All the talk of the last few weeks has been about Arsenal strikers coming and going Blah blah, but I think I can honestly say once again that Wenger should be doing something about our ageing comical defence, who regularly make schoolboy errors and gift goals to our opponents. They have done exactly that again tonight against Swansea, and yet again Wenger admits that we have a problem in that area.
He said to the BBC after the game: “I felt defensively we were very poor and made big mistakes. It’s better not to talk about the second or third goals.
“Swansea were sharp, disciplined and hungry. Unfortunately I believe we were not good enough, I believe we were not disciplined enough.”
I am absolutely amazed that Arsenal haven’t been linked with buying any defenders this January, except for a 20 year-old unknown Greek boy that has no chance of making the team for some time). So does Le Prof actually look at our ‘goals against’ column and compare them to the other teams at the top?
Never mind the top! Swansea, our opponents who were bottom this morning, have conceded just 2 goals more than us. Brighton, have conceded one LESS than us. Brighton!
Have a word with yourself Arsene and do something about this very obvious problem. You have 24 hours.
