Having watched his side play like (insert something shit here) and then seen them come back like (insert something good here) before nearly throwing a hard fought point away with more (insert something shit here) defending, Arsene Wenger said his side were both good and bad during the 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
The boss, who cuts an increasingly muted figure on the touchline these days as his side strut their suicidal stuff, told media after the game that he thinks his squad is actually pretty nifty, except when they have to play real games in high pressure situations…you know, like they do every few days at the moment.
“The squad is top, top level for me and I think we have to learn to trust these players and keep faith in them,” he told media after the game.
“We have signed a bunch of top English players who have committed to the club for the next five years. We have to keep faith in them.
“They are frustrated because we have not won the game. But we came back and there is a certain feeling that they did their job and have given everything. But at the same time you want to win football games so they are frustrated.”
Reflecting on the usual two contrasting halves, he continued:
“We didn’t give out big security tonight defensively but on the other hand, when you see what the spirit is in the team, and what the quality [is] going forward, you smell that something can always happen at any moment when you combine like we do.
“In the second half, we have put a fantastic effort in. We know what we can improve, and we want to keep the positives that we have shown tonight in the game.”
Before also giving a very odd reason as to why his defence isn’t performing as it should: “Because they want to do well and they want to win games. The games have massive importance for them and that’s why – because they want to do so well.”
Asked about whether he’ll try and improve the squad in the next 24 hours, the boss said, “I cannot promise that but we will work on it.”
