PEA’s Biggest Season Yet

Sweet April Showers do Spring May Flowers.

Aubameyang may well be starting THE season of his career. A fotballer’s career is over in a flash. Remember Nasri joining us and showing so much talent? He is now 34 and a free agent. That’s how quick it goes.

Pierre is now 32, just two years younger than Sammy Nassery, as we used to sing his name.

I don’t know him of course but I have sensed that PEA had hoped for one more transfer to reach the Apex of European top clubs, say Barca or RM, or mayby even Juventus, the last few summers. They did not come and he excepted the golden jail ticket that Arsenal offered him.

Arteta started to build something new and C19 happened. We witnessed an Auba who was often not cooking with gas, struggling to fit into Arteta-ball and not being the inspirational leader we had hoped he would be. There were family reasons too of course.

I think he still has hopes to make one final move but nobody came as yet, and now it is time to focus fully on Arsenal again.

Last season was not great but if Pierre can embrace his situation and work his socks for Arteta and the team, he can make all the difference once again.

For this he has to be passionately committed, embrace his fate, and find joy in being such a pivotal player in the Arteta revolution. It’s about doing his epistemic best and learn to live in the moment again. I really hope he does.

And that a career can still reach its apex late on was made clear by one of the finest Gunners of the 21st century, Ollie Giroud, who won the shiniest silverware in the ‘fall’ of his one and is still going strong at almost 35!

Come on Prince Pierre. We need you to rekindle your fire and embrace your self declared mission for this team. The rewards will be very, very sweet.

  • Fine post Total.

    Lets hope that both Lacca and Auba regain their top form, with the old heads and the new blood we could have a chance to become a surprise element.

    I fear the next two games will be a bridge to far – but we can always hope to spring a surprise.

  • We’ve checked-in with our medical team ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match against Chelsea.

  • Cheers GN5, I have a good feeling about tomorrow’s game. If I was Chelsea I would not want to play us at the home of football tomorrow

  • TA, there’s nothing I would love more than to have Auba firing on all cylinders again. I wait in hope and with bated breath. He just needs to take some risks in 50-50s, even where it hurts a bit.

    As for the game tomorrow, it may be one of those games where we deploy Elneny to the detriment of either a forward or a midfielder. We’d see how it goes. Whatever happens, all I want to see is some fight and clinical finishing.

  • Been busy at work, so catching up now Total, a really nice post mate, from the heart.

    You know it would be an awful shame if Auba’s Arsenal career was defined by it winding down without a whimper especially after the great times he’s given us up the FACup final of 2020.

    There could be many many reasons why he didn’t maintain his standards last season, family, health, mental health even, this WuFlu has affected us all in so many different ways and footballers are not automated, they’re people like us.

    Arsenal are evolving into a different animal a lot different from the beast he joined back in the dying embers of Wenger. He’s lived an unbelievable period in anyone’s life at Arsenal, played under four managers, experienced the highs and the lows and yes, maybe there was a chance for him to realise his ambition of playing for Barcelona, but he took the Arsenal contract and our adulation and maybe regretted it a tad afterwards, who knows?

    I’m hoping that he can recapture his verve whilst surrounded by a team of youthful exuberance, boundless energy and technical brilliance, I’m sure that Martin, Emile, Bakayo, Nicolas, Martinelli and Co will deliver him the goods, he just needs to rekindle his hunger and enjoy the feast.
