“Let’s be honest” Aubameyang reacts to Burnley draw

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reacted to Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Burnley after they failed to win yet another Premier League game.

The striker gave the Gunners the lead in the first half, but the Clarets pegged them back before the interval.

Arsenal laboured for much of the second half, but they still couldn’t find a winning goal.

They were the better side and saw Nicolas Pepe miss a simple chance while Dani Ceballos hit the post.

The point means they have collected just 38 this season and they risk missing out on European football if they don’t win their next few games.

Arsenal even had a penalty decision given to them initially, but overturned by VAR and Aubameyang thinks that aside, they only have themselves to blame.

The club captain took to Twitter after the game and insisted that they should score more goals in a game like this when they created so many chances.

He then adds that they need to move on now and focus on the games ahead.

He tweeted: “Let’s be honest VAR on the side In this Game When you produce chances as we did Today we should won this Game but it is what it is!! Let’s move forward big week coming #COYG

    Captain’s message to take pressure off Xhaka and Leno. Classy.

    Tbh, the most disappointing aspect for me was the response after the mistake. I expected Arsenal to come out firing on all cylinders in the second half but, if anything, Burnley were by far the more threatening side after the break until the last ten.

    That’s what I hope Arteta is looking at today.

    1. Phil says:

      Try telling that to TMJW- according to him we deserved to win a game we completely dominated, and Burnley never showed up.
      I’m with you, Arteta couldn’t get a performance out of his players until it was too late. Against a Burnley side floating slightly over the relegation places.
      This shows how far we are falling under a novice manager who is taking us nowhere

    2. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

      Much like the latter Wenger years, we still show the propensity to play scared following any sort of shocking display by one of our players…this is the weak mentality that needs to be rooted from our club before we can ever expect to turn the proverbial corner

      as for the armband, Wenger totally devalued this honour when he was at his most fragile and didn’t want anyone that could usurp his ultimate authority, so he strategically give it to someone who was clearly in his pocket, who would never question him, or someone who was actually one of his clubhouse fine collectors, like Per and Mikel, or to someone who was on their way out come the following summer…the armband should never be used as a tool for the manager, but should be given to someone who can actually provide leadership on the pitch and likewise act in the role of a liaison between the players and the manager should it be necessary

    I share your assessment of the second half Trudeau.On another topic, next season , if he is still around,I sincerely hope Arteta appoints a new Captain as Auba is clearly not suited to this role for a number of reasons.To me, while I have reservations as to his reliability, playing wise, if he is considered good enough to play, Luis should be Captain as he has the leadership qua lities which Auba lacks.Holding and Tierney are others with the right mentality for the job.

      Grandad
      I totally agree with you on the subject of the captain role
      For many a season now we have ha ded the armband to the person who contract seems to be coming to an end and then continue with them after
      This might sound crazy bit to be honest I don’t think aubes warrants starting place
      He has been scoring but his missing have been over looked
      We have stopped pressing from the front when he plays
      He pressed first half and stopped 2nd half
      We stopped winning the 2nd ball we lost the tempo and control

    2. Marty says:

      Grandad, totally agree with you on the captaincy issue. Auba is not captain material and I fail to see how Arteta thinks he is. Like you I think I am from the McLintock / Adams era when the captain was a local and true leader.

      1. Marty says:

        vocal……….

    3. Big Jay says:

      Awesome choices of Captains Grandad, Tierney is a young man who shows great leadership, I think he deserve it.

  3. Nick says:

    Bukayo Saka for captain. He is our natural leader right now. He tries everything everywhere on d pitch when old horses are there just looking clueless. Poor boy is feeling betrayed I think

  4. Robert Artane says:

    This is a team of all sorts mix n match Arteta has NOT got it right and will never get it right until he learns himself as a Manager he is not qualified enough for such a Club as Arsenal. For instance
    EMIRATES FC v ARSENAL FC
    Leno
    Chambers Luiz Mari Tierney
    Partey Xhaka
    saka odegaard Willian
    Aubamayang
    verses
    Henry Berkamp
    Piers Lumberg Vieira Parlour
    Cole Campbell Keown Toure
    Lehmann
    It took A GREAT MANAGER to put this suad together and not expensive but then Dean left and it all fell apart, so on this it is obvious the American and Arteta need to go Arteta is just the American’s yes boy.
    THIS GAME would be a SLAUGHTER to ARSENAL FC

    1. Clement Manyathela says:

      I wonder if Arteta has realised that each game he plays his favorite boy we lose. Whenever this ex Chelsea boy plays we lose or draw

  5. Grandad says:

    Spot on Alan.The Captain of the team sets an example in terms of urgency and team spirit, Tony Adams being a prime example.Only the three players I mentioned have these qualities in my opinion.

  6. Robert Artane says:

    I hear the EMIRATES used far more than ARSENAL even the BADGE is NOT the BADGE it is facing the WRONG WAY it fires BLANKS

  7. Okumu Yaite says:

    For Arsenal Coach, & Players; making a mistake once ain’t a problem. But making COSTLY mistakes REPEATEDLY is not just a problem but a DISASTER!
    Arsenal players who repeatedly make costly mistakes, either are a joke in a BIG CLUB or Coach Arteta who repeatedly let’s them get away scot free, is a joke.
    The Mighty Arsenal FC can’t afford none of that nonsense. It must stop. Period!

  8. Mozein says:

    It is a mistake aand it happens but guys let’s move on big games ahead.We will do it this season
