I’m happy for Aubameyang as long as Arsenal keep winning without him

Auba makes history as Arsenal also secure three points!

This weekend has been a good one for Arsenal, as we secured another win, this time against a Brentford side who shockingly defeated us in game week one.

But it wasn’t just Arsenal players and fans who were all smiles this week as ex-star Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang gave both himself and Barcelona players and fans a reason to smile too.

Having not scored in his previous three appearances for his new club, and having received a less than impressive round of applause when coming off in their last game against Napoli, he has quickly turned into the hero at the Nou Camp in the space of three days.

In his fourth appearance, he has already walked away with the match ball after scoring a hat-trick in Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Valencia. So having been there less than one month, for now he has three goals in four appearances, which is not a bad stat to have.

After initially walking away with two goals to his name, after Pedri thought he had scored Barca’s fourth, it seemed as though the shot from Pedri got a slight deflection on, from Aubameyang, which was enough for him to be credited with the goal, and meant he could claim his first hat-trick and first set of goals for Los Culers.

By scoring a hat-trick Aubameyang has now made history by becoming the first player in the 21st century to score hat-tricks across the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1.

Fans and me in particular have been worrying where our goals would come from without Auba in our side, although we did manage to win games without him, however as a previous star striker of ours you can be forgiven for thinking the worst.

And had Arsenal lost this weekend it would have clearly been seen as rubbing salt in our faces although he was just doing his job.

However maybe now we can all rest easy knowing something good seems to be bubbling at the surface at the Emirates and Auba may finally be finding his confidence and goalscoring form, which is the best all round for everyone concerned.

  1. Aaah shít, here we go again.
    Another couple of months to constantly bring up another player who served us and is living his life elsewhere now.
    What’s the point in talking about Auba?
    Unlike one certain Argentine goalkeeper, Auba hasn’t been talking about us, he is not talking about us. Rightly so because he’s focused on his career, but down here at Justarsenal, we have to constantly talk about players that ain’t here no more

  2. Auba has been a goalscorer all his career so I am expecting him to score lots of goals at Barca. His main strength is his excellent positioning which allows him to score lots of goals. At Arsenal, Arteta’s tactics didn’t fit his style of play and no wonder when he was scoring a lot under Arteta he was playing as a LW which is where he should’ve been used this season. He may have an attitude problem but not every player with an attitude problem allows it to reflect on the pitch which is why he has produced the goods everywhere he has gone. Hopefully he continues to score more for Barca so people will see he wasn’t past it which is the usual cliche when players reach a a certain age. He may have lost a bit of sharpness but his positioning should see him through. I don’t miss him as he’s not an all rounder and I wish him well.

  3. He obviously didn’t want to stay at Arsenal. His displinary and performance issues are similar to the ones he did at Dortmund, to force his exit

    I will just remember his heroic effort for our last FA Cup trophy and his nice goals. I’m happy to see him more committed to duels in Spain

    We shouldn’t buy another CF who only focuses on goalscoring without having other teamwork skills

  4. We moved on from the departures of Viera, Henry, Fabregas, Fleb, Song, Van Persie and Nasri. The only ones I don’t want to remember are those who left on an unhappy way: Ashley Cole, Mezut Ozil, Sammy Nasri, Gal Cliche, a certain Russian, and Auba. So, let’s forget about those who didn’t want to be here and concentrate on the beautiful young players we have here. I have the feeling that arsenal is about to create a new story with the youngsters we have.

  5. I don’t wish Auba well or ill to be honest, he can’t help us anymore and that’s it as far as I’m concerned, life goes on

    BTW He scored a hat trick for us this season as well

    BTW2 Henry went to Barca and won a Champions League medal with them but I would be shocked if he now looks back at that with the same pleasure that he looks back on what he did for Arsenal

    BTW3 Bergkamp hung those golden boots up when he finished playing for us, the perfect (as always with him) way for a player to leave us in my view

  6. I NEVER HAVE DONE, DO NOT, AND NEVER WILL UNDERSTAND THE MENTALITY OF FOLK LIKE SHENEL, WHO SEEM TO CARE MORE ABOUT AN EX PLAYER WHO LET US DOWN BADLY OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD THAN SHE DOES FOR THE PRESENT AND NEAR FUTURE SUCCESS AND HARMONY OF OUR CLUB.
    On this player preferred to club theme, I DISTANCE MYSELF FROM ALL who oddly take the players side against the club those fans claim to support.

    PLAYERS ARE ONLY EMPLOYEES AND COME AND GO AND USUALLY CEASE TO CARE OVERMUCH ABOUT OUR CLUB ONCE THEY HAVE LEFT.

    Sometimes they seem not to care even while we employ them! Auba is typical of that self entitled sort. I care nothing of him, nor for him, since he let us down hugely. I regard him as effectively an “enemy” of our club, for the last season and a half.

    But then I would wouldn’t I, since I love the club first and always and well above players who prove to be ONLY second class humans. THOSE EX-PLAYERS AND PRESENT PLAYERS WHO HAVE HONOURED THE CLUB AND DISTINGUISHED THEMSELVES BY GIVING THEIR UTMOST, I REVERE WITH A PASSION THOUGH.

  7. I am happy that Aubamayang moved on even if Arsenal do not keep winning games (opposite the articles title). I liked Auba (and I still like Auba). If he goes on to score a lot of goals for Barca that does not mean that he would have done the same had he been kept at Arsenal. Sometimes a move generates new motivation and it seemed like he had lost motivation at Arsenal. It is obvious that something changed from the time he got his big contract – and it wasn’t the tactics or the system. The goals dried up for Auba before Arteta decided to try him in a different position – but the goals still did not come. It appears that Auba was just done at Arsenal in his own mind. It is always complicated and probably included his personal relationship to the manager, his relationships with other players, tactics that were less suited to his counterattacking style of play, his life outside of the club etc… For whatever combination of reasons his efforts on the pitch slacked off, and if the gossip is correct, his impact in the dressing room became more negative, while still being our highest paid player. I think it was best to have him moved on to remove the negativity and free up the funds for the current project that is being built.
