Arsene Wenger claims that Arsenal’s objective is to win every game.

Wenger claims that if there’s a competition or game that a football manager doesn’t want to win, then they’re finished. These comments came before Arsenal were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield, mind.

“Our objective is to win every competition. If you’re a football manager and you say you don’t want to win this competition you’re finished!,” Wenger told
“But the objective is always to combine the short term and the long term: win the next game, win the next game, win the next game, and extract the maximum potential from your group. How you measure that, nobody knows. 
“I have won league championships, FA Cups, and I sometimes felt I had done better with the potential of my team when we finished third. That’s being objective, rather than setting objectives.
“But of course the aim at the start of every season is to win every competition. It’s not easy, though. You have 20 billionaires in the Premier League and only one of them will be happy!”

Wenger has been saying more or less the same thing for years. He says he always wants to win and that he’s a terrible loser etc etc. And while I know logically that the boss doesn’t like losing any more than the fans do, it’s a little concerning to see him doing so little to change the way the team are playing, which, at the moment, is terribly.

The players looked as if they couldn’t give two hoots whether Arsenal lost on Sunday or not. It wasn’t just a bad day at the office – everyone in the office had sat back on their chairs with their arms folded cross their chests.

Some already had their resignation letter neatly typed out on their desk.

It’s a sad state of affairs. Since Wenger came to Arsenal in 1996, his win percentage is 57%. However, this season, the Gunners have won just three out of a potential nine points and the sides the boss is putting out are far from inspiring.
