'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arsenal boss slams Wolves

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has slammed Wolves for their team selection against Manchester United.

Wenger very rarely needs a reason to complain about things, so it's hardly surprising to read his views on Wolves team selection.

'We will have to compete with Manchester United over 37 games instead of 38,' Wenger told the BBC.

'I believe it is a problem for the international credibility of the Premier League, but it is not my problem, it is a Premier League problem.'

However Wolves next opponents Burnley were actually much more understanding with manager Owen Coyle adding: 'Mick McCarthy is an outstanding manager and fantastic man, somebody I have a lot of time for.

'He has done a fantastic job at Wolves and does what he sees fit for Wolverhampton.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Perhaps if Arsenal had picked up the win against Burnley he would have been in a better mood for the post match press conference?

This is an ill informed article responding to the headlines and not really bothering to find out what was said or the context in which it was said. Rather than being in a bad mood his remark was really just a good humoured poke at ManU. Wenger knows about fielding weaker sides having put out the youngest team ever to appear in the CL in our last encounter. Don't believe the sensationalised reports - watch the press conference for yourself and decide whether he was really slamming Wolves: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1236563/VIDEO-Arsenal-boss-Arsene-Wenger-blasts-Wolves-wrecking-Premier-League-credibility-Manchester-United-farce.html?ITO=1490
Amos.
I've seen the comments on Sky Sports News thanks. No matter what context he was giving his view in, there are very few ways you can view the comment: 'I believe it is a problem for the international credibility of the Premier League'.

Take anything in isloation and you can take any view you want to if that's what you want to do but join it all up and what he's saying is that it isn't a problem for him but it might affect the way that some outside the league view the competition. The bigger problem he claims is the way fixtures are arranged. Compared to some of the criticism of McCarthy's actions on this very site, including your own, what Wenger is saying is really quite mild. You've 'slammed' McCarthy far harder than Wenger has done.
Amos.
The difference there Amos is that I doubt very few people care about my view on the subject, where as they may be more interested in what Arsene Wenger has said.
Akela
All the more reason for you to want to reflect what was said more accurately than the gutter press then. Don't underestimate the power of blogosphere - your voice will be heard somewhere! Certainly heard quite clearly in the cheap side of North London at the weekend - much to our delight.
Amos.
In regards to Spurs you may find a thread on our forum to include some interesting debate..
Akela
In regards to Wenger, it's more down to a persons own interpretation of what Wenger said rather than reporting accurately. His comment 'I believe it is a problem for the international credibility of the Premier League', is slamming Wolves, be it his own opinion on whether Wolves are weakening the credibility of the league, or whether he believes others will see it that way.
Akela
Absolutely lucridous, the way you approached the game. I agree with Wenger on this one (Heaven forbid!!!)

Well Done Mick McCarthy I say...! 1st XI were exhausted and the confidence was given a boost at White Hart Lane...... So why send them out at 80% and watch the cofidence drain away again????? Like Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea & all other teams we have a squad, if the squad needs rotating then so be it! As for McCarthy putting a "Weaker" team out - Well on paper yes, but in terms of stamina and fitness levels at the time I believe that he did put out the "Stronger" team. WTID

Typical Wenger moan moan moan. Just cos he can't win the league anymore. Sad and very bitter. That said, what the hell was McCarthy thinking with this selection. Idiot.
