Aubameyang beats Nobbs to September Goal of the Month

Aubameyang wins another accolade!

The good news just keeps coming where our captain is concerned. Another poll and another number one spot.

After an impressive and positive start to the season for our boys, in which our skipper has also put pen to paper and signed “da ting”, his strike which helped to seal a 3-0 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage back in September has been voted as the Goal of the Month.

With 40% of the vote Aubameyang pipped Jordan Nobbs’ rocket of a strike against Tottenham which finished on 25% of the vote and Vivienne Miedema’s bullet of a strike against Reading which finished with 10% of the vote, to the title. And so he should win, because the strike was just a trademark Aubameyang strike as we have seen him do that previously, what build up, what an angle and what a strike.

Despite failing to score since the opening game of the season, he has been a massive figure in our team, although he has been quiet since, he has helped our boys win three games out of four so far, losing just the one game to Liverpool along the way.

I hope he manages to find the form that he had come the end of the season, but if his goals have dried up, I hope he can continue to help the team in other ways so that we can carry on this impressive form after the international break, starting of course with Manchester City on the weekend!

Congratulations again to Mr Aubameyang whom I hope is fit and raring to go after pulling out from international duty with the ankle injury he picked up from the Sheffield United game just before the players went on their break as we do need him in our team no matter what he does on the day. Gooners?

    Call me old fashioned if you wish but I see little use or point in comparing goals by men to goals by women. The simple truth is that women keepers are hopeless when compared to men keepers. The physical disadvantages of all women compared to men, in strength, stature, speed, etc are FAR MORE MARKED IN KEEEPERS than in outfield players. THAT fact alone , irrespective of othersalient factors too, make the comparisons pointless.

    To be clear, I am a massive supporter of womens football and consider it a long overdue leap in social progress from relatively recent years ago.

    But as a realist and truth lover, I do not confuse the game in standard with that of men. I refer only to top level in both sexes.

    MERELY BECAUSE BOTH SEXES HAVE AN EQUAL RIGHT TO PLAY OUR GREAT SPORT, DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE TWO STANDARDS ARE THE SAME. CLEARLY THEY ARE NOT.

      I totally agree with you, especially the keepers limitations in the women’s game.

      Thailand’s women keeper say hello.

      I think women’s football has come far enough and I enjoy it equally as I enjoy men’s. The men’s is more passionate than women’s because of emotional investment but for entertainment value they are equal to me.

        HH, I ALSO ENJOY WOMENS FOOTBALL BUT JUST NOT AS MUCH AS MENS. IT IS LESS DYNAMIC, LESS SKILFUL AND LESS PACEY.

        And keepers stand out like a sore thumb, which is the biggest problem it has to be taken seriously by men brought up on mens football when we were young. A shame that we had no womens football around back then but we did not, not at the level we have now anyway, But it is still far less exciting and always will be because of the pure physical differences.

          When you said about goalkeepers the Thailand keeper immediately came to mind. If you haven’t watch the highlights on YT USA women vs Thailand women where they won 13-0. Its like Thailand were playing with an empty goal.

            HH, I just watched highlights of the USA v Thailand 13-0 rout. That is hilarious, the goalkeeping is non existent.

    Partey and Xhaka, Tierney and
    Belleri will provide the killer passes for
    Arsenal to back home the three points
    from Manchester City.
