Wenger: It took us time to find our rhythm

Arsene Wenger says the Gunners busy schedule played a part as they came from behind to beat Stoke 3-1 at the Emirates today.

The Arsenal manager was also ‘amazed’ at referee Lee Mason awarding the visitors a penalty, although quite how anything one of the worst refs in the league does could be surprising is a mystery to us.

Still, goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi were enough to send the Gunners top of the table, and the Frenchman was happy man afterwards, looking for his team to maintain their current momentum.

“We have scored many goals this week and had an excellent run, so let’s keep the focus and keep it going on,” he told the BBC.

“We had a hesitant start, but when you play every few days sometimes it takes you time to get into a rhythm and today that is what happened.

“We got a very unlucky penalty against us because it is not even a foul in my opinion. Everybody was amazed [by the penalty] and I haven’t seen it yet but it was of course a blow for us.

“Mentally it was good for morale to get back to 1-1 before half time, we have showed great mental strength.”

Now let’s keep the rhythm

Lol. Wenger hasn’t seen it yet but it was not even a foul in his opinion. Head scratcher there. I love football


I think he meant he has not seen the replay, but when he first saw it, he thought it was not a foul.


Crap penalty and Stoke were on a good run. So we did very well.

Man City losing two in a row is great, Everton weren’t any great shakes today. Keep our current form and we have a chance against both.


YOu look at Pep lauded by the media and contrast with Wenger. 47m for Stones who was poor and frankly overrated versus HOlding for how much again? Where’s the depth in City’s defense. YOu look at Mustafi (versus Mangala now gone and how much they spent on that Frenchman) You look at our subs at Cback now with Gabriel and hOlding AND Per backing up Koscielny and Mustafi. YOu look at our variety of options up top with Alexis but also a more direct approach with Giroud, maybe Lucas developing, Welbeck to come. Coty have no sledgehammer to knock down… Read more »


Again its a question of management of resource. Fans are simplistic and merely react to who played well the last game. Wenger needs to consider fitness levels and also get the squad in sync to various players coming in and out of the squad so it doesn’t matter eventually who we put in or take out. Just like the old days when we would continue from where we left off despite squad changes. Its starting to feel like those old days again with plenty of goals in the squad. We are TOP OF THE LEAGUE. WENGER OUT!Clearly he panic buys… Read more »

Whats that media? You can’t write anything bad about Wenger at the moment? Nevermind, avail yourselves talking shit about……. contract negotiations. Cha clats


Why is Bould looking at me like that? It’s kind of scary.


Damn. Those three dudes in the picture looks scary af. Like I would piss myself if I had to face them and explain why I stamp on Alexis.


I’m convinced Santori must be Arsene Wenger in disguise. Just as Duncan Castles must be Mourinho’s alter ego
