Alan Pardew ‘If We’d Come In One Down We Could Have Made Arsenal Nervous’

8 years ago

Looking for positives (just for a change!!) from last night’s predictable easy win for Arsenal, Alan Pardew has claimed things could have been different of it had been just one nil at half-time, and that his team could have made Arsenal nervous.

The other big positive he took from the game was that ‘we’re unscathed for Saturday’, in terms of no further injuries.

However, watching last night’s feeble surrender, I don’t see many fans expecting great things from this same eleven players, no matter how bad Cardiff might be.

“For a long period in the first half we looked well set, we had good defensive shape, but the first goal changed the course of the game.

“Then the second goal made things comfortable for Arsenal and then we had to show real character second half, to come out here two goals down on the back of five defeats.

“We did that and we came through unscathed in terms of injuries and I think we all know we have a massive game on Saturday.

“We’ve been in the top ten all year and we are going to need to win that game.

“If we’d come in one goal down we could have made them nervous.

“We’re unscathed for Saturday though.”
