Reports: Interpol investigating Arsenal's draw with Newcastle

French news wire Foot365 are suggesting that Arsenal’s 4-4 draw with Newcastle is under investigation from Interpol, after ‘suspicious money transfers’ took place during Saturday’s astonishing game.

Arsenal scored four goals in 26 minutes at St James’ Park before a second half comeback from Alan Pardew’s side left many Gooners wondering how losing a four goal lead could be possible.

“The crazy game between Newcastle and Arsenal on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League (4-4) has not finished talking. Today, it would even turn Interpol, to look closely at this meeting that saw the Magpies to join the Gunners, who led 4-0 after 26 minutes though gambling”

“Strong prevailing climate of suspicion around the game, which would have been on the sidelines of sports content with strange movements of money. Tomas Rosicky, the Czech midfielder for Arsenal came late in the game and led to two goals for Newcastle, would be included in the viewfinder of Interpol,” Foot365’s article states.

Arsenal’s press office declined to comment when questioned about the reports. A statement is expected to be released by the club tomorrow morning.

Update: Le Parisien journalist Julien Laurens says there are “no investigations” concerning the Newcastle v Arsenal match.

It has to be nonsense. The guy was on the bench with no form of mobile communication and probably wouldn’t have come on at all if we hadn’t been down to 10 men for as long as we were. So called “suspicious” betting patterns are inevitable given the explosion of “bet in play” markets. How many NUFC fans, for instance, would have put a bet on 4-4 when they made it 1-4 against 10 men – I’d have been inclined to.

Something to think about i spotted Rosicky played best onside for his goal that was disallowed for offside. He pushed williamson for one of newcastles penalties and gave away the freekick that led to cheick tiote’s amazing volley, could be sheer coincidence i do not know. HWTL Tiote Screamerrrrrr 😀

I was sat in the Newcastle end with some friends up here and I told them to put a 4-4 on at half time, knowing that the crowd would get up and the ref was horrendous. I surely must get investigated too…

I wouldn’t actually be suprised when Rosicky missed a penalty against Sunderland after the match him and Phil Dowd were smiling like they won the lottery.

I thought Dowd had a reasonable game.

If anything, he made sure we got a point by ruling out Best’s earlier effort, wrongly.

Good point. We’re still well on course for the top four, let’s not panic.

Rosicky doesnt have hands in this according to fresh reports ,, They say it might be a mistranslation for Interpol investigating referee Phil Dowd regarding Rosicky’s incidents ,, That doesnt mean Interpol are investigating Rosicky ,, but the bad decisions by referee in which Rosicky’s slight touch was given foul and a penalty ,, Keep up the hope tht allegations on Rosicky isnt true

AStoneGooner

hahahaha Dowd yes, Rosicky no no no, He didnt touch Barton to give away the foul, watch it, Barton goes down as soon as he felt Rosicky and Dowd didnt even need to think about it, the penalty, WASNT A penalty, Rosicky didnt touch the fella but the penalty was given anyway without question, every pundit has commented that it was never a penalty!!!

Phil Dowd is continuously bad against Arsenal and I wouldnt be surprised at all if theres fixing going on with referees, too many obviously bad decisions!

Rosicky can get out from the club whether he investigates by Interpol or not. His best carrier is already past.

Yes this is indeed interesting because Phil Dowd gave two non-existent penaltys for Newcastle. That one supposedly made by Rosicky was very unfair. But I don’t think the czech has anything to do with that. I just can’t understand why the english referees [one of the best in the world] are making so many mistakes lately, one after another. Well but apart from that draw, we are still in title race, so let’s move on and hope for no dropping points and a better referee next time.

Sorry, Balkrishna, but who is the “they” you refer to, and what, exactly are “they” claiming happened, and where can one find a single credible report of this “news”? I can’t find it on a single credible news source, just in blog rumours.

Sorry but this sounds like some fool pulled a made up story out of their backside and a bunch of other fools are intent on repeating it and making their foolishness apparent.

If the Rosicky part is true, Arsenal should be docked points. If the Dowd part is true, the result should be wiped out and neither team get points for yesterday.

Why on earth would be docked points for having the match fixed against us? *pulls spastic face*

To take the points away from both teams because of individual corruption? How can either club be blamed for a bent ref or a corrupt player? A replay would be more appropriate.

I don’t know why I’m arguing though because this is all clearly bollocks. Lets not soil Rosicky’s name prematurely.

I think Dowd should be investigated to see if his actions are financially motivated or to see if he has a pattern of mainly penalising players. He seems like his actions could be racially motivated.

Any way enough is enough the EPL is getting more like WWF wrestling. Its begining to be a turn off.

