Arsenal’s admits the Gunners stumble at the finish line – Premier League news
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has admitted that the Gunners have just not been good enough to end their trophy drought in the ongoing 2010-11 season.
The Dutchman’s comments come just after the Premier League giants were knocked out of three cup competitions in the space of two weeks.
It has been a terrible month for Arsenal. At the beginning of March 2011, the Gunners were in contention for a possible quadruple. They were in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and FA Cup competitions, as well as the final of the Carling Cup. However,
a string of terrible results has seen them exit all three tournaments, leaving them to fight for just the Premier League crown.
Arsenal were knocked out of the Champions League by, and they were ousted from the FA Cup by arch-rivals Manchester United. But their downward spiral started after their Carling Cup final defeat at the hands of lowly Birmingham City. The Gunners

It leaves striker Robin van Persie thinking that maybe his side cannot cope up with pressure situations.
The Dutchman said, “We always do our best at Arsenal and always want to win. On a number of occasions we have been very close but, at the last moment, it's often not good enough, that's the reality. It's very frustrating when you lose, especially as a team
when we're so close.”
He added, “But we have to look forward and now it's up to us to change all that.”
Now that the Gunners have only the Premier League title to aim for, Robin van Persie is determined not to let that prize slip away as well. The striker remains optimistic despite Arsenal’s recent disappointments, claiming that the Gunners will get back amongst
the trophies.
Van Persie said, “I firmly believe in the team, Arsenal and myself and I'm positive we will win prizes.”
Arsenal are currently in second place in the Premier League standings, 5 points behind leaders Manchester United, but crucially, with a game in hand over the Red Devils.
