Wenger on off day (AUDIO)

Wenger on off day (AUDIO)


The tie of the round would have left the 9000 travelling fans gobsmacked at the performance from their team. Following on from their humiliating League Cup exit at the hands of North London rivals Spurs just last month, few would have believed the Gunners' would be on the receiving end of such a result so soon after.

Man of the match Wayne Rooney opened the scoring just past the quarter hour mark before Darren Fletcher nodded in a second four minutes later. It was a Portuguese winger who made it 3 before half time, Nani stepping in for probably his best performance this season.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said Emmanuel Eboue's sending off seemed 'harsh' in his opinion but admitted his side were well out of the game by the time Fletcher scored his second header of the match on 74 minutes.

The real test comes in midweek. Arsenal bounced back emphatically after their League Cup exit in January, now can they pick themselves up for the last 16 first leg tie at the Emirates against a lacklustre AC Milan side?

Me neither, what a crap display. Arsene, how about showing Eboue the door?

If we were trying to lure Milan into a false sense of security I think it's safe to say 'job done!'.

Lovely to see your petulant, cheating, diving, bad losing set of tossers get stuffed again. Adebayors dive, Eboues tackle, Gallas kick. Shame

Youre the one getting personal niko and you sound like youre about 8years old in the process. You have to admit you really dont have any class in the way you handle defeat. You now under Wenger play some excellent football and have a great side yet i honestly believe youre now more universally hated than Man utd and Leeds combined. Why is that? Coz the Indicipline and Petulence Wenger has installed throughout Arsenal is there for all to see. How many red cards is it now under winger? 76? More mass brawls, Dives, Off the ball incidents, Moans and Red + Yellow cards to fill a lifetime. Shame

Huddersfield Yiddo - why you don't you go somewhere where someone actually gives a **** about what you say? I really think you're depriving a village of an idiot.

Funny to hear a Yiddo going on about being "universally hated". The irony! Tottenham are easily the most hated team in London. Maybe that's why you live in Huddersfield? The only thing it has in common with Tottenham is that it's also a *****hole.
