Arsenal - Wenger Never Worried

Arsenal - Wenger Never Worried

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims at no point was he worried that his boys in red and white would not come good.

The start to our season was not an ideal one, and the small tally of points we had after three games worried more than a gooner or two, but not our unflappable leader.

Wenger's resolve to remain faithful to the beautiful football he craves can sometimes be frustrating, but ultimately, he always proves his beliefs are the way to go.

'I was not worried too much when we started the season without winning games because I felt the quality was there,' said Wenger.

'However, I know there comes a point where you have to win - if you do not do that, the confidence drops so much so that you lose the quality of your game because the players then start to play scared.'

'That is why the Hamburg game and after that the Manchester United match were certainly turning points for us.'

as always - "Arsene Knows". Im really excited by the potential of our team this season with new boys like Rosicky, Baptista and Gallas, Theo coming in. And likes of Hleb, van Persie Fabregas and Djorou adapting to the premiership... waiting for lauren, senderos, diaby and clichy to recover from injurt. I might add that i am keen on seeing Fran Merida, Vincent van den Berg and Barazite play for the arsenal once the graduate from the reserve team or in the Carling Cup. Cant forget how well our boys on loan are doing - Bendtner, Larrson, Muamba, Lupoli, and Gilbert. --- Cheers to the best footballing team in europe. ARSENAL!!!

I'd like to personally thank Man.Usa for kickstarting our season. I bet they are well chuffed with themselves. Speaking of which, was that a wind up in the Sun this morning about Rooney saying he'd never dive??? F***ing short memory. AW is a ledge.

The wise man speaks because he has something to say, the fool speaks because he has to say something. Easy COCKeril.

I don't think that's a bad assesment jono. Maybe 2nd this year and top next if we keep the current crop together.

Looks like we'll have to lobby a bit harder. Where's my ouija board? Let's see if I can't use Henry Norris's influence from beyond the grave.

There is every reason that Arsenal could go and win the thing. Ultimately our biggest tests will be Chelsea, Bolton, Blackburn and Liverpool, I'd think. If we handle them, and play like we should against the other crap of the league (Tottenham and Man U, for instance)...2nd *at least*, surely?

I do think he is lying though to say he wasn't a little concerned. If we had lost at the Trafford Bowl we'd have been too far behind to mount any kind of challenge. Even a draw would have left us in the proverbial, so with 5 minutes left do you really believe he wasn't doing mental arithmatic with the table? If Le boss says he was calm then I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.....just.
