‘He’s a f****** p****!’: Watford captain Troy Deeney slates Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira after sending off – after telling referee Craig Pawson the decision was ‘f****** embarrassing’

Watford captain Troy Deeney fired a swearing-filled rant at referee Craig Pawson, Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira and Gunners manager Unai Emery after being sent off in their Premier League clash.

Deeney was dismissed in the 11th minute on Monday night after catching Torreira with his elbow, seconds after Watford had gone behind in their 1-0 defeat.

The striker was shocked to have been sent off, with the red card given after Pawson was informed by his assistant referee, and he made his displeasure very vocal.

With the game broadcast live on Sky, Deeney was captured by the television asking Pawson ‘what for?’ after being given the red card.

After being told it was the assistant who made the call, Deeney can be seen asking the official ‘how?’, before being told to leave the field again by Pawson.

Deeney tells Pawson the decision is ‘f****** embarrassing’ before walking off. The former Walsall man pulls off his shirt in disgust and flings his captain’s armband towards a team-mate before making his way towards the dugout.

As he leaves the field, he gets involved in a heated discussion with Torreira. Although Deeney’s back is to the camera during his exchange with the Uruguayan, as he turns to leave the striker clearly calls Torreira a ‘f****** p***y’. 

It is an epithet that Deeney repeats to Arsenal manager Emery as he exits the field, before having words with the players and staff in the away dugout. 

Deeney points to his forearm, indicating that he clipped Torreira with that rather than catching him with a deliberate and forceful elbow. 

However Deeney had no choice but to leave the field of play, and was spotted later in the first half in his Watford tracksuit, watching the game from the tunnel.

Arsenal won the game thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal seconds before Deeney’s red card, scored after he charged down Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster as he dallied over a clearance. 

Hornets striker Deeney infamously claimed Arsenal ‘lacked cojones’ last season after Watford beat Arsenal 2-1, adding to the amusement of the away fans when the 30-year-old was given his marching orders.  

Speaking after that win in 2017, Deeney said Watford’s physicality meant they overcame Arsene Wenger’s side to win 2-1 in a Premier League match.

‘There’s a reason why they lost and it wasn’t because of one penalty,’ Deeney said. ‘I’ll have to watch what I say. It’s (having) a bit of cojones, a bit of nuts. Whenever I play Arsenal, I’ll go up and think, “Let me whack the first one and see who wants it”‘.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville suggested referee Pawson was aware of the ill-feeling between Deeney and Arsenal before the match began.

He said: ‘The linesman has got a great view of it. I think 15 years ago, he’s not done a lot wrong. Now, he’s got nowhere to go. 

‘These referees, they’re aware of previous statements and players being fired up for a game. Deeney just oversteps the line.’

Hornets boss Javi Gracia felt Deeney should have been booked: ‘I respect the referee’s decision, but I don’t agree. In my opinion it is a yellow card but never a red. 

‘I can’t explain what the referee saw to make that decision. It was an important one. I prefer to speak about my players who today deserve the recognition. We don’t get points but we had a good performance and we keep playing with the same ambition and desire.’

Selling Aubameyang debate shows something has gone very wrong at Arsenal

Published

There is an argument that now is the right time to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and use the money raised to bring in new players.

Arsenal, it is being argued, can replace Aubameyang within its ranks with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah primed to play in his role in the event he is sold.

What utter nonsense.

Not the proposal, that on the face of it does make sense but the idea that it has to be Aubameyang sold to raise funds that is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion.

When a club is unable to sell its deadwood and instead have to offload its top scorer then you know something has gone badly wrong somewhere.


Selling players to raise funds is normal transfer business, Liverpool sold Coutinho, Tottenham sold Bale, Man Utd sold Ronaldo and so on but each time they were forced to do that in the face of massive offers and the respective players desire to leave.

That is not the case with Aubameyang.

Arsenal has a ton of players that are simply not up to scratch, their names are so common I do not even have to name them but it is the Golden Boot winner that is being mooted to be sold.

Our top-six rivals have no issues selling their fringe players and for the most part, getting a decent transfer fee in return and yet, for some reason, Arsenal struggle to do the same.

If we sell Auba and keep the likes of Mustafi I would be utterly speechless and the sad thing is, I would not be surprised if that actually happens.
