This is the worst period of my time at Arsenal – Wenger


Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has admitted that he is experiencing the worst run of his time at the club.

The 67-year-old who has been in charge for over 20 years, watched on as his side were beaten 3-1 by West Brom on Saturday. It was their fourth defeat in five league fixtures.

It is also the worst sequence of results since March 1995, when the Gunners were managed by Stewart Houston.

Wenger said: “We are in a unique bad patch that we haven’t experienced in 20 years. At the moment, we are losing game a,/fter game.

“We have a big fight and it will be difficult now. There’s no other way than fighting, and to do it until the last game of the season. If that’s not good enough, we will have to take the consequences.

“One day, if we don’t get into the top four, then people can mock us.”

Arsenal are in real danger of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the Champions League – a feat they have managed for 18 consecutive seasons.

Speaking about the game, Wenger said: “It was a typical Premier League game. One team has a lot of possession, the other one sits deep and counter attacks. We had 77 per cent of the ball but we didn’t create enough chances.

“Our record on defending set pieces has been good since the start of the season. Their delivery and movement was great.

“They blocked the keeper on the first and third goals. It’s not easy for the keeper to intervene in that kind of situation.

“But I don’t see any obvious signs of a lack of attitude from us. That’s what people criticise when you lose the game. We took the game to them.

“It didn’t work today. We are short of confidence, but I don’t think it is an attitude problem.”

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Great blog!

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  3. Generally I do not learn post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to check out and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very great article.|
