Toure Sets Sights On The Next Game

Toure Sets Sights On The Next Game

Kolo Toure has sided with Johan Djourou and decided to focus on the next game and challenging for the title rather than dwell on defeat.

Toure, being the ultimate professional that he is, knows the trip to Reading will not be an easy one, but tips the Gunners to bounce back.

'Now we have to focus on our next match, which is a really difficult match.

'We will have to be on top of our game at Reading because they are doing well in the Premiership and it will be a really hard game.'

'It is true that it will be tough, but we have the character, the spirit - we want to win the Premiership.'

'To win the Premiership title you need to win games like this and we will go to Reading and try to beat them.'

Kolo Toure has always been one of my favorite players, probably one of the hardest workers on the whole team whilst at the same time being the most humble and honest.

A true role model for all aspiring young footballers.

Bravo, Toure and Djourou. You could feel Henry's anger in that interview, but that 'we're not a big club' comment really hurt. I know what he meant, but really...its not nice to hear your captain say those things. We should have learned from Pizzagate that to dwell on a defeat so much can cost a season. This really isnt the end of the world, our destiny is still well in our hands in UCL, and the Premiership must stay in focus. MARCH ON, GUNNERS!

Thierry does make some 'inappropriate' comments post-match, particularly in the champs league (eg criticism of Ronaldiho & Eto'o on the field after the CL final). But he's an Arsenal player AND fan, and sometimes switches to angry fan mode in the heat of battle. I'd rather see this passion from the captain than politically correct apathy. It is this passion that kept him here in the summer after all...

Thanks Rocky7, I've been reading off the Vital Network for some time now, the Arse and Chelsea forums are a great read (Im a Gooner, but some Chel.fans are worth the read occasionally), and the hilarity of the Spores...decided to join about a week or two ago. I am getting sick of all these blogs spewing vitrol about the ref and the game. Yes, the ref made a blunder, its not the first time this has happened to us, or any other team for that matter. CSKA were better than us on the important moments of the match. Let's move on, focus on the difficult task that is Reading FC, and keep our momentum going. End of.

All you need to forget your last defeat is a victory. And 3 points on Sunday will keep us ticking along nicely in the title race. With Chelsea at Portsmouth and Man Utd facing Liverpool there's certainly a chance that we can make up a couple of points on one or possibly both teams. Come on you Gunners!!!

i think a lot of Henry's pre match comments, although not entirely poositive for the club and team indicate his desire and passion for the club. Wether a captain should be saying these or not is a different debate as all teams have the passionate players and the calm, collected members also. Toure is the best example of how to not dwell on something and let it fester, i can see a similar rock solid performance coming from him again this weekend. It will be interesting to see come kick off time if Henry is "still in Moscow" or with the team at Reading, only at kick off will we know!
