This wasn't a San Siro "hangover" just a poor poor performance. Gooners, your a credit to Arsenal.
This was a poor poor performance from Arsenal today. We looked out of sorts against a Wigan side content with putting everyone in their own half and grinding out a draw. I will take nothing away from Wigan. They set out their stall to get the point and they achieved it. They deserved the draw and will feel that they did the job........... However Arsenal didn't do their own job. There was an oppertunity here to increase the gap at the top and we haven't taken it. We blew it. It is difficult to play a team whose main concern is just to earn a point, but it's something we had to solve. We ran out of ideas and although we had a couple of decent chances we was never at the races. We made a half decent start but just faded away as the game wore on..........This game had the potential to be a banana skin on the fixture list and has proved to be right. The main thing is how do Arsenal react? We've reacted well to bad results all season and I expect the same against 'Boro next Saturday. There will be plenty of surprises in the remaining games for the title race. This is one of them, but the boys will bounce back.........Must add this. The Gooners who went today, I have one word. SUPERB. All game we did not stop singing and to take 4,000 to Wigan is brilliant. A credit to Arsenal and yourselves........KEEP IT GOONERISH!
