What a terrible 11 days for Arsenal and Mr Wenger in particular, after the challenge on four fronts, the brilliant football plaudits and the exciting young squad, Arsenal have sank.
They say there are no easy games in football, but for Arsenal they must of surely hoped for at least a victory last night. However their style of football and the substance of creativity let the side down again. Arsenal for three seasons have been one of the most exciting teams to watch yet they regularly fail to score the scrappy goals. A recent example of total football being a success to watch yet a failure is Holland, stunning match after stunning match put the Dutchmen at the pinnacle of football yet failure to ever grasp the World Cup left a bitter taste among many of the Dutch public.
For Arsenal to win trophies, maybe they need to be more complete and less "total".
