阿森纳的幸运13

Lucky 13 for Arsenal

  Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger celebrated his thirteenth year in charge of the club last week, making him the club's longest-serving manager.

  They say the number 13 is unlucky for some.

  But any worries that his luck may have run out were soon dispelled as Arsenal produced a stunning performance to brush aside Blackburn on Sunday, crushing them 6-2.

  Wenger said after the victory: “Our culture is about going forward and scoring goals… this Arsenal team can go as far as they want.”

  When he says this team can go as far as they want, he means they can achieve as much success as they want.

  Although the final scoreline was very convincing, Blackburn started strongly and went ahead twice, before Arsenal ran riot in the second half.

  Our culture is about going forward and scoring goals… this Arsenal team can go as far as they want.

  Goals came from a variety of sources, with everyone from defender Vermaelen to more familiar names like Van Persie and Fabregas getting on the scoresheet for Arsenal.

  Blackburn keeper Paul Robinson was kept busy all afternoon, and his boss Sam Allardyce said after the game:

  "Paul Robinson pulled off some really good saves. We could have conceded more than six goals."

  To pull off means to achieve something difficult.

  Despite the result, Allardyce was gracious in defeat and paid tribute to Wenger for what he has done since he arrived at Arsenal in 1996.

  "To football, Wenger has given a tremendous amount," he said. To football, Wenger has given a tremendous amount. Sam Allardyce, Blackburn manager

  Allardyce also praised Wenger's preference for nurturing and training young players through his youth academy, rather than making big-money purchases of famous players.

  "He has showed everyone how to find young talent and develop it through their system.

  "We would all like to say we have 25% of our players from our academy, but he has 80-90% of his side through their academy."

  One player who benefitted from Arsene Wenger's guidance was French striker Thierry Henry, who enjoyed a fruitful period at the club.

  Henry, who now plays for Barcelona in Spain, made the journey to London to watch the game and also sang the praises of the Arsenal boss:

  "It's tremendous and amazing and he deserves to be where he is. He's the right man here."

  The result moves Arsenal up into fourth place in the table, while Blackburn are in 16th position.

  Chelsea went top after beating rivals Liverpool 2-0, while Manchester United dropped to second after a 2-2 draw with Sunderland.
