Arsenal were beaten by Watford on Saturday and now sit nine points behind leaders Man City

Sunday, October 15, 2017

Tony Cascarino has ripped into Arsenal following their 2-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday evening.

The former Millwall and Chelsea forward was speaking to the Weekend Sports Breakfast and called the Gunners a soft club from top to bottom.

Tom Cleverley scored an injury time winner to down Arsene Wenger’s side and send the Hornets into the top four after eight matches.

Troy Deeney’s penalty had earlier cancelled out Per Mertesacker’s opener, and the Gunners never really convinced despite heading to Watford without a defeat at Vicarage Road in 30 years.

Arsenal have now picked up just one point from four away matches in 2017-18, and they are already nine points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Criticism of Wenger and his players was renewed following the final whistle, and Cascarino joined in on Sunday morning.

“That club is soft from top to bottom,” Cascarino said on the Weekend Sports Breakfast. “I look at it and I see a soft club from the very top of the club, where I think big brutal decisions have to be made – and that doesn’t happen. I see it from the management and Arsene Wenger.”

“Look, it wasn’t a penalty yesterday – that was never a pen for me – but that wasn’t the reason why the outcome was 2-1. I totally agree with Troy Deeney [who said Arsenal lacked the ‘cojones' needed to win].

“That goal at the end typified Arsenal, how vulnerable they were, and Watford seized on that.”
