In 115 years, English Premier League staple Arsenal has never suffered a loss like this. Yesterday, their nightmares became reality, as they lost 8-2. To make matters worse, the loss came at the hands of their bitter rivals: Manchester United.
“You feel humiliated when you concede eight goals,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. “It was a terrible day for us, it was a combination of an under-strength team and weakness.”
This weakness is something that Arsenal knows all too much about as of late. Allowing eight goals (three of which came at the hands of polarizing forward Wayne Rooney) is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problems surrounding the storied club. Earlier this month, team captain Cesc Fabregas left the Arsenal to play in his hometown team Barcelona of the Spanish League. The club also lost Samir Nasri to a place where he could hurt his former club: Manchester City. Defections are something that Arsenal has become accustomed to since loosing Thierry Henry years ago to Real Madrid.
