Arsenal suffered another defeat ..this time at the Emirates ....losing 2- to Swansea , as two late goals by Michu left Arsene Wenger facing the home fans wrath ...it was clear during and after the game that the fans are growing ever more frustrated by their teams performances , Arsene Wenger was asked about his future with the Gunners and he said .."You make your assessment at the end of the season, as I said many times." We are in this job to turn things around, and I am confident we will [because of] the quality of the players and the spirit we have,".
The game against West Brom will see Arsenal hoping to improve their recent home record ...only 3 wins from 10 Premier League games .
West Brom came unstuck again as they lost 1-0 to Stoke and missed a chance to go third in the table ....it was not the result manager Steve Clarke wanted after the previous game ...a 3-1 defeat by Swansea , he said after the game "We haven't been carried away in the dressing room. We knew there would be bad moments in the season and two defeats in a row are as bad as it has got so far."I have no doubts about the players' character. The first target is still 40 points and we look forward to the next game .
Deserved win for the gunners!
I was hoping they would miss that first penalty ,because there is no way they should have gotten that!
The better quality won in the end ,but WBA gave a good account of themselves.
Wilshere man of the match for me,this was the player we have been missing and he looked back to his old self. I hope he can take this performance forward into bigger matches ,because his energy alone will motivate the rest of the players no end.
we were fortunate with both penalties ....the first one that Cazorla got , if there was contact it was minimal , the second one when Camberlain was fouled was the correct decision ..but...it did seem like a little push on Popov by Chamberlain just before the penalty , and of course the handball by Mertsacker we got away with ..
So we ended our 4 game winless streak ...and i hope it is the start of a revival of our fortunes .
