I think as fans we’ve been terrible to him too. Not that online presence - Reddit, Twitter-represents true fandom or appreciation but we’ve been so terribly fickle during a really hard year for the man. Right off the back of him single handedly pulling his 10 team mates to an FA Cup victory against two gross money clubs.
I’d absolutely love to see him have another couple of seasons of scoring buttloads of goals and pulling us up the league table. This is just going to be a massive year in general and I’d love to see Auba succeed and Arteta, but the two are very dependent on each other. Finally time to build a team that revolves around Auba at CF and gets the ball to him in the box at every opportunity.
