    Wenger - "We would have been worthy winners"

    In his post match interview he has claimed they would have been worthy winners today.

    Speaking after his side were beaten by a Matt Ritchie winner at the Gallowgate End, Wenger said: “It’s a bit like the story of the season.

    “We had 70 per cent of the ball.

    “We are 1-0 up and in the end you lose 2-1 and you wonder how we lost the game.


    “That’s what happened today.

    “It could have been over at half-time, we concede two goals from nowhere.

    “In the second half I feel some players paid a bit physically from having the game on Thursday night in Moscow.

    “We came back Friday morning.

    “Overall we played with good spirit but a bad result is the outcome.

    “We have to live with that. It’s very disappointing, I feel it’s very hard to swallow a defeat like that.”

    Wenger was then asked if his side lacked character, he responded: “I do not want to go to definite conclusions today"
    .

    I'm sorry but what. . . I know Wenger is known for never seeing things and they are always "hard done by" but come on. . .

    From what i saw and listened to, no way could it "have been over" by half-time and in the 2nd half there was going to be only one winner.

    they were the better team for the opening 20 mins, but in the end, the team that deserved to win, won!

    They had a lot of posession but they weren´t really dangerous with it. Shame Kenedy hit the bar - that would´ve killed the game.

    He really said that???

    What a fucking bellend!

    We absolutely deserved our win. How many saves did Dubravka have to make? We had opportunities too and actually looked more dangerous on the attack.

    Sheesh. Sour grapes, man.

    Really looking forward to Match of the Day although I suspect they'll put Man U on first.

    even the arsenal supporters said they didn't deserve to win, citing what an easy match our goalie had, because they just didn't have anything up fromt

    Ha, exactly! They don't live in the real world, do they?

    2 of the brightest and most sought-after attacking talents in Europe but they've got nowt up front...

    Wenger always has a bitter taste in his mouth. I think he sucks too many lemons.

    I actually quite like him to be fair.

    I can't believe their fans can go on the way they do about him...

    I wish we'd been as Shiite as them for the past 21yrs.

    I like him too and I admire what he has achieved and the way he has done it as opposed to the likes of Chelski and Citeh but I wish he would smile now and again and have some sort of a sense of humour.

    I really like Wenger too. He still holds the greatest achievement of any manager in the Premier League ('03/'04).

    I'm happy he's always stood up to Mourinho with all his cr@p.

    If I were an Arsenal fan (not a chance in hell), I'd have never gone on the anti-Wenger bandwagon like the worst of them, but I probably would've felt that the time has come for a change now.

    When he does go, I´d love it if they collapsed soonafter, just so they finally realised how good he was.

    I can actually see this happening but, even more, I can see him being very successful at a different club.

    We can all rue all kinds of stuff in the course of a match but the end result is who scores more. We scored 2 and they scored 1.
    None of our goals were controversial and bothy goals were well worked good goals, just like their goal was.
    Unfortunately for them we scored more and got 3 points as a reward.

    I don't mind him - just couldn't believe what he said.

    I do think he looked old though, very old and ill. For his own health (mental more i think) i think he needs to leave Arsenal.

    I agree, it's probably time for him to go, but ALL REAL Arsenal fans should be eternally greatfull for what the man has done for them.
