Sparky Puzzled By Wenger's Ungracious Comment

Following the 3-0 Arsenal thrashing on Saturday, Manchester City boss Mark Hughes was slightly puzzled as to why Arsene Wenger said City did not deserve to win by three.

@rsehole Whinger strikes again. I just went over the highlights again and as Alan Hansen said in the Torygraph, it could have been 6-0. You will never see Wenger come out and say "we have been well beaten." At least he faces the press post game when he loses, unlike Taggart who sends out his assistant.

Just what you would expect from whingeing Wenger.

I never like to make a total judgement on a game I haven't watched fully based on highlights, but Wenger is talking out of his derry-air here. I think Arsenal's problems are mounting and the first step to dealing with any problem is admitting it - in this case, admit they were well beaten and move on.

I wouldn't take it too seriously, Wenger will know we were deservedly beaten. Hughes should have more experience and knowledge than tot ake it so personally, Wenger prizes loyalty above all else and he will never criticise his players in public. What people have to be smart enough to realise is that what a manager says to the press and what he actually thinks are often mutually exclusive. It wasn't the slagging off of City Hughes has made it out to be, he is just trying to protect his players from the criticism.

'City were flattered by that score' - let's hope Taggart is saying that on Sunday as well!
