Gunners must shape up, Graham warns

Former Arsenal manager George Graham believes Arsene Wenger`s faith in his young players is misplaced and that he needs leaders in his team.

On the eve of the north London derby against Tottenham, the former Gunners player and boss claims the fans will not accept four years of failure.

He said: 'When you`ve reached the heights that they`ve reached, the success they`ve had, the fans don`t want success in two years` time. Last season reaching the [Champions League] final gave the fans something to hang on to.

'If they drift out of the FA Cup as well, they`re not really challenging - and fans don`t like it. Fans will not accept four years of failure.'

He added: 'He`s trying to protect the young players. They all know they`re under-performing.

'They have lost Ashley Cole, Sol Campbell, Lauren, Patrick Vieira, Edu, Robert Pires, Dennis Bergkamp. Don`t try to tell me they`re going to replace them with kids and get the same results.

'I don`t think they lack hunger. They need a bit of leadership quality. I think you need three leaders. My back four were all winners.

'Thierry Henry is the club`s talisman and only he can answer questions about himself. They looked up to Bergkamp; they looked up to Vieira and they miss that leadership quality.'
