Aubameyang on the London Stadium comeback 0

Posted on December 10, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal played a rather bleak first half against West Ham on Saturday and went to the break trailing the hosts by 1-0, albeit due to a very unfortunate deflected header from Angelo Ogbonna which caught Ainsley Maitland-Niles and cheated Bernd Leno. After the goal, the team seemed to have lost the little zest they had in them before, and even though the Hammers didn’t play all that well themselves, they seemed very comfortable in the minimal lead against the indisposed Gunners. 

However, we’ve rarely seen them turn things around the way they did in the second half. Goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured the three points moved to North London.

Aubameyang ‘ready to quit’ Arsenal 0

Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang has terminated the negotiations he was holding with the club over signing a new contract and is ready to ‘quite the club’ next summer, according to Mirror.

Having arrived from Borussia Dortmund in a £56 million deal in January 2018, the Gabonese has banged in 53 goals in 83 games in all competitions for the Gunners, winning the Premier League Golden Boot last season in the process, together with the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. It cannot be disputed that his individual quality in attack has been one of the few bright spots in the team ever since the club decided to part ways with Arsene Wenger and replace him with Unai Emery last year. His fine performances in a sea of underwhelming ones have earned him the captain’s armband, following the woes Granit Xhaka went through in that role.

Aubameyang ‘postpones contract talks’ 0

According to a report by Sport, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put the talks over a new contract with Arsenal on hold until he finds out how serious the reported interest in his services from Barcelona is.

Admittedly, the Spanish media are far from reliable when it comes to stories such as this one, so it has to be taken with a pinch of salt, but given the situation Arsenal seem to be in at the moment, it does unfortunately make some sense. There were always fears that unless the team improves as a unit and better results start coming soon, those members who do their job properly (and Aubameyang is certainly one of them) would start looking at other clubs.

Aubameyang & AFTV controversy continues 0

When the international break dawns on you it can be easy to get distracted with issues that don’t usually pop up when the domestic season is in full flow. That’s kind of one of the amusing points of the international break because not only does it give us a break from seeing Arsenal disappoint us every week, but it also opens our eyes up to a multitude of other issues.

Xhaka stripped of captaincy but controversies still exist 0

In the aftermath of the incident which saw Granit Xhaka leave the pitch at the Emirates to a chorus of boos and whistles and then respond in a most inappropriate manner, the midfielder has been relieved of duty as the club captain. The armband has gone to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang instead. And while many at the club will have hoped to end the unpleasant chapter therein and move on, the decision itself seems to have given fertile ground for more controversy to sprout.

Aubameyang targeted by Barcelona? 0

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has emerged as a potential target for Barcelona next summer, according to reports in Spain.

Luis Suarez, who almost joined Arsenal back in 2013 before he led Liverpool’s ultimately doomed title chase the following season and moved to Barcelona afterwards, has turned 32 and his form isn’t what it used to be. Injuries have also started creeping in on the controversial Uruguayan, and it seems the end of his bliss is very near. Naturally, they will be aware of that at the Catalan club, and various reports have been linking them with a host of strikers that would perhaps be able to replace him. They still haven’t signed such a player, and El Chiriguito now claim they have started looking at Aubemayang.

Aubameyang named Premier League Player of the Month for September 0

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continues to shine as Arsenal’s brightest star this season. Having shared the Premier League Golden Boot last season with Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane (22 goals each), the former Borussia Dortmund man now has seven strikes from eight games, just one shy of Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

Recognizing his superb form which has often dragged Arsenal forward despite some abysmal showings by the sections of the team, the Premier League have chosen him as the best player for the month of September, 2019. It could, perhaps, be argued by other clubs’ supporters that some of their players also played some fabulous games last month, but in terms of how much a player’s performance has meant to his team, Aubameyang clearly outstrips them all.

How much will Auba take? 0

Arsenal will return to action this weekend as they prepare to host Bournemouth in the Premier League at the Emirates. They’re coming off the back of a comprehensive win against Standard Liege in the Europa League earlier this week, with many fans and pundits believing that if Unai Emery can resolve his tactical and defensive issues, they’ll be able to go on a little bit of a run in all competitions.

Aubameyang doesn’t hide his disappointment 1

Posted on September 16, 2019 by Harry Kettle

When you score two goals for your team and put them into a 2-0 lead, it’s always going to be somewhat disappointing when the eventual result is 2-2 – and the game was against Watford. There’s no problem with dropping points to the Hornets, but defensively speaking, the Gunners handed the result to them on a silver platter.

Both goals were so unbelievably avoidable and even that might be an understatement. So then, for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored the two aforementioned goals, we can completely fathom why he was a little bit upset. The man himself spoke about the result in the immediate aftermath of the game and, in the end, we’d argue he was pretty respectful.

New season – old problems? 0

So the North London Derby ended in a draw, with the two teams scoring two goals apiece.

Perhaps it’s too early at the moment, but the immediate feeling is – disappointment.  More than anything else, it feels like an opportunity missed, a chance for Arsenal to pull away from their fiercest rivals and closest neighbours gone down the drain. The teams could have been five points apart, a big advantage this early in the season, but as it is, the gap remains only two.
