'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Allardyce rejoices in beating Moaner Wenger

Big Sam Allardyce is understandably delighted with yesterdays 2-1 victory over Arsenal and has explained the tactics thsat saw the underdogs topple the Gunners.

Wenger was not best pleased after the final whistle (as usual when he loses as he enters six-year old mode) and made his feelings clear on the Gunners loss - but Big Sam has explained that he has little to complain about.

Infact, Big Sam has explained he has huige respect for Arsene.

Allardyce, said of Wenger to Sky Sports - 'He is entitled to his opinion. Whatever has happened between us in the past, and it has been a little frosty on occasions, I have always respected him as a manager,'

'He is a terrific manager and what he has done for Arsenal is magnificent but we can't play like them so we didn't.

'We set out to spoil them and the spoiling tactics worked.

'They (Arsenal) are one of the big four and when you are beating one of them it is not expected.

'Then it is a bit of emotion after the game that they are upset about something which has not gone their way.

'But I can assure you that most of the time, throughout the season, the 'big boys' get the rub of the green more than the likes of Blackburn Rovers.

'That is not done on purpose by the officials it is just a psychological problem they have because they are human beings and the pressure they get put under turns them that way slightly.

'We all know that and we have to live with that.'

Fair comments where I stand.

Absolutely! A good win, three points, and more importantly if we hold onto 10th place and EXTRA 2.25million in prize money for transfers.

"The fact that Blackburn defended well. They were sharper in the fight than us. In the one-versus-one they were on top of us. I believe as well we were unlucky because there was a penalty on Van Persie in the second half at 1-1. It could have gone both ways, but overall Blackburn was sharper in the duels and in the fights than us. And then it becomes very difficult to win football games. Not really much of a moan from Wenger, he questioned whether the keeper was fouled on both goals. That's worthy of debate and a point every single other manager in the league would have made, not really the whinge you're making it out to be. Once again you've been taken in quite easily by the media's lazy half truths. Anyways, you deserved the win so fair play.

Cheers LD - I didn't think the R.VanP shout was a penalty at all - and Wenger said that his keeper was fouled and needed protection - which he got in abundance for non-existant fouls!
