Pierre Aubameyang, our highest goal scorer last season, has been in the news since the beginning of the year. He began the year on a bad note with his sending off against Palace in the early weeks of January, and from there the transfer rumour mongers did everything to destabilize the team with stories and rumours about how Barcelona were interested in our top scorer. Thank goodness the transfer window ended with our main man still an Arsenal player. I was one of the fans who always hoped Auba would remain in Arsenal for a long time, even though I know every player has a price and if a club was ready to meet Arsenal’s asking price, then Arsenal would sell Pierre.
Two months after Emery has been sacked, what he has been getting are bashings and bad testimonies from both his former players at Arsenal and from sport pundits. Unai Emery came to Arsenal with a good coaching record. In his first season at Arsenal, he went 22 games unbeaten, while beating Tottenham in the process and drawing against Liverpool, who later went on to be Champions league winners. He really tried his best to make Arsenal competitive and they were. We played in the final of the Europa League and only lost to Chelsea because we gave them so much respect. He also began his second season at Arsenal with a win against Newcastle. In all, while many may want to view Emery’s time at Arsenal as a failure, I choose to view it differently. Emery was just unfortunate to be saddled with problems he had no solutions for.
Time to move forward and start winning games again.
Hello Arsenal family! What a lovely day it is gonna be. I can’t wait to relish all the goodies this day has to offer. Put a smile on your faces today, because life is beautiful.
I woke up this morning with joy in my heart. The joy has been in my heart all night and I will like to explain why to you all.
Is this going to be the season where we finish below the top six?
With 13 draws and 6 losses in 25 premiership games, the records don’t look so enticing to the eyes, and they are neither pleasing to the hearts of genuine Arsenal fans. We seem not to be moving forward, despite changing managers twice since Wenger left. It has been ‘one step forward, two steps back’, this season.

Two seasons ago when Arsene Wenger was still coach of Arsenal, I had an encounter with a celebrated football commentator on issues pertaining to Arsenal. He came for a football conference in Lagos and I was to cover the conference as an independent journalist. After the conference, I walked up to him and asked him one honest but blunt question; I asked him why he hated Arsenal with so much passion! During the course of the conference, he spoke so much about how Arsenal was doomed for destruction, simply because Wenger was in charge and how Wenger had lost ideas on how to move the club forward.
Good morning Gooners all over the world. I woke up this morning thinking about what Bournemouth thought about Arsenal. Well, to help my cause, I logged on to the official website of Bournemouth Afc. While there, I stumbled upon an interview conducted with Amy Lawrence, who covers the fortunes of the Gunners for The Athletic.
In the interview, Amy said a lot of things about Arsenal; some we know and some we don’t. I will just like to briefly talk on some of the things Amy said. Read on.
Hola Gooners! What a wonderful day it is. While we are still in a happy mood as a result of our slim victory over Bournemouth, I will like to bring your notice to something I observed while watching the game. Did we all observe that for the first 30 minutes or so of the game, we shut out Bournemouth? They had no attempt on goal until after 30 minutes. Is this not impressive?
Talking tough is good Mari; welcome to the Premiership by Lagos Gooner
It is no longer news that Arteta has succeeded in bringing in his first signing as coach of Arsenal. Just yesterday, Pablo Mari was announced as an Arsenal player. Like other new signings, there are always fears if such signings would click or not. Well, as if Mari was reading the minds of the Arsenal fans, he provided an answer to that, while assuring the fans that Arsenal would compete with the best. Pablo Mari believes that with his performance against Liverpool’s attacking duo of Salah and Mane, he is ready for the premiership.
When will the wins start happening?
Happy weekend Arsenal friends from around the world. Today, I want to just talk about Arsenal and when we are going to start winning our games. Ever since Arteta took charge of the team, we have seen some improvements in the way the team plays. We now play with passion, aggression and precision. This is a welcome development; but with just one win in six games, forgive me if I say I have not seen the change we were expecting, yet.
