Arsenal's bad luck

I don't like any of the "big 4" teams of the English Premier League, those being Manchester United,  Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool per the current order of the standings, MUFC, Man U that notoriously has a large bandwagon following.

But what is good sportsmanship and what is fair can not be ignored as to some horrendous calls and noncalls in the Arsenal/Liverpool Champions League series, in fact, Brian Glanville even mentions another err in the FA Cup which saw Portsmouth defeat West Bromwich in the final.

"To err is human…Or to be a modern referee. Mistake after costly mistake has lately been made, to the outrage and expense of the clubs which have been its victims. Arsenal, for instance, twice in the same week. " - Brian Glanville, http://www.worldsoccer.com/glanvill

How often is "instant replay" and "video review" going to be discussed without anything being done about it and so we are left with the bad taste of a soccer/football game turning on a referee's mistake regardless of whatever team one is for.

Indeed, I hope the Chelsea/Liverpool series starting April 22 favors the Blues, to bring some justice to this situation.
