Gooner Gaffer happy with draw

Having suffered a 1-0 reverse last season at SJP Arsene Wenger was happy to come away from SJP with a point after the Easter Monday game. Ignoring snide comments that his seemingly selective vision allowed him to view the match, Le Gaffer de Gooners quipped:

"We wanted to win the game and we could have maybe nicked a 1-0, but they saved one on the line and they could have scored as well at the end. Both teams had good defensive performances and it was a game of few chances. For us, after three defeats it was important not to lose, and maybe it could be a good point at the end of the season. We have to be satisfied with a point, but I am disappointed it was not three. If we had got the first goal we would have won the game.

I thought we started slowly and gave them too much respect. But at half-time I thought we should have been ahead. It would have been an injustice if we had got the goal late on and won the game. We were not scared to play and we played well. But they made it tight in midfield and you could see 22 bodies out there that were tired.

They were a bit jaded, but we had a physical game with West Ham on Saturday, and maybe we lacked a little sharpness in the final third. We lacked creativity, but the spirit was fantastic. When you are a bit tired and you do not score as many goals as you want, your confidence goes a little bit. Even a 0-0 draw is not a bad result for us today, after our recent disappointments and the way our confidence has suffered.'

Howay, Wenger being humble? Not his style that.
