As awards go, (whatever) of the month isn’t exactly a Nobel prize. I mean, it’s nice on a lot of levels, don’t get me wrong - if you’re employee of the month at your work, maybe you get a prime parking spot for a month, or maybe you get lunch with the boss, a bit of a bonus, or some other small yet nice little honor that says “you did a good job”. At most fast food places, you get your name on a plaque that the public often can see (even if they don’t pay attention).
But let’s face it. In 10 years, if you’re the average person, still coasting on “I was employee of the month in September 2019” means you’re pretty much Uncle Rico bragging about how you could throw a football over that mountain.
Still, in the moment, it’s a pretty cool honor - and today, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got that cool honor from the Premier League, as he was named
Employee Player Of The Month for September. In a month where he scored five goals in four games (PL only, remember), and singlehandedly kept Arsenal in several of those games, that’s a well-deserved honor.
