Video: Arsenal 1-1 Atletico Madrid – Wenger press conference

Arsene Wenger spoke to the press after the 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at the Emirates on Thursday night.

Sadly the manager’s final European game at home didn’t end with the win we wanted, and conceding the late equaliser really feels like a kick in the nuts.

Here’s what he had to say.

Fuck these spineless weak players, I hope they all fuck off next season disregarding maybe 5 players. Old players need to fuck off, Koscienly has been unreal for us over the years, this season looks like his achilles or age is hampering his ability to perform and is making stupid rookie mistakes. Xhaka and Mustafi are obviously nowhere near good enough, Monreal has never been a good defender, and never will be, so sick of hearing he’s the most underrated player in the league, he’s a headless chicken that only performs when everyone around him does, and I couldn’t care… Read more »


I could call you a moron but that would be too kin


Maybe I was emotional last night and I’d put it in a better way, but disregard the language, everything I said was spot on. Since I’m a moron and you’re such a genius, explain what points were wrong. If you’re happy being in Europa, great but I don’t enjoy seeing my club in a decline. Atletico went down to 10 men in the first 9 minutes, we absolutely dominated, had over 20 shots on target but could only score 1. They get dominated, but hang on, believe in their selves and defend. One long ball over the top and we… Read more »


So err just for clarification you following Wenger where he goes or are you done with him as well?

Close the door on the way out.

We played OK, but it really gets to me that their defenders stood tall against some pretty decent attacking play from us with only 10 on the pitch and a roaring home crowd, while our defenders conceded a goal as tame and unnecessary as that. Rahhhhhhh.

We all want him to have this trophy as a parting present and get us back in the CL but tonight’s performance summarized this team’s philosophy. Attack attack, lose chances, lose the ball when the team is unbalanced, get caught 1 on 1 with a long through ball and the rest are known…Wenger is actually being punished for his own philosophy ? it was a great chance to get a 2-0 with us in Spain…


We should get a trophy for dominating possession and having a lot of chances.


People faulting the gaffer for not having enough “game management” when we were against 10 men. Truth is we lack options on the bench. We surrendered our plan B when we (not Wenger I’m sure) decided to let go of Giroud and instead load up a cup tied striker from Germany. I said it back then we were risking it since even then, it looked pretty obvious this was potentially going to be the main route back in. Sure Bellerin and MOnreal were good today taking on players but that is exactly the problem, we need our fullbacks to come… Read more »


What matters now is to go to the Wanda Nara 🙂 stadium and get the right result.

We can still do it.


When even Wenger looks pissed with the defending you know you were below shocking. Mustafi and Koscielny are an absolute shambles right now. Ruined what would have been a great performance with an ok result..Now its a great performance and a fuck up with a terrible result. How do you concede to a team that is actively trying to shut up shop. Also why does Bellerin have license to go absolutely awol (everywhere BUT right back) but deliver so little..gets into good delivery positions about 50 times a match …You might get 4 half decent deliveries. Actually felt for Wenger…In… Read more »


boy, the new manager has got his work cut out when he takes over, plus he has got to buy SIX class players for fifty million, though he should get a few million from the sale of ozil, good luck who ever you are


well, that’s Enrique out of the running for the arsenal job, he wants two hundred million to rebuild arsenal
