I don't think this was shown in the video... and I know it probably has been rarely brought up. When we were away to Dortmund in the group stages and they were throwing numbers forward to try and get back in the game there was one specific moment that I saw from a player that just made me feel that this team could not be written off.
It was Mikel Arteta. The ball was flown in and he literally put his body on the line to get that ball out of the area. I remember him jumping up and getting absolutely clattered. He won the ball and pressure was relieved for that moment. I know this is an odd thing to bring up but for some reason at that specific moment I was just shocked. That is something we have very rarely seen in recent seasons... our players risking themselves just to get a ball cleared.
At that moment I knew Arteta would be a great asset to the team and I knew that somehow we would pull through. Yes we didn't have the best of seasons, but this is the most spirit I've seen from any of our teams in a long time. Hopefully we can get that extra bit of quality to mix in with that spirit and push on for silverware next season.

A season consisting of us losing to Spurs away, getting thrashed 8-2 by United, United doing the double over us, not winning a trophy, losing 10 times... If we hadn't finished third I would say the season was a disaster.
