Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (14)


#923

It’s a bit of a rigid thought process that starting on the flank means scoring goals is automatically going to be harder. There’s all kinds of front three systems where scoring goals as a wide forward has actually looked easier. The modern game is dynamic enough for CF’s and LW’s to interchange positions.

Auba’s as service reliant as they come and is a master at getting into the space that the defender can’t cover. His back stick poaching is one of the best in the world and that accounts for most of his goals. He is equally prolific starting from any of the front three positions because he’s effectively still going to be at the end of chances in central positions.

This theory that playing the two up top together is going to optimise their threat more than now is kind of based on 4-4-2 era idealism more than practical end results.

This has been told to me before. But except for maybe four/five players (Robben, Neymar, C. Ronaldo, Suarez, Salah) in European football most wingers don’t touch 20 League goals in a season. Or that has to be an on average number since Robben was never healthy enough to play enough minutes. It’s still a very difficult feat to accomplish.

Lacazette and Aubameyang are actually quite complementary to each other. Even though Lacazette has a smaller frame he’s quite target man-ish and Aubameyang is not at all.

#926

The correct spelling! Thank you


#927

Benny McCarthy. Good times.


#928

Under-rated touch for the 2 yard assist.


#929

Frustrated with his misses vs Man Utd and today.


#930

Topscorer, but he could be far away from the rest had he put those easy chances back in the next against United and Hudders.


#931

I expect the best from him given his world class tag and that was a yet another horrible effort.

His finishing has fallen apart in the last few games, the drought shouldn’t last to long though as he always seems to be in the right positions for chances.


#935

I won’t worry a bit… even he is not scoring… his speed and movement really help creating chaos for the defenders, and open up space for Laca.
His assist on Torreira’s goal was pretty neat also.


#936

Still better than giroud…


#937

By the way we play, yes, Auba is better


#938

BEST STRIKER IN THE LEAGUE

:crown::crown:


#939

I love how his resume was full of simple and at times unenthusiastic goals, and then he comes here botching the simple ones and scoring the hard and impressive ones.


#940

As I said despite 3 or 4 games without a goal you knew it wouldn’t last long, he’s a top class striker and will score 30 in all comps as I expected.


#941

He is an excellent striker. Could have been easily 3/4 goals more. Some sitters missed.


#942

Gonna be some battle for the golden boot. I’d back Auba tbh
