There is not much you can say after the agonising 6-0 defeat to Chelsea, especially as it was Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game as manager.
The Frenchman didn’t come out for the post-match press conference, but he finally spoke to the BBC before leaving Stamford Bridge. Here is his statement, and he is obviously not very happy.
“This defeat is my fault, I take full responsibility for it.” Wenger said. “I don’t think there’s too much need to talk about the mistakes we made. We got a good hiding today.
“It’s one of the worst days in my career. It’s over after 20 minutes and it’s a long game after that. You don’t prepare all week to experience that kind of experience.”
“It leaves it the title chances in a very bad situation,”
“But we want to respond. We had two difficult away games as Tottenham and Chelsea.
“If we had played two draws we’d have two points. Having won one we have three points.
“But today is a huge disappointment, of course. When you don’t turn up in a game of this stature – nobody takes that easy.”
A huge disappointment is an understatement! Where do we go from here?

I think we have to change everything. For a team like Arsenal, this is just like relegation.
For all the times we refused to buy players, whether in the summer or winter transfer periods. When we finally got someone, he was already injured. For all the lack of adequate backup. For all the dependence on youth which has not paid off. For all the penny pinching by Wenger. For all the lack of strategy. Therefore, we have to start fresh. Wenger has become old and stale, we need fresh blood. Wenger should not sign his extension and walk away with any shred of dignity left.
Where to go from here? To strasboug of course and when you are at it take that whoring player you call a striker enough is enough
With wenger arsenal can forget winning any thing just watch it with wigan in fa semi .it goes without saying when other clubs reinforce wenger goes for injured cheap players.why is the board allowing him this free line there must be an inquest and heads must roll .wenger’s head to be first gasidiz and the stupid majority holder should pack and leave now the fans should boycot the emirates until wenger leaves
