Arsene Wenger talked to Arsenal TV Online today, and while he admitted he didnâ€™t know exactly what was going on inside the Newcastle United club, the pressure on Sam Allardyce seemed somewhat unfair, at least from the outside.
Arsene Wenger – thinks Sam Allardyce needs more time at Newcastle
Speaking today about the pressure on the beleaguered Sam Allardyce at Newcastle Arsene Wenger said in an interview with Arsenal TV Online:
“It is a bit harsh, but firstly I don’t know if it is true and secondly I don’t know what is really going on inside the club.â€ “But if the speculations you talk about are true then as he has just been appointed it is surprising.”
“You can’t talk about them because you don’t know exactly the atmosphere inside the club.â€
“For me Newcastle has big support every time you go up there and you feel there is a great potential within the club – of course, in order to turn things round you need time.”
It was only last season that Wenger was himself under some pressure because his youngsters lost too many games. It looked like they had a bunch of very good players but without the experience necessary to win games. But Wenger has stuck to his beliefs, and his Arsenal today are a wonderful side to watch. They have to be favorites to take the title from Manchester United this year, although it will be a good tussle between the top four clubs this year.
Where Wenger finds all his players is a bit of a mystery â€“ but maybe Sam can get some hints on some of his up-and-coming players, over a good strong glass of wine, after the game tomorrow. Just a thought.Â Â Â 😀
