Arsenal Season Preview

wW 



Following Arsenal’s shocking loss to Westbrom, Arsenal is now back on the chase for Benzema, personally I believe that Arsenal still needs a striker because Giroud is just too comfortable. I mean like if I were the only striker available I wouldn’t really care what happens, would play every match with the idea that I am the only one they need me, no one to replace me. This is where Benzema comes in,  if you have a striker like Benzema at Arsenal it would push Giroud to work harder therefore bringing out the best in him. If Arsenal still have that dream of winning the premier league this season they need a striker to give them this goals, as of now the midfield is solid, the defense is okay but not perfect. Another problem is the defense, Arsenal needs a solid central defender because personally I am not comfortable with Mertesacker being in that position, he is not just good for the position we need the likes of John terry, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and so on to guard the post as well as lead the team to victory because of their strong leadership qualities.

The midfield is perfect for now, it’s just awesome to have the talents of Cazorla,Ozil,Ramsey, Coquelin and Sanchez. Lastly kudos to Arsene wenger for capturing petr cech from Chelsea. Wish him lots of luck at Arsenal, he still needs to brush up a little bit and get used to the team but I believe he will do great things for Arsenal and for finally giving Walcott the chance to prove himself as a striker for the team.

He accepted the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance in July 2014, accepting the award, he said- "When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner in which you live:" 

Scott's famous catchphrases are forever imprinted on the walls of the new ESPN studio in Bristol, from his very famous "Boo-Yah!" to "As cool as the other side of the pillow"

Praying for his entire family in this very hard time, and I am certain that the great legacy he left behind will be cherished forever.

Toronto Raptors' President and General Manager Masai Ujiri was joined by some of sports biggest Icons in celebration of the life and legacy of former South African President and freedom fighter Nelson Mandela who died exactly one year ago. The gala event was held at the Air Canada center in Toronto in the Raptors practice facility, the event featured a panel discusssion between 5-time NBA Champ Magic Johnson, retired NBA player Charles Barkley, 8-time NBA All-Star and Congo's Dikembe Mutombo and Miss Universe 1999, Mpule Kwelagobe.

The gala event was followed by a game between the Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers in a game ended with the visitors taking home their sixth win in a row -105-91. Lebron James led the Cavaliers with 24-points and a season-best 13 assists.

The Nigerian-born NBA Exec who is also Africa's first executive with an NBA team was emotional as he said- “It's incredible to see Magic, Charles, Dikembe, the came here just like that. The world is not in a good place in my opinion and Mandela makes it better. He will be bigger, even though he's passed. He was bigger than life.”

The 44-year-old NBA Exec first met Mandela in the summer of 2006 in Johannesburg as an ambassador for the NBA community Program, Basketball without Borders, speaking fondly of the late Mandela he said- “Growing up I always remember watching the news with my dad, and I remember images of fire, fights on the street and I would see my Dad's reaction and I began to learn about Nelson Mandela.”
As I got older, it began to mean more to me what he had done. When I met him in 2006, it completely changed everything. He was someone I idolized.”


Proceeds from the event will go in support of Raptors boss Uriri's not-for-profit organization, Giants of Africa as well as the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Ujiri's foundation, Giants of Africa was formed in 2003, the non-profit organization helps educate and enrich the lives of African youths using basketball as a tool-providing them with camps, coaching and facilities.
