Wenger Knows……What? by BN
After yesterday’s dire performance, yet another one this season, for me it’s time for change, I want Arsene out.
You must question his motivational skills for the team to continually start games as slow as we do . We need to get into teams from the first whistle put them under pressure make them scared to come to the Emirates, but we tap the ball around from side to side with no threat or penetration and allow visiting teams to settle their nerves and enjoy their surroundings. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger knows that his team are under fire from all and sundry after being knocked out of the FA Cup and (virtually) the Champions League, but he thinks the players “haven’t done too badly” and he must keep faith with them as they now have to carry on the fight to finish fourth in the Premiership.
Wenger said: “When you are in our situation at the moment, it is important you show faith in your players and stick with them,” he said. .......Read the full article here

Arsene Wenger risked playing Cesc Fabregas in the first leg of the Champions League against Barcelona, despite his weakened knee from a tackle the previous weekend. It backfired on him as Fabregas ended up with a cracked fibula after another crunching tackle from Carlos Puyol.
Now he has the same problem this week, as Thomas Rosicky was also badly kicked by Karl Hendry at the weekend, and he hasn’t yet been given enough time to recover.
