Sam Williams struck from the penalty spot in injury time to claim victory for the home side after Youl Mawene was adjudged to have fouled him in the box.

But Mellon was not pleased with the decision. He said: "I think there's not a person in the stadium who thought it was a penalty kick.

"I don't know how he thought it was a penalty because he was that far away from it. I don't think he was close enough to give it."

Mellon insisted that up to that point his side had done enough to win the game. He continued: "We played all the football and made some good chances.

"They were limited to just the long ball forward. To lose in the fashion we did is so disappointing."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

The Bitter Taste Of Arsenal Déjà Vu

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.

he worst performance since Wenger took charge. A spineless, gutless cowardly performance. Wenger and the players should hand their weeks wages to the fans. Useless pathetic amateurs.
