Rice and Ramsdale react to Community Shield win

Aaron Ramsdale and Declan Rice spoke to ITV today after the penalty shoot out win over Man City in the Community Shield.

Here’s what they had to say.

Declan Rice

I’m absolutely buzzing. This is what I envisioned when I joined the club. It was a really tough game, but we dug in there, created some really good chances and had a bit of luck at the end.

You just have to be patient against them. The manager said before the game that it’s like a load of little games rolled into one. They move and change so much. You can ger frustrated but it’s about sticking to what the manager wants. It’s my first [trophy] for this club, and Aaron’s, so we’re buzzing.

I feel like I’ve grown so much already in the three weeks I’ve been here. There’s a lot of information to take in on what the manager to wants. I’m eager to learn and keep improving. With this team we’ve got – the manager, the staff – we can achieve anything this year.

We need to stay focussed, stay together and enjoy today.

Aaron Ramsdale

We’ve been working hard on penalties for about two years. I haven’t had the luck that I needed in previous seasons. We go with our plans and it worked away.

On what it means …

I’m not sure, I’ll be honest. They’re a bit behind us in their pre-season. But to us it’s a marker that we can beat Man City in a big game, when it matters. I’m not sure what it’ll be like during the season, but any mental block has gone.

We’re now ready to push on.

Can’t wait for Declan to settle and get the confidence to be the main man….he’s gonna be an amazing leader when he finds his feet 🚀


Ramsdale, what a humble man. Great winner.

It’s nice that we have at least something, a tiny bit of silverware to show for all the hard work we did last season. Now on to bigger and better things.

Why did Aaron go away from the rest of the lads and down the stairs so quickly after lifting the trophy?


Needed a poo

Declan Rice has been buzzing so much since joining Arsenal I’m convinced he will turn into a bee sooner rather than later.
