You can prove anything with facts

September 8, 2010

Creativity is a great way of getting your message across, especially when the facts may not entirely back up what you are trying to say. As one of the great intellectuals of the world game, Arsene is aware that he sometimes needs to ignore details and focus on the spirit of an idea to help him communicate his ideals. So he was right in principle to say that Ryan Shawcross had ‘kicked’ Heurelho Gomes in the recent league encounter between Stoke and Spurs. While not factually correct, it might have happened, maybe in a different game with different teams and different players and at a different time. And isn’t that all that matters? It’s not lying.
