Let's start with a man who has a clear anti-Arsenal agenda, Stewart Robson.

Lee Dixon was paired with Arlo White on NBC's coverage of Everton versus Arsenal on Saturday. So far, in their first year and two weeks of Premier League coverage, all of the commentators have done well. But on Saturday, Dixon was a disgrace.

It has long been a favorite tactic of managers to blame the referee after their team loses the game.
