Mike Dean cheated Arsenal out of three points against West Brom by awarding the kind of penalty he knew would make him the centre of attention – which is his favourite thing. Far more than doing a good job.
However, the Gunners were below par against the Premier League’s worst team, and that’s what we can control, not egomaniacal shitbox referees, as annoyingly rubbish as they are.
Here’s how the players rated today in the 1-1 draw.
Bonus rating: Happy New Year/10 to all Arsenal fans, but Shit New Year to Mike Dean who, I hope, steps on an upturned plug every morning for the rest of his poxy life.
