LONDON, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has criticised
the behaviour of his players during Sunday's ill-tempered 0-0 draw at
Manchester United.

"There are no excuses. We were guilty of stupid behaviour," Hill-Wood told
the Sun newspaper on Tuesday. "The players concerned were rather silly when
you would hope they would show more intelligence.

"What makes matters worse is the fact it was senior players who were
involved, experienced professionals who have played more than enough games
to know not to react like that. All I can say in our defence is we are not a
dirty side and nobody was hurt."

England's Football Association said on Monday it would be urgently reviewing
the match report of referee Steve Bennett and video evidence following the
ugly scenes involving Arsenal players at Old Trafford.

The London club look set for disciplinary trouble after the premier league
game turned sour in the wake of a red card for their French captain Patrick
Vieira.

Arsenal defender Martin Keown jumped into United's Dutch striker Ruud van
Nistelrooy, who was also jostled by several Arsenal players at the final
whistle.

Van Nistelrooy, who had just missed a stoppage-time penalty, was a target
after his tangle with Vieira led to the red card -- prompting Arsenal
manager Arsene Wenger to later accuse the Dutchman of cheating.

French newspaper L'Equipe reported on Monday there had also been a heated
exchange between Vieira and van Nistelrooy in the players' tunnel after the
match.

BAH! He's on Sky's Payroll! He's not a REAL Gooner! [/Arsenal fan]

That's what they all said about Alan Smith's comments yesterday.

What's more, this is just window dressing to try to get a more lenient
punishment from the FA - nothing more.

I'm not quite sure how he works this out.  Van Nistelroy didn't ever claim
that he was kicked, he didn't go down, he wasn't clutching parts of himself
in pain.  All that happened was that Vierra lashed out at him with his foot
in retaliation to what was if anything a minor foul, and Van Nistelroy
backed away from it and turned to the ref.  Much as I hate to say it I would
have to agree with Ferguson's viewpoint on the matter. If you don't get sent
off for attempting to deliberately kick an opponent then what on earth do
you get sent off for. The only good thing to come from it was we got to see
two arsehole clubs embarrass themselves.

Cheers
