Wenger, Benitez, Ferguson; all three of these moan meisters were present at Anfield yesterday and the post match comments from sore loser Rafa Benitez, and even more sore loser Arsene Wenger, after the Liverpool-Arsenal game were always going to stir up trouble. The Daily Mail reports that Wenger, in jubilant mood after getting a point at Anfield, opted to launch a challenge to the third (present in the directors’ box) member of this sore-losing, moany triumvirate by warning Sir Alex Concave-Balls that when Manchester United visit the Emirates next Saturday, they’ll face a gonad-achingly tough challenge. Wenger said:
“It will be another test against United but I can say for sure we will go into it even stronger after this performance and result, we will be much stronger. It is still early in the season but maybe we have convinced a few more people that we can last the pace.”
Wenger didn’t appear keen to join in the moan symposium yesterday, and instead seemed bloody chuffed. Wenger said:
“I am so pleased with the performance and attitude of the players. This was their first big test of the season and I was delighted how strong they looked. There was no sign of the handbrake being on, no restrictions about how we played. It was just another great combination of good technical quality and movement and I couldn’t fault it. The players are continuing to grow together. Compared to last season, they have greater belief and are more mature as a team.”
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez didn’t let the side down though, and pulled a classic injury moan from his extensive collection. Benitez moaned:
“We don’t know for sure that Xabi has broken the bone, but it looks like the same injury. We’ll know more about how long the two will be out after a few more days. Arsenal are a sharp, confident team and I thought my players’ commitment was excellent.”
Not a good moan effort from Wenger, but more than made up for my Rafa’s pouting visage upon the final whistle, we await next weeks moan-in with baited breath.
