Is Wrighty being unfair to table topping Arsenal?


You would think that every Arsenal fan in the world would have been delighted after yesterday’s round of games in the Premier League, with the Gunners showing the grit, desire and determination to come back from the setback of going behind to Stoke City from the penalty spot.

Arsenal showed great skill as well as a winning mentality to get that third goal that took us above Chelsea in the Premier League table, but as Metro reports our former striker Ian Wright was not sounding very positive when asked about it on Match of the Day last night.

The TV pundit and Arsenal fans said, ‘Not really at this particular time,’ Wright said on Match of the Day of his happiness at being top.

‘I want to see that in May.’

Wrighty went on to suggest that most of the Arsenal squad were not giving enough to make him believe we can be champions and he feels that they all need to start showing the same sort of desperate desire to win that we see every week from our Chile international star Alexis Sanchez.

He went on, ‘What’s got to happen is people have to get to the same levels, I’m not saying the same ability as Sanchez, but the same output in respect of wanting to do it and wanting to win it.

‘I think Arsenal have got a good chance if they do that.’

Of course I would like to see every Arsenal player doing what Sanchez does, but is Wrighty not being a bit harsh on the lads here? We have Walcott playing better than ever, Giroud doing a great job as a super sub, Coquelin bossing things in the middle, Ozil scoring more than ever, Xhaka starting to really look the part and the back four and keeper forming a solid defensive unit.

Do the whole team deserve more credit than Wright is giving them?

  1. I agree with Wright in the sense that ,what will be of us when we face Man City without for example Carzola or the just Mustafi. We need to a point whereby even if we do not get a direct replacement for a player,we don’t miss him. but at the moment we are far from that and we need every single player to play each game like a final.
