Davies fumes at soft Gunners
12 Jan 2009 - 08:16:44
Bolton Wanderers striker Kevin Davies has slammed Arsenal's players for their conduct in the 1-0 win over the Trotters at the Emirates Stadium.
Davies felt that some of the Gunners side were trying to get him and his colleagues in trouble with the match officials, with Kolo Toure coming in for specific criticism.
Davies said: "Sometimes it feels like they are trying to earn you a booking, which is bit disappointing, and in some of the challenges I felt that I won the ball.
"A few of them let out a big scream, which is a bit embarrassing really because it is a man's game.
"Kolo Toure did one and he is big, strong man. He was screaming 'my leg' which is a bit unnecessary, but they get the free-kicks.
"In my eyes that is cheating the referee, they have conned him, but they are good at that and you just have to get on with the game."
