So Ryan Shawcross doesn't have a bad bone in his body eh? Well, he might not but courtesy of his 'hard, but fair' tackle Aaron Ramsey certainly does.
I'm still fucking seething and it gets worse whenever I hear twats like Rory Delap and Tony Pulis defending the inbreed cock that is Ryan Shawcross.
People are going on about the boys tears. Well, he is only crying because he got caught. Did anyone else notice that he only started the tears when he was shown the red card?
Those tears were not for Aaron Ramsey, they were for himself.
It wouldn't surprise me if he knew he was was on the verge of an England call-up and then thought that he had blown it with that assault.
Luckily for him, it didn't matter.
That bastard has smashed three players legs in his career. That is a disgrace. He is only 22 years old. He could have another 15 years in front of him so how many more careers is he going to threaten?
What amazes me is people like Rory Delap defending him. I understand he is a team-mate but why not speak the truth? Why can't Delap just say that it was a horror tackle? Just admit it!
The tackle was not warranted. It was near the half-way line. Is there any need to launch yourself into a challenge like that? But that's Shawcross all over isn't it? Fuck me, the mug tackled Adebayor off the pitch last season!
The likes of the Match Of The Day and TalkSport pundits wind me up even more. They are disgraceful. Quick to defend what Shawcross did but never to condemn it.
Martin Samuel goes against the grain and writes quite a decent article. My only gripe is that in my opinion Shawcross tackled with intent. Why else go in that hard?
If Ryan Shawcross is such a nice guy where is his public apoligy? If I was a professional footballer and I had just broke someone's leg on a football pitch I would want to say sorry; Regardless of whether it was an accident or worse.
People are quick to make excuses for tackles like this. It bugs me something cronic. Jamie Redknapp is at it too. I even read somewhere that Ramsey was just too quick for Shawcross!
Incredible! Lets shift the blame of a disgusting tackle onto the victim. Then again that makes sense in this country.
Through this tackle English football has been dragged back to the dark ages again. The likes of Tony Pulis are the dinosaurs of the game and I couldn't care less if they became extinct.
I have no doubt that he told his players before the game to rough Arsenal up. With instructions like this in his ear it is little wonder that Ryan Shawcross has smashed three ankles in his short career as a footballer.
All week leading to Arsenal-Stoke City games you read and hear interviews from Stoke about how they are going to rough Arsenal up. So well done, you roughed us up and in doing so broke a 19 year olds leg.
Even after Pulis has had a dig at Wenger. Yes, the Stoke manager is defending his own but he has to take some responsibility. Admit it, it was a bad tackle. None of this 'he hasn't got a bad bone in his body' shit.
The press went ballistic when, against Bolton, William Gallas made a bad challenge. Gallas didn't break a leg but he may as well have killed a man going by the reaction.
And you know something? Wenger apoligised for that tackle. That is a proper man. Pulis isn't worth the dogshit that Arsene trod on.
Keep it Goonerish..............
