'We Do Not Depend On Decisions'
Even though it was plainly obvious that Thierry Henry's goal should have stood last night, and Mr Wenger afforded himself a bit of a moan about it after the game (and quite rightly so) Le Boss maintains we should not depend on decisions that may or may not go our way.
Not for the first time, I agree with our fearless leader.
Ok so we had a perfectly good goal ruled out, we are not the first club to have this and nor will we be the last. Yes it is very frustrating and the point that it would have given us would have seen the Gunners in pole position to qualify top of the group.
But these are the games we need to be imposing ourselves and need to be winning. We shouldn't be in a position where the referee can make such a massive mistake and cost us points in the first place.
But we were outplayed.
Wenger gives his take on the matter.
'We do not depend on decisions, we depend on our own quality of play. Until they went 1-0 ahead, Moscow were sharper than us, winning more fights than us and finally got the advantage they deserved at that point of the game. We tried to attack after that, and they defended in an intelligent way. They got a bit of luck with the kind of goal which was cancelled, but overall they have shown great quality'
Fortunately for us, our destiny is still in our own hands. We win our remaining games and we'll go through top of the group.
We will definately go through.
Of this I am sure.
