Aaron Ramsdale has been speaking to Arsenal about life at the Emirates Stadium, where he revealed the players have made a request.

What’s the story?

Well, Ramsdale was asked what the Arsenal squad think of the chant created for Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe.

You can see footage of supporters bellowing out the song below.

It’s an extremely catchy tune, and Ramsdale claims it gets the team bus “rocking” after the game.

The 23-year-old also revealed that the players have asked the club to play the song on the Emirates Stadium speakers at full-time, should they win.

Ramsdale said: “We’ve asked if we can get it on at the stadium when we win – that would be rocking. But those two are sensational at the moment. If we can keep them both fit and help them by not putting too much pressure on their shoulders they’ll be flying. But that song definitely gets the team bus rocking after the game.”

Now, that would create quite the atmosphere in north London.

Just imagine the players and fans bouncing around to the chant after picking up three points – it would be a sight to behold.

Aaron Ramsdale comments suggest Arsenal need more original chants

In our view, creative chants like the Saka and Smith Rowe song are a brilliant way to build up a relationship between players and fans.

Therefore, it would be useful for supporters to conjure up a few more.

Of course, there are the traditionally recycled songs, such as “du, du, du, du, Aaron Ramsdale” for example, although they lack that special feeling.

Giving a player a unique chant of his own must make them feel great, which can only increase the chances of them playing well.

By the sounds of it, a catchy chant can even improve morale amongst the squad, as Ramsdale claims the players love singing the Saka and Smith Rowe song on the bus.

Listen out for the song on the Emirates Stadium speakers after Arsenal’s next home win – the Gunners would be foolish not to play it.
