And the weird thing is Arsenal finished top of the Fair play league 3 or 4 time under Wenger.

Now work that one out?

I`ll challenge you to find evidence for that.

Well I`ll be nice and tell you that you can save yourselves the trouble, I checked all the seasons since the Premier League was invented and it has never happened.  :wave

But they actually once finished in 3rd place.  :o

Look at Dein's smug face in that pic. I wonder how many of his mates he tugged off under the FA boardroom table to wangle that.

Viera's comments are fucking hilarious, if he said that with a straight face then a career in Hollywood surely beckons when he hangs up his boots.

Besides what about the other 7 years when they've been complete and utter c*nts? Not to mention the amount of shite that they've got away with, no doubt thanks to Dein's greasy influence.

Incidentally just looking at that last one, it's a load of bollocks. Arsenal's points tally for red and yellow cards is one of the highest.

After looking at the last link you sent, I see that its not only yellow and red cards that decides who gets these awards, but things as

Positive play
Respect toward opponents
Respect towards referee
Behaviour of officials.

No wonder the Gooners can win with such a system, who the fuck decides these things, D.Dein himself.  :lmao

He is very overrated, not the most overrated in the league, but he is definitely overrated. Most often by Arsenal fans, strangely. I wouldn't say he is as overrated as Rosicky, but he is well on his way.

Top ten thugs in the PL history:
1. Everton 573 1017
2. Chelsea 572 965
3. Arsenal 571 947
4. Blackburn 497 880
5. Tottenham 573 871
6. West Ham 455 826
7. Leeds 468 826
8. Middlesbrough 451 801
9. Aston Villa 572 797
10. Man Utd 573 796
------
11. Newcastle 531 792
12. Southampton 506 778
13. Liverpool 573 736
14. Man City 381 584
15. Bolton 295 537

So what we see here is that Liverpool by far is the team with less bookings in the Premier League history apart from teams that have spent several seasons in the Championship, and you USGooner should know when to keep your mouth shut looking at your company at the top in the same list.  :wave

An attacking midfielder with no goals to his name in the league. Amazing that. Master of the 5 yard pass.. unless, y'know, that pass happens to be infront of the oppsotions open goal.

Both of his goals this season came against Zagreb for fuck sakes. That's atrocious!
