Alex Song, easily one the of the better performers to date so far this season in an Arsenal shirt, admits that at the current time at the Emirates is not good following a very poor start to the season.
While in a poor situation the Cameroon international hopes that after the international break Arsenal will come back stronger and with a winning mentality, stating that losing this many games is not normal for Arsenal and they have to improve for the fans.
Song told Arsenal Player:
We need to just keep going. We can’t lose games like this, it is not normal. We are not allowed to do it, for the fans and for everyone who loves Arsenal.
We need to learn from this one for the future because we are not in a good situation at the moment.
When everybody comes back we will feel very good and strong.
We need to keep our heads up and try to push ourselves to learn and give the best for the future.

Arsenal being in this position is not normal. We now need to show something very good, not just for the fans, but for us as well.
Arsenal always fight for the first place, the top places. Now we are not in a good situation.
It is very important for us to come back after the (international) break with a winning mentality.
We want to show that we are not down, we are here and we can do something good.
The next five games are very important for us.
We need to win every single one to come back and show the fans that we are ready and that we are to fight for the league.
I must say that Song has been impressive this campaign, but I feel his ability is wasted in defence. Hopefully Koscielny will make a quick return to action so Song can return to midfield and play a few more of those brilliant final balls he has been playing in recent weeks!
