Arsenal fans! “Don’t worry, be happy”

One of my songs of all time is the classical hit song by Bobby McFerrin titled “Don’t worry, be happy”! Whenever I listen to this song, it takes my mind off the worries of life; Instead of being bothered over trival issues, I become happy because happiness places you in a good emotional state.

I would like to recommend this song to every Arsenal fans out there; forget your worries and just be happy! Now, these are the situations I will ask you to worry less and just be happy…

Arsenal 5-0 Lincoln City – What the stats revealed about the game…

The Gunners were 5-0 winners over Lincoln FC in the FA Cup clash on Saturday to prove that their season is not all dead and gone, as it seems following back to back defeat against Liverpool (3-1) and (Bayern Munich 5-1 home and away) in the UEFA Champions League.

Be that as it may b, Theo Walcott got the breakthrough goal for Arsenal to open the scoring as goals kept coming in the second half.

The game was a true reflection of the score line as Arsenal dominated the game thus making Lincoln to be second best in the entire contest.

What the stats say about Arsenal v Bayern Munich

ARSENAL 1-5 BAYERN MUNICH: WHAT THE STATS SAYS AS REGARDS TO ARSENAL DEFEAT IN THE GAME.

The Gunners were beaten hands down as the Bavarian giants cruised past the hosts at the Emirates Stadium 5-1 in the match and 10-2 on aggregate. It was a dismal night of football for Arsenal as they suffered one of their heaviest defeats at the Champions league stage. The likes of Arjen Robben and Douglas Costa personally tore Arsenal’s defence apart as goals from Arturo Vidal completed the routing to make it 5-1 at the Emirates.

Wenger surprised that the Ox wants to leave Arsenal

Reports emerged during this week that Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is the latest player that has decided to leave the club in the summer, following a few other first team stars out the exit doors.

Of course Alexis Sanchez is already seemingly preparing for the exit, whilst the likes of Mesut Ozil and Hector Bellerin may also consider moves if there isn’t change at the club. Reports of plays coming to blows, the uncertainty of Arsene Wenger’s future and the recent very bad run of results, has all accumulated to mean that several members of the squad are now thinking of moving on to pastures new. When the going gets tough, it’s good to power through, but if the players know that they can be competitive elsewhere, without such a hostile atmosphere and lots of uncertainty, then you really can’t blame them.

FIVE lessons we learnt from Arsenal’s defeat by Bayern Munich

The Gunners were beaten yet again 1-5 by the Bavarian giants Bayern Munich in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League tie at the Emirates to the dismay of the watching fans and English Football at large.

The host (Arsenal) came into the top match against Bayern on the eve of the 3-1 Liverpool defeat at Anfield at the weekend which prompted so many questions to the Arsenal side and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in particular as regards to the contract extension at the end of the season.

Alexis makes it clear he wants to leave Arsenal

When relationships go sour, we expect all kinds of funny attitudes from the parties involved but what stands you out as a matured man or woman is the ability to hold your peace and never disrespect the other party involved. Yes, you are no longer interested in the relationship but instead of leaving on a bad note, matured people try to end relationships as friends! This will come in handy if there is need for any future meetings between both parties. The end of a relationship should not be the end of friendship! I wished Sanchez knew this.

Arsenal can’t allow another RVP situation with Alexis

The last time Arsenal sold a player to a rival club, he won the premiership title with that same club the same season he was sold to the club. The player is Robin Van-Persie. Will Arsenal want a repetition of this? Will they allow Sanchez leave them for a rival club in the same league with them? Can they stand the backlash if he helps the club he joins to lift the premiership trophy? Arsenal should think hard before taking a decision regarding the future of the Chilean footballer.
