Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has stated that our squad isn’t taking much notice of the criticism coming from outside, in a week where Gary Neville launched an attack on the club, the Mirror reports.
The former Manchester United defender questioned our strength and ability to challenge for the Premier League while focusing on our midfield, as the report suggests.
Ramsey insists that the squad is numb to such talk and also stated that it’s too early to draw any conclusions and has called on people to wait until the league takes shape after 10 games.

“We don’t take too much notice,” Ramsey was quoted as saying in the publication after being asked about Neville’s comments.
“We know the players we have and it’s just important for us to concentrate on that and sometimes come to these sort of places and grind out results.

“You have to wait 10 games and see where you are then.”
Few can deny that our start to the season has been far from convincing, with our attacking potential the major worry after just four games. Olivier Giroud is the only player to score for us this season, with ‘own goals’ the biggest contributor to our goal tally at the moment.
Back-to-back clean sheets are encouraging, but we’re essentially an attacking team which means that the focus must be on scoring goals.
Hopefully, we can go on a convincing run after the international break.
