Thierry Henry says he couldn't care less if Arsenal don't play well...as long as they keep getting points.
Arsenal have had to get scrappy a few times this season in order to get anything from games, and it's paid off.
It may not be the Arsenal way but when so many youngsters are coming through sometimes the senior players have to roll thier sleves up, pick the youngstes up and take the game by the scruff of the neck.
Arsenal came from behind for the 11th time at home this season to beat Wigan 2-1 thanks to 2 late goals. One siz (Fitz Hall)put the ball in the back of his own net on 82 minutes before Tomas Rosicky was nearly decapitated in the process of heading home Baptista's poweful cross on 85 minutes.
But the Arsenal captain doesn't care: "Once again we came back into the game with desire, passion and commitment.
"We`ve got hammered sometimes for playing good football and not winning games. At the moment we are coming back into games when maybe we are not playing the best that we can play but who cares? We are getting points.
"Trust me, we are not going 1-0 down on purpose and I am sure there were people who thought this was the day [we`d lose at The Grove].
"We were joking about it at the end, saying we have to stop being 1-0 down. Like at Middlesbrough, we went up a gear when we had been 1-0 down and only playing with 10 men.
"But somehow we always manage to get back into it and that`s why I feel this team is growing. Two years ago I remember being behind against some teams and we did not find the resources to come back."
