Wenger tells Arsenal fans to Get Ready for GOALS!!

I do hope that Arsene Wenger is right about what us fans can expect to see from the Arsenal team in the next week or so because we have been a little starved of goals to celebrate, especially at the Emirates stadium where the Gunners have drawn a blank in front of goal for the last three games in a row.

The boss reckons that there is no need for concern over this apparent problem, as an Arsenal.com report explains. Wenger feels that his players are doing the right things, up to a point, and that the accuracy of the final ball of the sharpness of the finishing will not stay tantalisingly out of reach for long.

The Gunners have been playing well and creating chances after all and we have come up against three very defensively solid teams and three keepers really on their mettle in the games against Chelsea, Swansea and Sunderland. Perhaps poor old Myhill of West Brom and then Given or Guzan of Aston Villa will pay the price for the Arsenal players´ recent frustration.

Wenger said, ““It’s difficult to analyse really. We didn’t score against Chelsea, Swansea City and Sunderland but it’s unusual for us. If you look at the games, we had the chances to score in every single game.

“What we want to do is to continue to play our game but better, quicker, with more movement and then we will score again. The finishing is in cycles and we have gone through a cycle that is a bit less positive.

“Before, we scored goals for fun and I’m sure if we just concentrate on the quality of our game that we will score again.

“We have made progress, we have better defensive stability, the belief in the team is strengthened for a big challenge next year and we have overcome a hurdle that we did not do last season, to exist in the big games. That is very important when you want to challenge.

“What it will take for us is if you look well at our season we had many players injured together for long periods this season. What it will take first is to have them all together for as long as possible and have not many injuries at the same time.”

So do you expect Arsenal to run riot in front of goal now? Has too much been made of these three home games, especially when you consider that we put three past Hull City in the game after Chelsea and that we scored at Old Trafford?

    AW for president please, the guy is a great politician spinning words around like Russian roulette for all these gullible arsenal fans. “continue to play the way we play….”- Hey buddy your way of playing was found out in 2005 so it might be time to reinvent or we’ll just wait for the new manager after you’re gone to win us the league. 2 more year, i’m counting the days!!

      I’m surprised to look at the number of thumbs down! 😮

        I’m surprised by the number of green thumbs, only deluded folks would expect Wenger to challenge teams without the quality of players it requires.. We didn’t have the money to get quality players hence why we couldn’t play the same football as teams like Barca, and don’t be bringing up lies about how Mourinho would have won CL with Bendtner, Chamakh and Djourou.

          We will beat west brom 3-1…..giroud,Sanchez,ozil to score

  2. Mick The Gooner says:

    It’s our last game of the season. At home. If we don’t score, if we don’t win, there’ll be a very bad mood among the fans for a long while.

  3. 100 % behind you @dennis.
    Time is up Monsieur Wenger.Thank u 4 all you’ve done.
    New broom and all that.

    The lads are getting down the hill a bit, and I hope we have hit the bottom before climb up again. We need second wind a.s.a.p! Our men should train for long shots set up intensively as well as dead ball situation. Wingers should play more effective with their cross. Let’s get behind them in this last game before FA Cup final. COYG!!!

    A little less conversation and a little more action please arsene! Coyg!

    If u watch Henry Goals on YouTube then u will know that there is no way that we can win major trophies with Oliver Giroud..Wenger is Dreaming

    1. atid says:

      Even henry didn’t win major trophies every year. Well i am sure giroud won 1 of the major trophies last yea. Let’s not forget each season there is only 5 trophies for us to play for, Community Shield – Won, League Cup – Chelsea, League – Chelsea, Fa Cup – Arsenal or Aston Villa, Champions League – Barcelona or Juventus. To be in with a shout of taking 2 of the 5 and losing out in the other 3 to the likes of chelsea, barcelona/juventus is hardly abysmal. Things could be worse, we could be Man United, Liverpool or Spurs – Naff all

  7. davidnz says:

    Lol. No concern
    Sharpness will return.
    unlucky we played teams
    who defend and goalies who stop the ball.
    how dare teams try to stop us scoring!!!
    before we scored goals for fun…did we?
    finishing is in cycles..a little less positive cycle
    defensive stability, less injuries, better combination,
    speed, accuracy, balance , belief , energy, progress, hurdles
    overall, consistency, less nervousness, with out the handbreak
    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. 🙂

  8. babacee says:

    We want a predator striker who is quick finishes half chances to compliment Giroud

  9. To all those detractors of my Wenger to retire comments I say you must like second best, oops! 3rd best , my mistake.

  10. SoOpa AeoN says:
