Aaron Ramsey’s improved form was the catalyst in Arsenal’s convincing win in Turkey on Tuesday night, and the Welshman is hoping that this outstanding performance by the Gunners fringe players will take the pressure off our under-fire manager. There was a great contrast to Saturday’s disppointment at Stoke, which ended with Arsenal fans fighting each other on the train home, but Ramsey insists that the players themselves are firmly behind Arsene Wenger.
“It was obviously a disappointing first half at Stoke, but we did well in the second half and almost got back into it,” he said. “It was important to bounce back from that defeat and we did that.
“Every player here wants to work hard for the manager. We proved that again on Tuesday night. He has been under some unfair criticism, but we are all out there, we are in it together. We wanted to get the result for us and for him.
“I think whenever we go into a game, he knows our qualities, always believes in us and gives us a great feeling for matches. Every time we go out there we are representing ourselves, our club and our manager.”
We all know that Wenger can be a great inpiration to his players, but maybe this season the team has mostly failed to react to Le Prof’s motivational speech’s with their performances on the pitch.
Perhap’s we should be blaming the players?
