Arsenal Message Board
Yeah right..... i strongly disagree with professor Wenger. From what i see when arsenal play, they look like a bunch of headless chickens when it come to defending. i wish this guy would stop being in denial and get a defensive coach to work on the defense. We need to learn how to defend step pieces as well as attacking. We are also very poor when it comes to zonal marking remember blackburn. Plus if the work on the defense every day, where is it that we also look very nervous at the back. E.G the two own goals scored against rovers. Here a question for you guys. When was the last time arsenal scored a goal from a corner kick?
I think not scoring from corner kicks is a fault of the attack rather than the defence.
This criticism has gone rather over the top. It is surely impossible for Arsenal *not* to be working on their defence. If they are practising attack the whole time how can they do that without having a defence to spar with? They presumably aren't hiring in a defence from Tottenham whilst their defence sits down with a tray of pork pies.

That is exactly what has crossed my mind as to what actually goes on.
Wenger getting the kids to defend. That way the senior defenders don't get hurt, and the attackers feel great that they scored easily.
Makes sense when you see the bewilderment on their faces when they lose at the weekend.
How did that happen!?
I will up close and personal to it tomorrow though.
