I’m not sure that too many Arsenal fans would agree with the latest utterings from Arsene Wenger. He quite clearly states that the fact that his team plays “good football” is more important than “getting the result”. Maybe it is easy to say that when his Gunners have just tucked five goals away against an in-form Leicester side and beaten Tottenham at White Hart Lane as an added bonus.
“It has been two weeks and the league is tight again,” Le Prof said on the official Arsenal website. “You have to be consistent and that is what we focus on.
“I feel like the quality of our game is getting better week by week. Overall we are finding the level back that we showed at the end of the season.
“We came to Leicester who have not lost this season and the fact that we came here and won in a convincing way was important for the confidence as well.
“I’m just glad I did my job for the team and the fans. I’m not too concerned about the result. I have had 30 years of football and I know what is important and that is good football.
“What you want is to manage a team that enjoys to play together and gets better every week.”
Yes it is great to see the beautiful game being played by Arsenal, but personally I think the result is very important, especially when title rivals like Man City and Chelsea are dropping points at the same time. Last year played very well against Manchester United at the Emirates but still lost he game! Next week I don’t care if Arsenal win ugly, as long as we get the result!
Wake up Wenger and go for the points instead of the accolades….
