Dunny Hits Back At Moaning Wenger

Dunny Hits Back At Moaning Wenger

David Dunn has told Arsene Wenger to stop moaning about Blackburn's physical approach, following Arsene Wenger's comments after his side drew 1-1 in a feisty encounter at Ewood Park.

Sunday's 1-1 draw between the two clubs was a typically robust affair in Lancashire, with Blackburn's players certainly not holding back in taking on their capital counterparts.

But while Arsene has complained that Rovers over stepped the mark using over the top phrases like 'violent', Dunn believes they are simply a team displaying commitment that plays well within the rules of the game.

Wenger has been openly critical of Blackburn ever since a fractious FA Cup semi-final between the two sides in 2005 and Dunn feels it is about time the Frenchman learned to hold his tongue.

'I disagree totally with what he said,' Dunn told the Daily Mirror.

'Committed, yes, aggressive, yes, but they have better players than us with more ability going through the team so we have to close that gap and make it into a little bit of a battle.

'It's getting a little bit funny because every time we play Arsenal, they're the ones who say we're violent. But we're not, we're committed and that's what you would expect from any team.

'It always seems to be the Arsenal camp who come out with that kind of comment. I wouldn't be so sure Alex Ferguson would say that and he would expect that from his team as well.'

I have one thing to say about this regardless of who it upsets...

WELL SAID.

I know there is always 2 sides to every story before the Gunners come on here moaning. We've heard plenty of your side so its only fair we defend ourselves.

Who is it thats carrying it on?? Blackburn players & fans. Wenger made his comments after the game on sunday, Fat boy Dunn is making his on tuesday. Hughes already defended the club so the only people that need to shut up are those connected to Blackburn. I also remember Hughes making remarks about another team last season when he thought they kicked Blackburn players & one ended up injured. Amazes me how that bloke thinks its ok to go out to cause injury, but when the favours returned your club cry about it. As for the likes of Ferguson not saying anything, well you must be joking. Benitez, Mourinho, Ferguson & Wenger have all complained about Rovers tactics in the past two years & there are many others besides such eg Roeder!!

What more do you expect? Hughes was a dirty, dirty player so its only obvious the team he managers will be dirty too. One thing that always stood out about hughes as a player was his tendencies to hold his face when he went to ground, even if someone stood on his foot. I noticed 3 bolton players...urm sorry, blackburn players do the same in the game against arsenal this past weekend. Well you can be as "commited" as you want but thats not going to stop the FA from fining you 100 000 for being the dirtiest team in the league. Besides, im glad it was dummy for coming out and saying something so that at least it was a blackburn player justifying wengers comments.
