YES!!! We have our Europa League striker!


#1467

Imagine Auba took two penalties off Penazette :rofl:


#1468

Hope this penalty gives him a confidence boost :slight_smile:

There is no I in team :slightly_smiling_face:

Believed this from the moment we signed Auba, that these two should definitely play together. They compliment each other well because they’re skilled in ways the other isn’t.

Laca’s false 9 style link up and hold up play, dribbling and positioning for cutbacks etc has been good since he signed. Problem for him was balancing that with getting in behind.

If you combine Laca’s play with Auba’s speed and ruthless goalscoring instincts, it’s such a dangerous combination for us.


#1471

Nice from him :slight_smile:


#1472

Didn’t want to embarrass Laca by scoring more goals than him this season despite only joining in Feb :rofl:. All jokes aside hopefully it gives him some confidence for the Europa League.


#1473

He is the first player to reach double figures this season.


#1474

saying that like it’s some sort of achievement in early April?


#1475

He clearly wasn’t.


#1476

Thought we were much better when he came on and have now seen him live :heart_eyes:


#1477

Yeah we were better, replacing Welbeck will do that for a side.


#1478

Post injury Welbeck is borderline Premier League level starter.


#1479

Just reporting a stat. Why do you hate him so much? :rofl:


#1480

He’s truly awful. I guess he’s going to start on Thursday and Wenger was trying to work him into some form. Quite a dream, that.


#1482

They always should, if not because of injury.
Starting them together and have Ozil to support, we have one of the best attacking trio in the league. Plus Miki, our attack should be very effective and we get our beautiful football back.
No way we should stick in a Welbeck or a Iwobi into the equation and screw things up.


#1483

Probably because most Arsenal fans were gloating he’d be the 30 goal a season striker we needed when we signed him, when I clearly knew he wasn’t going to be.


#1484

I think you’re massively overstating what people expected of him because you think it might lend some credibility to your obvious agenda.


#1485

Not sure gloating is the right word at all. His signing didn’t generate the same excitement as Auba’s for example. But so what if people thought he’d score more goals than he has. There is nothing wrong with having hope and belief?!

But hey, have a gold star for your negativity :star:
