Robben wants to face Gunners

Arjen Robben: Unhappy with his 10-minute cameo

Arjen Robben: Unhappy with his 10-minute cameo

Robben came off the bench to score the second goal in a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg which extended Bayern's lead at the top of the Bundesliga to 18 points, yet he was nevertheless unhappy with his 10-minute cameo appearance.

"I scored a goal and that was it," he told reporters at the VW-Arena.

"The goal was nice, but nothing else is nice.

"I'm not happy. I always want to give my all for the team, but it was a short time again."

Robben hopes coach Jupp Heynckes' decision to leave him on the bench was made in view of the trip to London on Tuesday.

"I hope that I play," he added. "But then I've had this hope many times before.

"I desperately want to play because these are the top games and I don't see any reason why I shouldn't play.

"I don't want to say too much about it. The coach knows what I think, but I am a professional and we need peace and quiet and I will discuss all the rest internally."

That decision now lies with Heynckes, who as well as recognising an argument to field Robben, must also find a reason to leave the likes of Thomas Muller or Franck Ribery out.

"You all saw the way he played - not only did he score, but he worked like he has never worked before in his career," said the Bayern coach.

"What more can a coach want? It's normal that those who aren't playing are disappointed and Arjen is a man who shows that, but I don't have any problem with that."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
