Julio Baptista has expressed a desire to play more football for Arsenal.

The Beast has not featured much since his move from Real Madrid, and it appears he has a huge desire to suceed at the Gunners.

What some sources are claiming is Baptista expressing his unhappiness at the club, I suggest is The Beast’s winning spirit and ambition coming through.

‘I’m fit, I want to play and I didn’t sign for Arsenal to sit on the bench,’ said Baptista

‘I know that I can play very well and help the team improve their results – but I haven’t been given a chance. All I want to do is help my team and to do that I need to be a first-choice starter. Of course I want to play against Porto.’

‘It was great to score against Hamburg but that is only a taste. I want more of the action and then I can show what I can do.

‘I was happy with my performances for Real Madrid and for Seville and I am confident that I can do the same for Arsenal.’

I would be very disapointed if any Arsenal player were happy sitting on the bench. This is a healthy reaction, lets hope Julio will put in the effort in training to accompany his fighting talk.

  • well, i think we’d all love to see what he’s capable of too. But when he’s given the chance, he’s got to make sure he grasps it with both hands. We all want him to be a success.

  • Well I certainly want to see more of him, he must have more to show and we bought him so we will use him more often sooner or later.

  • I think I like what little I’ve seen of him so far. He’d obviously like to play more, but i trust Arsene to decide when he’s ready to start regularly. And there is the tricky problem of formation – do we play 4-5-1 with him, cesc and gilberto? who do we rest – gilberto or cesc if we play 4-4-2? tricky questions!!

  • i think wenger will start with him against chelsea and porto, and he’s someone who can give match upto essien and makelle in the chelsea line up, so his presence whether in the midfield or upfront will be important..

  • i am not sure it is the papers stirring up rubbish, the guy who wrote it is probably a spurs fan and angry after staurday, so thought he would have a dig back.

  • wish we could have someone with that much to offer just sitting on the bench…clearly he wants to play though…..

  • yeah after seeing us trounce spurs and being on the pitch at the end, he wants to share that again, and what a feeling huh >? beating yoru rivals and the fans loving it, he obviously likes it here, but like every footballer wants to play.

  • When you actually read the article, you can sense how much he wants to play FOR Arsenal and show what he’s made of. Of course if you just look at some of the titles of the articles about him, it reads “Baptista miserable at Arsenal.” “Baptista unhappy and doesn’t want a permanent move to Arsenal” etc etc. ~___~ It’s one thing to be frustrated because you can’t start in every match, but it’s one entirely different thing if you’re simply unhappy with everything about the club and the club itself, which isn’t the case for Baptista. These misleading titles are what gets to me more than anything. >:3

  • duck you speak well my friend, any player that is chomping at the bit wanting to play is worth playing, and ofcourse it gives the other players something to think about with competition.
