The Other Side: Arsene Wenger. (Rovs 1-2 Arsenal)
Updated Sunday, 29th August 2010
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was happy with his sides win over Blackburn at Ewood Park but had to admit his side were nervous in the first half.
Wenger had done nothing but moan about sides like Rovers and Stoke who both know that football is supposed to be a man’s game.
But Wenger was worried about the game that was played last season in the Premier League at Ewood Park.
Wenger said: "We had a good start but in my opinion we were too nervous dealing with the game of Blackburn. Who would not be unsettled by the kind of game Blackburn gave us today?
"Last year we had bad memories here and because we knew they would play the kind of game we don't like we had not enough confidence to deal with that.
"In the second half I felt we were calmer. We put the ball well on the ground and controlled it better and it was just a question of time. We had the right resilience and commitment."
