Wenger Believes In The Quality

Wenger Believes In The Quality

Arsene Wenger is look for Arsenal to bounce back from a nightmare week as he prepares his team to face struggling QPR at The Grove tomorrow.

Wenger concedes that that team has lost it`s attacking edge over the past 7 days but believes we have the quality to make it right.

'At West Ham, we looked outstanding going forwards, dynamic and then suddenly had two flat performances. It is difficult to explain. We have hit the wall a little bit in the last two games, and just did not find our rhythm.

'But we have to just focus again on the quality of our game, the way we want to play, and not concede too much against who we play. With the quality (we have), the results will come back.

'We have to put what happened to us on Wednesday night into perspective - we know we were not at our best, but we have lost one game in 43 home European games. An accident like that can happen.

'We are still in a strong position in the Champions League, what is important for us now is to bounce back and have a good result in the Premier League.'

This is almost a 'cut n paste' response we've heard from Arsene many times over the past few seasons but we have to hope that this current blip is just that, because if we follow up 2 very poor results and performances (and a fiery AGM) with a third against one of the league`s bottom sides then things are really going to kick off.

What happened at the AGM that made it fiery?

Quite right, there. A lot was made up by the media, of a fractious AGM whereas, the club should be commended for holding an event that will give stakeholders an opportunity to face the management and board, in such trying times.

Hill-Wood stabbed his cigar into the eye of Tim Payton and called him a pleb prof, full on brawl ensued.

Hmmm. Interesting line up by Wenger. Jack and Sagna start. Arteta, Ramsey and Cazorla too. A 4-4-2 or are we going to see Cazorla on the right wing? That's what I think he was bought for, if you ask me.

We've been a wee bit tentative in the attacking 3rd of the opponents. A little more gambling and we could have been at least, 1 up, from the spilled shots their keeper has had. On two occasions, if we had runners who anticipated the shots, we could have succeeded in getting onto the rebounds. The side is still struggling with the new formation/personnel perhaps and we know we are yet to Gel in the front.

Sagna has done well and so has Jack, who has been in the middle of everything good we have done, going forward. Great to have him back even if it appears to have caused Cazorla to play more from the flanks and reduced his influence, somewhat.

Get in there!!!

Not convincing but it is 3 points in the bag.
27/10/2012 16:53:00
Jack was very impressive, probably our best player and Sagna had a good game also. Ramsey doesn't really offer much as an attacking threat out wide and needs to be played in the middle. I can understand him being picked on the right wing in a tough away game to help us control the midfield (as in the Man City game where he played well). At home against a team near the bottom of the table we should be playing a proper winger to deliver the crosses for Giroud. Hopefully this will boost the confidence of the team a bit and we can put a run together.
