    The charges laid down by the FA against Arsenal are pathetic. Only Keown and Lauren actually did anything physical, and even that was a big nothing. No wonder the Arse are feeling hard done by.

    These knobheads at the FA are turning the game into a non-contact sport and its getting on my nerves. By all means, charge the Arse, but only when they do something seriously wrong for goodness sake!

    Omg, I actually agree with a Spurs fan for once. It's a miracle I tell you.

    A*senal deserve it, they've been taking the piss for years now. Shocking disciplinary record and I think a line has to be drawn here.

    They're not being docked points, or having Paul Davis style bans. But I think for Keown and Lauren to be banned for about 3 games each at least would be a fair decision.

    It says a lot when a Spurs fan talks about how the FA is shafting Arsenal! Props for your comments.

    But if the FA pull off their latest sham in their on-going campaign against Arsenal, it's bad for the game as a whole. The Gunners shouldn't get off scot free, but I have to ask myself if Fortune doesn't get any mention for his cross body block on Lehman after the penalty was called, I don't see how anyone but possibly Lauren and Keown can be charged with anything.

    I agree. I think Fortune should also have been red carded for his antics (he was already carrying a yellow if I am not mistaken - or should have been from an earlier incident, I can't remember clearly).

    I don't like Spurs, but I respect them and their fans. I have always found them to be straight up folk, unlike ManU supporters.

    Oh *#*#*#*# off. I hate it when people are like, OMG the world is coming to an end, a Man U and a Arsenal supporter agreed on something!!!!! When the Man U supporter lives in Mississippi, and the Arsenal Supporter lives in Nantucket, it really doesn't make a *#*#*#*#ing difference if you agree with each other. You're not their to witness the true rivalry.

    Just make fun of him for living in Jersey.

    Ludahai, Fortune did have an earlier yellow in the 90th min. I never saw a clear replay of what happened, but you could see Fortune charging into Lehmann. It went offscreen, but seemed like Lehmann was knocked down or just pushed off screen.

    As for the FA charges, I can understand why Keown, Parlour and Lauren could be suspended. But why Lehmann? For pushing the linesman's arm away? Well, I guess time will tell.

    It would be so easy for me to say, I was born in Queens smartass, born in Jamaica, I've been there and I've seen it. Which, actually, I was, and lived in Corona for a while. Make fun of me for living in one of the richest towns in the state? Wealth-smack?

    I think The Double has something shoved up his ass as of late.

    I would've capitalized IS instead of IN in that one.

    Hmm.......you're right. Should I give it another shot?

    Seriously though, it's not wealth-smack I was trying to bring. Just a friendly little shot. My dad actually used to own a restaurant out in Englewood Cliffs so I know what I remember about the area.
