Saka is more proof that Arsenal have attackers to last us for ten years! by Lagos Gooner
Hello friends of Arsenal, how has your day been so far? I feel excited being a gooner today despite us only drawing against Standard Liege, I feel we are gradually getting our groove back.
Arsenal have a lot of talented young players and it would be unfair of me not to admit that they have all been impressive this season, in their own little ways. Guendouzi and Martinelli have been the young guns making waves this season in my own opinion, but just last night Bukayo Saka shot himself into the spotlight, with an excellent performance.
Bukayo Saka, the 17 year old Arsenal talent with an African background, seems to be gradually warming himself into the hearts of the Arsenal fans, with eye-popping performances in football games. Yesterday would probably be a day he won’t want to forget in a hurry. Ride on Saka!
The game last night was getting boring and it got to a stage that I nearly fell asleep while watching the game. I am so sorry to say this, but I had given up on Arsenal ever getting a result in that game, based on how we have been shaky at the defence since like forever. I even found myself telling the man who sat next to me, how we were going to lose the game by a wide margin of let’s say, 5-0! Yeah, it was that bad. But then, Saka had other plans..
Nine minutes after Liege scored their second goal, I was about ready to leave when from nowhere, I heard people screaming “Goal!” I turned around, only to realize that we had finally scored!. On watching the replay, I was amazed at how composed Saka was in whipping that cross in. I am very sure he must have felt as proud as I was in his crossing ability after Laca scored.
Our second goal was a masterpiece; it was a type of goal that a player like Messi would score effortlessly. Saka has good ball work and he also has pace. His dribbling skill is spot-on. With the likes of Saka and other young ones at Arsenal, I can only dream of a bright future for our club, spiced with sweet, attacking football. Please, don’t wake me from this dream yet. I forever remain a proud gooner from Lagos.
