Do Arsenal REALLY still bottle it when pressure is ON?

When Arsenal took apart the Liverpool side of Brendan Rodgers that has been feted by the English media for their surge up the Premier League table after a shaky start to the season, it highlighted our own surge and the way that Arsene Wenger and the players have answered a lot of our critics and suggested to the fans that the Gunners have finally got a squad capable of winning the title. Or have we?

Three things we learned from Arsenal’s performances in March

Arsenal were simply irrepressible during the month of March, winning all of their league fixtures and also progressing to the semifinals of this season’s FA Cup after seeing off Manchester United at Old Trafford. Going out of the UEFA Champions League on virtue of away goals would have hurt the Gunners, who put in a splendid effort against AS Monaco in the second leg of the tie. Arsene Wenger, too, would have been happy with how this month panned out, but what will he have taken away from his side’s displays?

Arsenal fans should be POSITIVE for next season!

Wenger accuses Monaco boss of lying!

The Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim accused Arsene Wenger of disrespecting him after Arsenal’s defeat at the Emirates. He said that Wenger refused to shake his hands after the match which put Monaco 3-1 ahead.

Wenger asks Arsenal to focus on the POSITIVES from Monaco win

It was always going to be a disappointment for Arsenal to exit the Champions League at the first knockout stage once again and the fact that our opponents Monaco were a team that most people expected us to beat made that all the harder to take this time.

Was Jardim right to accuse Arsenal of disrespect?

Not content with knocking Arsenal out of the Champions League on away goals, the Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim rubbed salt into the wounds by accusing Arsene Wenger and the Gunners of showing a lack of respect to his team. As reported by Sky Sports, the Portuguese coach was referring to the game at the Emirates where he felt that we took victory fro granted and then Wenger did not shake his hand after the final whistle.

At last! We have an Arsenal team to make us PROUD!


Arsenal boss claims Monaco were LUCKY to go through!

Arsene Wenger was never going to be happy to see his Arsenal side go out of the Champions League at the hands of his former club Monaco. If they had been the better team over the two legs, however, I sense that he would have found it easier to take.
