Wenger ‘disappointed’ and wonders how Arsenal lost to Bournemouth…

Who will make Wenger smile this summer?Arsenal travelled to Bournemouth today to face a team that was hovering above the relegation zone and hadn’t won for ten games, but then again Arsenal hadn’t won any of their last five either and they had an awful away record. Although the Gunners looked nervous they still looked the most dangerous in the first half, and when Bellerin gave us the lead just after the break it looked like we were finally going to win a game at last.

But yet again we had four mad minutes and went behind, and simply couldn’t recover without a Sanchez or Ozil to galvanise the side. But Wenger was still amazed why or how we lost. “I feel overall physically it was a tough game for us. We made it most difficult and after that we were 1-0 up. We made two very surprising mistakes that were not even forced errors, it was just a lack of decision-making and overall you come out of the game thinking: how did we lose the game?

“That was it basically, but by being very harsh I would say as well that we have not created enough with the possession we had. We looked a bit lacklustre in the final third, not sharp enough to create chances and that’s why as well when you are 1-0 up normally you should create more to be dangerous and we paid for that. It was a combination of the two which made us pay a heavy price.

“Of course it’s frustrating. It’s very frustrating and very disappointing result for us, especially when you are 1-0 up and we made mistakes in areas where you wonder where they come from.”

Disappointing is not the word for a result like today’s… With Liverpool smashing the ‘invincible’ Man City side, we are now a massive 8 points behind the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed teams, and with Tottenham’s 4-0 win yesterday the Spuds are now 5 points clear of us in 5th. We have gone 6 games without a win and we have to play Chelsea again on Wednesday! Yes I guess you could call it disappointing at a push, but disastrous is probably a more relevant word….

    Look at Liverpool go!

    This defeat doesn’t change anything. Who before today thought we would qualify for CL? Look at Spurs and Pool!

    Only chance is to field our best XI in Europa and pray we win.

    Then f### off Wenger and never come back.

    1. Remember Resource? says:

      This is too funny. No no no, true fans must support the club no matter what! No matter how miserable the club is and how miserable it makes them feel. They must support the club no matter what! Idiots! Go protest, do something! boycott games. Boo the team for 90 minutes and see what happens. Boo wenger and the mgmt for 90 minutes straight. Maybe sell shirts demanding for change and wear them into the stadium.
      Do something. The fans are as gutless as the players. Arsenal=Everton of the old days. Spurs=arsenal of the old days. Young squad dynamic manager and a strong youth policy with a strong leader in levy. Just like we had arsene in the old days along with dein.

      1. Maks says:

        They will always have idiots and fancy mtfkers who will buy season tickets…
        …until they dnt sense the problem on their pockets they will sell the best players to our biggest rivals.

    2. Anko says:

      And Liverpool has protected one of his legacy. Invinciblity!!!!. As for Arsene Wenger either he likes it or not this is the beginning if the end of his Arsenal career. Nothing last for ever!!!!!!

    3. Nayr says:

      I dont even understand what this guy says anymore.

      “i feel overall physically it was a tough game”

      continue feeling idiot.

      what is it that he does in training with the players.
      sit around and watch netflix.
      what i saw today doesnt look like players who train.

      iwobi probably is the one on nrtflix remote duty.

      1. Mobella says:

        New line from Wenger that me annoyed mostly now…is we make too many mistakes… The said against Chelsea, Man u, Man city, West B, Nottingham forest It is your job to cut out their mistake. Wenger, you are rendering one of the most potent strike in Europe useless. How many ball was actually passed to Lacazzete today. You coach your team to dilly dally instead of looking for goals at the blast of the whistle and said you don’t know how they loss. Well it is because the opposition scored more goal. Goals win game not possession.

    4. Gunner22 says:

      And you want to replace Wenger with whom?
      Anchelotti? Sacked by Bayern
      Koeman? Sacked by Everton
      Tuchel? Poor at Dortmund
      Now with a good scouting network wenger will get the right players to take us back to glory days

      1. moge says:

        all the managers you mentioned will surely be able to help us achieve than what this stupid old man is doing.at least they will bring us the freedom from thought that ‘in Arsenal there is no life without wenger’, is that not what you and people like you think?

