Ray Parlour: After seven years, Arsenal now know how to park the bus


Arsenal legend Ray Parlour says it took manager Arsene Wenger seven years to understand how to win ugly.

The Frenchman came under heavy fire from furious fans after losing last November's match against Swansea City.

The Gunners were leading the game but were caught on the counter-attack after pushing forward in numbers to score a second goal.

But that was not the case against Chelsea on Sunday as they were organised throughout, especially in the second half.

"Arsenal looked a lot better prepared for the Community Shield, and had a great pre-season," Parlour is quoted as saying by the Telegraph.

"I thought Chelsea were lacking a bit of urgency. Arsene Wenger’s side had that extra spark.

"Jose Mourinho said that Arsenal stopped playing at the end, started parking the bus.

"That has been lacking for six or seven years. You have to defend as a team and they showed a lot of character by doing that."
