Tony Woodcock has defended Arsene Wenger's recent record, insisting it’s ‘not all doom and gloom at Arsenal’.
Wenger is under increasing pressure, with Saturday’s FA Cup defeat to Blackburn leaving the Champions League as the club’s last chance to end an eight-year run without a trophy.
But former Gunners star Woodcock believes the Frenchman can bring back the good times - starting against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their last 16 European clash on Tuesday night.
“It’s disappointing that Arsenal haven’t picked up any trophies over the last few years but they have been there or thereabouts on numerous occasions,” Woodcock said, speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
“Two or three years ago they had a chance of being champions of England, twice, with six games to go. Then there was losing to Birmingham in the League Cup final and being in the Champions League final.
"It's not all doom and gloom. They are not too far away. There's been a few disappointments in the last couple of years but there's a big game coming up and one game can turn things around."
