Another week where the news was dominated by Corona Virus and UEFA announced that the European Championships - due to take place this summer - is now being moved to 2021. England's football authorities also said they will delay the start of the 2020-21 season until the last ball has been kicked in the 2019-20 campaign, stating Premier League and EFL seasons will "absolutely finish before the next one begins."
Back to Arsenal, It was dominated by throwbacks. Arsenal media on Twitter decided to have a reloaded session on Wednesday and showcased the Arsenal Leicester match from 2017.
The team was announced and it was the game where Lacazette made his debut for us. A lot of fans were very confident he would go on and score in his first match for the Gunners:-
Lacazette didn't disappoint as he scored inside the first 2 minutes of the game - much to the joy of Arsenal fans.
Leicester scored 2 goals in the first half but Welbeck scored in the final minutes of the first half and made it 2-2
Welbeck, in Arsenal fans hysteria, was compared with Pele!
In the second half, Vardy scored for Leicester and Ramsey came on as a sub and made an impact to make it 3-3, making Arsenal fans realise how good a player he was for us and how crucial he was for the team. A loft of fans wanted the Welshman to end his career at the club...
Giroud scored the 4th goal for us as we went on to win the match. Giroud showed his qualities and again saved Arsenal, coming off the bench. He was so good at scoring late goals - a lot of fans weren't surprised by it.
Back to the present day, London went into a lockdown because of the Corona Virus, but that didn't stop Arsenal fans singing about what they think of Tottenham.
Thierry Henry showed his class with the 'stay at home challenge.'
We were reminded why Henry is the best striker to ever play in the Premier League with Rio Ferdinand saying he was scared to face him!
Meanwhile Aubameyang continued working hard on his fitness, which shut down a lot of rivals who say he is a bad influence to his teammates.
Emery said Ramsey left Arsenal for a bigger club and that had some strong reactions from the fans.
Those were the talking points from this week. As things stand, there will not be much present day football to talk of for the next few weeks, although there are nominal dates for things to start up again – the Premier League on April 30th for example, we really have no idea if that’s realistic. Each day brings new information about the spread and scale of the problem. It seems unlikely that football, players and the fans will be ready to go at that point.
This will be all of us when football returns to our lives
Stay Home Stay Safe. Hope you all have a great week.
