Wenger tells Arsenal kids: That's yer lot for this season

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has told his young tyros: That's yer lot for this season.

After Carling Cup elimination at the hands of Burnley, Wenger admitted: "Will this team have another opportunity this season? No.

"We had plenty of chances but when you do not score, you really have to ask yourself why.

"You can praise their keeper but also question our strikers. We had six one-on-ones with their keeper and did not score with any of them.

"In front of goal, you have to be much more clinical than we were.

"We just did not have the right focus in front of goal. We lost a game we should never have lost.

"The cup provides good education for our young players. You see those who have the quality to cope with the pressure and those that are not completely up to it yet."
