Bould feels fans' frustration

Published Add your comment

Arsenal assistant manager Steve Bould sympathised with disgruntled fans after Wednesday night's 2-0 Champions League defeat by Schalke at the Emirates Stadium.

Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Ibrahim Afellay capitalised on slack defending to score in the final 15 minutes in the Gunners' first home defeat in the group stage for nine years. Angry supporters left in their droves once Afellay had put the result beyond doubt and the few that remained booed at the final whistle.

"We've lost at home and of course they're frustrated. We are as well," Bould said. "We don't like losing football games, but we have to pick ourselves up and start again. We haven't played anything like we can - that was the big disappointment."
