"Eh we must trust these young players they are so mature"

“I don’t think we are weak defensively but we are an offensive team,” said Wenger. “Sometimes that exposes our defenders a bit more than other teams.

“I believe we have quality defenders. One is Thomas Vermaelen and he did not play last year.

“In open play, we were one of the better defences [last season] but we conceded too many goals on set-pieces and that is where we want to improve this season.”

Here are some of the quotes used from as said by Wenger in his press conference today in China for the second part of the Asia Tour. These are massive statements from Wenger stating he doesnt feel his defence is weak at all, can someone tell me is he blind to the fact that we conceded the most goals out of the top 4 this year including over 50% of them being from set-pieces, yes Wenger we do need to improve on defending set-pieces and the way to do that is to buy a top quality tall centre back who is capable of Marking ans well as Heading the ball out.

Thats it for now.
Yours Goonerly.
