Ailing Arsenal loses for 4th time in 5 Premier League games

Ailing Arsenal loses for 4th time in 5 Premier League games

A 3-1 loss to the Baggies was not on the agenda at all, and now Arsene Wenger has invited even more pressure on his shoulders by failing to negotiate his way past Tony Pulis' men.

The Arsenal defenders angrily pointed out to referee Swarbrick that the Irishman was in an offside position when the ball rolled into the net, but the match officials ruled that he was not interfering with play. "We were guilty especially on the second goal but they score against anybody from set pieces".

The third and final goal came from some more nightmare defending on a corner.

At the end of the day, the board is the one to blame for the current situation at Arsenal and the one that has been going on and on for the past several years. It's mental errors like that that have put Arsenal in its slump.

The plane flied on the sky right during the game Arsenal had with West Brom.

Albion are now seven points clear in eighth place, and Pulis thinks his tight-knit squad has done wonders.

Asked whether some supporters' actions in urging him to quit were disrespectful towards a manager who has brought nine major trophies to the club, including three Premier League titles, Wenger said: "I don't know".

Wenger has promised to reveal if he intends to stay "very soon", but after this excruciating afternoon he said finishing outside the Premier League's top four would have no bearing on his future. His future has been a question hanging over the club for some time, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

But watching Wenger's pre-match interview back, it would seem that he did actually highlight his opponent's main danger, but didn't do a thing to prevent it from coming back to bite him.

But the uncertainty surrounding Wenger has spread throughout the squad. Players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil may leave the club, with Wenger in charge, but could be persuaded to stay, with a change in management. Nevertheless, it's all pretty embarrassing to see that both have had to resort to these measures as surely it will only serve to arm their rivals with ammunition to taunt and mock them further...
