GROW UP GUN­NERS! Weng blasts im­ma­ture Ars

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By MIKE Mc­GRATH

ARSENE WENGER branded his side too naive af­ter watch­ing them stum­ble to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Wolves.

The French­man could only look on help­lessly from the touch­line as the Gun­ners missed the chance to break into the top four.

“It is very frus­trat­ing,” he said. “You won’t play many draws like that in a sea­son but some­times it can hap­pen.

“We still lack a bit of ma­tu­rity. The way I have seen the game to­day, it will be one draw out of 50 – but it was that one to­day.”


Wenger was fuming af­ter yet an­other penalty de­ci­sion went against his side.

Gun­ners play­ers in­sisted Wolves de­fender Christophe Berra had han­dled in the sec­ond half.

Ref Stu­art At­twell’s de­ci­sion not to give a spot-kick came nine days af­ter Wenger felt his side were robbed of a spot-kick at Manch­ester City.

“It looks like for us to get a penalty you have to fight very hard,” added Wenger. “I saw the Manch­ester City hand­ball and it was def­i­nitely hand­ball.

“I’m per­son­ally re­spon­si­ble for the per­for­mance of my team, but not of the ref­eree.”

Wenger in­sisted his side should have beaten Wolves de­spite the ap­peal be­ing turned down by blun­der ref At­twell.

They had taken the lead through Gerv­inho but Steven Fletcher lev­elled be­fore the break.

At­twell also dis­missed Ne­nad Mil­i­jas for a tackle on Mikel Arteta.

Wolves boss Mick Mc­carthy, when asked if was a red card, said: “Not while I’ve got a hole in my bum!”