  2. Salmonella says:

    Liverpool buy Van dijk , keita
    1st team to beat City
    They are a club that looks like progressing
    Look at us
    We are f*****g shambles

    1. Exciting, motivated, going places, pushing for champions league and more, early transfers, get the player to take the side to another level, good progressive manager, upward trajectory – Liverpool are all the things we’re not….. no excuses from their manager even when they lose. Why can’t our board be like any other one in the league & do something about our decline under a manager who can’t admit his best times are over

      1. Highbury44 says:

        Remind me when did Liverpool last win the title?

        1. Xxnofx says:

          Give it a rest m8 there on the up we ain’t

          1. Highbury44 says:

            Until they won the title they are no better than us

          2. Durand says:

            Except above us in table, and have a CL spot AGAIN for second straight year.
            At least we have Wenger tho, right?
            Jog on please, you have better luck defending Genghis Kahn here then Wenger.

          3. Highbury44 says:

            I’m not defending Wenger I’m just pointing out that Liverpool haven’t achieved anything until they win the title

          4. jon fox says:

            Who bloody cares about Liverpool anyway? Wxcept you , it seems.

          5. Dboy says:

            And I suppose they can say the same for winning the Champions League ?

          6. John0711 says:

            Highbury 44 if you want to look at history i think your a fool to compare ours to liverpools !!!!

          7. Lagos Gunner says:

            They have won the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE – FIVE TIMES

            your god, Wenger has failed to win it after trying for 20 years.

        2. AB says:

          Dude, look at our club first before making such remarks about another club. We are absolute shit and still haven’t fired wenger…

        3. Durand says:

          Same year Wenger last won Champions League. A trophy saint Wenger has never earned in 21 years.

    2. Mobella says:

      It is not only about which player they bought. It about the coach they have and his vision of the game. This is applicable to man city.

  3. Sandeep says:

    I thought that Wenger himself will step down.But i think he is arrogant.

    1. McLov says:

      He will “respect” his contract. Fn leech he is.

      SACK HIM!!!!

  4. arie82 says:

    Is he still talking about ball possession……

  5. Invincibles49 says:

    Sorry MANC, You are not Invincibles material. One and Only Arsenal.

    1. Invincibles49 says:

      Being downvoted is fine. But fellow Gooners, just take a moment in this moment of turmoil and appreciate the fact the Invincibles was indeed one of the greatest feat achieved in Football history. Even MANC with one of the greatest teams to play in PL could not do it. This is not a tribute to Wenger. This is a tribute to our club, our beloved Arsenal.

      1. TheArsenalWay says:

        I’m more concerned of the present to take time to enjoy the past. To think went from being invincible for a whole season to this!

        I am embarrassed of this manager, for someone who claims to love his club, he sure as hell ain’t showing it! In my eyes, he’s a greedy arrogant man!

        1. AB says:

          Completely agree. But there are fans who will use this as a way to support wenger. There will soon be an article by SamP about wenger’s greatness sighting invincibles.

        2. Jakedala says:

          This is true. We could not compete before because of the crippling dept of the Emirates Stadium.Then we overcame the debt issue but we still can’t compete. Why, two reasons:
          1. Wenger will not spend to get the best players. The Arsenal Board say the money is there.
          2. Wenger is in a time-warp and can’t change tactics. When he arrived we already had world class defenders, then he got lucky and got Sol Campbell on a free. Our defence was solid. Now we have low to mid range defenders, like Chambers, Holding, Debuchy. Cech was 34 when we bought him for 10 mil. How many of them would get into the Chelsea, United or even Liverpool first teams???? The reason we lose matches is because we have a crappy defence. Compare our midfielders as well.
          Wenger should go but he will be there until 2019 at least!! Depressing.

      2. Rkw says:

        It’s a ffing distraction … If wenger was in france in 1940 as they capitulated in face of hitlers advancing troops he and his loyal fans would be reminding us of the glory years when Napoleon controlled half of Europe … Tired of listening to these people living in the past

        1. Invincibles49 says:

          Living in the past means ignoring the current situation and have a false hope for the future just because you were good in the past. That is certainly not the case here and i am not delusional.

