Wenger rues display (AUDIO)


Arsene Wenger admits he's unsure whether the 0-0 point at the JJB Stadium is a point gained or two dropped.

The Gunners' came into the game on a high after their escapades in Milan, but found the worst pitch in the league hampering their passing game. However, Wenger refused suggestions the pitch favoured the home side, denouncing it as 'not fit for football' and says it disrupted the home side just as much as his own team.

Robin Van Persie made his first appearance in 6 weeks after injury, playing 25 minutes from the bench.

We need a fit 11 to be able to challange for the title, to many injuries are screwing us up for exsample hove many times have we been able to field Almunia - sagna,gallas, toure, clicy - rosicky, fabregas, flamini, hlep - rvp, ade for more than one game. if we can avoid more injuries before the end of season then we have a good chance to win the title.

I'm actually waiting for Rosicky, it's like we haven't won a league game since he went out injured not that long ago...

Is it me or is Gilberto not interested anymore? He was slow and poor.. kept giving the ball away.

Good to see RvP back though... although clearly rusty after 5 months out

It's not that he is not interested GF he just is not fast enough anymore. The will is there, the passion is there but he is simply a spent force. A great servant to the club over the years and deserves our thanks but as I said he's just over the hill.

The same can be said about the entire team. Having looked at it again in the MotD highlights, it's not that they didn't try hard, but they're very tired. Can someone tell me why we had to play a friendly (although not everyone took part in it) on Thur after we played Milan away on Tue night?!?! ManU talked about how their Dubai (or somewhere around there?) trip wouldn't affect their domestic performance but it did. And what are we doing playing friendly in the middle of the run-in anyway?!

Off topic but it's horrible - did you guys see Bardsley's foul on Pienaar? He stepped on the guy's leg and it easily could have been an Eduardo situation! But guess what, yellow card and Bardsley played on.

Wigan should not be allowed to play other teams on this disgraceful pitch in one of the world's best leagues. If you want to be in this league you should have a premier quality pitch.

i hv been telling all along that the presence of rosicky is soo crucial to our chances.. his movement, interplays with fabregas and hleb and the way he brings clichy forward is just a delight.. he also makes darting runs into the box and gets at the end of a few crosses..he gives us at least 1 goal every 3 games and his absence is hurting our chances.. we hv a good cover for most position except left midfield.. pls come back soon rosicky.. just like the post above, i cant remember the last time we played with our 1st 11.. its been too long
