Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is tired of talking about his team's 2-0 loss to Manchester United eight days ago. However, Reds counterpart Alex Ferguson won't let the subject go. Ferguson wants Gunners forwards Thierry Henry and Denis Bergkamp punished for foul play during the game, especially since his own striker, Ruud van Nistelrooy, is serving a three-game ban for a knee-high tackle on Ashley Cole. United ended Arsenal's unbeaten league record of 49 games in a contentious game at Old Trafford on October 24. Foul play Players and officials scuffled in the stadium tunnel after the final whistle. Ferguson, who had food and soup thrown over his suit, is angry that the referee took no action against Henry and Bergkamp for apparent fouls on United players Gabriel Heinze and Alan Smith. "A lot has been said on the game," Wenger said yesterday. "We are happy with any evidence given by an objective eye on the game and that's it. There's no further comment to make on that." Asked what he meant by an objective eye, Wenger referred to the Football Association and not Manchester United. "It's the FA's job," he said. "I don't want to do their job for them." (AP)
