Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (14)


#822

Well I was at the game yesterday and I can tell you that Auba spent plenty of time in his favoured position standing around doing fuck all.

There are clear reasons why both players didn’t perform optimally over the last two seasons but you only want to cut one of them any slack. Go figure.

Goal and an assist…

Just looks dangerous every time he makes a run to create space.

He and Laca are forming a lethal attacking duo


#825

Need him in big form from now. Him and Laca are gonna take the Premier League by the storm :kos2:


#826

Make that a brace!

:fire: :fire: :fire:


#827

Picking up his form at the right time because we’ve got a decent fixture list after the break.

His class was never in doubt.


#828

Have had him as FF captain since week one. First game it’s paid out and he didn’t even start :slight_smile:


#829

Guys class, his poor form was always going to be short lived.

Remember when people were questioning his lack of goals this campaign ? 8 in all comps now :fire:


#832

Got that fresh cut going on. Goals were inevitable.


#833

16 goals in 22 matches for us, now THATS a return worthy of a top striker tbh.


#834

Yeah that’s about 27 league goal pace if you were available for the full 38 matches.


#835

How many clubs can use him as super sub? That’s the best thing this season.


#836

for how many games will he be okay being a super sub?


#837

Emery needs to stop messing around and play both him and Laca together. We’re just so much more lethal with both on the field.

They have too good a connection for one to be on the bench. Auba being benched in favour of Mhki is just criminal.


#838

It feels good to be able to bring 50mil off the bench. City who?


#839

It should really be dependent on the situation of the match really. To just say ‘play them together no matter’ is unreasonable and its proven not to be consistently successful when they start together.

Situations like yesterday is how they should be used imo. It’s gives us a significant advantage bring fresh legs and that quality off the bench


#840

They have played together a lot recently, tbh. Emery is just rotating them atm. It’s normal.


#841

You can say that but on another day we could have been 3-0 down by the time we equalised.

Considering we concede a great deal of chances and ride our luck in games I don’t think we can afford to leave Auba on the bench, we will get punished eventually.

Rotation and the like is fine but for me they should generally be lining up together particularly as our wide options are dire overall.
