Wenger Attacks 'Stupid' Shearer
Arsene Wenger slammed Alan 'elbows' Shearer last night after the former Newcastle striker claimed Arsenal couldn't win the Premiership playing beautiful football.
Shearer delivered his verdict after Arsenal's 0-0 draw away to Portsmouth - a ground where both Liverpool and Manchester United also failed to get a result.
Wenger was not best pleased with Shearer's words. Speaking to the Daily Star after Arsenal's 4-1 demolition of Everton Arsene said: 'The problem is that one guy can come out with a stupid idea and it becomes a common belief even though it is not confirmed by the facts.'
'Listen, we have lost one game since the start of the season so I don`t know what`s wrong with that.
'We have just played Tottenham, Chelsea and Portsmouth and have come away with seven points from that programme. That`s not a bad return.
'Considering that everybody predicted we would be out of the top four this season, I feel we are well on schedule for success.'
