'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wenger: League Form Is A Worry

Arsene Wenger says that he is worried about the North London outfit's chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Arsenal's away form has been nothing short of pathetic this season, losing nine away games up to press. The likelyhood of Arsenal of entering our new stadium without Champion's League football is looking more and more likely with each passing week, hell, the nightmare situation of having no European football what-so-ever next year is not a million miles away.

Arsene Wenger has now voiced the fears of almost every single Gooner the world over by saying it's going to be very difficult to qualify.

It has been widely tipped that Arsenal's only realistic route to the Champion's League next season is by winning the thing this year, but Arsene quite rightly tells, that we are a long way from achieving that.

''We are still only in the last 16 so it's too early to say winning the Champions League could be our best chance of getting back there again next season,''

''I feel at the moment we have to focus on The Premiership and it would be criminal to give up on that.

''We are close to getting results away from home but we are lacking that little bit at the moment that we have to find between now and the end of the season.

''Nights like Tuesday against Real Madrid should remind the players what they are playing for.

''Long-term, if they want to get back in there, we have to take care of results in The Premiership, but at the moment that is the big worry.''

The prospect of facing 12 long and painful months with the taunts from up the road, has the very real posibility of becoming a reality.

Unless we can address the away form in particular with the more physical teams, this is indeed a big worry that there will not be any CL football next season

yup and you lost to blackburn... that's 10 already this season. Bolton are above you with west ham potentially overtaking you if the draw the next game, while man city and wigan are right on your arse... the heat is on, how did u become so pathetic ending up in midtable?

First of all, it is not a question of being pathetic and no single football team will enjoy continued success at the highest level.Not even for Spurs and if I remember correctly the last success for winning the league goes back as far as 1961 which is a whopping 45 years to this day. Then would you say that it is extremely pathetic for a football club of this statue not being able to win 1 or 2 league championships.
