With five fit central defenders, Arsenal are good to go!

Hello Gooners. How do you do?

The good news I heard today is that Mustafi and Soares are back in training. I am so excited about this news because it means we can now concentrate on building our defence for now and for the future. With five fit central defenders, we can now enjoy the luxury of choosing our most inform players. Mustafi most especially, is why I am so happy. He has been playing so well in recent games and I feared a lengthy lay off caused by injury, may derail his good form.

Stop comparing Arteta to Emery!

Hi my fellow Arsenal fans. I may seem a little angry through my write up; I may sound blunt and I may sound unpleasant. But one thing I won’t do is to keep quiet while people use every little opportunity to criticize a man who is trying his best to create an impact. We lost to a team in the Europa league and we were dumped out from that competition, but does that make us a failure? Does it make Arteta a failure; no it doesn’t, does it?

How far the Mighty Arsenal have fallen this season…

And there goes the dream fading away by Lagos Gooner

Hello Gooners all over! I am still in a great shock: I can’t possibly think of any reason why we lost to a spirited Olympiacos team. A match I felt we were going to win effortlessly became the match that broke my heart, once again! Who is going to console me right now? Who is going to console the billions of Arsenal fans all over the world, who felt winning the Europa would catapult them into the UEFA Champions league? What is going to happen next to my darling Arsenal? Wow! How are the mighty fallen! The great Arsenal is finding it difficult winning the 2nd tier UEFA competition.

Aubameyang makes positive noises about ambition

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.

Can we just forget about Emery and move on now?

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.

What does it take to be a true Arsenal supporter?

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.

An analysis of the Arteta effect on Arsenal

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.
