Each week I’ll be bringing you Arsenal Tweets of the Week. This is a roundup from a small selection of Arsenal-related tweets as chosen by me.
Alexis, Alexis, Alexis. Yet again you have been dominating Twitter after yesterday’s brace against the Black Cats and you certainly appear to be the only bright light for Arsenal fans at the moment – so much so that yesterday they voted you Man of the Match. Your second goal of the match officially took you into club landmark history. I’m sure you need telling that Steve Bould was the first to score for Arsenal in the EPL.
1500 – Alexis Sanchez’s second goal was the 1500th that Arsenal have scored in the Premier League. Landmark. — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 25, 2014
So peeps, what are your views on this Tweet? It’d be great if Arsenal could play more as a team but if the “dominant” player is helping us to get the results we so desperately need then does it really matter? Technically there is no team in Arsenal, but if there was and you could take the team out you’d still have Alexis!
Alexis clearly the star of this team so far but controversial question.. Is his dominance preventing the others from playing better? — Mean Lean (@arsenalvision) October 25, 2014
These Tweets also show that it’s all about Alexis lately …
Alexis FC not Arsenal FC imo — DC (@DeanLDN22) October 25, 2014
Thanks to Culann Davies (@CulannDavies) for retweeting this one. I rather suspect that if Muneeb (@GOALOTELLI) is retrospectively looking at his tweet from July 2014 he may now be thinking rather differently. So far in the EPL Raheem Sterling has scored three goals as well as notching up two assists in 733 minutes over nine games. Meanwhile, in 410 minutes played over six games Adam Lallana has scored just one goal and has zero assists (not quite sure what has happened but Lallana’s definitely not making Messi look shite this season). What about our very own Alexis who was touted as a flop? He’s scored five goals and two assists in 601 minutes played over eight games. I don’t even need to go into the metrics to show you just how wrong this tweet has turned out to be. Eat your hat Muneeb, eat your hat.
Glad we’re not signing Sanchez, Sterling is twice the player and Sanchez isn’t PL proven like Lallana so I think he’ll flop at Arsenal. IMO — Muneeb (@GOALOTELLI) July 10, 2014
Yet again I bring up the subject of Arsenal’s season upon season injury crisis. I have no idea what the ‘bloke from Twitter’ route is, but with both Kieran Gibbs (hip) and Mikel Arteta (thigh) being substituted due to injury yesterday surely anything’s worth a try?
All the methods Arsenal have tried to fix the fitness issues, maybe they should try the ‘bloke from Twitter’ route.. — David (@Jagsy10) October 25, 2014
And here’s another witty Tweet about Arsenal’s injuries – unfortunately it’s (almost) scarily true!
Arsenal at the moment are losing a defender a week until finally only one will remain. It’s the Great British Ache-Off. — Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils) October 25, 2014
That’s all for this week. Let’s hope the forthcoming week will bring more
Alexis Arsenal-related Tweets to the forefront. In the meantime I probably won’t be singing ‘We gonna rock down to Alexis Avenue, and he make the score go higher.’
