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.
