What’s the goal at Arsenal? Alexis gone wild again. by KM
Good day everybody! Those damn internationals are over and players will be heading back to the lands of their football clubs with one major issue – getting their focus back on club football. But the break has been good to the Arsenal family.
A lot of our players scored goals. Theo did, Giroud did and he really needed some, The Ox managed a goal and of course our best player, shining like a huge diamond on a wedding ring – Alexis – has banged 3 goals and an assist again. I mean the guy is just breathing football and rumors are we’ll give him a mega deal to keep him for as long as possible.
Why not? Arsenal harvests the fans like farmers harvest their lands. With a huge machine that reaps the rewards, the difference being that the fans don’t get what they should, for what they pay. But Alexis really is a one off. When you play for Barcelona, you’re always in Messi’s shadow. At Arsenal there was a chance for him to be the star man and he has flourished.
Talent like that is so rare these days. Give him 200k week, because if we don’t others will and modern football works on the back of ridiculous money. Besides, we were a charity to players like Diaby, Denilson, Park J.Y., Nick B, Chamakh and others who lived a fascinating lifestyle off of our club, without even featuring in a whole season of games.
Sometimes I really fail to get the idea at the club. We supported a lot of players, hoping for them to turn up like Fabregas and when we had to keep them we decided the money was not worth it? What’s the goal? It’s not the league title or the Champions League otherwise why would we leave our squad short of the two players we need to compete?
Goals and targets get the best out of you; make you look at something that can be achieved, and give motivation. Truth is, lack of ambition is what made Van Persie and Nasri among others leave us. Sure it’s great at Arsenal – the stadium is really nice, we are always friendly, there’s never any lack of spirit and so on, but after a few years, in a career which rarely spans to more than 15 years, you ask yourself, what do I achieve here?
I want to quit my job for the same reasons and many people who I have spoken to did the same thing. This and the past 2 – 3 years are the best chance to win the title in this chaos at all top clubs. City, Chelsea and United will try to buy their way back to success and Liverpool appointed what could be the best manager in England right now.
Anyway, we are coming back in high spirits from our last game and some good performances in the Euro qualifiers. Watford will be a tricky game, cause the newcomers always want to prove themselves against the big guns but look, City have Aguero, Silva, Kolarov and Kompany injured. It’s a great chance to catch them if they make a mistake.
Then it’s Bayern where we go all or nothing, but even if we win this one (which is an incredible ask on it’s own, looking how Bayern destroy teams for fun), there’s still a lot to do. Regardless, interesting times lie ahead and I can’t wait!
Have a nice week.
