"Arsenal has everything to win. History, infrastructure, an incredible stadium and great players but we have to improve at crucial moments and sign the best football players because if you don’t do that, you may lag behind others."
- Santi Cazorla (does not mention Arsene Wenger as part of the winning equation)

"When you watch Arsenal, something just sparks and you’re inspired. Football is an art, it’s just like artists that put on shows. Arsenal gives football a good image and that’s important. For many people, the best is who wins the most. But when you watch Arsenal play a game, you think that’s truly football. The most important thing at Arsenal is 'victoria concordia crescit' because football has to be more than a game. It has to help change the way we see one another. Arsenal teaches us loyalty. That’s what Gooners take pride in. That’s why Arsenal is more than just a club.”

Loyalty is a funny thing. It’s always in black and white, no shades of gray. You either have it, or you don’t. Because if you are loyal you are ALWAYS going to put the team before you, you are always going to give your absolute best, your heart and soul for the best of the club and the name on the shirt. Money, trophies, they come with time. But if you show respect and loyalty you win the fans, you get comfortable and things just fit into places. But if you don’t have it… what is the point? What is the point of doing something if you are only doing it half-hearted. Because football is not just a sport, not a place where you do business. The team is your family, the name on the chest becomes your name and once you’re in, there’s no going out.

Arsenal are the club that are ridiculed. Arsenal are the club who are pointed at and giggled at by the written media, opposition fans and even our own who are using the van Persie situation to twist the knife just that little bit more. It is Arsenal that are sneered at for passing the ball and not being ‘British’ enough. I must be living in a warped parallel universe.
We are one of the few big clubs who are standing on our own two feet, trying to organically grow our club by building a new stadium. We are the team looked upon by so many as if we are abnormal. 
This isn’t to say that everything at the club is correct, it isn’t. Supporters are rightly annoyed at the ownership squabbles and why the new owner has hardly spoken a word to the supporters about his vision and where he wants to take the club. 
We have made contractual mistakes which has weakened our hands etc etc but on the larger scale, we are doing a good job considering we have the candle burning at both ends. 
The one person I look at without skepticism is our manager, Arsene Wenger. Like those young players who come through the ranks, our manager has made mistakes, it would be ridiculous to think that any manager has gone through a career without making many errors along the way but he has stuck by his principles. Stuck to what he believes in. Arsene Wenger had the chance to manage other clubs with a larger ‘war chest’ on top of a much larger salary but he also turned those opportunities down because he has the club in his heart, just like us.
