Arsene Wenger has been bombarded with criticism this week after Arsenal only managed a 0-0 draw away at Aston Villa, but Wojciech Szczesny thinks that is quite a good result considering it was their third game in ten days, and it could have been worse if Szczesny hadn’t pulled off an excellent save to deny Brett Holman’s long-range effort towards the end of the game.

The Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has just been appointed a coach at Old Trafford after retiring from playing, and it seems in his first interview he has decided to talk about Arsenal’s inability to win a trophy, despite playing the best football in the Premiership (at times…)
Scholes said: “They may play the prettiest football, but it doesn’t always produce the results they need,”
“It doesn’t irritate me that people say they’re the best footballing team, because while they are doing that, we are winning games. They do play the best football to watch at times, but what is the point of that, if you are not winning anything? .......Read the full article here
