QPR boss accuses Arsenal captain of cheating

I can understand the fact that Mark Hughes is not happy after his QPR side lost to Arsenal at the Emirates yesterday, but the Welshman needs to engage his brain before opening his mouth. QPR are still without a Premier League win this season and are rooted to the bottom of the league, but Hughes blames yesterday’s defeat on Thomas Vermaelen and the referee.

Arsenal were far from fantastic yesterday, but they were still the team making the chances and should have scored before Mbia got himself sent off. Cazorla will still be wondering how he missed from the middle of the box after Walcott’s cross.

Mbia saw a red card a few minutes later for kicking out at Vermaelen, despite having been awarded a free kick, but Sparky thinks it was unfair.

“We’re disappointed because the linesman had already given the foul to us.

“Stefan has taken a swing but there was no contact, but Vermaelen has made a meal of it and the referee warranted that it was a straight red.”

Maybe Hughes spent too much time with Joey Barton last season, but he seems to think you can attack people as long as you have been awarded a free kick or you fail to cause them real damage. QPR were lucky not to have Granero sent off earlier, and should accept the fact that they did not do enough.

Hughes is labouring under the delusion that his team were on the verge of winning the match when Mbia lashed out. He does have a point when he says that Arteta was offside, but these things happen. We got a bit of good luck but we have had plenty of bad.

    COYG we must support CFC today because they will be inconsistent in future but if ManUtd win today they might not give up topspot too easily

    I accuse Mark Hughes of instructing his players especially Granero to injure Wilshere.

    Hughes is a useless manager and he track record proves it.
    Our goal was offside but that should be his only complaint because Granero should have seen red simply for the amount of bad fouls he made.

    I’m a gooner from Malaysia, and the owner of QPR is from my country, of course I hope they win a match (but not against arsenal), but it hurt me when he hired a manager like hughes, cant he sees what have hughes done at Man City? Sometimes its funny when the owner of football club know nothing about football, is they thought football stands for ‘american football’? This is LONDON, not WASHINGTON!

    9 red cards in 2012 alone says different sparky. Typical Hughes really, blames everyone else for HIS teams lack of discipline and bad run of results when in reality QPR’s standing in the league, much like last season, is of their own doing, knowone elses.

    So now we are the only ones to play act during a foul? I’m sure their players are good at it too! Fools, no wonder they are at the bottom off the table, keep dreaming.

    Sparky is a complete and utter tw*t he needs to discipline his players because Granero could’ve easily got a red for his 5 fouls 3 of them were bookable as well. Good win for the team we didn’t play the best we could’ve played but a scrappy win every now and then shouldn’t be too bad.

    WUNDERBAR…..The arsenal game came back alive after losing out 4-0 against Reading.The players played all out to beat Reading 7-5 which it never happened in English football. As an arsenal fan from Malaysia,Charmakh and Arshavin have improved their game tremendously, I feel that that they can still help Arsenal in many ways looking at the last game they played. Keep it as a booster before meeting MU this Saturday.
