    I mentioned in another thread that Fabianski's distribution has been fantastic and he proved it today once again. Perfect throw out to Rosicky to start the counter which lead to Chamakh's goal. I'm really glad he played well after his mistake against Newcastle.

    It was exactly like this :)

    "OMG, Cesc can apologize as much as he wants but that was a TERRIBLE tackle" and no mention of Karl tackle.

    I am absolutely disgusted by some media, claiming that Fabregas is a horrible tackling player, well it look unlucky and a leg breaking tackle but they did not show that **** henry tackle.

    It was a bad. tackle. Never a leg breaker. You get a tackle that bad every Saturday in the league.

    British football media is full of people of little intelligence who like to comment on such non events.

    Karl Henry's on Arshavin was worse. No mention of it on MOTD though.

    Theres a video of it online. Poor quality but you can see how bad it was.

    Not the greatest picture, but you can see how high his foot was:

    Cesc's was pretty nasty but Henry's was far worse. If Arshavin's leg was planted there he could have done serious damage. Cesc's was more of a rake - still could have seen red on another day but I think a yellow was fair enough.

    Was Henry even booked?

    I f**king hate him and his smug face.

    And then Henry had a chance to equalise and I think he got a nick on Djourou's goalbound shot to divert it wide.

    Here's another picture of the tackle:

    Edit: Found a GIF of it. (Mods, remove it if it's not allowed)

    It was a late tackle no doubt but in fairness to Henry it looks like he doesn't really go through Arshavin in a manner he may have done before all of the negative publicity he has so rightly garnered this season.

    Agreed, it was a straight red, but there wasn't alot of force in the challenge. It's the amount of force that is applied which I think is the major issue with reckless tackling. Henry also seems to be retracting his foot once it makes contact. But if he had flown into the challenge with all his might, like Parker on Denilson(?) a few weeks back, then Arshavin would have been finished.

    It only happens, because we have a false reputation about tackling, and they think it's news when we make bad tackles, while it's boring that we are being tackled again.

    If Wenger didn't talk too much about tackling, people wouldn't be so bored of it and they wouldn't be biased against us.

    What's annoying is that Wenger always tells that he likes tough but fair football, and the clueless stupid media turns it out like he wanted a non-contact sport. FFS, one of the dirtiest job is making news out of nothing, and twisting words for it.

    Nah, it's not retracting, merely Arshavin's shin pad exerting an equivalent amount of force because an external force is being applied to it. The shin pad is at "rest" (Arshavin has stopped moving his right leg, although it isn't planted on the ground yet at the time of contact) and therefore inertia applies. The force exerted by Henry's boot elicits a reaction of a certain amount of force in the opposite direction to the boot, wherein this amount is relative to the mass of the pad, and because of its location, to the sock and leg as well.

    Judging from those pictures Shava was very lucky that his foot wasn't planted too firmly - that was a horrible tackle.

    Arshavin's face showed that he was appalled by the tackle. Straight after though, Arshavin was coming towards the middle to get the ball and run at defenders and shoot. He had 2 or 3 shots in quick succession and hit the post!

    Coincidence? Or is that what the Russian can consistently do if he is motivated?
