Arsene Takes Blame For United Romp

Arsene Takes Blame For United Romp

Arsene Wenger has talked about the scorelines we have seen this season, and whilst he attributes that to the attacking intent of the top clubs, he knows he got it wrong against United.

Speaking to arsenal.com specifically on the subject of our thumpings by United and City this season, Wenger said.

'Its because you have teams of quality and they can punish you. City have quality up front as well, (6-1) was as well special circumstances because United played with 10 men, you don't sit back, you still attack. When we were punished (United) I took a gamble and took Coquelin out, who was the only defensive player in midfield and of course we were too open.'

I doubt we'll see the same mistake again.

I think that picture of Wenkle, bares a striking resemblance to Josef Fritzel, do you think there's a chance they're related.......... Any way, yes he was responsible, coz he's totally lost the plot. The Mancs will spank you again, and I'll be cheering them on regardless of our position. Thursday night, Chanel 5, Thursday night Chanel 5, COYS

We're not going to be that much stronger than when we last faced them unfortunately, we'll have Song back but coquelin did ok at OT and was probably our only silver lining on that day of which the line up was Szczesny, Koscielny, Djourou, Jenkinson, Traore, Rosicky, Walcott, Ramsey,Arshavin, Coquelin & Van Persie. So we are now arguably weaker in the full back positions with Djourou and Miquel in place of Jenks and Traore.Permer and Song are likely to be the only other changes to that 11. I fear for us tomorrow. Have a terrible feeling we're gonna get proper schooled again.

Interested only in getting the 3 points from this game to maintain a bit of daylight between us and newcastle, liverpool given that they were beaten last night.

His monumentally stupid substitution cost us at least a point in this match too.
