Arsene Wenger described Arsenal’s loss to Watford as ‘strange’ following our 2-1 defeat.
We were knocked out to a team we, with all due respect, should have beaten. The performance itself was bizarre and Wenger’s comments post-match didn’t do anything to put out the flames of fans’ fury. The boss claimed that we should have won and although he gave credit to Watford, it’s getting a little boring to hear the same excuses over and over again.
Wenger himself seemed calm. Not agitated or upset as you might expect, which only serves as another annoyance. Of course the boss cares. He cares more than any of us. However, it’s hard to listen to him regurgitating line after line of rehearsed, media-friendly schpiel.