          This is not an appreciation of an individual but a remarkable achievement in the game of football. If this achievement was from some other team, i would have given the same tribute. Its just that this turns out to be Arsenal. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.

          1. jon fox says:

            If you want to write about ancient history you need a history website. THIS IS A AFOOTBALL ONE.

          2. Marty says:

            We all know what the invincibles did but is that any relevance to the shambles that we are today.

      3. ks-gunner says:

        Who actually cares what happened once up on a time when the present is a horror show?

      4. jon fox says:

        Yes, fair enough. But most of us prefer living in todays world. Your profile name reveals how you prefer the past days. Of course we are ALL glad our record is now safe for another season. But far more important is getting a new and proper manager for today. I love HERBERT CHAPMAN TOO BUT DON’T TALK ABOUT HIM; NOR DO OTHERS FROM TODAYS WORLD. YOUR POST WAS ONLY TELLING US WHAT WE ALREADY KNEW. MOVE ON!

  6. AndersS says:

    If he really is amazed, that we lost, it just shows how lost he is.
    But apparently he isn’t going to take responsibility and leave. He has no dignity left, if he doesn’t.

  7. Malcom in the middle says:

    If Wenger is really wondering why this happened then I’ll help him out – because you are in charge…..

  8. Sue says:

    Arsene wonders how we lost to Bournemouth….I’m wondering how he’s still our manager

  9. sfgunner says:

    many of us wanted klopp 3 yrs ago, perfect replacement, wenger out on a high note w the fa cup, but once pool hired him, we knew the time was near when pool would reenter the top 4, and who would fall? it was united for a spell, but not long w jose, ad ow even spuds pass us up. we are along way in player quality to get back to top 4, but whats worse, our reputation needed to attract world class talent dropped significantly. now we must bring in a fresh manager, or as i said last summer, we are becoming the new everton, 6-7th table…

  10. Kenny Rolfe says:

    Listen, we were never going to get into the top four, we’re now battling would you believe with Burnley and Liecester for 6th place and Europa cup qualification. Maybe we’d be better off for next year with a new manager , no European football and be able to concentrate on the Premier League. So, on the whole with Liverpool beating City and preserving our Invincible tag, defeat to Bournemouth sealing Wenger’s fate, today may not as been as bad as we all thought.

    1. jon fox says:

      Maybe? Only Maybe? KENNY, TODAY WAS GREAT NEWS DESPITE THE UNTHINKING GLOOM FROM MANY WHO ARE NOT THINKING STRAIGHT. I am obsessed with the need for Wengers sacking , to the exclusion of all else with the club, since until the senile fossil is gone, everything is is merely re-arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic. But the good news for others, who perhaps have even til today been hoping for possible 4th place, is that NOW we are 8 points behind Liverpool and Chelsea and 5 behind Spurs, is that surely now even these fantasists will not believe any more and the Wenger out campaign – which will be in force at Emirates next week – will have overwhelming support. We almost have him now. Just one final push til we have a sane man in charge once more.

      1. Ivan says:

        I so hope you;re right guys.

  11. Nickw says:

    How can wenger say we lost to 2 ‘surprising defenseive errors’, when making defensive errors is a hallmark of our game. What would be truly surprising is if we won a game without making any defensive errors. How low do we have to go before the penny finally drops and the board actually do their job and sack this turkey. Like the team they haven’t got the guts to do it.

    1. jon fox says:

      You ask “HOW DOES HE SAY IT?” I don’t blame you for not being able to put your sound mind in the mind of an insane man, who is away with the fairies. Excuses is what he does, surely you know that? He is founder member of www. excuses.com

  12. henry says:

    The ox is proof that Wenger done.He should leave. He can no longer motivate players. No matter who we buy, with Wenger we shall never win anything of note.
    The biggest transfer I am waiting for is Wenger Out.

    1. Maks says:

      And still lot s of people were angry on Ox! Crazy! The boy found himself a better club, No! he just fled from the sinking ship. Why would he stay when captain is a madmen?

