Petr Cech gives Arsenal the belief to push on

Some naysayers could put forward the view that Arsenal lost two points in the draw at Stoke, but Petr Cech is the type of player whose glass is always half-full and he has persuaded the other Gunners that it is a point gained in our race for the title.

Let’s allow Theo Walcott to explain the big man’s effect on the team: “All the big teams that have come here have struggled, with Stoke getting positive results,” he said. “There were mixed emotions in the dressing room, but it is probably a fair result.

“We felt from the start we were up for the fight, physically. It’s a shame that we couldn’t get the result we desperately wanted but it is an improvement from previous performances here and we have got to be proud of that point.

“The mental strength in our dressing room is the strongest it has ever been. When you have the likes of Petr Cech coming in as well, he only enhances that.

“He has lifted everybody’s heads up, saying this is a very good point and that nobody tends to win here.

“We just have to look at him because he has been at the top level and won many things so if we have the belief that he has got, we can push on.”

Not only did Arsenal not lose at Stoke, like we did last season, Petr has kept the team in confident mood as we prepare to face his old side next weekend in yet another crucial fixture in the race for the title. With the expected return of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez there is no reason for us not to take all three points, especially with Petr Cech holding things steady at the back.

Onwards and Upwards!

    I agree there is a genuine
    belief among players
    management and fans
    that we can do it this season.
    The 2 draws at Stoke and Liverpool
    were evidence that the team is really hard to beat.
    Top of the table without Sanchez Coq and Santi
    let alone Rosicky and Wellbeck.
    With Elneny available now as well
    Arsenal has another level to go yet.
    The Chelsea game is another chance
    to continue our journey.
    I would take a draw actually as I reckon WH will beat City.

    Daily Telegraph commenting on the idiotic chants by the Stoke fans aimed at Ramsey who’d broken his leg several yes ago.Shouldn’t that read that Shawcross broke his leg?

    Cech is a proven winner and world class.

    This is what you get when you buy proven world class players, there winning mentality even rubs off the other players. We started winning trophies the moment we signed Ozil, no coincidence there

    The difference between us and Bayern, Barca, R. Madrid and to some extent Man City is they have proven players all over the park and match winers. e.g. if Robben is injured or needs rest Bayern have Costa, Comman, Muller, Goetz who can all fill in minus dropping the level too much, if Bale is out of Madrid has Isco, James, Jese to fill the void. We need more match winners in our squad, without Sanchez’s goals, Ozil’s assists and OG’s goal the others don’t seem to step up when required. An addition of at least 2 more WC players preferably a ST and a winger and we are good to go. It might not be this window though. Auba and Grienzman could take us to the next level.
