Got about half an hour to spare during a busy day so I thought I would pop a quick post up..
What has happened then in our club?
Early on in the season we lost our main striker, Robin van Persie.
Within days of him being missng players were coming out with things like ‘ We want to continue winning for Robin’
Nik, Walcott and Cesc get injured and the other players say things like ‘We want to keep winning and be strong for our captain and the injured boys’
Aarron Ramsey suffers a horrorfic injury and the rest of the team wear pre match t-shirts sending out their message to Rambo to get well. Players made it clear when interviewed that they want to win the Premier League for him.
Thomas Vermaelen gets a stupid red card at the weekend and today Eboue says ‘We wanted win for gutted Vermaelen’
The comments I mention are a few of many, but something has happened at the club, something seems to have changed within the squad.
My answer to my own question is, This squad no longer has players who think they are bigger and better than any of the others. Nor do they think they are bigger than the club. The squad have become a united group who all want the same thing. They want to win, not only for themselves, but they want to win for all of their team mates regardless of whether they are playing or not.
Now that to me says we have finally matured, that makes me think that this group of men will now fight as hard as they can regardless of what goes on around them..
Arsene calls it ‘Great Spirit and Determination’ Finally, he may just be right….
