I'VE MIXED feelings about Highbury. Of course I'm disappointed because even though it was Arsenal and even though it was an away match, we could have done better with a bit more conviction.
On the other hand - and these are the mixed feelings - they scored, it was just on the edge of offside and they had two chances in the first 70 minutes. I don't think Paul Robinson had a save to make in that time, so we did well. When you see their movement and passing, it was a bit better but they've been together four or five years. I'm convinced we'll do the same.
Everyone tells us, even Wenger, that we are a good team, that we play well and pass it and I think he's right. But we still need more conviction down the flanks and up front. Those are the mixed feelings I have. You can play hide and seek and say they are such a good team and if someone gives you good compliments like that you have a better feeling but to be honest I haven't because I would like us to be as good as them.
I was disappointed for the supporters because they are desperate to do something against Arsenal and I can promise we will in the future. I just want to do it now and it's not always possible. At least everything is still in our own hands.