  13. mysty says:

    its the kid mehn…. check the stats how many games have we won with the sky blue kit….. i just knw somehw someway we will loss the game…. mind the kit

    1. jon fox says:

      So then, of course. IT WAS THE KIT! Well then , that’s a relief and there was I thinking it was down to the manager. Just change our kit then and we win the treble.

  14. jon fox says:

    If anyone on here still attends games, then STOP right now. We need an empty ground to force the American shyster to sack the French fraud and fossil and a regularly empty ground and no one buying merchandise to force the YANK FRAUD OUT. Seriously , THIS is what will cure our club and IMO ONLY THIS ACTION. Though I do think Wenger will be out before May at the latest. But we need a complete clear out of all the snakes in the regime. A heavy and embarrassing defeat against Chelsea in 2nd leg will seal his fate. PRAY FOR IT.

  15. mysty says:

    the curse of the sky blue kit continues….

  16. sfgunner says:

    ox chamberlain sure looks good under klopp…

    1. Dboy says:

      Couldn’t agree less. Every good player that has come to Arsenal has become crap. Their development is stifled. Look at the youngsters coming through the academy, as soon as AW get’a hold of them they finished.

  17. Werner Nel says:

    That’s easy to explain. Wenger is a shit coach and he picks a shit team. Arsenal have very average players. We need a proper striker, defensive midfielder,centre back and goalkeeper. And we need a new coach. When is this shit ever going to stop. Arsenal play crap and loose. And the coach wonders what went wrong. He is a joke

  18. Adam Criniti says:

    CP stumbles out of the gate…Deboer canned

    Everton sucks something almighty…Koeman fired

    West Brom can’t find a win…Pulis given his walking

    Bilic disappoints @ West Ham….the Hammer drops

    Swansea City stutter out of the gates…Clement sacked..

    Meanwhile Arsene Freaking Wenger is “DISAPPOINTED” in North London after another
    historically embarasing loss @ Bournemouth.

    Says all you need to know about the pathetic state of our beloved club.

  19. M L M Gunner says:

    Resourse …what does your sourse say about our standard of play. Inside info only…. Lol

  20. Colin Decoteau says:

    What does ArseneWegner have to do to get the sack?because once again another shocking away day performance , but as we know ,so many of our shallow followers only has to get a draw in our next game and all will be forgotten ,so here’s something new ,most of us real fans support the club in one way or another , wether it be attending games , buying merchandise or other means and this applies to those who attend matches , how about you throw your match day programme on the pitch/in Wegner’s direction in a united show of unhappeyness,because you’re already throwing your hard earned money away by going to watch that shit show ,why not anything is worth trying.

  21. Greg says:

    One question, why is wenger still here?

  22. Sue says:

    What I’d give to wake up to the news that Arsene has been sacked… instead I’ll have to deal with the news that Sanchez has become a United player ?

    1. Maks says:

      Is it confirmed?
      …I was thinking that media is boosting Alexis to ManUtd just to get more clicks from the angry Arsenal fans, but now I dnt know anymore.

      1. Sue says:

        Not confirmed as yet… just a matter of time

        1. Ivan says:

          The worrying this is Sky are now saying that Utd are confident that Sanchez will want to sign for them.

          1. Sue says:

            I read earlier that he’s wanted to play for United since he was a kid

          2. Maks says:

            I think that Alexis want to win things, but also score goals and play every single game which with Guardiola hasnt been (Barcelona) and wont be the case (ManCity) so with fracking ManUtd he would have more time in the game but they wont win anything as long they have Mourinho in charge.
            So… will see.

          3. Sue says:

            What??? They won efl cup & Europa league last season!!!!

  23. dragunov762mm says:

    Arsene skills of motivate is “good” as dead. It’s been success because gunners played with no motivation and desires, just like going 9 to 5 and take the big money weeks in weeks out. This must be the worst year for us after 20 years, no doubt about it. These Arsene last ride is really torturing us like dead sentence criminal waiting for execution.

