This morning Arsène Wenger will dust himself down and turn his attention towards the major task which remains this season — qualifying for the Champions League.

Last week, the Frenchman saw his side knocked out of two cup competitions by late goals. It was hardly welcome but, in the build-up to the FA Cup tie at Bolton on Saturday the manager admitted that priority No 1 was the Premiership. And he believes the pursuit of fourth place will be aided by the performance of the young Arsenal outfit he sent out at the Reebok Stadium.

“We are very disappointed because we had a very difficult week,” said Wenger. “We got two knocks in four days - one on Tuesday, one on Saturday.
“It is frustrating to go out of the Carling Cup and the FA Cup in the last minute in matches but you could not say we had especially bad games. We had room enough to win it both times.
“Still I feel there are a lot of positives. The young boys showed they have character, spirit and quality. We must continue like that.
“We will fight like mad for this [Champions League] place. But at the moment we have to focus on the priorities — coming back in the Premiership for a decent position.
“And we must be inspired by the type of spirit we have seen.”

Problema la Arsenal e ca prea multi jucatori tineri joaca cu sufletul, iar cei care in mod normal joaca asa cum e normal, cu picioarele, stau pe banca-menajati sau accidentati.
Flamini, Eboue, Djourou au aratat calitati de razboinici, daruire si spirit de sacrificiu, insa o echipa incropita cu ei in teren nu poate emite pretentii la un nivel inalt. Pentru stagiile inferioare ale competitiilor domestice sunt ideali. Invingand echipe mici, ei capata moral si incredere.
Nu inteleg de ce Wenger mizeaza pe ei si in semifinale sau meciuri cu echipe de top. Aici se vede lipsa experientei, in mod normal Henry sau Pires stiu sa trateze momentele de pe final cand scorul le e favorabil.
Arsenal are meci in Liga cu Real Madrid, care pt prima oara in ultimii 3 ani a inceput sa joace fotbal. Este o echipa facil de depasit, daca in teren exista Thierry, Dennis sau Robert. In UCL trebuie sa castigi contra adversarului, nu sa-l domini. Tunarii au o serie de recorduri proaste in dublele manse disputate in ultimul deceniu. Sper sa nu se mai accidenteze nici un jucator experimentat, caci altfel nu putem emite pretentii nici la o infrangere decenta.
