  • There is one famous prayer point in Nigerian churches which goes something like : “may the same mouths that criticise you come to be the ones to praise you”.

    For many weeks, I read articles in paininthearsenal.com slaughtering Iwobi’s football suggesting that the Nigeria international is not Arsenal material.

    However in recent weeks, Iwobi has allowed his football to do the talking, now their tone has changed for the better.

    They dedicated a major part of their “5 things we learnt” article to Iwobi yesterday and it reads:

    “1. Iwobi is confident and contributing

    Alex Iwobi might well be in the best form of his career. He has looked increasingly confident in recent weeks, with Unai Emery trusting him more and more to play a prominent role in the Arsenal attack, and he relished the opportunity to be the creative hub here.

    He created two chances, completed four dribbles, more than any other player on the pitch, recorded another assist, his third in the Premier League and Europa League this season with a lovely, measured pass into the path of Emile Smith Rowe, and held up the ball exceptionally well, spinning away from defenders and driving Arsenal up the pitch with some nice and direct dribbling.

    Iwobi has always been a confidence player. When he is confident, he plays with a greater assurance and certainty. When he isn’t, he hesitates, delays, and flounders. At the moment, he is looking as confident as ever. And he is contributing. Three assists and a goal in 310 minutes of league and European action is good going.”

      I have also read some of their articles. They are truly a pain in the a$$!
