Arsene Wenger looked like a lot of Arsenal fans felt as he tried to explain how the Gunners had thrown away a winning position for the second time in two games. And if that is how he feels, how is he going to be able to solve the problems and get the team going in the right direction again.
The Frenchman is usually able to find a few positives and be pragmatic after a poor resuly, but he seemed at a loss as he spoke to Sky Sports after losing to Swansea City. Not only did Wenger struggle to find a reason for the team’s poor performance, you could see the frustration and disappointment written all over his face.
He did suggest that a big problem was that the Gunners just did not compete hard enough, getting beaten in numerous challenges in key areas at key times. But many fans and football pundits will ask the question whether the lack of fight and all of the club’s problems is coming from the top.
It is not just Wengers desire and determination that is being questioned, though, because the team tactics and substitutions were once again highlighted and shown to be wanting. We have been here before though, and Wenger has proved everyone wrong. But are we finally seeing the beginning of the end for the Prof?
