Gonzalo Higuain of Chelsea and a Nation’s Atikulated Next Level
Gonzalo, Gonzalo, a few of such players you find yourself calling his name twice (which flashes my mind back to our own Jay Jay Okocha. Word has it that, he was so good, you call him twice!). Gonzaol Higuain, shares such reputation. A striker well known for being so deadly in front of the goal posts.
Gonzalo is a clinical finisher that has played in prolific clubs all around Europe. His first notable club was Real Madrid where he scored 107 goals in 190 league appearances! He won three league titles in Spain and other honourary awards which helped build his profile before moving to Napoli and then, later joined Juventus for a transfer fee of €90 million in 2016! After some spell there, he was loaned to AC Millan which most pundits believe is as a result of the imminent arrival of almighty Cristiano Ronaldo.
The most recent spell is the loan move to Chelsea which is perceived to be a perfect business for both the club and player. Chelsea, as we all know is going through tough times due to poor performances from their strikers. Since Diego Costa went back to Atletico Madrid, the front-line of the blues has suddenly lost their feet and become less formidable—finding it difficult to score regularly. O ma seh o, (what a pity!), the likes of Michy Batshuayi, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud couldn't fill the Spaniard’s shoes. I guess that shoe must be monstrously gigantic!
Just hopefully, with the introduction of Higuain, Chelsea’s woes should come to an end. This Argentine has a reputation of finishing comfortably in front of goal.
Just as a nation we must not name, (or it be taken for a taboo), alongside her state head that is incapacitated—terribly that he could not even hear questions directed at him in a pre-planned interview session, talk less make coordinated response, yet believe that 4 + 4 should make 8!, Chelsea has suffered such shameful struggles amongst their club peers. Let us hope that as such referred nation, where the weakest rule over the strongest!, Chelsea will learn and overcome this lack of credible legs—putting squared pegs in round holes which has endowed them with scourge of reproach, amongst its peers.
Let us hope that the head-count master, Sarri of that divided nation, Chelsea be tensed to allow for fair counting of supporters which is expected to bring in a fairly steady team, like Hazard and Pedro, who are expected to atikulate, (pardon me), articulate the strength of the nation and score precision-goals (bearing it in mind that they have dependable strikers that can convert chances to goals), rather than the debilitated 4 + 4 mantra of Morata and Giroud, that are so blind to see that the next level of a game like Resident Evil, is tougher and more difficult! To which, we all should brace ourselves.
Although Gonzalo Higuain was brought on loan, Chelsea has the option of buying him on a permanent deal provided he lives up to expectation. In the meantime, let us all sit back, cool off and enjoy as the dribbles & trickles, the kungfu kicks and many stylist display and razzmatazz shall unfold in few days leading towards two days and St Valentine.
Who knows if below the belt punches are allowed at this season? We all have rightly observed such antecedents. Most recently, on a warhead of an arm of force characterized by being blind, fair and called the last hope of the masses…
