Arsenal super fan Piers Morgan launched into his usual controversial self last night as the Gunners secured a 1-1 draw away at Bayern Munich.
Morgan regularly Tweets during Arsenal games and the thing he took issue with this time was a substitution Arsene Wenger made with Mathieu Flamini being thrown on in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arsenal’s best player last night.
Arsenal were chasing the game at the time and needed two goals which would have allowed them to win the tie on the away goal rule and Morgan questioned the theory in putting on a defensive midfielder.
We need 2 goals with 5ms left, so Wenger pulls off The Ox and brings on Flamini? RIDICULOUS. #AFCvBAY— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 11, 2014
Wenger was in an awkward situation because the Ox had run his socks off all night and was visibly very fatigued towards the latter stages of the second half.
However, by that point Wenger had already used his most attacking players off the bench in Tomas Rosicky and Serge Gnabry, with Flamini the only experience player left to have coming into the game.
Morgan also questioned the strength of Arsenal’s bench, suggesting a lack of strikers restricted Wenger’s options, something Morgan has regularly Tweeted about throughout the season.
I'm not complaining about The Ox coming off, I'm complaining about Flamini coming on. But look at our bench - no strikers anyway. #AFCvBAY— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 11, 2014
Arsenal’s focus now switches to a domestic double.
