          that’s the kind of mentality that are restraining our players. If we want to win the champions or the league or any competition, we need to beat the bests.

    Just a little reminder to the fans worried about a tough draw in the last 16: remember what happened a couple seasons ago when we got Monaco, which was the easiest draw in the last 16, and that they had lots of injuries.

    Funny Arsenal fans,when a pundit says he doesn’t believe in this Team winning the champions league or going further than last-16,arsenal fans will slate him calling names and sort,yet the same Arsenal fans are praying that we don’t meet the big teams,have you forgotten that this is a league of champions? If we want to make a statement,we have to start believing in ourselves,its high time we removed that mentality blocks of being inferior to some teams,if the arsenal fans are afraid of some certain teams,then don’t blame any player/s when the team is beaten by one of those teams. This is Wenger biggest challenge,instilling belief into his players in big matches,if he can do it like he did some many years ago in the past,then there’s no team that we can’t beat. Remember that not all the teams are going to play like west ham
