Arsenal limp over the line against gritty 10-man Watford

Published

on


Arsenal managed to get only their second Premier League away win since late November, although we were hardly convincing.

Our side was not only gifted the opening goal after a shocker from Ben Foster, who literally gave the ball to Aubameyang inside the box for the opener, but with only 10 minutes of the match played were also given a personnel boost.

You will hardly be shocked by the news that Troy Deeney was the man to pick up a red card tonight, but trying to be neutral I feel like it may not have been as bad as it was treated. The England striker seemed to throw his arm up a tad when running past Torreira in the middle of the park, and was shown a straight red.

Despite such a great start for our side, and the given advantages, Watford had much of the possession and a number of chances, and our boys struggled to command any real dominance at all.

The game looked like it was going to give us a painful ending, with our side looking overly likely to hold onto our record of being the only English league side to not have a clean sheet away from home, but thankfully we have shifted that one tonight.

Andre Gray came awfully close after getting in behind the defence and rounding the keeper, only for Maitland-Niles to come to our rescue, and in reality if he still had his strike-partner on the pitch they would more than likely have scored at least once…

Am I being too harsh on the overall turnout of the match? Did Arsenal need that extra man advantage? Is it time to start feeling confident of a top four finish?

Selling Aubameyang debate shows something has gone very wrong at Arsenal

Published

There is an argument that now is the right time to sell Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and use the money raised to bring in new players.

Arsenal, it is being argued, can replace Aubameyang within its ranks with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah primed to play in his role in the event he is sold.

What utter nonsense.

Not the proposal, that on the face of it does make sense but the idea that it has to be Aubameyang sold to raise funds that is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion.

When a club is unable to sell its deadwood and instead have to offload its top scorer then you know something has gone badly wrong somewhere.


Selling players to raise funds is normal transfer business, Liverpool sold Coutinho, Tottenham sold Bale, Man Utd sold Ronaldo and so on but each time they were forced to do that in the face of massive offers and the respective players desire to leave.

That is not the case with Aubameyang.

Arsenal has a ton of players that are simply not up to scratch, their names are so common I do not even have to name them but it is the Golden Boot winner that is being mooted to be sold.

Our top-six rivals have no issues selling their fringe players and for the most part, getting a decent transfer fee in return and yet, for some reason, Arsenal struggle to do the same.

If we sell Auba and keep the likes of Mustafi I would be utterly speechless and the sad thing is, I would not be surprised if that actually happens.
