I'll tell you who cares about Wigan away. Me.
This is disgraceful. The lack of professionalism in our squad is absolutely appalling. To concede three goals in 10 some odd minute is shocking. Especially to a team like Wigan, who have gotten good results against Chelsea and Liverpool previously in the season but are a team battling relegation not one that should be any threat to our title hopes.
Granted we didn´t have much chance of winning the title before the weekend, needing two Chelsea losses and a draw, AND for United to drop some points too. Now we're out of it. United and Chelsea are not going to drop points in every game for the rest of the season. Although I would have said we wouldn't either, but from yesterday's performance anything is possible.
We took a two-nil lead and threw it away. Fabianski again made a shocking error. Fair enough he was under pressure from Bramble and Rodallega I think, but to drop a floated cross right onto the head of a Wigan player three yards out is horrendous.
I cannot be scathing enough, I'm only glad I didn't watch the whole match and only had to watch the six-minute MOTD highlights. Wenger called it the most disappointing defeat of the season and that is without a doubt the case. LINK .
There is no shame in losing to Barcelona, they are best of the best. There is no shame in losing to Chelsea, they are also top class. There is no shame (apart from damaged pride) in losing to Spurs, because they have been in great form and they were at home for a derby game.
Obviously you don't want to lose these games but you can still walk out of the ground with your head held high because on the day you have lost to a better team.
Well Wigan are shit, and it is disgraceful that a team who sells more players than they buy every year it seems can compete with a team with Arsenal´s wage structure and transfer kitty after having gone 2-0 down.
You are looking for Sol Campbell and Silvestre to rally the troops, close up shop, and, not to repeat myself, be professional. That was a s**tshow and the defending for the first and last goals was terrible. The first goal we look terrified, all these kids backpedalling, leaving their markers, some defenders trying to play them offside, other ones jogging back. It was a real mess.
Then for the third one, we've let a player with only one leg keep going left, and three experienced defenders get clumped together and let the Frenchie thump it in.
I can't really write much more today I´ve gotta get back to work, but I just wanted you all to feel my anger.
One thing that is interesting to note is that Fran Merida came on the pitch, he hasn't played in months. I was certain he was off to Atletico, perhaps a last Arsenal appearance, or perhaps he hasn't signed any agreement yet. Let's see. He's a nice little player, but I don't think he´ll ever be good enough for Arsenal.
I'm going to go drink some sour milk to get this disgusting taste of defeat out of my mouth.
