Arsenal have recently shown how unpredictable they are, From comfortably beating AC Milan in the San Siro and looking like the best team in Europe to the woeful performance away to Wigan.
In my opinion the reason behind this is that certain Arsenal players find it hard to raise there game to the lesser sides. Its quite easy to get yourself motivated for a game in front of 80.000,but on a cold wet muddy playing surface away to sides like Wigan and Boro we have not shown the same desire.
Why is that? Do the Arsenal players feel they just have to turn up at sides mentioned above and win automatically? At times this season we have seen both sides of Arsenal ( The Jekyll And Hyde ) But for us to go on and achieve something this season we really need to show the same commitment as the AC Milan game.
This is why I hope we draw a big club in the Champions league. Like last season vs PSV we didn’t turn up as most thought the win was in the bag, This is the problem we have with lesser sides. We don’t show them enough respect.
Wenger really needs to fire up the players for every game and not just the so called big games in Europe. From now until the end of the season we should treat every game as if it was vs AC Milan.
Otherwise we are in danger of yet another season that looked so promising but ended trophyless
