Wenger's Comments Were 'Excessive'

Wenger's Comments Were 'Excessive'

Arsene Wenger has issued a statement regarding comments made directly after the game this afternoon and admitted he may have been a bit excessive.

The Arsenal gaffer said that Martin Taylor should never play football again after a reckless tackle left Eduardo fighting for his football career.

After quiet reflection Wenger admits he may have been hasty in his comments and conceded it was in the heat of the moment.

"It was a highly emotional afternoon and we were all shocked by the injury to Eduardo,' he said. 'On reflection, I feel that my comments about Martin Taylor were excessive. I said what I did immediately after the game, in the heat of the moment."

Wenger's latest statement only goes to prove what many Gooners have been saying all night, that he is only human. A concept completely lost on many rival fans hell bent on smearing Arsene Wenger's name as much as possible.

Oh you're sooooo funny. Even after critising him earlier for his comments, when he admits he's wrong it's not good enough for you. Get a life.

Fair play to him. End of story. If Wenger should apologise, by your 'logic,' so should Taylor, McLeish and Steve Bruce for saying 'didn't feel much contact' to his boss, 'I've seen the challenge and, yes, the studs land on Eduardo's ankle. In slow motion these tackles always look bad but he's not a malicious player - Eduardo was just too quick for him' and 'some may not even think it's a yellow card' respectively, just for the record.

B.I.T.C You are a big man. You like running your mouth on every Arsenal post trying to stir things up from behind your screen. I bet you wouldnt say half the things you say face to face with an arsenal fan. Why are you such a bitter scum bag? answer me that
