The Ox: Team Spirit Can Lead Us To The Title
I`m not sure how long it`s been since Arsenal last won a trophy, because nobody ever divulges that sort of information, but it must have been a year or two.
However there appears to be plenty of belief in the squad that this year we can finally break our very large duck.
Last week I predicted that our team spirit and bond created by our players having played with each other for a good long while would enable us to emerge victorious over the old enemies £110M squad, and so it came to pass, and after going on a run at the end of last season usually reserve only for champions elect, belief is high in the camp this season.
Especially after the signing of Mesut Ozil.
The Ox in particular thinks we can do great things.
"We've been contenders ever since I came to Arsenal. Or at least that's the feeling in the squad. We really think we can take the title."
'Obviously it hasn't happened in recent seasons. But in the form we showed at the end of last season, and - when I was watching from the sidelines - in the spirit we've shown at the start of this, in the derby, everyone was fighting for each other."
'That team spirit, you can't buy it. That, along with our manager and the signings, I'm full of optimism that this season can be a good one."
'We think we can win the title. Just like we believe we can win every competition we're in. If you don't believe that, then you don't deserve to be at Arsenal.'
