Published by:

Amaechi signs contract with Arsenal

Arsenal have submitted their squad list for the knockout stages of the Europa League and included in the squad are two young kids of Nigerian decent. Talented winger Xavier Amaechi and solid center back Joseph Olowu,  both of whom recently signed their first professional contracts with the Gunners have made the Europa league cut and they will join Alex Iwobi as the three Nigerian players in the Arsenal team for the competition.

Olowu, who celebrated his 18th birthday on November 27, 2017, has been rewarded with a new deal thanks to his impressive displays for Arsenal’s U18 and U23 teams.
He has trained on several occasions with the Gunners first team filled with the likes of Per Mertesacker, Jack Wilshere, Nacho Monreal, Petr Čech and Alexandre Lacazette.
Olowu was spotted by Arsenal scouts at the age of thirteen while training with Charlton Athletic, and was snapped up by the Emirates outfit after impressing the coaching staff during trials. This season, he has made several appearances for Arsenal amateur squads.
The youngster who joined the north London club in August 2013, at the age of 12, progressed to become a key figure in the club’s youth setup.
Blessed with searing pace and an eye for goal, Amaechi has featured for both the Under-23’s and Under-18’s this season and has scored a number of goals in the campaign.
Nigeria will be waiting in the wings and hoping these players can develop more into full time professional football and like Iwobi,  the country would hope that the young Arsenal stars will opt to represent their fatherland in international games and competitions.

ARSENAL’S LOSS TO SWANSEA DAMNED THEIR FANS’ EXCITEMENTS OVER THE ARRIVAL OF AUBAMEYANG

Published by:

London’s most storied football club Arsenal were the butt of internet trolls after the club’s latest low moment, losing to bottom of the table Swansea on a rainy Tuesday night in Wales.
The trolls ran the gamut of ‘Wenger out’ over the dismal performance of the Arsenal players who looked bizarrely not up for the fight as they slumped to a very embarrassing 1-3 defeat to Swansea who needed the win to climb out of the bottom of the EPL table.
Yet there was little to suggest things were going to turn this ugly.
Going into the match there was a swagger  amongst the Arsenal fan base, despite selling their most prolific scorer Alexis Sanchez last week to rivals Manchester United.
However, the Gunners had acquired a talented midfield player from the Red Devil’s in Henrikh Mkhitaryan in return and had just outplayed and beaten London fierce rivals Chelsea 2-1 to qualify for the final of the League Cup.
Most exciting was the news prior to kick off that the much sought after striker to fill the goalscoring void left behind by Sanchez, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund was at Arsenal’s Colney training ground to undergo his medicals before joining The Gunners.
It was clear at the start of the game that the feel good factor was affecting the Arsenal players and they swaggered their way through the opening minutes, seeming to think that just turning up alone was a guarantee of victory. But they met a defensively resolute Swansea who also had a clever attacking game plan which they executed beautifully.
Arsenal’s manager summed up his club’s performance succinctly when he said post game: “We made unusual and massive mistakes that was the killer. Unfortunately I believe we were not good enough, I believe we were not disciplined enough.
“Overall we were not convincing defensively and not convincing offensively and in the end we lose the game. Maybe it highlights the whole lack of quality of concentration that we didn’t have tonight.”
