When Arsenal coach Unai Emery was asked about Alex Iwobi’s supersub performance against Liverpool, he had this to say..⠀
“His energy is important, so is his quality. He can improve. He can do better. He scored against Chelsea, I want him to be nearer the box, having chances to score more. ⠀
“He can. He is very young. He is improving. But also he has the ambition to do more.”⠀
Iwobi has had an excellent start to the Gunner’s new era under Emery. The Nigerian 🇳🇬 has become a fan favorite and will be looking to build on his performances and secure his spot in Emery’s starting XI.
“There is a lot of brouhaha over some bad results at the moment, which is understandable, but there’s no need for it – it’s all part and parcel of the process. Puel’s project is finally taking its shape, and it’s only a matter of time before Leicester make winning a habit”. More in my post-match piece (link in bio). #AFC#LCFC#ArsLei
Arsenal last night defeated Leicester city 3-1 to climb further in the league standing. More interesting is the reminder served by the third goal on the need to subscribe to the sport as the most potent weapon to preach, teach, and nurture life skills. There were deft and magical touches to the third goal beginning with the goalkeeper and ending with a tap-in from Patrick Aumbameyang. Those fast, pacy and eccentric combinations underline the power of the collective. Alone is dangerous. We do more with people. We all understand collaborations, but what do we do with teaming? Empathy, leadership, teamwork, discipline, communication, sacrifice are best taught in the sport. It is an arguable fact that sport inculcates valuable life skills in an individual who plays the sport. As fast as that goal was; excerpts below bullet-pointed lessons only sport can teach: The goalkeeper initiates the attack - Foundation is key. Solid structures are built on a deeply rooted foundation. Are you laying any?
Everybody Counts – teams just don’t mean people combining. It is a combination of like minds who count or contribute to the process.
Play your path – when you play your path, you empower others to build on a sequence of positive energy. Hence, overall result is impacted positively
Start with the end – when the goalkeeper initiated the moves, it was forward oriented. It is only anticipated result that propels seamless progression.
Teamwork makes the dream work
– the tap in simplified individual contributions and make result looks cheaper. Collective efforts make individual effort simple. If it is collective, it is concrete.
We are in awe as what sport can teach. They are not in the school curriculum. They are in ‘sportedu’; educating and learning with the sport. The innovative curriculum for all-round development.

Con un Mesut #özil como jefe de orquesta y líder en el campo el técnico 🇪🇸 supo darle al alemán la contención, importancia y rol que necesita para destacar. Lo hizo dueño del equipo: ✅Dándole la cinta de capitán ✅Adaptando el sistema a su juego ✅Modificando toda la banda izquierda ✅Aprovechando su retiro de la #mannschaft para explicarle metodología y táctica
En el pasado encuentro vs @lcfc se convirtió en el máximo anotador alemán en la historia de la @premierleague con 3️⃣0️⃣goles
Muchos dicen que juega cuando quiere, yo digo que juega CUANDO lo quieren.
#emery sacará lo mejor de él sin dudas

You see ehn, when I take a side, I stick with my side through thick and thin. And it always pays off.
So, I became a #Gunners thanks to @kingkanu4 and @thierryhenry. And despite the many years of serious hearbreaks after their era, pressures from the Blues and Reds, and all the other Inbetweeners around me, I stayed a #Gunner4Life !
Now, just look at this pretty sight!
Just ne go du this GOAL!
The Hawks already started hovering, but for me, it will always be @nip4all. I ain't going no where guys!
