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.
