No deal in place for Higuain by AH
Nacho Monreal has probably got a different perspective to all his Arsenal team mates about the club, as he only signed for the Gunners at the end of January after an injury to Kieran Gibbs. The left bacl spent the first half of the season playing for Malaga in the Spanish Primera Liga, so probably knew nothing about the intense pressure that Arsene Wenger and his players were under earlier in the season.
Arsene Wenger has already acknowledged that Arsenal did not play well enough on Saturday. He has not taken refuge in bemoaning his luck, despite the fact that the Gunners dominated the game throughout and fell victim to a flukey goal that was one of only two attempts on target by Blackburn Rovers.
The Arsenal fans have practically given up on the little Russian maestro Andrei Arshavin after accusing him of being lazy on the pitch over the last couple of seasons, but his manager Arsene Wenger completely refuses to allow any criticism of the 31 year-old’s commitment to the team.
