Go! Go!! Arsenal!!! Let us beat Sheffield Utd and get our groove on by Lagos Gooner
Tomorrow is Saturday and it is a day when we play our next game against Sheffield United in the English Premier league. With Arsenal rising and falling in recent games I have decided to rally my fellow Gooners.
‘We are Arsenal and we are proud”. I love that slogan a lot! Over the years, I have learnt that we become what we wish to become and not what people want us to become. In life, I have learnt to always make myself happy and not leave that for others to do. Let us face it, in this world, we all struggle to make an impact and leave lasting legacies; but then things don’t always turn out how we want, does it? In a situation whereby we have tried something and we don’t get results, what do we do? We keep our heads up high, motivate ourselves and try again. At Arsenal, we have been faced with many trying times but we are still standing tall. Others have labeled us as team that is dead and buried; yet I see us as a team in transition.
There is nothing we are facing at the moment that qualifies us as failures. Other clubs have been through this rough patch and come out strong. Some are still battling to remain relevant, after losing their position at the top table. We are Arsenal and we are a great team. When we rise, people will be shocked but then, who cares?
Against Sheffield United tomorrow, we will be low on confidence. A draw against Crystal Palace was all that was needed to burst our bubbles. After winning against Manchester United and Leeds United, our confidence was starting to be on the rise until we drew against Palace. We didn’t just draw the game, we also lost our talisman to a red card in that game. It can’t get worse than that but it can get better.
Tomorrow against Sheffield, our players will try to redeem their images. The attackers that will play in that game will score goals and not make us miss our Auba. Our world class goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, will be aiming to keep a clean sheet again. Our midfielders will make things happen from the middle of the field. Our defenders will continue with their new found rugged way of defending. The coach will try and get his tactics spot on; while also knowing when and how to make a good substitution to turn a losing team to a winning team. Come on Gooners, the team needs our support against Sheffield; let us give them an overdose of our support. We are Arsenal and we are proud.
