Savage the latest Arsenal critic to eat his words

The list is growing with every Arsenal performance. After beating Liverpool and following it with a famous away victory over Borussia Dortmund, the football pundits that have been pouring cold water on the Gunners’ chances this season are changing their tunes.

The Sky Sports doubters Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp have all started to talk about Arsenal as real title challengers. Now Robbie Savage has written a piece in the Mirror in which he, wait for it, admits he was wrong. Savage was fully on board the anti-Arsenal bandwagon, but the team’s consistency and form have finally got through to him.

Wenger vows not to sell any more players to Man Utd

When Robin van Persie made his first return to Arsenal yesterday, it was always going to be a major talking point. The Dutch striker, his new manager at Manchester United and Arsene Wenger were all expecting a hostile reception from the home fans. It could have been a lot worse, I thought, but some were surprised at the booing.

It was certainly left in no doubt that the Gooners have not forgiven the former captain for forcing the move to out Premier League rivals. Many fans still blame Wenger for allowing the move, although I feel that the financial constraints he is forced to work under left him little option.
