Two games at the helm Freddie Ljunberg is not looking like someone who would change arsenal’s fortunes. The stadium filled up after freddie promising the fans during a press comference a week ago that the smile will come back on their faces during a home game and this was one but still arsenal looked like a team with no direction nor motive.
