Arsene Wenger says yesterday’s 1-0 win over Man City, during which $amir Na$ri did football’s most uncanny impression of the invisible man, has prevented any talk of crisis at Arsenal.
Despite winning seven in a row before the defeat by QPR, the loss at Loftus Road was like picking at an old scab and finding some bloody, oozy bits underneath. Arsenal had to react, and did, something the boss is happy about.
“This was a very big result and we have to have another one on Wednesday against Wolves. You know how easy it is to have a crisis at a big club. If you lose you have to win again straight away and that is why I am so happy we did that.
“We have 61 points now with six games to go so overall I still think we can make a decent total. Let’s really go for that.”
And after such an impressive victory, it was put to Wenger that it might have felt like some kind of revenge as the Manchester side have shopped so frequently from us in recent seasons.
“”You can take that both ways,” he said with a smile. “Maybe they’ll now want some others.”
Maybe they will, but they can want in one hand and shit in the other, and see which gets full first.