  24. GB says:

    Look, I’m a Gooner, have been since the 60s, I’m sorry if I piss people off at times but I love my club. I’ve sat through a lot worse than this in my time and I’ve called them shit and useless effing tossers walking home from the games. But some of the vitriol that is on here is just too much some times. Success is not instant, it goes in cycles. spurs were rubbish but good 50 years ago, pool were rubbish but good in the 80s, we were great but now poor but will come back. Support the team not the regime!

    1. Maks says:

      Well said, but personally I have a problem with the team also. Some players had been forced in 1st 11 over and over again (by Wenger) and we did not buy better players who have a heart and skill to compete. I dnt think we should win titles non stop but I want the team I support to fight. And today I saw just Jack fighting like a true gooner. Some players has an easy life at this club and thats effecting others, everybody…
      …Sven and Raul should change things, briniging those two gave me hope, but now, right now, at this fracking moment, only thing that can really change things is money…
      When Board sense lack of profit they will start thinking. Maybe Svena and Raul are result of that, I hope, but what if Wenger stays until the end of his contract… Jesus!
      Patience is all that we need right now.

    2. Admin says:

      Well said GB!

      1. jon fox says:

        Mr Admin , Are you away with the same fairies Wenger is away with? Yes, lets all cheer for mediocrity and couldn’t care less performances under a weird and oddball manager, eh? And that will make us feel better , apparently! What planet are you and the tiny few thinking like you actually on?

        1. Admin says:

          Umm I was only agreeing with “Support the team – Not the regime”
          Is that a bad sentiment?

          1. jon fox says:

            Unlike other periods in Arsenal history, THIS team is a direct symptom of this awful and corrupt regime. Many of our players have been marking time and playing for huge unearned money for ages. Walcott is the prime example of this fraud, and FRAUD, on a large scale is what it is. The likes of IWOBI AND XHAKA ARE FAST GOING DOWN THE SAME TRACK. THEY SEEM TO THINK WORKING, RUNNING , CHASING BACK are for others. They catch this disease from a manager who does no defensive coaching whatever but just hopes for the best -in other words, a fraud, not earning the money he is paid. Plus an invisible and mute owner who cares nothing ; likewise a charletan CEO and arrogant “I don’t answer questions from little people” Chairman. FRAUDS AND SHYSTERS AND SOME PLAYERS FOLLOW SUIT, THOUGH NOT ALL OF THEM.

    3. Rkw says:

      Are you a bhuddist? If so , and it seems a reasonable explanation of these daft ideas you hold, could you please help mr wenger find his karma in some mountain hideaway 6 thousand mikes from north london ..

    4. jon fox says:

      But the team don’t even support themselves. As in not giving support to the man in pssession and marking opponents when they have the ball. This sham team does not deserve our support and that is why we are all so blazing mad with them. If you can’t or WON’T see this clear truth then you, yourself, have serious problems.

    5. Dboy says:

      Well said. But I also bet you that those good times and bad times didn’t have the same managers in charge ???

  25. RSH says:

    Team isn’t near good enough, manager even worse. Compare the lineups LFC and MCFC put up today to Iwobi/Welbeck/Xhaka/Chambers etc. These are players not good enough and would not be near most top clubs. Arsenal will continue to decline until this regime ends. We, as fans will sadly just have to endure until higherups finally decide to stand up to Wenger and force him out somehow.

  26. Coldzero says:

    Aw is still the manager because Kroenke wants him there- it’s very simple.

    Kroenke and Arsene are the problem – both.

    Our downward spiral have coincided with Kroenke- he has no passion for the club and never will. So we can get rid of AW but until we get rid of that fool Kroenke nothing will change.

    He isn’t selling his shares anytime soon so it’s important people get used to that.

  27. John says:

    Wenger please spare us the heartaches. Arsenal made this man wealthy, time for him to go. He is garbage. Groundhog Day again? Why?

  28. Jakseth says:

    The way I see it, even without Sanchez and Ozil we have a team perfectly capable of winning against team like bournemought. But we somehow don’t. So many of our player are stagnating and It certainly has to do with the coach preparation. It’s really time to get wenger out. Look at ox against city today , he played so good.
