Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal can prove their critics wrong and enjoy a successful season.

Arsène Wenger’s team have been tipped by some to drop out of the Champions League places in 2011/12 but they were written off last summer too and still secured a top-four finish after challenging strongly for the title.

That defeat at the Carling Cup Final denied Arsenal a trophy but Ramsey is confident they can go one better this time around.

“People are entitled to their own opinions but I think and the team thinks that we are more than capable of winning something this season,” he told Arsenal Player.

“We're going to believe that we can and not listen to any of the negative comments that people are saying. We're confident in what we can do and I'm sure we'll show that this season.”

The full interview with Aaron is now available on Arsenal Player. He discusses: playing for Wales in midweek, a big season for him, the trip to Newcastle, learning from last season and more.
