It meant everything - Laura

It meant everything - Laura - 22 May 2011 - Women's Football NewsArsenal manager Laura Harvey admitted that memories of last year's F.A.Women's Cup Final defeat to Everton spurred her team on to their 2-0 victory over Bristol Academy.
First half goals from Kim Little and Julie Fleeting saw the Gunners to a convincing win and Harvey said afterwards: "It meant everything to us as the last twelve months has been tough.
"We didn't forget the feeling of last year and losing to Everton and I reminded the players that we didn't want to go through that again.
"In the first half we were excellent and could have scored more goals. We took our foot off the pedal in the second half but didn't look like conceding.
"Before the game there was a lot of talk by Bristol but we don't really do that and we let our football do the talking and just concentrated on ourselves. Bristol are a team that will pressure you and never stop working but we are a team that wants to play football and we've got a standard we want to stick to."
Harvey also paid tribute to player of the match Kim Little, saying: "She was our little rough diamond today. She is hitting form at the right time and the goal sums her up."
Bristol Academy manager Mark Sampson praised his team but accepted the better team had won on the day. "It's a tough one to take," he said. "In the first half, one team played well and one never got going.
"Arsenal moved the ball quickly and we couldn't get hold of possession in the first half. We did well to be at 2-0 at half time as we could have been out of the game.
"In the second half we were more like ourselves and the players showed great character. We gave it a go and didn't throw in the towel, we battled hard but didn't get that moment we needed.
"But it was a great experience for the club - the players, staff and everyone there."
Sampson also revealed that Jessica Fishlock had been taken to hospital following her first half injury, which was later diagnosed as severe concussion. "Jess wanted to play on, which was typical of her, but she had a huge lump on the side of her head and blurred vision. She couldn't carry on and went to hospital as a precaution."
