Wenger Calls For Patience

Wenger Calls For Patience

Arsenal must be patient and dynamic in order to beat PSV on Wednesday according to Arsene Wenger.

They frustrated Arsenal in the first leg, playing more like a struggling Bolton than the Dutch Champions.

A goal on the counter-attack by Mendes has cast serious doubts over Arsenal`s chances of qualifying for the quarter final.

With Rosicky defiantly out and major doubts over Henry`s fitness Arsenal will be lacking experience. That experience is vital when you need to come from behind as younger players can often become impatient and try to rush things.

Wenger is aware of this (obviously) and has already delivered a warning to his young team. Speaking after Arsenal`s 2-1 victory over Reading Wenger said: 'They will be cautious, wait for us in their half and try to make us impatient.

'We have to be dynamic and patient together and that will not be very easy. But I believe we can do it.

'The most important thing is that a bad result today would have pushed us a little bit in a crisis confidence wise, but these three points get us in a good position in the league to qualify for the Champions League, and that will help us play under a little less pressure on Wednesday.'

it's gonna be a big test for the young guys, as Arsene's quite correct, about the test we'll face. PSV will pitch up and try to frustate us, make us become frantic, then ragged, then finish us off if they're presented with the opportunity. We must guard against this. »»Arsene Knows««

Oh you're refering to your partnership with PSV, the one that, if proven, will result in both being punished severly? You do realise that because you both take part in the Champions League that it would be breaking several FA, UEFA and FIFA rules?

Simmy - substitute PSV for CSKA and you'll get the same response from UEFA - NO CASE TO PROVE!

Patience will be required although I would prefer 3-0 at half time!

Chelsea should be banned from playing on pay-per-view. I mean I paid £1 (I have a season ticket) and I feel utterly robbed! Arsenal built their reputation on 1-0 scorelines but we didnt have the opportunity to pick up any player in world football to enhance our game!
