Talk Sport have a reputation for being very anti Arsenal. They got a bit desperate the last few days though. With nothing fresh to beat us over the heads with, they resorted to criticising Aubameyang’s recent celebration. “What’s more pathetic then a grown man looking for his mask?” they ask.
How about grown men getting so worked up about it?
Now to clarify, I’m aware for a long time this radio station has chosen to use sensationalism to get attention. The more ridiculous the headline, the more clicks they get, which they base as a success. They realised some Gooners get offended by it so bite back, hence becoming their target audience. By writing this article I too am giving them the attention they want, even promoting their product. Yet I made a vow to report subjects involving my team and putting it on here for us to debate.
Where these presenters lose credibility to their peers is that they have become known for one thing, being in the minority for the sake of it. Meaning the one day they have a serious opinion about something, they won’t be listened to, as you won’t be able to separate what’s real emotion compared to the act they put on to get ratings.
So, when they want to talk about ‘Leaving Neverland’ you question whether they are now giving a human response or playing the act they do every week? How to you know the difference between their honest view point to their ‘I’m going to say something so stupid, people will talk about it’ routine.
Like do they really want to go down the route of dissecting how a goal is celebrated? Should a man in his late twenties be finding enjoyment in dressing up as a superhero? In that case, are not all celebrations juvenile?
Spurs, multi-millionaires remember, take time out of training to plan their new cool handshake. That’s what we used to do in the playground in year 3. Why is Lingard pretending to be M Jackson? Why does Ronaldo feel the need to show off his abs? Why does anyone have a personality? Why not just run back to the half way line straight away? Of course, Talk Sport don’t believe this. They’re just trying to wind up a fan base but this time made themselves look desperate.
By the way if Aubameyang scores the winner in the Europa League Final, then I don’t care what mask he wants to put on.