Why should Arsenal be docked points for the ineptitude of Dowd for handing Newcastle a lifeline through inconsistent decisions in favor of of their team and Rosicky (if found guilty) for trying to gift Newcastle goals?

In what way did the result benefit Arsenal? Lay off the drugs mate.

Too many coincidences for the past years. The refs cant be that bad, its must be something fishy.

Investigate all the bastards. Check their bank accounts. Replay the match and give us free tickets this time.

And, oh yes…if found guilty, dont give them just fines, send the bastards to jail. Investigate Barton also….he looks too much like an angel in front of the cameras…something is not clear.

The bookies want Manure to win, that why they get all the calls… haha, this is interesting!!!!

What a result, got 1000-1 at halftime on Paddy Power on Newcastle coming back to 4-4 so stuck £3 on it, never thought it would come in, also done £3 on Arsenal to win 7-0 at 26-1. Fantastic result and an UNBELIEVABLE payout of £3k!!!! Made my f*****g weekend!! Love Phil Dowd, love Joey Barton, love Tiote and gotta love Diaby, £3000 from a £3 bet!!!!  Definate two penalties, Kos blatently tripped him for the first and Rosicky 100% PUSHED the player when he was in mid air so right decisions there, Joey could have been sent off but… Read more »

5 reasons why Arsenal drew 4-4 with Newcastle :

1. Phil Dowd needed to be f#*cked in his ass.

2. Newcastle should have been playing with 9 men just like us. (Rosicky was not playing football..)

3. Sir Alex told Pardew to get Djourou injured..

4. All Wenger needed was 1 f?!cking Centre Back!!! What a way to learn!

5. Arsenal cannot defend a 10 goal lead. (But isn’t that one obvious?)

Wooo hooo, good on you mate, really pleased for you. What’s thats, half a years salary for you monkeys up north?
Down here some of us earn that in a week.
Oh and we’ve closed the gap to 4 points. Enjoy the championship, you see it was still only worth a point to you and boy do you need points.

Having lived in England all these years, I have personally experienced instituionalised racism and corruption in this country. Our FA and match officials are not immune to it. Yesterday we saw the actions of a corrupt and incompetent referee who punished the foreigners. FA is supposed to monitor the referee’s performance on a regular basis but we dont see any improvements. The media is no less racist- both the Goals on Sunday and MOTD2 refused to discuss thug Barton’s onslaught or show the 2 dubious penalties in slow motion. These were the game changing decisions. The moron on Goals on… Read more »

phil dowd is involved, with money from this game. he is getting kicked out because he is not upto it, so he took a backhander.

did anyone realise that as soon as the geodies scum scored the 4th goal, they stopped attacking.i can only wonder why.maybe,just maybe thats what they had their money on.everytime they went foward,they looked liked they were going to score,so why did they not try to win the game.

It aint going to surprise me . According to reports.the linesman flagged for a push by a gunner. Tv replays showed there was no push.This adds gist to the sub plot. In all honesty you can’t blame Diaby. He had been injured previously by such tackles.So he lost his head. As for the ref,enough has been said. How the red faced can win title year after year aint surprising. He must have been helped by the mo. There are many instances of this ie, in the MC game another 2 min was added to the aet,Then Owen scored the winner.… Read more »

how about this…. basterd Dowd was paying Cesc. & Arsenal for the mess from last week… if cesc really told the linesman he was on the take , all this makes perfect sense….. pay back…. thank you david moyes ! Wanker…. the whole thing stinks to high heaven….. Arsenal.should still have been able to come away with three points….. up the GUNS of ARSENAL!!!

The game was fixed. There’s no doubt in my mind. The referee just wanted them to get something from the game – you could see it in his face, he was loving it as the ‘goals’ went in. Same as Wigan and Spurs defeats – it can’t be a coincidence. The facts say it all – the first time a 4-0 lead has been blown in the EPL, and it’s Arsenal that do it? It’s ridiculous – there’s no way that could happen, think of all the worse teams than us and it happens to us and not them? This… Read more »

Got to love to love all you guys saying the ref was biased against Arsenal. I guess you haven’t been paying attention to the persistent persecution of teams like NUFC and Wolves.

Surely this isn’t true!? Was a very silly foul though by Rosicky.

I Am In total agreedment with the comments on your site regarding the media bias directed aganst Aresnal players, the referee,s are just reflecting the anti Foreigner attidue displayed by various Media outlets IE BBC M>T>D radio 5 live & Talksport. Why have the FA not announced an investigation Into Pli Downd’s last 3 games With Aresnal, are they afraid? I think they are. How can we begin a campaign to Get some action taken against these Terrible Referee’s who are bring Our Great Game Into Disrepute HELP HELP SAVE OUR GAME
