney. By 'we' I mean English people. Rooney can do it because he is young, English and has an explosive temperament.
Fabregas walked onto the pitch after Arsenal beat Hull City in the FA Cup, dressed like something out of a fashion catalogue and is taken apart. I despair.
I have no doubt that had Fabregas done the same thing as Rooney did it would have been included in the ref's match report. Little innocent 'Wazza' won't be condoned.
If Arsenal do such things, we are 'spoilt little brats' and Arsene Wenger can't control the players. Remember William Gallas last year against Birmingham? Of course you do, he (and Arsenal) were destroyed.
The media will never say Fergie, The King, has lost control over his players because he will simply ban the press and press conferences. Just the same as we won't hear or read endless debates at Rooney's petulance like we did when Fabregas or Gallas were involved in something the press could sink their teeth into.
Stop making excuses. Rooney is not a kid anymore. He is a 23 year old married man for fucks sake! Fabregas doesn't go out shagging 67 year old prostitutes, like Rooney did, yet he is hung, drawn and quartered. Gallas was petulant at Birmingham but didn't we get to know about it!
Its double standards of the highest order!
Keep it Goonerish................
