Shock horror! Can you believe that Arsene Wenger has actually admitted that the Arsenal players were at fault for allowing Swansea to come back twice to beat the Gunners today?
Normally he would wheel out the complaints about the referee or blame tiredness due to the (fixed) fixture list, but with very little option but to face the facts, he has actually told the truth for a change.
Of course he had to mention that Swansea shouldn’t have had a penalty but listen to what he said after that: “I still don’t understand where the referee found the penalty (for Swansea’s equaliser), then we defensively made some mistakes that we should not have done.
“When it was back at 2-2 we knew we could score a third but it was important not to make a mistake. But in the last games we have made mistakes that are difficult to explain. It is unbelievable, it happened at Fulham the same and again today.”
What is they say at Alcoholics Anonymous? You first have to admit you have a problem before you can fix it. Okay well Wenger has finally got past Stage One. So what is he going to do to fix it?
