Arsenal Ladies celebrated their second successive Women’s Super League win on Sunday. After celebrating the championship by beating Doncaster 3-2 at Meadow Park, a number of Laura Harvey's players spoke to Arsenal.com.
It’s been fantastic. For a while, everyone has been talking about if and when we’re going to win the league so it’s nice to have finally done it.
We always felt confident that we could win this game, and the league as a result. In the end we didn’t need to because other results went in our favour. It’s good to win it before Birmingham next week.
We found out we were champions in the warm up. Laura Harvey was trying to keep it quiet but people around the ground were all saying it. Now we just want to make sure we go through this season unbeaten. It was important to come out here and play well.
It’s been a mad season. We’ve got three more games, and possibly another two if we get through to the next round of the Champions League. We’ll carry on and stay confident – hopefully we can win some more trophies.
We came into the game knowing we’d won the league. But to get the result as well is great for us.
Personally, I don’t think I’ve had the best season to be honest. I’ve scored a few goals, especially in the first half of the season, but I’ve not scored as many as I’d have wanted in the second part of the season. I’ve done alright but I can play better.
Playing with Jordan Nobbs and Katie Chapman has really helped me. They’re a bit more defensive minded than I am. They’re great. They’ve got so much energy, which helps our team in general so to have them in our team is great for us.
We’ll be having a little house party tonight so we’re all looking forward to that. Winning the league is a big occasion and we’re going to celebrate it.
Birmingham have won the FA Cup and we’ve won the league, so we both want to go out and win a second trophy, to make sure we win more than they do. We really want to go and win the Continental Cup on October 10.
For us it’s fantastic. It’s always nice to bounce back after winning it last season. To do it again just proves we are true champions.
This squad has a real will to win. It’s horrible losing a game. We’re all together in this and we all want to win every game. The title is the big one and that’s what we aim for.
It’s been brilliant to be captain. I never thought I’d actually be a captain, but Laura Harvey has put it upon me. I took over from Jayne Ludlow when she was injured, and it’s been split between the two of us depending on who’s playing. For me it’s been a great honour to captain Arsenal.
We’d love to make it a treble. But we just have to wait and see. Every game is different – every cup game is different. It’s going to be a tough task against Birmingham in the Continental Cup and then Champions League is a big one anyway. We’re going to progress through each game and see how we go.
We always want to win every trophy we compete in. We got knocked out of the FA Cup so we want to pick up all of the rest of the trophies that are available.
There’s a real winning mentality in the squad. It’s always been there at the club and we thrive on it. We just want to keep proving ourselves year in, year out.Copyright 2014 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
