When Sunderland’s Sebastian Larsson curled in the free-kick on Sunday against us, midfielder Tomas Rosicky was seen ‘laughing’ as the ball sailed into the net. At that moment, many Arsenal fans and the commentators were asking, “why on earth would he be laughing if we have just had a goal scored against us?”

Rosicky has come out and explained himself, he said, “I was laughing? That’s not laughter because, to be honest, when he took the ball immediately I was thinking about the situation when Rooney scored at Old Trafford.

“That wasn’t a laugh – it was a desperate laugh that such a screamer would be scored again. I don’t have to turn around. When I see his face and he is celebrating, why should I turn around? I have been here six years and anyone who thinks I would laugh at that . . . for people to take it that way is frankly unbelievable.”

    Why shouldn’t he laugh? Isn’t it funny? Wayne Roney scoring freekicks just like scoring penalty kicks, same also to Larson’s goal. Thomas should laugh cos it so funny.

    Our boys are very fragile when it comes to defending set pieces. This, perhaps,explains TR’s laughter.

    I was d first person dat saw Rosicky laughing wen d freekick was curled in by Larsson. I believed dat he laugh bcz he did look back at d net bt he saw Larsson celebrating on d base dat d same place is wea Rooney scored his own free kick against Arsenal. So, dn’t blame Thomas or query him cos evrybdy has d right 2 laugh.

    Sometimes you have to laugh. Results have been bad, we’ve had very little luck, and the pressure is piling on. We started the game well, should have been several goals up, but even then our opponents score an amazing, unstoppable goal to equalise. It was just one of those moments when you ask “when is this going to end!?”. Oh well, Rosicky played well, and we won, so who cares anyway?

    Rosisky was despondent with the way our goal keeper is brazingly conceding such free kicks. I also laffed in disgust.
