'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arsenal Form Is Unacceptable

Aaron Ramsey has said that Arsenal's form and where we find ourselves in the table is simply not acceptable, but he believes the club is more than capable of turning things around.

Speaking to the Daily Mail the midfielder accepts that results simply have to improve because the start to the season has been poor.

'It's been a difficult time for the club, Arsenal are one of the top clubs in England and where we are at the moment is not acceptable. We have to turn that around pretty quickly. We are under a lot of pressure, we have not produced results we are capable of. That has surprised people but it will turn around soon.'

It's all well and good sabre rattling in the press, and yes it's what fans want to hear but there comes a point where you want less talk in the press and for them to simply do the talking on the pitch.

Poor article, I didn't hear the word hilarious mentioned once.

I think it just indicates how high the players' targets are set; some other clubs in this position might be thinking 'we need to guarantee a place in the EPL next year and go from there'; others would tell you we're aiming to finish top-half' - but Arsenal know they're good enough - and expected to - do well. It's a good sign.

And please, let's remember that when we read these quotes from various sources, we get them out of context - Aaron hasn't phoned the Daily Mail and said 'Hello. I want to rattle the sabre; we're brilliant and we'll do better. Print that.' He'll have been asked a question and provided an answer.

You wouldn't have 'heard' it anyway unless you had someone read it out loud for you.

Ramsey and the other players are just pawns in a much bigger game being played by the Arsenal board. The reason that the team are suffering is because others in positions of power have taken a carving knife to the club in order to ensure that their pockets are continually lined. Simple as that. I find it staggering that the supporters aren't fighting back. Maybe they just don't want to hurt the club. Sad really.

nikolaijns, you're back. We missed you. However, like a hefty dose of the clap, we knew you'd return.
