Jack Wilshere to escape FA punishment for Twitter ran
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere is expected to escape being punished by the Football Association after the midfielder vented his anger at referee Phil Dowd on Twitter following his side’s 4-4 draw with Newcastle.
Arsenal were 4-0 up at half-time but after Abou Diany was sent off Newcastle took full advantage of their extra player to stage a remarkable comeback.
Shortly after the final whistle at St James’ Park, the 19-year-old wrote on his Twitter account: ‘Inconsistent refereeing needs to stop. It’s killing the game. If Diaby goes..what’s the difference between that and Nolan on our keeper!?? #joke’
