I read with interest and disappointment that Arsenal player Jack Wilshire is alleged to have stated on Instagram and Twitter that he blames referee Craig Pawson for decisions going against him and his Arsenal team.
This outburst MUST bring a charge against Wilshire for his public rebuke of Craig Pawson.
This claim is frankly outrageous with our RefCam coverage complimenting his performance. To summarise the general view was that Pawson had adopted a low key approach in what was a one sided game. His decision to allow Sergio Aguero’s goal despite claims of a push were correct.
There was no foul, only an Arsenal defender caught out of position.
His claim that a player was offside when Vincent Kompany scored is equally wrong.
So Football Association, if they think anything of their respect campaign, they need to bring charges.
Pawson deserves his medal and it should not be tarnished with claims that he made two big errors when he did not!
Hard to put into words my emotions about yesterday. City are a good team and deserved to win yesterday. Alot of people have had thier say on us and we have to accept cristism when we lose. That being said i can’t accept some of the decisions that went against us yesterday. What ever you say about the first goal, its a foul. The second goal is offside. There should have been a second yellow in the first half. Yes this happens in football but its still hard to accept. And people will say we are looking for excuses but these are facts. Anyway we need to respond, starting on thursday. Thanks to all the gooners for your support and trust me we feel the same but we need to stick together 🔴
