Gail Clichy had some harsh words for his team-mates in regards to their recent form. He’s afraid that their inconsistency could ruin the entire season!
After a thrilling win over Manchester United was followed by such a damp squib to leave Arsenal nine points behind leaders Chelsea, Clichy feels Arsenal need to improve his consistency, and called for the right “desire and attitude”. “Those are the key words in football today, being consistent and working hard as a team,” said the France defender on Arsenal TV Online.
“It was a great performance against Manchester United and if we do that every week we’ll be fine. But we did the opposite (against Villa) and we cannot work like this.
“There is time and there’s a way to go. There is time to catch and for other teams to drop points but if we play like we did (against Villa), after a few months the season will be finished.” (ESPNSoccernet)
Clichy is right, Arsenal are battling with a major consistency problem at the moment. Any team that loses to Stoke City, defeats Manchester United and then loses to Aston Villa has a deficiency. The depth and the youth at the club have been two massive issues for some time now; but for the moment it looks like a lack of consistency is the biggest issue plaguing the club.
Are Arsenal supporters concerned about the road ahead?
