Arsenal fans have been giving Arsene Wenger and his team a very hard time (including this website to be fair) after their stuttering start to the season, but the fact is that the Gunners have still only lost one League match this season despite a crippling injury list.
Wenger is aware of the doubters, but doesn´t think any of this will affect the squad ahead of tomorrows difficult visit to high-flying Swansea, in fact he seems to expect criticism whatever he does during games.
“If you are 3-0 up and get back to 3-3, you always get the same,” Wenger said on Sky Sports. “I have managed 2000 games and can anticipate what people will say. If you defend and get back to 3-3, people will ask why you defend and not continue to play a normal game. If you continue to attack, people ask why you attack. It is so predictable,”
“We can learn a lot from what happened on Tuesday. We have special incidents. Some things we can correct, like the second and third goals.
“We are very positive inside the camp. We are not touched by that (the negativity). When we do not win, we are not happy. The rest, we can live with.”
One thing we can ALL live with is the news that a win tomrrow will put Arsenal back into fourth place, and just three victories behind the invincible-looking Chelsea team.
Why can´t we just get behind the team for a change and applaud the way they are dealing with a very difficult situation instead of knocking them at every single opportunity?
