Arsenal have tried all the fancy football, and the passing outside the box trying to walk it into the net, but now is the time for a change of direction and we have to FIGHT for every single point, according to our assists-meister Mesut Ozil.
Our last nine games last season yielded 8 wins, and if we are to have any chance of finishing in the top two we will need to have a similar run of results. Ozil says we have to forget our past successes. “Last year we won those last eight [remaining] games but we don’t care about that now,” the German international said on Arsenal.com. “It’s important what happens now.
“We have to concentrate now and give everything on the pitch. We have to fight.
“I know the teams playing us will fight to take the points against us, so the games will be tough. We have to fight on the pitch and we have to think from game to game, not that we can win eight games in a row and take the points.
“Now it’s not possible to win just our games [and that to be enough] so other teams need to lose points as well. The first step is to believe in us.
“We have to work harder than before. We have tough games coming but we have to take the points. If we win the title, we will be very happy because we believe in us.
“If you see the whole season, we’ve played very well. We’ve lost some points because we weren’t concentrated or we didn’t score. Now we have to fight for each game to take the points.”
That’s more like it Ozil! We don’t want players whining about getting our confidence back and hoping our rivals lose more games. we want the team to FIGHT, for the whole 90 minutes of every game, starting tomorrow lunch time!
