Ramires: Aiming for the top this season

Mourinho is back at the club he guided to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006, sparking optimism from the Brazil international that the Blues can enjoy a successful season.

"The environment during the first training sessions has been very good," Ramires told Globo Esporte.

"Everyone is very excited and willing. We can feel positive changes happening. Mourinho and the new signings have contributed a lot to that.

"I might be wrong because we know how things are in football, but I think this season can be better than the 2011-12 one, when we won the Champions League.

"I see our team is ready, more interested and with the possibility of fighting for the Premier League title as well, which is something we haven't done in the last few years.

"Let's wait for the games to start and we will see what happens."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

The Bitter Taste Of Arsenal Déjà Vu

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
