Why do Arsenal players seem to get more ridiculous questions asked of them than other team’s players. We all know that Mikel Arteta (our captain I think) is doing his coaching badge, and is probably the most likely to end up as a manager one day, so he probably needs more practise fending off the media than the other players.
Anyway here is his fascinating answer to the question of how Arsenal can become more consistent. He replied: “It is something different to be consistent individually and consistent as a team, they are two different things but in the end they are related,”
“Now for someone to be consistent in the Premier League you have to win every week and compete at the highest level every week – but to compete for the Premier League is really, really hard.
“To be consistent, I think individually you start with your own preparation, your mentality, your desire, the way you face every training session, the way you communicate with your other players and everything.
“They cannot be lost by one per cent at any moment because that is gift for the opposition so that is the minimum you can demand.”
So is that all clear? Okay so today’s homework for today I would like you all to imagine you are the Arsenal captain (or manager) and put in the comments below what would be YOUR answer to the question; How can Arsenal become more consistent?
