We've Found What We Were Missing

We've Found What We Were Missing

Cesc Fabregas believes that Arsenal have found what has been missing from their performances over the last couple of seasons.

Consistency and goals from midfield were both missing from Arsenal's performances last season.

So far this year Arsenal have not lost a game, indeed, they have won all but one of their games - a goaless draw away to Blackburn.

Fabregas has already scored more goals this term than he did in the whole of last season. Hleb is well on his way to doing the same, while Rosicky has scored one goal.

Speaking to The Sun Fabregas said:'Last season I had the same chances and never scored. But this year I've had even less and scored more.

'We need to keep winning, which was what we were missing the last two seasons.

'We lost a lot of points at the beginning, had to come back, and it was too difficult as the teams at the top did not lose any points.

'We're on a good run but have to keep going as this was just one game. It's just the beginning.'

ad rosicky has 2 goals
17/09/2007 21:23:00
I think someone's still *****ed?
17/09/2007 21:52:00
Rosicky has 2 agree with that
17/09/2007 22:18:00
this is a great attitude from the team they are all thinking one game at a time and thats always the best way to do it

Ok so TH14 - do we miss you now. NO - we have a little spanish lad that saw the ambition of one MR Wenger ( Arsene knows) , turned down all of Real Madrids overtures to stay with the club that gave him a chance. He didnt make excuses about DD, ambition or perhaps Wenger being unsure. No he put his faith in the greatest club in the world and guess what TH14, we are top of the table, playing with a spirit that is amazing and even if these lads dont win the title this year TH, they have shown themeelves to have a fight and a belief that I am afraid you did not have. Yes we have found what we were missing and that is a little talisman that gets stuck in and dosent give a gaelic shrug when things are going wrong. Hey TH, perhaps we will see you in the Champs Lge Final - perhaps not as it seems your new team cant score - uhhmm - does that remind me of last year.

By the way , we are now the 2nd richest club

Before anyone jumps all over me about TH, he was a great player for us, I just didnt like the way he tried to find excuses about the club when really he just wanted to divorce his wife. Also, lets be honest, when the chips were he was not the man to get the troops motivated.

If we've found what was missing, let's not lose it again. I really believe, like themadafrican, that an ingredient wasn't missing for the last 2 years, but there was an abundance of poisoning EGO in the dressing room all that time. World class quality stiker, but certainly not a team player. If he'd been an asset to the TEAM, then Arsene wouldn't have allowed him to leave under any circumstances
