With their opinion of course, what did you think I meant….
I’m going to cheat today and for two reasons,
1) All is quite quiet on the Arsenal front as we head towards the season’s close.
2) I have a busy day or so ahead, so I’m just making life easy for myself.
Sol Campbell has said this –
The main thing is you have got to get the right balance, there is a fantastic amount of talent here and we just have to believe we can win a major trophy – and you also need a bit of the rub of the green now and again.
That said, I believe you make your own luck in the game – how you play, how you conduct yourselves, how you approach matches, making sure you are seriously thinking about football, you create luck with all those things combined.
Training-wise, you have to work on your weaknesses, preparing yourself properly for the game, on and off the field.
It is not that you have to be locked up 24/7, but I think all these things do add up – you ensure that things go your way by doing all the things which come before you actually step on the pitch.
We have got a lot of that in place here and I am sure that, once everything comes together, there will be no stopping Arsenal winning trophies season after season. You have to truly believe in your skill and trust that you can do something.
‘Wherever we finish, we will have to build on it and keep on going.
Martin Keown has said this,
The staff have worked hard for another year and they will go away disillusioned for another summer because this year has been a missed opportunity. The title was there to win this season.
If you look at the age of the team this year then I think they have over-achieved. They are all very young but we can’t keep saying that forever.
Arsenal need to buy in a sprinkling of proven quality players and introduce them alongside the current players, and they will drag them over the line.
It’s very important that you have these people in the squad. They are people who have been there and done it. They are people who you can look up to and rely on to show that quality. When you have a squad full of youngsters you get inconsistency and you are never quite sure how they’ll perform.
All the Arsenal players are now playing for their futures, they only have a few games to prove that they deserve to play at their club and that they deserve to have a future and that goes with the territory when you are playing for a big club.
The minute you can’t win a trophy then you don’t deserve a place, it’s as simple as that!!
Finally, Arsene Wenger has ‘allegedly’ said this,
“The construction of the Emirates Stadium meant that for many years we could not spend a lot of money. Our financial situation has greatly improved. We are finally able to buy the players we think we need.”
Will the summer of 2010 finally see one plus one make three?? I hope so because all three comments together are very positive 🙂
Have a good day peeps…..
